Great Mix of Humour and Conflict,
27 June 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The War of Art is a great Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and a ton of very funny scenes.I enjoyed the conflict in this episode as we see the Simpsons and the Van Houten's battle over who deserves a valuable painting,and I also really liked seeing the rest of the town getting involved in the situation.I always like episodes when Kirk Van Houten plays an important part,I think he's a really funny and underrated Simpsons character,many times his stupidity has me in stitches and this episode was no exception.The War of Art is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Homer and Marge have a dilemma on their hands when they stumble upon a valuable piece of artwork at the van Houten's yard sale.
