Review

The series celebrates its 500th episode with a storyline similar to The Simpsons Movie. The residents of Springfield reach the end of their tethers over the family’s antics and run them out of town.

The plot may be as flabby as Homer, but there are enough moments of brilliance to remind you why The Simpsons has prospered for so long: an opening montage of all the series’ couch gags, which morph into a mosaic spelling out 500; a real coup in getting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to parody himself; a great visual gag about watching Fox; and Smithers finally learning how to get what he wants from Mr Burns.

Summary

The long-running animation reaches its 500th episode. Homer and his family are forced to leave town and live as outcasts after angering the people of Springfield one too many times. Helping them adjust to their new life is WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, while the cartoon's theme is given a makeover by singer Alison Krauss.
