Classic Simpsons!
11 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The eighth episode in the second Simpsons episode is a good one and it's why the Simpsons is an American classic. It has good themes in family values, but at the same time it's very funny. It's a very memorable episode and the ending is the best. I never laughed so hard in this series as I did in the last three minutes.

In this episode, "Bart the Daredevil," Bart is inspired by Lance Murdock, an Evel Knievel-like character. Going against the wishes of his family, Bart decides to show off his skills by planning on skateboarding across the Springfield Gorge.

Overall, a very funny episode. It does have a few lessons on family but it also has means to inspire. Don't do anything reckless, but always try something new. This episode has plenty of jokes and a big ending. I rate this episode 9/10.
