Another great episode.
10 June 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Season 21 has been delivering use great episodes,probably some of the best of the series (best ones of this season=Million Dollar Maybe and To Surveil With Love)and this episode "Postcards From The Wedge" was a great episode too.

Its about Bart trying to seek Marge and Homers attention but they both keep fighting over a way to punish him after getting in trouble for not doing his school project.

But then Milhouse shows Bart an old Subway train thats still working so Bart decides to driving over the school so he can get Marge and Homers attention once and for all.
