Good Episode
14 March 2018 | by Gerardrobertson61See all my reviews

This was a rather good episode and Topher Grace was a good choice as Donny. The episode allowed us to see Bart at his prankster best, and how he handled Donny as his competition, a bit like when Lisa had to deal with Allison in a Season 6 episode. It was good to see Skinner gets his revenge on Bart form a change.

The side story of Homer getting around in his hire car was also a funny addition. All in al, an enjoyable episode
