  • Homer tells Bart and Lisa how he was in a barbershop quartet with Principal Skinner, Apu and Barney and about his 'five weeks at the top'.

    I liked this episode a lot, however, I didn't find it was as funny as most other Simpsons episodes. I think that the writers were probably concentrating so much on the allusion of the Beatles that they sort of forgot to incorporate the usual funny material, which is a shame because this was one of the best Simpsons storylines ever. Most of the funny stuff was at the beginning at the Springfield swap meet, especially when Homer didn't recognise all of those priceless items! I also liked when Lisa and Bart questioned Homer at the end, because it was funny and the show was poking fun at its own bad continuity. Well-writen with a clever storyline.
