  • This was a fairly average episode.

    In this episode. Bart is having problems in class since they got a test. When he is annoyed by the most intelligent person in his class - Martin Prince. He decides to switch the test with Martin's. In the psychologue office. The psychologist says that Bart is a genius and must be sent in a smart school. Homer is very proud of his son's accomplishement. Sends him there. Arriving, Bart has trouble fitting in with the "cool" kids. As he learns being smart isn't that easy.

    This episode, was a fairly average episode. Great plot idea: Loved the idea of Bart "being" a genius.

    Humor: Lacks it. It doesn't have much "laught out loud" scenes/jokes.

    In other words. This a watchable Simpsons episode, just not worth to rewatch it.
