Trivia

The scene where Bart writes his confession was done as one long take to balance the shorter scenes elsewhere in the episode. It was animated in the United States by Dan Haskett. See more »

In the Scrabble game at the beginning, Marge plays HI and says that this scores two points. In fact, H is a four-point tile, so HI would score at least five points. See more »

Not a Fluke!
11 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode, "Bart the Genius" proves that the first episode was no fluke. It has a heart and it explores the father-son relationship that Homer and Bart sometimes has. This episode is good at character development as we learn what kind of person Bart is. Also, the story is a little better even though it's a bit less funny and a little of the dramatic side.

This episode is mainly about Bart. Bart cheated on his I.Q test and the school psychiatrist sends Bart to a school for gifted children. However, Bart doesn't fit in like he thought he would.

Overall, this is a great second episode. What lacks in comedy makes up for it with sweet, gentle drama. This is a family really worth watching. I rate this episode 9/10.
