Not so good
14 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode wasn't one of my favourites of the Simpsons, it just wasn't consistent.

The episode got off to a funny start, with Bart's troubles with th Gym teacher, but then it just stopped being funny. Groundskeeper Willie is one of my favourite characters in the show, and lets face it, it was never going to work turning him into a real gentleman.

IGN named this episode as the best of the 17th season, i'd have to disagree, as their was plenty of better episodes than this.

It's not an awful episode, but if you are not a fan of new Simpsons, then you will probably not enjoy it. It has some funny parts in, but nothing great.

6/10.
