Both Lisa and Bart got a chance to grow as characters here as they both learned valuable lessons about what they actually stand for and how they can truly make an impact. Tonight's main activity is vandalism. Putting Saran Wrap on the urinals, not really that funny. Guest stars: Awkwafina as Carmen, Nicole Byer as Erica, and Chelsea Peretti. Like, how about instead when Bart finds the reboot funny but isn't willing to be open about it because again, Jimbo, Dolph, Kearney and Nelson were all there. Bossy Riot were mostly unsympathetic--we only got a brief hint of what they were against like that exaggerated History book cover or Krusty caving on pulling the reboot , but mostly they were just portrayed as being anti-men, which unfortunately only plays into many people's misconceptions of women's rights.
It would be nice to see Bart have a true role model for once in his life to at least help him believe in his own potential, and someone who actually cares about Bart and isn't just doing it for some ulterior motive - sort of like Bart's version of a Mr. But they take it to the very streets Lisa is afraid to bicycle. Just about all the protagonists except Bart unlikeable again, why skip immediately to publicly embarrassing Bart instead of, y'know, talking or trying to get through? To protect their favourite show, Bart and Lisa need to team up to stop the gang. And yeah, Bart ends up being used and abused by her and the other girls who lack distinct personalities or even names… great characters? Sideshow Bob's Prison Art made me chuckle since it sounds like something he do. I know I mentioned it sounding like Simpsons meets Sinfest but that was supposed to be a joke.
I also echo his sentiment with regards to this episode lacking nuance. That being said, it would have been nice if he did have a moment of clarity at the end he could demonstrate to Lisa and they have a heart-to-heart, that would have been nice. But the worst part by far is that they could have had, y'know, meaning or a genuinely feminist and positive message instead of this brainless plot. At least Lisa agreed with Bart. Even if it's pretty screwed up. Not since 'The Flintstones' in the '60s has a cartoon series drawn such a large adult audience, and, ay caramba, given us pop-culture expressions for the ages.
Censorship, alchoolism, poverty you name it. Searching for the name of the writer? It seemed like they were trying to say all those things, but it wound up being super convoluted. For the love of God, Simpsons team, go back and watch Lisa Vs. But Bart sees the reboot and laughs, in spite of himself. I am 100% all for a thoughtful story with a powerful message about feminism and equality, but I can't stand it when it's mishandled this poorly.
Lisa didn't even give Bart a chance. Except Bart still likes the old one a bit better overall but thinks his new friends would turn on him as soon as he admitted that. Grundy, Daria, Powerpuff Girls and Louise Belcher. Nothing really special has happened in the first four minutes. However, there were more than a few moments I laughed at, so I guess it's not a complete waste. All he cares about is spray painting the world and watching it drip aka some men just want to watch the world burn.
But sure, ya want some positives? Especially in something as tried and true as this cartoon couple. Or well, there's also one after Betty, but I don't know who it is. My hometown of Brockton's elementary schools used to also be K-6 or even 1-6, but now they are all K-5 save one, which became a K-8 school. After Bart's friends turn on him for laughing at the reboot, Bart joins a woke group of sixth-grade girls who commit crimes against patriarchy. He does it because the patriarchy is a weiner. Cast Episode complete credited cast:. Someone is going to hate the very idea of it before it even makes it to the screen, big, small or animated.
This season has consistently rewarded what might be universally accepted bad behavior. The sexiest names they called Bart were funny. That's precisely what they were doing. His parents getting horny off it, eww. Bossy Riot finally go too far, threatening the thing both Bart and Lisa love, classic Itchy and Scratch episodes.
First, the title is a subtle hint that the episode will be good. As far as Lisa is concerned I hope we get to see a more activist side of her from here on out. I'm also glad Lisa thought Bossy Riot was so cool. I'm glad Lisa realized the vat of nail polish was on wheels, and thus was able to kick it out of the way. King-Size Homer Lisa the Iconoclast 8. I would be happy to one day learn Bart had some line about not changing history of a show that turn out they cut last minute to not feel to hypocritical. This episode was underwhelming, to put it mildly.
Or establish the merch they were burning was stolen from the girls? Then he drops the bombshell, an all-female reboot of Itchy and Scratchy. When she catches Bart actually laughing at the cartoon, she exposes his hypocrisy, making him a outcast. Hearing her ramble over a minute about how irrationally upset she is is also tiresome to listen to. Sure it showed he was a hypocrite, but it used to take a lot more for her to do something so devious against him. In an attempt to seem more gender diverse, Itchy and Scratchy have been rebooted to both be female.
More laughs than the last couple episodes combined. While his parents reactions to this were a bit odd, and watching Milhouse turn on his best friend so easily was strange, it was nice to see Milhouse take the lead for a change. This is some next level shit and he respects accomplishment. That's not bad, but given the ambition and potential in the premise, this could've been a modern classic. That's where cooties come from.
