  • Out of guilt, they agree to do something with him that he has always wanted to do and end up flying to Ireland so he can have a beer at a pub he used to frequent
  • This was definitely an interesting episode and much better than I expected (the whole traveling around the world plot thing is getting a bit old at times)

      I haven’t seen too many recent Simpsons episodes but I had a chance to watch a couple of them (in re-runs last night). One of those, “In the Name of the Grandfather” was kind of cool.

      I love how this episode starts out.

      The Simpsons end up buying a hot tub and, because they are too obsessed with


      relaxing in it, forget to attend an event at the senior citizen home with Grandpa.

      Out of guilt, they agree to do something with him that he has always wanted to do and end up flying to Ireland so he can have a beer at a pub he used to frequent.

      When they get there, they find out ...


      • the Pub is nearly out of business and are conned into taking it over.

        When they are unable to get customers, they decide to break the law and allow patrons to smoke.

        This gets them into a world of trouble.

        This was definitely an interesting episode and much better than I expected (the whole traveling around the world

        plot thing is getting a bit old at times).

        They kept a few twists (like Moe arriving to help out in a crate and they learn it was how one of the airlines treats its coach passengers).

        I do still think the show is going downhill a bit.

        But, this episode has me interested in watching some of the newer episodes again.
