This episode is a model example of it the modern badness of The Simpsons.
5 February 2016 | by (Pori, Finland) – See all my reviews

Lisa goes Gaga is considered the worst Simpson's episode of all time. IMDb says so, reviewers say so, everywhere people say so. Now I decided to check if it's so bad, because my memory was vague.

Lisa wins a prize at school of the most unpopular and is just a very sad the whole time. Well, Lady Gaga has some kind of power, which he knows when Lisa is sad. And then we follow around when this over-positive, grandiloquent pop star spreads "goodness" everywhere. Sigh.

Like all the followers of the Simpsons, who have some kind of appreciation of the ability, to know that the Simpsons have gone quite unrealistic at present. This episode is a model example of it. I have to admit I didn't hated this episode quite 100%. I liked the scene where Lisa rages at Gaga, which felt quite good. Gaga herself was okay visitor, but the episode is not good. This also just has just a bunch of bad jokes candied with ultra-positive fairy floss. And at the end Lisa thanks Gaga, because he vented his anger on him, and is able to feel good about herself and sing repetitive pop songs again. Double-Sigh.

I'm not sure if this is a bad episode, but it is one of the worst. But perhaps the all-time worst is A Totally Fun thing Bart will never do again.
