Great Episode!
1 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The tenth episode in the second season of the Simpsons is a great one. Somehow, it reminds me of all these courtroom dramas but of course this is all satirical. I liked this episode because it has some good characterization especially Mr. Burns. This episode shows us who the real Burns is. Also, the sleazy lawyer, voiced wonderfully by Phil Hartman, is a fresh new addition and pretty funny.

In this episode, "Bart Gets Hit by a Car," Bart is hit by Burn's car while skateboarding and ends up in the hospital. Refusing Burn's condolence pay of a hundred dollars, Homer decides to take Burns to court.

Overall, this is a great episode. There are some really funny moments but also some sad moments regarding a strained marriage between Homer and Marge. But one that's worth watching. I rate this episode 9/10.
