Hmm, looks like we have somewhat of a story arc going on here.
It looks like there's no love for the men on Valentine's Day in the Simpson family, especially for Bart, who can't seem to win Mary Spuckler's heart now that she has returned to Springfield
ETA: "I was not nominated for Best Spoken Swear Word." Liked seeing SLH as the WWI Flying Ace, and that couch gag with Moe as the whole family was creepy as hell.
So Mary's back, and so is much of her family. Good callback to the family's musical talents, too. Liked that Cletus's feuds include "Those Dang Muppets." I don't really understand why Bart became Woody Allen for this episode. So Mary became Annie Hall of a sudden? (although Lisa did dress up like her at the end) So Mary leaves...again. And Bart remains hopeful...again.
So...Bart has crap taste in girls and he and Homer don't know how to treat them. What a shock, there. No surprise that after all of the "Homer & Marge's marriage troubles" episodes, Homer has an apartment he goes to whenever Marge throws him out. Although I'm kinda sad it wasn't the same place Kirk went to when he was divorced from LuAnn.
Heh, they brought in Max Weinberg to make up for not getting Bruce Springsteen or Steve van Zant.
Okay, that British romance movie was great. Benedict Cumberbatch's cameo was probably my favorite part of this episode. How could you not like a movie with him, Prof. Snape, and [s]Winston Churchill[/s] Alfred Hitchcock coming out of the TARDIS to breakdance?
