Way back when, when the writers, producers, directors were working on this episode, it showed they can do an episode in the past really well. But, now, not so well. I stil like the episodes nowadays, alot.
So, the jokes in this were great. Just the plot of Lisa getting her saxophone was great and interesting, and I've watched this episode about 3, maybe 4, or maybe even 5 times!
So, this episode, watch it! It's pretty good, and it should be the higher rated episodes on tv.com. Seriously, if you havent watched this ep yet, watch it, and you won't regret it.
But, if you are a first-time viewer of the Simpsons, try to watch an episode from the 5 or 6 season.
10 out of 10, but it's a low 10.
