Interesting Political Satire!
6 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the second episode of the third season of the Simpsons and it's a rather interesting episode. This is one of the more political-heavy satires by the Simpsons that outlines political corruption which is obviously prevalent in our government. But it's funny most of the time and based off the title, it reminds me of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

This episode, "Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington," has Lisa winning an essay contest that talked about the greatness of the United States and as a winner, she and her family travels to Washington D.C. But Lisa uncovers a scandal in which some senators were planning on taking bribes to demolish the Springfield forest.

Overall, this is a solid episode and one that should open your eyes to political corruption such as bribery and whatnot. But this is a funny episode as well and another solid entry in the storied Simpsons. I rate this episode 9/10.
