    So after Bart cheats on an intelligence test he is sent to a gifted school for very smart children. I never saw this episode until I got the first season dvd. And I loved it. David Silverman's directing made the show able to go on, with out him there would be no Simpsons (or at least not as great as it is now). I loved the episode's plot, it was character revealing for Bart showing his bad side and showing how he acts. And his first catch phrase, "Eat My Shorts" that was hilarious. Great job crew, loved the episode. 10/10.
