  • Bart? A Genius? Wha-?

    8.5
    Bart cheats on an intelligence test {switching it off brainy Martin Prince} and is mistaken for a genius who is "bored of ordinary school." So he goes to a genius school where the other kids can tell he isn't smart and take advantage of him. He tries to tell Homer this. In the end he does and he is chased through the house by a very angry Homer. Things go back to normal.

    A pretty strong offering with a good plot. It had some funny moments and some really nice introduction to some more characters who weren't in the pilot.
