So we begin with Mrs. Krabappel's morning where then we see her at a red light with some high-schoolers make fun of her for singing an "old" song. (Two minutes in and already I look for drugs to calm me down. That's a bad sign people) In case anyone could tell that the Simpsons now takes place in 2009, the writers decide to remind us by having all the students have their cell phones out texting in class (I'm sorry, but considering that in my high school I would get detention just for having it out, I'm not buying this BS at all).
|As we all know, schools allow kids to use their cell phones in class whenever they want|
|Wow, not even 5 seconds in and already I hate him|
|14 days of not having a teacher's salary. I don't see a difference|
|Hey good idea, I could go for a nice drink now|
Final judgment: This episode is boring, annoying and above all stupid. While it's all right to have the occasional cultural relevant item in your plot, it's not a great idea to center a plot around an annoying teacher who would be laughed off from special ed students. And really Mr. Vaughn ranks in my top 5 WORST characters ever in Simpsons with just so many moments that make you want to hit something.
Final Grade: 2.3/10 a better title would have been The Simpsons get a 'Z'
