We start off with a pointless film shown to Bart's class (It's so pointless even Mrs. Krabappel says so, come on Brian you could have at least have made the film somewhat relevant to what they were doing). Afterwards, Mrs. K asks for everyone's homework.
|Paper grades are too harmful to the environment. Steel grades that can't be recycled are much better.|
|Homer: I hate character consistency! I want to be the asshole of this episode|
|I sure do hope we don't go downhill the same way they did|
|Dance my puppets! Dance!|
|I forget, Bart. Am I supposed to know stuff or pretend to know stuff?|
|Indiana Bart and the Raiders of the Lost Subway|
|Marge: Wait there's more. P.S. This is a red herring|
2. Lisa never heard once about Bart's subway and how that caused the tremor
3. The note came with a map that only Bart had
The first time I watched it, I called BS on the letter because there are just way too many things included that could not possibly be there. Brian Kelly, you fail at mystery, you fail at Simpsons, and above all YOU JUST PLAIN FAIL! Marge and Homer decide that they need to stop Bart's plan and Homer shuts off the power to the train just before the school collapses (It then collapses just after the flag pole falls onto it). Homer and Marge punish Bart and the episode ends with my suspicions verified as Bart wrote the letter but Lisa will keep that secret (This ending is a little heartwarming but it's just attached to a bad episode).
Final Judgment: This episode sucks! Between crappy writing, poor plot and character derailment that even Uwe Boll
Final grade: 3.3/10 Brian Kelly sucks as a writer and he will probably still write one more episode before the series ends. May God have mercy on us all.
