Better never than someday for this show.
It can't be as bad as last episode, can it?
Welp, three hours from now I'll find out.
It's using a dead and smelly plotline, but hey, I dare to be optimistic.
PABF06 - "The Daughter Also Rises" (episode 499, or is it really 500?)
Written by Rob LaZebnik.
Directed by Chuck Sheetz.
Lisa falls in love with Nick (Michael Cera), an intellectual romantic, and starts a secret romance with him. Meanwhile, Bart and Milhouse team up with the gang from MythCrackers (Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage) to debunk some urban schoolyard legends.
Couch gag - Moe is set to congratulate the show on its 500th episode, only for Lisa to announce that this is episode 499.
Good episode. Weak couch gag. The best PABF episode so far. The best episode that aired in 2012.

That was one of the best of this season! Loved it. Plot was a little broken and rushed during the last act, but that's normal for modern Simpsons. Jokes hit most of the time, and it had a sweet ending. I give it a 5 for modern Simpsons.

"I don't normally approve of out-breeding" had me in stitches. Funniest line all night.
Other than that, it wasn't as bad as the last episode, but it wasn't that great either.
Bake 'em away toys!
Some things I liked: The billboard gag "Rainier Wolfcastle's Valentine's Day Kick-Assacre", the couch gag was pretty funny too. The montage of Homer and Bart doing stuff together had some good little jokes. The "Doritos Nutrition Fair" was a pretty funny name. Grandpa's "drunken walrus" line. Flanders' "Babble on/Babylon" line. The Bart/Milhouse subplot was pretty solid. Overall I'd give this episode something like a 3.5/5
This wasn't great but it was a big step up from recent PABF episodes.
For once, the 4-act structure was used really well. I also really enjoyed the subplot.
My quibbles are that Michael Cera was largely wasted and some jokes went a little too long (like the peripheral vision gag and the twins/triplets thing). irvine_11 also hit the nail on the head of the main plot lacking an emotional core. Most of the directions it took felt contrived; Lisa had zero chemistry with ... did Cera's character even have a name?
I rather enjoyed the Running of the Bullies gag as well in addition to Nelson's "candy as cigarettes/cigars" bit.
Gets a solid 3 out of 5.
I have a huge rocket
I didn't really feel this episode. We had potential for a cute and original love story, but it moved around so fast, we barely had time to feel anything for the characters. At least there were some good jokes, but they were all cancelled out by crappy ones. I actually liked the subplot much better. C+
P.s. I'm 3 minutes into Napoleon Dynamite and I'm already getting better vibes.
Times are gone for honest men
Initial thoughts: Please don't let this have any horrible Michael Cera movie references....
Chalkboard: "I will not replace a candy heart with a frog's heart"
At least it's not a recycled couch gag, and it was sorta funny. I like the fact that Lisa had to check a reference book to make sure Moe was wrong.
Worst Itchy and Scratchy I've ever seen, maybe a time filler?
TV on a gas pump. Okay, that made me laugh.
Adam's "Blow it Up" Dance
Homer still eats flowers.
Homer gloating to the guy in the car about his Valentine's day.
Loved the whole Bart and Homer montage.
Frink finally got his date with Miss Wyoming.
Pizza Box Chef: "Now that's-a-spicy meat cute." (That was terrible. EDIT: I can't believe I forgot his name is Luigi, but I remembered he came from a pizza box.)
(So far, so good, aside from a few bad jokes...)
Wow. The A and B plots are working well.
Otto's continuing upset at Springfield's misleading store signs.
The Edith Piaf song is nice.
"The Doritos Nutrition Fair"
(Could it be true? Am I enjoying a PABF episode?)
Grandpa's story was well animated, had a nice joke, and added something to the story? What's going on here!?!?!
(Milhouse mentions American Girl Dolls. Second time they've been mentioned this season, if I remember correctly. EDIT: Nope. Lenny is addicted to "American Princess" dolls in The D'ohcial Network.)
Maury translation: "Hello, I'm Maury Povich. One of these seven men is the father of this crack baby."
(I'm actually watching it because I'm into the episode.)
Looks like they'
