  • Bart switches test's with Martin Prince, and gets an IQ of 216. Bart Gets sent to gifted school, but struggles deeply. He owns up to Homer, but Homer gets mad and chases Bart. Lisa says the line to marge as they observe "I think Bart's stupid again."

    The second episode of The Simpsons, I think it was another classic. This Episodes alot of new characters, and shows the true coulours of some. Bart isn't the smartest, Martin is. Homer seems to be angry in earlier episodes, as he shows alot of rage towards Bart in this one. This episode wasn't the best, but it did deliver. It was enjoyable to watch, slightly more funny than the first one, but maybe the story wasn't as enjoyable. Then again, I'm quite happy watching this one at home, This was Jon vittis favourite episode he wrote from an interview in 1991.
