Pathetic, simply pathetic
28 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

Most season 20 episodes are awful, and this one is no exception. Long story short, Homer's negligence leads to Maggie being taken in by nuns, Lisa tries to get her back while Homer tries to fool Marge into thinking Maggie's still there, while Bart does the same for Lisa.

The plot is disgusting, Lisa, while trying to get Maggie back, decided that hunting for a lost jewel will somehow, magically lead her to Maggie for some reason. Next, to solve a clue, she enlists the aid of Milhouse, who has nothing, but then Lisa solves the riddle mere second later with no help. Not joking, unfortunately, it literally only takes her three seconds. No, wait, it gets worse. In order to fool Marge into thinking Lisa's still him, Bart dresses as Lisa to make Marge think that he's her. Now, the problem is, Marge is temporarily blind due to staring at the sun during an eclipse, so what was the point of the cross dressing? And then, Marge confuses Bart's cruddy saxophone playing for Lisa's jazz, despite the fact that it's supposed to be Homer who hates Lisa's regular music and confuses bad playing for good. Finally, and this is worst of all, after Maggie is pretty much proclaimed the second Christ by the nuns, Marge bursts in demanding Maggie back. "How did she know to come?", both Lisa and the viewers ask, well get ready, because the answer is...word's can't describe how awful Marge's answer is: "A mother knows!" Really? That's the best they could come up with? The writers were clearly just being lazy there, especially considering that Marge was fooled earlier by a fake hand puppet and a needlesly cross dressed Bart. All in all, it was a pretty bad episode, don't watch it. EVER.
