Great End to a Great Season,
26 August 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Yellow Badge of Cowardge is a great Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes.The episode deals with a subject that we have seen on the show previously,Bart and Milhouses friendship,but this is probably the most serious situation they have ever been in on the show,it was enjoyable to see them in this ruff drama with each other and I thought it was a fitting and interesting ending to the twenty fifth season,it was still a very funny episode as well of course.I also really enjoyed Homers side story,it was surprisingly sweet and was a lighter side to this episode.The Yellow Badge of Cowardge is a great Simpsons episode and a very pleasing ending to this season.

Their friendship is in trouble when Bart betrays Milhouse,meanwhile, Homer takes a trip down memory lane.
