Really great episode, with emotion reminiscent of the classic era
18 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What a great, great episode. I just....love it.

It is also very emotional. One of the most emotional episodes since Season 10's, "Bart the Mother" (although there were many in between that almost qualify.) How is it emotional? It starts off with Marge having no-one to ride her new bike with, so Bart offers to. They share a bond by having tea and biscuits at a little café. Then, when some bullies tease Bart for hanging out with his mum, he lashes out horribly at Marge and destroys their new relationship. He just did it so cruelly to Marge who was very, very innocent and sweet in this episode. It'd just be hard not to feel anything right about there. And of course, they make up at the end. I don't know why I loved it, but there's just something about Marge/Bart episodes that I love more than most things on the show.

As for humour, I don't remember any knee-slappers, but I do remember chuckling here and there. But when an episode is so great and full of emotion like this one here, it just doesn't matter at all.

I'd usually give this episode an 8.5/10, but considering there isn't that option to vote for, and considering how they've still managed to capture emotion after 17 seasons, this episode really does deserve the 9.
