Storyline

Mr. Burns is dying of hypohemia, and needs an immediate transfusion of double-O negative blood. Finding out that Bart has the right blood type, Homer volunteers him, confident that Burns will reward him richly. When all Burns sends is a thank-you card, an enraged Homer writes a hate-mail letter. Marge begs him not to mail it, but Bart does it the next morning. Written by crouchbk

Decent Way To Finish Second Season!
3 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twenty-second and final episode of the second season and it's a pretty good one. But like the first season, I feel like the finale could have been stronger. It has a good story and all, but I think it was undermined by the previous 3-4 episodes which were very strong. That being said, it's still rather funny and the battle between Homer and Mr. Burns never gets old.

In this episode, "Blood Feud," Burns is dying from hypothemia which is a rare blood disease and requires a blood type that no one at the power plant has. But when Homer finds out Bart has that rare blood type, he makes Bart donate some blood. But when they only receive a thank-you card for their effort, Homer feels a little bit unappreciated.

Overall, this is a solid episode but could have been a better finale. That being said, the second season on the whole makes a better progression. With better animation, better plot-lines, funnier jokes, and more timely satire, things can only get better. I rate this episode 8/10.
