    OK, Homer tries to become a "helicopter" parent, meaning he helps Bart and Lisa with projects, Bart with homework and Lisa with becoming popular. It works for a while but at the end of the episode, Bart and Lisa just want to go back to the way they used to be. Homer thinks he has failed as a parent, but he learns from Marge he hasn't.

    OK, bad episode I thought. Homer acted really dumb in some parts, even for him. I absolutely loathed that part at the beginning when he tries to breathe fire on Bart. Just seemed way too unrealistic. Overall grade- D+/C-
