Full of Hilarity,
21 June 2016 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Wild Barts Can't Be Broken is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a well written plot and plenty of funny moments. I found the curfew scenario to be a great set up for hilarity, as we see Bart, Lisa and friends go against the new system by hacking the radio, revealing secrets about their parents to all of Springfield, some of these secrets had me in stitches, such as Homer practicing medicine without a license. I did feel it was lacking in heart, with all the conflict between children and adults, we were hoping for resolution in the end, but it finishes as negatively as it began. The song was the highlight for me, catchy and upbeat as the children and adults sing about their annoyance for one another, it sums up the theme of the entire episode perfectly. Wild Bart Can't Be Broken is a very enjoyable Simpsons.

After an early curfew is put in place for the children of Springfield, they begin to rebel against it.
