Quotes

Homer: Frosty Krusty Flakes are what got him where he is today. It could be one of these chemicals here that makes him so smart. Lisa, maybe you should try some of these.
Marge: Homer!
Homer: I'm just saying, why not have two geniuses in the family? Sort of a spare in case Bart's brain blows up.

Bart The Genius, The 2nd Best Episode of season 1
27 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bart the Genius is the 2nd best episode of season 1 because it took all the greatness of the 1st episode and improved it.

This episode helps to develop Bart as a character as well as a great father and son between homer and Bart and balanced the main plot with the father and son B story.This has a excellent premise and is executed is a beautiful way with a funny ending.

The plot begins with a IQ test in witch Bart cheats and has a IQ of 216 and is he is moved to a smarter school and this is were the B story comes into effect at a opera where bat and homer make fun of everything that comes into mind.

The Third Act is the best Act in this episode where Bart admits to Homer he is not a genius the music is problay the best part of it then it gets to the funny side where Homer chases Bart and Homer keeps banging on the door of Barts room.

My Final Rating:

98%
