    I'm With Cupid - Best Season 10 Episode?

    I watched this the other night and was plesantly surprised by it, as it's one of my least seen episodes (Probably only seen it like 4/5 times since it's aired). The first thing which struck me was that the characterization was spot on i thought, and although a tad aggressive over the Apu situation, Homer was brilliant throughout the episode.

    Elton John's appearence wasn't amazing, but weren't terrible either, and i think the plot was wrapped up nicely and was overall a great episode.

    One of Season 10's finest 21 minutes.

    4.5/5

    I haven't seen it for years, but from what I remember, it was OK. Elton John was pretty stupid, but Apu's acts for Manjula were fun to watch and it was nice to see Homer and Marge do something other than argue in a relationship episode for once. 3/5 C+

    First two acts were good, the third kind of fell flat though. 3/5

    Nice episode which I haven’t seen for a long time. I wouldn’t say its the best episode of season ten though, as I think there are a couple of slightly better one’s. 4/5

    Very good episode. The first act is pure class. The second is very good and the third is a mixed. B/B+

    the pilot who homer had a fight with was funny. i also liked Moe's line - "he's making us all look like cheapskates...woah, there goes my rope"

    I found the line "...and Manula stands for some kind of spaceship" pretty funny.

    Very good episode with a nice ending. The scene with Apu & Elton John at the end was a little dumb. I enjoyed the sequence where the guys are following Apu around. Wasn't this the first appearance of Fantastic Dan?

    No, that was in Season 9's 'Bart Carny'

    Remember when Homer wanted to live in his whack-a-hole box, and Spud replies 'Fantastic Dan lives there', Dan pops his head up 'You called me, Spud?' and then the waiting Nelson hits him with a mallet

    2/5. Boring, silly, and Elton John didn't even sound like Elton John.

    It was OK. I don't think it was the highlight of the season, but it was better than most of the other episodes. 3/5

    I don't care for this much at all. I haven't seen it for a couple of years but I remember it being pretty boring.

    This is one of the better ones I suppose, but it's not really all that great. The best thing it has going for it is that is that it's fairly funny while not wrecking the characters too much. Beyond that, though, Manjula is just too bland a character for the main story to be interesting, and the subplot reeks of Captain Wacky. Definitely not the best of season ten, even if it's fairly high on the list given the competition.
    Two eyes, two ears, a chin, a mouth, ten fingers, two nipples, a butt, two kneecaps, a penis. I've just described to you the Loch Ness Monster. And the reward for its capture? All the riches in Scotland. So I have one question: why are you here?

    I can see how this episode is hit or miss but I personally really liked it. Its great seeing Homer interact so much with many of Springfield's other guys like Skinner, Moe, Wiggum etc. I wish they'd do more together.

    It was great for Apu because it showed just how different he really is from everyone else despite everything. It was also a great opportunity to see some characters we rarely see, like Sarah. The guys were a bit too inconsiderate to the point it was a bit over the top..but in general I had a lot of fun with this episode. Apu's scene with Elton John I thought was hilarious.

    Actually, I liked it quite a bit. One of my character flaws is that I can be a bit of a homophobe at times, so I saw Elton John's appearance as something of a turn-off. He wasn't even that funny anyway - his cameo may not have been as shameless as the ones in 'When You Dish Upon A Star', but still...the ending is nice, if a little sappy. However, the episode doesn't really add a dimension to Homer and Marge's marriage, as Homer has been uncaring towards his wife before. Nevertheless, the first act was pretty good, as it does add a new dimension (Apu and Manjula's marriage). The second act drifted a bit, but was still enjoyable enough to hold my interest. The third act sees us descend into Mike Scully territory again, but it isn't bad enough for me to consider awful, just bizarre. After much thought, I have decided to give this episode a B+. One of Season 10's best episodes (I know this is not saying that much, but still...).

    I think I'm With Cupid is the best season 10 episode, with Mom & Pop Art being its only real competition. (However, I've yet to see Lisa Gets an A, which I'm told is very good.)

    I must be the only one who liked the Elton John appearance - any episode with Apu calling Elton John a bitch is okay in my book. And I think the ending, with all of the women in Springfield deluding themselves into believing that the skywriting was meant for them, is cute without being too cute. (Plus, I'll always love that Wiggum's pet name for Sara is Pop n' Fresh.)

    It's very good until the last act. - 3/5

    Umm, this we don't know where this story is going, let's throw in Elton John. The only funny bits with Elton came courtesy of Apu: "Someone saved your life tonight...Oh, the bitch is back!"

    An enjoyable episode, but by comparison with every other Simpson episode, 3/5.

    Just saw it in full (yeah, when I posted above I'd only seen like the first ten minutes). It was actually pretty decent; I still stand by "Manjula means some kind of spaceship" being the highlight quote of the episode. Elton John's appearance was also fairly contained; I liked the fact that he was still in the episode after the main scene at the airport (unlike some other episodes of this time where the guest star basically says who they are before disappearing).

    B-

    It's a good episode, at least in the top 5 of the season. Even the silly third act works pretty well somehow. And it's animated really well for a season 10 episode. B

    3/5, an average episode
    Kids, let me tell you about another so-called ``wicked'' guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas. He didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was...
    I forget. But the point is... I forget that, too. Marge, you know what I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?
