Worst Episode Ever
22 October 2018 | by jamnetworkSee all my reviews

Oh my God! What is happening to The Simpsons? This episode is 100% unwatchable, there are no funny moments at all! It starts with some stupid magic show and Marge getting drunk, then continues into a fish falling from a Russian satellite and damaging the car. This leads into Homer & Bart conning people, and then to a fake trial organized to teach them a lesson. Then, just as everything is about to be explained, Otto rushes in and says: "Surf's up!" and everyone rushes outside and starts surfing. Complete and utter garbage. This is definitely the Worst Episode Ever! Whatever you do, don't watch it, or you'll be sorry!
