    R&R Lisa the Simpson

    I can't remember ever hearing this episode mentioned but I love it, it's my favourite of both Season 9, when it was aired, and Season 8 when it was produced. It continued the tradition of great Lisa episodes with a solid mix of emotion and humour, and a funny little B-Story too.

    one of the best of the ninth season which is no surprise considering it was produced in season eight. A

    Wan't this the last episode produced in season 8, it show's through the bizzare B story, it's very funny, but it has no connection to the main story and it doesn't have any Simpsons connection.
    I kind of miss the fact that they don't seem to do such extensive stories with secondary characters anymore.
    and Yes the emotion is great, makes Lisa very emphiable and very funny, especially the Simpsons extended family.

    The final Oakley & Weinstein produced episode. I haven't seen it in a long time, but it was really good with a great subplot from what I remember. Too bad Ned Goldreyer didn't write more episodes, A- 4/5

    How did it muck it up? The Simpson gene is probably Grampa Simpson's ramblings, and Scully was never one for continuity

    Meh. Some things were nicely done, but I'm not very fond of the Simpson gene idea. Also I dislike the way Lisa is almost scared of his own brother and father and the portrait of the other members of the Simpson family was too exagerated and wacky. I liked the reuse of the Jazz Hole and some other details but it was sonly slightly better than average overall. 3'5/5

    5/5

    Best of Season 9, and possibly my favorite Lisa episode in the series.

    But I've always wondered why Herb wasn't affected by the gene...

    For this episode I give 8/10 [4/5], solid, with plenty of laughs and good characterisation. Even though it bears no releation to the main story, I really like the sub-plot of Apu's Freak-E-Mart.
    We live in a society of rules. Why do you think I took you to all those Police Academy movies? For fun? Well, I didn't hear anybody laughing! Did you?! Except at that guy who made sound effects. Brrruuummm!, zhoo-zhoo!, rrraaassspppp!, honk!, honk!, pkeeerrrrgghhh!, ahoo-hoo, he-he, hoo-hoo. Where was I? Oh yeah... Stay out of my booze!

    My personal seasons' rankings : 4 > 6 > 7 > 8 > 3 > 5 > 2 > 9 > 1 > 16 > 15 > 18 > 17 > 14 > 10 > 13 > 12 > 11..19&20?..can't be arsed

    5/5 episode, one of Lisa's best. I could relate to the storyline (a decade ago I was a smart little boy, now I'm a juvenile delinquent), and it had a lot of great lines, especially in the Freak-E-Mart subplot.
    Bart: "Please don't call our parents!"
    Chief: "I'm afraid I have to for hijinks like these. Hijinks - it's a funny word. Three dotted letters in a row."
    Eddie: "Is it hyphenated?"
    Chief: "It used to be, back in the good old days, you know. Of course, every generation hyphenates the way it wants to. Then there's *NSYNC! What the hell is that? Jump in any time there, Eddie, these are good topics."

    because continuity like that isn't important.

    On the point of the unrelated subplot I just thought maybe it does somewhat tie into the episode thematically. After all the episode contains a fair amount on 'dumbing down'. You could argue that people flocking to the Freak-E-Mart to see a man in a freezer, a tin with no label and a baseball cap with a rude slogan on, followed by the Nude-E-Mart is a good example of dumbing down, even though it doesn't directly interfere with the main story. Of course I may be devising a tenuous link here but it makes a bit of sense.

    One of the episodes that has grown on me ....mentally. Haven't seen it for ages so it should be good when I can get it on the season 9 box set. A+

    There is just something really amusing about that sub-plot, and I love the main plot with Lisa thinking she's becoming dumb.

    As for continuity, there's a theory that it skips a generation or my theory that it is like alcoholism where the potential is there but your not going to automatically become stupid

    Good Lisa episode. The frozen man was kind of pointless.

    Solid through and through. Nice explanation for Lisa's intelligence. I enjoyed grandpa telling stories about how he and frosticilicus were buddies.

    I think O&W explained it pretty well...with episodes like these, after you see them like 10 times there's just not much reason to watch anymore. I used to love it but now have almost no desire to see it again...I don't care about Lisa's conflict. The B-story is great though.

    I think that it is a great, episode, possibly one of the very best centered around Lisa. It really reinforces the opinions that most of us have about Oakley and Weinstein, as it is both funny and emotionally resonant. Something that I also admire about this episode is that it was planned to be the last episode of their era (as pointed out on BOTH of the commentaries for this episode). It is a nice bookend not only to the Oakley and Weinstein era, but to the classic era in general.
