Fantastic Episode!
9 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fourth episode in the third season of the Simpsons and it's one of the best episodes this season. Not only it's funny, but it's cool to see how Bart gets involved in the mafia and this episode is very Goodfellas-esque. But this episode also spoofs our justice system and basically claims the American justice system is imperfect as shown in the court scenes of this episode.

In this episode, "Bart the Murderer," Bart decides to join the Mafia as a job and one day Bart is late for work because Principal Skinner made him stay after school. The mafia, led by Fat Tony decides to talk to Skinner and Skinner ends up missing. The mafia blamed the disappearance on Bart and now Bart is in very big trouble....

Overall, this is an excellent episode. I always like these kind of episodes that involves the mafia, so I knew I would like the episode. But this turns out to be one of the best episodes so far in the series. Great guest stars by Neil Patrick Harris, Joe Mantegna, and Phil Hartman helps as well. I rate this
