Finding Your First True Love!
22 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twenty-fourth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and it is a really good one as it tackles the part of finding your first love during your pre-teen years. While it's romance, this doesn't get overly sappy so I'm happy for that. It's also funny thanks to the very great jokes including Homer becoming articulate.

In this episode, "Bart's Friend Falls in Love," a girl named Samantha moves into Bart's class and his best friend, Milhouse falls in love with her. Bart thinks that will end their friendship, so he tries to stop their relationship. Meanwhile, Homer wants to lose weight so he orders a program to help him, but instead he only broadens his vocabulary while still putting on the pounds.

Overall, this is a great episode exploring pre-teen love. However strong the romance plot was, I did think the subplot involving Homer was even funnier. It was nice to see what Homer would be like with even a slither of intelligence. I rate this episode 9/10.
