I don’t usually blog about TV shows, but this Simpsons episode was so bad, there wasn’t even a point in the writers even trying. They should have just taken a week off and worked on a better show. The show started off on a funny note, although we’ve seen it before a few too many times. Bart was behaving badly and so Homer and Marge took him to therapy. This time they recommended having him play the drums. Above, they used this to create a really funny parody of the White Stripes video where the drums keep multiplying as they go on. However, things took a turn for the predictable and the episode went for a downturn when Bart ends up being picked up for a Jazz band and Lisa doesn’t. She gets jealous and, predictably, that is how we get the show back to the reset point. (meaning, as in every Simpsons episode, we have to get back to where we started so that the show doesn’t need to maintain continuity -except where it’s funny)
How Lisa does this is even more uncreative. She end up adopting every creature about to be killed. Then one of them bites Bart and he can’t play in a Jazz band. I felt as though I had wasted 30 minutes of my life.
Oh yeah, and as usual, they kept the animals in the attic and no one noticed!
