Entertaining enough, but was so ludicrous that it was embarrassing.
29 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I found the fact that the plot of the episode revolved almost entirely around a dish-rag to be highly perturbing; running out of ideas are we? The historical settings were actually quite creative, a nice change from the usual settings. Sadly, this episode was a big flop and the gags were few and far between.

Normally with this show, they manage to balance a few plots together, such as the Treehouse Of Horror episodes and Trilogy of Error. However, this episode failed miserably at it's attempt to create a sub-plot. At first, i was interested in that Milhouse had finally stood up to Bart but my interest didn't last because it was weak and unoriginal.
