Another early strong episode
21 February 2020 | by studioATSee all my reviews

There's a lot of fun to be had watching these early episodes and seeing how the show went from this to what it ultimately became.

Martin as Bart's enemy, Homer not being dim - how times change!

This episode is smart, it's funny, and it's heartfelt- what more could you want?
