What the topical-environmental-issue-based episode is going on here?
First there’s Homer, who hoping to cut down his electric bill purchases a wind turbine. Long story short, at first there isn’t enough wind to produce power, but after a storm hits Springfield the Simpson family has more electricity than they know what to do with.
Sadly, however, the storm wreaks havoc on the city and Lisa finds a beached whale on the shore. I regret to report the cartoon whale does not make it and Lisa is forced to accept the whale’s death.
So how did the episode go over? A reviewer on FireFox.org writes:
“This is the most uneven episode of The Simpsons this critic has ever seen, and she’s been watching the show since its first episode.It starts out solidly, with a funny trailer for “Tic Tac Toe – The Movie”; everything leading up to and including the energy fair works well.But the plot’s only a lead-in point for the whale story, which is far more somber.”
