I don't think this season needed to end on yet another Lisa popularity quest.

Lady Gaga's guest spot was...there. Her eccentricities were certainly there, but there wasn't anything particularly funny done with them. I feel like it was more of a guest spot meant to tell us "Hey, Lady Gaga sure is QUIRKY!" instead of "Hey, Lady Gaga sure can be funny!" There were a few funny bits, like the flash mob gag, but overall, not a great way to end this season.

Bart: Oh good, she's playing.
Milhouse: Not so good. It's Lisa Roulette.
Kids: AaaaaAAAaaa...
Nelson: Don't let her get you!
Kearney: Her eyes shoot loser lasers! AAACK!


This season had some major low points, like the inane "D'oh-cial Network" and that complete waste of a 500th episode. But the joy in The Simpsons nowadays is more about finding the gems in the sea of mediocrity. Having said that, I still think "Them, Robot" is one of the best episodes of the last ten years. This wasn't a particularly strong season, but this show's still got its strong points and it's nice to see them come out every now and then.

I have no love for or interest in Lady Gaga but I thought the episode was pretty good. I thought Lady Gaga was probably the best celebrity guest voice utilized for an entire episode since Mel Gibson (who was awesome at the time when he wasn't insane and loathed). All the visual gags were pretty good too.

I thought the best episode of the season was the Neil Gaiman one where Homer and company co-wrote a young adult novel. There were others I liked, such as the one with Bart on the cruise.

Yeah, this was pretty decent. I agree with John about Gaga's guest turn; I was surprised at how impressive her voice work was. I guess I expected something more stilted (like most non-actor guest voices) and less professional-sounding.
