Complete and Utter Purely Beautiful HORRENDOUS CRAP!!!
8 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is great, but this episode is the worst thing on television. Bart may be a hellish douchebag, but even THIS is a new low. For god's sake, the process of hatred for Bart is composed of cruelty, hypocrisy, and a cringe-worthy climax of Bart's mental anguish being summarized as an attempted suicide jump from atop a water tower. Even then, they STILL hate him. In the end, this is an episode that if you ever see, I pity you. It is a terrible waste of 22 minutes in which every second is regrettable, so don't watch it. If you plan on doing so, you must apparently like sadistic torture.

Well, there's also a subplot, and it is terribly tedious and awful bullsh*t. Basically, Homer becomes a matteress salesman. Whoop-de-fricking do! Who gives a crap? Oh yeah: NOBODY!!!
