Probably the best way to lower my expectations is to hype up appearance by "Glee" cast members while NOT telling me that Flight of the Conchords are all over the episode, so you can probably imagine that after it was all done, I was pleasantly surprised by one of the stronger season openers for "The Simpsons" ...especially given that this was a "Lisa episode."
It was an excellent episode and really makes the loyal viewer crave for more. I will be very pissed when this season ends. I love how Dexter used the same reason Dokes didn't like him against Dokes. Safe to say, Dokes is a goner.
