  • The Simpsons makes a comeback.


    Surprisingly good episode, came out of nowhere. The last episode was bad.Principal Skinnerchallenges superintendentGary Chalmersto take over the education ofBartafter one of his pranks leads to a school fundraiser debacle. Meanwhile, Chalmers takes an unconventional approach to teachingAmerican historywhich sparks a fascination of President Theodore Roosevelt. Encouraged by the educational renaissance of Bart, Chalmers takes Bart and his band of "Rough Riders" on an overnight excursion to Springfield Forest, however after a minor accident, the school administration fires Chalmers for taking the boys on an unauthorizedfield trip. Determined to get Chalmers' job back, Bart and the boys hold the school hostage until the administration reinstates Chalmers, and they stand up for the teacher who made a meaningful impact to them. Extremely interesting plot from The Simpsons considering they haven't done anything to speak of recently. Next week i will reviewThe Food Wife.
