  • Homer wants to be a better parent by helping Bart get better at school and helping Lisa get more popular

    Homer takes an overbearing approach to parenting Bart and Lisa with disastrous results. Meanwhile Marge takes a liking to the new sauna she discovers in the basement. Not to say this is my all-time favorite Season 20 episode because it honestly goes by quick everytime I watch this episode and there are slightly better Season 20 episodes than this but I would still consider this episode to be one of my favorites though. I loved the storyline of Homer trying to become a better parent by helping both Bart and Lisa. I laughed at the conversation between Homer and that mom when she was telling Homer about being a better parent and how you need to push your kids to get where they need to be in life or something like that. It was funny seeing how Homer helped Bart and Lisa and how it just turned for the worse. The subplot with Marge enjoying her sauna was funny to watch as well. I also found it funny how Homer actually did the project for Bart. Not much to really talk about here but just other than the fact that I really enjoyed this episode. I did feel like the very ending of the episode was a bit lazy and could've been a slightly better ending but I can let all that slide though since that's a nit-pick right there. I laughed at a lot of parts and good to another episode dealing with Homer trying to be a better parent. Overall, a perfect episode of "The Simpsons"... too bad this is one of those episodes where it just goes by quick though. 10/10
