The episode begins (After a 1:30 opening and a 30 second Itchy and Scratchy cartoon with no true humor. You know what? The itchy and Scratchy cartoon was more Halloween-related then their Halloween special. That is sad) with Lisa showing Bart her science project and Bart is unimpressed (As am I, Lisa should be recording how smart hamsters are compared to humans). After a horrible joke from Bart (Words escape me for them ACTUALLY having him make that model) we see Bart working on a cootie shot when Milhouse comes in with a bestiality joke about him kissing his dog (...WHU?!) But Bart scraps the project when Lisa says it's basically like what he did last year (You know, considering just how uninspiring Lisa's project is, she has no room to talk). Bart then sees Martin hanging from a tree and shoots him down, Martin thanks him for saving him and Bart asks Martin for help on his science fair project (Okay, so that makes it two ideas from previous episodes. You know I'm sick and tired of people trying to defend the show stating "But it's been on for 23 years, of course you'll run out of ideas" If you can't think of anything original, then don't pretend like you can). After a pointless, unfunny dream sequence from Martin (Gotta hit that 21:30 mark SOMEHOW) Martin agrees and they pass by Milhouse kissing his dog... WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE WRITERS?! THIS ISN'T FUNNY!!!
|Basically the same scene, but one tries way too hard while the other is funny. Which one is which?|
|Oh hai random beach ball... wait what?|
|Look Lisa, you lost to Bart's flying hamster fair and square, no need to be butthurt about it|
|It's miraculous just how much a joke can be so much different |
based on the QUALITY of effort put in
|So we're the bad guys apparently... Wait what do we do?|
|I HATE HUMAN EMOTION! Never make me have an emotion again!|
|You know, I may have learned to respect you...|
Final Verdict: Was there an episode that took place or not? Every time I lower my standards for this show, it just seems that they limbo under that bar every single time. This was terrible and forgettable, the writing was awful, the plots? What plots? They were basically non-existent or were way too underdeveloped and hampered by all the padding and the jokes were just awful. Thank God within a week, nobody will ever speak of this again.
Final Grade: 1.4/10 At this rate, I do believe this season will surpass season 20 in awfulness, only to be leap-frogged by season 24 and then season 25
