A+ episode

'Lisa Gets an A' is a personal favorite, partly because it's a Lisa episode (in which she learns a very important lesson about cheating . . . kinda), and also because the Homer-doing-something-stupid storyline is hysterical. Pinchy the lobster is a great prop/side character, and the fact that Homer grows fond of his food offers plenty of humor.

It's got everything: comedy, Ralph, Gill, even a withering look at Springfield Elementary's decrepit state.

10/10
