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."
Few things that popped into my head after watching this episode: 1. Just like what has already been mentioned here, "Season One" was apparently all for nothing. 2. So did there used to be some sort of relationship with Miles and Rachel?
