Pretty darn good!
11 May 2008 | by aaronkavo-1See all my reviews

All I can say is "Wow!". Every Simpsons fan knows that the Simpsons have been going downhill over the last few years but this episode may be the shows Saving Grace! The episode didn't use dumb jokes, well, at least not too many. Topher Grave was an interesting choice as a guest. He's not super famous but most people would know who your talking about if you say his name. Anyway, when I thought of him playing a school kid I thought to myself "Hmm.Okay.". But he did the Simpsons well. Now that's the A-story. As for the B-story, well, it's okay. I mean it's just that Homer has got a new car for rent and doesn't want to give it up. It doesn't fit in with the A-story but still it doesn't effect the A-story. Overall, this episode rocks!
