Meet The Be Sharps
25 January 2009 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

What a marvelous way to start a Season, Season 5, a really great Season, many many gems and this episode, Homer's Barbershop Quartet, is definitely one of them and a favourite of mine.

Meet The Be Sharps and not only us will meet Homer, Principal Skinner, Apu and Barney's barbershop quartet but also Bart and Lisa will discover that once their father had fame and fortune. Our story then Season 5 begins at the Springfield swap meet and certainly the Simpsons are there and you will really laugh, especially is extremely hilarious when Homer finds the most valuable comic book (Action Comics 1), the United States Declaration of Independence, Inverted Jenny postage stamps and a Stradivarius violin, each thing cost 5¢! You know Homer and I wrote that is extremely hilarious, you know. Anyway, there Bart and Lisa find an album and their father is on the cover so we go to 1985 and we meet The Be Sharps. Is all really great, from the story of an original member of the quartet known as Chief Wiggum (he was too Village People!) to the fall of The Be Sharps (hilarious the song "Number 8"). John Lennon said "we're more popular than Jesus" but The Be Sharps entitled an album "Bigger than Jesus"! Yes many great references to The Beatles, better is all Beatles! We have George Harrison and his moments are hilarious.

Terrific episode, brilliant way to avoid all the possible questions, nice music, you have to see the rise, fall and reunion of The Be Sharps! 9.5 out of 10.
