Just watched for the first time ever!
First act is very poor. Marge is way out of character and Homer is a right idiot towards Bart 2/5
Second act: A anouther meh act but probably the best overall. Some funny moments and a nice plot. 3/5
Third act: The idea of the whole thing being an act is stupid. Very unrealistic.
Overall: a weak episode and a fairly poor act by Homer and Bart. Marge was out of character. Overall a whacky silly boring episode. Though there were a few good jokes and some of the 2nd act was not bad.
2.5/5 (rounded down to a 2) C/C-
