Mr. Burns gives his employees Google-glass type eyeglasses to spy on them and Homer loves the enhanced reality of his new gadget - until Marge tries them on and he finds out she's seeing a marriage counselor. Meanwhile Bart takes a stand against buying Nelson a Valentine's Day card, despite buying one for every other kid in class, and Nelson delivers him an ultimatum: find him the best Valentine's Day gift ever or be fed to the classroom electric pencil sharpener.

Great Episode that Dealt with a Serious Subject in a Funny Way,
3 June 2014 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Specs and the City is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline.The episode starts off really funny,as we see Homer getting use to his new Google Glass-like technology,which was a lot if fun,and then we the episode got a lit more serious after Homer finds out that Marge has been going to marriage counseling on her own.While they were dealing with a serious subject,the show still managed to be funny with being offensive towards this subject,and I love that about the Simpsons,they can still be hilarious without being offensive,if it was Family Guy or South Park it would have gone way overboard with offense.Specs and the City is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Mr Burns buys his employees high tech specs so he can spy on them,while Bart refuses to give Nelson his annual Valentines cards that every kid in school gives him.
