Excellent episode of The Simpsons
19 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

'The Day the Violence Died' is, in my opinion, an excellent episode of The Simpsons, and contains loads and loads of Itchy and Scratchy. Bart and Lisa find a bum on the street who claims to be the true creator of Itchy and Scratchy, and they help him gain ownership of the Itchy and Scratchy corporation. To see how it goes, you'll have to watch it yourself. This is a great episode of The Simpsons, and has laughs galore. 'The Day the Violence Died' is probably in my top 15 favorite episodes of The Simpsons, and if you like humor and a satirical take on how America is entertained by violence, then I'd recommend this episode to you.

Rating: TV-PG
