Storyline

Bart disappoints Marge yet again by his appalling history grades and the school psychiatrist reckons that unless he shapes up, he must sit the fourth grade again next year. But if he can successfully pass the history paper one last time he will be clear. Since Martin refuses to help, Bart prays for a miracle - which comes in the form of a snow storm which closes the school and gives him extra revision time. Written by don @ minifie-1

A Funny Beginning!
22 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Simpsons are back for a second season and what a way to kick it off. This first episode features much better animation and boasts a pretty good story to go along with. While not reaching the perfect animation of latter seasons, I like the animation is crisp and clear. I liked the story and I liked how this episode pushes across a good message based around education.

This episode, "Bart Gets an F," is about how Bart repeatedly receives failing grades and is in danger of being held back in the fourth grade, so Bart promises to do well on his history exam and he needs all the luck he can get......including a blizzard?

Overall, this is a very promising start to what hopefully turns out to be a great second season. It's funny, written well, and has all the Simpsons characters we are familiar with. I rate this episode 9/10.
