  • Bart, after seeing an exagerated recruiting film at school, enlists in the Army. Homer goes to the recruiting office and gets Bart out of his enlistment, but in turn enlists himself.


    This episode's portratyal of the Army recruiters and how they lie and exagerate to get people to enlist is definitely the highlight of this episode which is why I am giving it a high rating. Having been approached by military recruiters myself, I can say the portrayal is near perfect. There is terrific dialouge throughout this episode which another contributing factor to the rating I have given. In looking at Kiefer Sutherland's character it obvious that the producers of the episode have seen Full Metal Jacket a few times. Definitely one of the funnier episodes of this season.
