Storyline

Marge becomes a spectacle during a PTA meeting for not having an e-mail address, and she decides to take a chance on using the Internet. Amazed and delighted by all the Internet has to offer, Marge joins a popular role-playing fantasy game called "Earthland Realms." To Marge's dismay, the game has her interacting with practically the whole town of Springfield, including Bart, who happens to be the game's most feared and destructive player. Meanwhile, Homer saves Lisa's soccer game from cancellation after he volunteers to take the place of a referee who recently quit. However, Homer's refereeing skills only exasperate Lisa, and her competitive streak gets the best of her. Written by Anonymous

I really liked this episode!! It's really rare that we get an episode with a great plot and a great sub-plot, but they managed to make one. Marge gets into the internet and begins playing an on-line game that Bart plays. When Marge get in to Bart's personal gaming life, Bart gets angry. Meanwhile, Homer and Lisa have troubles while Homer coaches here soccer team. The Marge-Bart plot was very imaginative and well written, and the Homer-Lisa plot was very funny. One of the many great episodes making up what's turning out to be a really spectacular season.

My rating: *** 1/2 out of ****.
