Wow, personal favorite, I don't care what people say!!
13 April 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I absolutely love this episode, it doesn't exploit Lisa in a bad way like people say, and we get to see a fully functional story and cast of characters lit up with great animation for the time being.

The plot launches introducing a new character "Alex Whitney" who completely steals the popularity left in Lisa by introducing hip and new style to the school, while Lisa tries to cope with these changes, Bart and Homer have joined the grease business to make money, with some hilarious consequences including a violent fight between grounds keeper Willy. Tensions flare when Lisa looses control over herself trying to find a date for a dance, when she doesn't, Principal Skinner assigns her to do the job of admissioning people into the dance. She finds out the news at the dance, that Alex's plans have gone totally wrong and everybody is repelling each other due to nervousness. The writers don't forget Homer and Bart, as they fall through the vent in the roof and come down to the dance floor followed by gallons of gooey grease. Lisa convinces Alex to live a little as a touching ending.

Overall, all the characters were in their pride, and all the jokes were top-notch. Well written by Jane O' Brien. That sums up my review.

I give this episode a 90% rating.
