Slow, Different Episode,
9 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Lisa the Simpson is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and plenty of very funny moments. It's a very slow episode that is very dialogue based and dosen't rely a whole lot on story, but more so on characters, and the performances of the voice actors are very important here, thankfully they all did a great job. It's definitely a weaker episode in the ninth season, with very exciting episodes like the City of New York vs Homer Simpson and Trash of the Titans, this one dosen't deliver as much entertainment or high energy as they do. The scene towards the end in which we are introduced to several new Simpsons family members is outstanding, it's a ton of fun and the best few minutes of this episode, all of the once off characters are hilarious and I would have no problem with seeing them again some day. While it's definitely not as interesting as other parts of the ninth season, Lisa the Simpson is still an enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Lisa fears she is losing her intelligence when Grampa informs her on the family's history with school grades.
