  • Okay Episode.

    After a mishap at the school's fire asembly(caused by bart), Principal Skinner tells Homer and Marge that Bart has ADD. They put Bart on a drug called Focusyn, and Bart soon becomes very smart and focused in school.

    When everything is going great, Bart soon goes crazy and has a theory that a satellite from space is spying everyone. He soon goes on a rampage in a military tank, and shoots down the satellite, which turns out to be an MLB satellite, and Springfield finds out MLB is spying on everyone.

    This is an okay episode. It started out GREAT, with the fire asembly. I loved Ralph saying"at my house, we call fire uh-oh's". I also loved Homer all twitchy on the ADD medicine, but the third act was a little too crazy for me.

    Overall Grade:80%/B
