Sweet but Serious Episode,
27 May 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Secret War of Lisa Simpson is a great Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline with plenty of really funny scenes.It is a really dramatic and at times depressing episode,we've seen episodes about Bart and Lisa's sibling rivalry before,but never quite as serious as this episode.While the start of the episode is really funny,once Bart and Lisa join the military school is when the episode gets serious,certainly the most serious episode of the eight season,but there kind of episodes don't occur on the Simpsons very often so it is nice when it they do make an episode like this.The episode is also a very sweet one towards the end.It may not be the funniest but the Secret War of Lisa Simpson is still a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

After Bart's antics have gone too far,Marge and Homer decide to send him to Military school to discipline him.After seeing the area,Lisa decides to join too as a challenge,a decision she soon regrets but won't give up on.
