The Simpsons Review: "O Brother, Where Bart Thou?"

by at . Comments

On this week's episode of The Simpsons, a power failure during a snow storm convinced Bart he wanted a baby brother.  Trust us, it made sense during the context of the episode. 

You can catch up on the events in our "O Brother, Where Bart Thou?" recap, including why Peyton, Eli and Cooper Manning all guest starred.

Overall, the episode was fairly entertaining with the plot and story line advancing quickly in Simpsons fashion.  Our only real complaint was the brother dream sequence dragged on a little too long without enough laughs.

Some fun notes from the episode:

  • Sideshow Bob and his brother were back during the dream sequence!  Even without dialogue we were thrilled to just see Bob, one of our favorite characters.
  • Homer's only advice to Bart about his body, "point and shoot" later saved his life.
  • Barney was back as The Plow King!  Might we see a return of Mr. Plow would day?

Now for some of our favorite Simpsons quotes from the episode:

Marge: A branch must have knocked out the power lines.
Bart: That's fine, I'll see what's on TV.
Marge: That runs on electricity, also.
Bart: Alright, I'll watch a DVD, there's no way that runs on electricity.... Really, does Obama know about this? | permalink
Homer: Girls are easy. Girls love daddy. Girls make birthday cards with glitter on them. Girls can marry a hockey player and get me free tickets to hockey games. Girls don't steal my lines. And girls never ask me how their body works because i have no idea.
Bart: You never told me how my body works.
Homer: Point and shoot. | permalink
Jimbo: No matter how dead their relationship seems, all parents eventually commit the heinous acting of love.
Kearney: Mine do it once a year on the magical day when the prison and the insane asylum have their annual mixer. | permalink
Homer: See, Lisa, looks like tomorrow I'll be shoveling ten feet of global warming.
Lisa: Global warming can cause weather at both extremes, hot and cold.
Homer: I see, so you're saying warming makes it colder. Well aren't you the queen of crazy land. Everything the's opposite of everything. | permalink
