A Fun Episode that Makes Great Use of its Guest Stars,
19 December 2013 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

The Fabulous Faker Boy is a great Simpsons episode with two very enjoyable story lines with a lot of very funny scenes and four great guest appearances.I really appreciated the guest appearances from Jane Krakowski and Bill Hader ,a much prefer when they get the guest stars to play different characters and they got these two to put one very impressive accents.I also enjoyed Justin Bieber's cameo,when I first heard he was going to be on the show I wasn't excited for it, but his scene was short and sweet and one of the funniest parts of the episode.But my favourite guest appearance on this episode is without a doubt Patrick Stewart,I love his powerful voice and his character was very funny,as he inspires Homer to embrace being bald.But the best part of the episode was without a doubt the opening couch gag,made by the Robot Chicken crew,I really enjoy that show and love the unique action figure animation,and seeing Seth Greens clever show out together with the Simpsons was thoroughly enjoyable.The Fabulous Faker Boy is a very good Simpsons episode with some very memorable scenes.

Marge wants Bart to try out piano lessons and he keeps it up because if his attraction to the teacher,while she teaches his teachers dad how to drive.Meanwhile,Homer gets depressed and try's to hide from Marge that he has gone completely bald.
