Bart Falls in Love!
4 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the eighth episode of the Simpsons and it's a very good episode exploring the themes of love and puberty. It's incredibly funny as the jokes are on top of their game. I also like the fact that we get to meet the other neighbors of the Simpsons, not just the Flanders. This episode also receives the benefit of two prank calls to Moe, which are always the best.

In this episode, "New Kid on the Block," The Homers receive new neighbors in the form of a divorced Ruth and her teenage daughter, Laura. When Bart sees Laura for the first time, he instantly develops a crush on her. But he gets heart-broken when he finds out Jimbo is her boyfriend. Meanwhile, after being kicked out of an all-you-can-eat buffet, Homer decides to sue the buffet.

Overall, this a very solid episode and it's a better episode than the previous one, as it has a better story to tell. I like the fact Bart is madly in love and I also like how Homer is made out to be some sort of circus attraction because of his appetite. I rate this episode 9/10.
