Friday Filler – When Valentines Goes to the Dogs and Worse

I get it. Really, I do!  EA/Gracie have to stick to at least some semblance of storyline extracted from actual Simpson’s episodes.  But, man…this just took a nasty turn.

Even worse, when I went back to look at the full episode that this final portion of our Love Springfieldean Style (E12S19) event is based on, I was reminded just how much I hated it.

This episode is from the era of the Simpsons that almost destroyed the legacy of great writing that proceeded it.  Some would argue that the “Golden Era” ended after 10 years. But, I would argue that this past season has really been a return to clever, more personal stories that made the show great.

But, man…this episode…this “thing that defies description”…it really doesn’t cut it for me.

Don’t get me wrong…. I like a couple of the items we are getting for free this final chapter. But, the story behind it?  Not so much.

Let’s take a look…
