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


With its focus on Bart's longing for a little brother, "O Brother, Where Bart Thou?" was a fun and entertaining outing for The Simpsons. Packed with guest voices, the episode did well by sticking to one main story instead of adding a weaker "B" storyline to fill out the half hour. Though Bart may never get his younger brother, we at least got a quality episode after a couple less than impressive installments.


Things began with Springfield getting hit by a snowstorm, causing the schools to shut down and giving Bart a snow day. Comically, the weather prevented Bart from ever getting outside, and once stuck in the house, a power outage prevented Bart from enjoying his videogames and DVDs. Bart's attempt to watch "Itchy and Scratchy" using the electricity he could generate from rubbing a balloon against his hair was a highlight of his struggle to find something to do. Meanwhile, Lisa and Maggie were playing together and enjoying their sisterly bond. Bart tried to play with his sisters, but was put off by their dress-up game. Bart tried to cover for having no one to play with by insisting he was "a bad ass loner like Wolverine, who leaves whenever people beg him to stay."
