One of the best of the series
26 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, it seems there is only one other review for this ep, and I pretty much disagree with it completely. So here goes (my first review).

Season 10 was pretty much the peak of the show for me. Already there were a few episodes that presaged its slipping (D'oh-in In the Wind is one of my least favorites from seasons 4-10). But this one is not only one of my favorites of the Simpsons, but favorite episodes of anything.

The setup: Homer, the ultimate fair-weather fan of the Isotopes, only cares about the team when they make it to the championship (according to the DVD commentary, the same could be said for many modern-day Red Sox fans). In celebration, he and the barflies get smashed and wreck the school. The damage gets blamed on the kids, and Wiggim sets up a curfew. The kids set up a radio to broadcast the adults' secrets as revenge.

The jokes were hilarious. "Homer's Night Out" where he tries to recall what he got into the previous night, done as a silent film. The Children of the Damned-ish movie they see at the drive-in. The kids reacting to prime-time television, aka Bart about to smash the TV with a bowling ball. The secrets they reveal on the radio. The ending song, a great parody of "Kids" from Bye Bye Birdy. And the denouement. Truly a great ep.
