The Book Job is a brilliant Simpsons episode with at storyline thats
funny and smart,with a great guest appearance from Neil Gaiman.I
enjoyed the shows reference to books like Harry Potter and Twilight and
the references to heist movies.
When Lisa discovers the truth about book publishing,she struggles to write her own book and prove the publishers wrong.Meanwhile,Homer and Bart are doing a much better job than Lisa ad decide to pull a heist on the publishers by making a very successful book,with the help of Principal Skinner,Patty,Professor Frink,Moe and guest star Neil Gaiman. -DILLON HARRIS
Couch gag: N/A There isn't one to speak of.
The episode: Lisa discovers one of her favorite authors is just a face for the back cover. Her books turn out to be written by scores of recently graduated lit majors who will do anything for money. Lisa vents to Homer about it, planting the idea in Homer's brain. He assembles a crack team, starting with Bart, to write the book with him.
Any time The Simpsons put together a group of Homer, Bart, Moe, Professor Frink, Selma, and Principal Skinner, you know you're in for a treat. That's precisely what this episode was. Neil Gaiman guest stars in this episode and does a very good job.
Favorite moment(s): Principal Skinner's original recruitment and then his pizza delivery decoy. Kansas City.
Sit down and watch this episode if you get a chance. It's cute but not too cute. The Italian Job/Ocean's Eleven spoof is a real charmer. This is an episode that ends really well, combining the comedy and sentimentality we've come to expect from The Simpsons.
Overall rating: 9/10 I highly recommend this episode. It's a fun one.
