The Lonely Life of Edna Krabappel!
16 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the sixteenth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and I really liked it. It's very funny, especially towards the end, but it has some underlying themes of romance and loneliness. Plus, this is our first look at Edna Krabappel in the main role and we see how lonely and bitter she is due to the lack of any true love.

In this episode, "Bart the Lover," Edna Krapabbel punishes Bart with a week's worth of detention and as revenge, Bart decides to make up a lover for Edna in order to get her hopes up. Meanwhile, Homer starts a swear jar after Flanders complains that Homer curses too much.

Overall, this is a great episode and one that is nearly perfect for Valentine's Day. It's really funny, but the best part is when the Simpsons sit down to write a letter for Edna together. I rate this episode 9/10.
