Two Mediocre Side Stories,
2 December 2013 | by FilmBuff1994See all my reviews

Black Eyed,Please is a decent Simpsons episode with an average story and side story that both just felt like side stories,they both seemed like good ideas but they didn't follow through with them all that well.Lisa having a substitute teacher that hates her definitely could have been so much more enjoyable and they could have giving a comedy star as big as Tina Fey some funny dialogue,also Ned punching Homer would have worked out better as a side story and could have been more enjoyable that way.The episode definitely has its moments,mainly anything Homer says in this episode is hilarious,but Black Eyed Please is certainly one of the weakest episodes of the twenty fourth season.

Flanders is riddled with guilt after punching Homer,and Lisa gets on the wrong side of her substitute teacher.
