It's not one of my favorites, but it's a fun episode nonetheless. Homer falling down the gorge is damn ICONIC. :silly:
"Alright, alright, if it will make you happy, I'll overthrow society."
Funny episode. The gorge scene is one of my favorite moments.
Itchy & Scratchy & Marge
I don't really care for this episode all that much. Yeah, the characterization is good and there's some decent gags, but I'm not a huge Marge fan and whenever she goes on one of her rants I get bored with the episode. There's worse episodes out there, but it wouldn't be the end of the world if I never saw this one again.
It's a typical average episode imo.
Solid story with some gags, but never something special or really hilarious.
This is one of my favorite Marge-centric episodes, another of season 2's brilliant contributions to the show. It was great to see people stand up against the violence in Itchy and Scratchy, and the whole plot was handled primarily realistically and entertainingly. Marge's characterization was spot-on, as were the characterizations of every other character. Roger Meyers Jr. is always a funny and interesting character, the satire of this episode was done impeccably, the visual sequence of the children playing in a world free from television was beautiful, the ending was poignant and definitive of classic Simpsons...this episode was pretty perfect. A+

A good episode with a few gags but like "Bart the Daredevil" I can think of a lot of better episodes.
Kids, let me tell you about another so-called ``wicked'' guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas. He didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was...
I forget. But the point is... I forget that, too. Marge, you know what I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?

Ralph: I Won! I Won!
Principal Skinner: No Ralph this means you're failing English
Ralph: Me fail English? That's unpossible.
A great satire episode and one of the more humours of season 2, It is probably my favourite Itchy and Scratchy episode.
"I motion to be disbarred, on the count of bringing that evidence against my own clients."
"...you liked Rashōmon."
"That's not how I remember it."
I love this episode. How did it get three C's in a row? :-O
I think the strongest point of this episode is it's satire. It's very well-done and entertaining, and it's done even-handedly. The episode shows the pros and cons of censorship, like the great sequence of the kids discovering that, gasp, they can go play outside (!!!). And also, the toned-down version of Itchy and Scratchy is hilarious.
It's one of the season's most memorable episodes. The spot on satire and great direction make it the best Itchy and Scratchy themed episode BY FAR.
Bart Gets Hit by a Car
I like this episode. The characterization is pretty good. Homer has a shot at getting tons of money, gets greedy, Marge intervenes, and they get nothing. Burns is evil as he should be. I haven't seen this in a while so I don't have much else to say.
Really good episode, I've always found this episode to be underrated.
Great episode. Firstly the characterizations were spot on and it marks the first appearence of Lional Hutz and is one of his best episodes in fact there isn't much of Bart in the episode it is more Homer,Lional,Marge and Burns which works really well with the different personalities. Homer and Hutz's interaction is really good and they seem buddy like. Lisa and Marge are great too showing concern and Burns is in perfect character. A
Yeah I really loved this episode, it featured one of Lionel Hutz's first appearances. The show was just starting to take shape at that stage as well. Season 2 was a great season and this was one of the better episodes in a season where the show established itself as one of the better things on TV. This episode hasn't aged a bit at all either, people could still watch it today and enjoy it for what it is. B+
The resolution isn't great and it relies heavily on the sap factor. But the rest of the episode is pretty funny and enjoyable, plus it marks the first appearance of the great Lionel Hutz.
Nothing particularly noteworthy aside from Hutz, but it has it's moments (good and bad).
The Hutz moments are great, and the whole episode itself, apart from the sappy ending, is really good. However, the sappy end takes the episode down for me.

Great episode almost perfect and one of the most emotional episodes of all time.Homer is great in this episode and if you watch this then a season 18 episode there is an obvious difference between Homer in one and the other.The things on Homer's list are great and how he goes about them are funny.A serious greatest episode of all time contender. A+
Essential episode. Simply perfect jokes, added with spectacular emotion and great characterisation. A+ - the first perfect episode.
A rather forgettable and at times forced episode, with a few nice moments but nothing too spectacular. B-
Blargghhh Forced manipulative emotion with no real insight and it's only kinda funny. C+
Really surpised of this grade, but I don't want to bore anybody why.Originally Posted by TheForbiddenDonut
Perhaps emotionally manipulative, but it's one of the funnier Season 2 episodes, IMO. And plus, it's generally entertaining, so I would give it a:
Incredibly overrated episode. Barely watchable manipulative dribble.
don't know, never really liked this episode too much.
Story is ok even when Bart is not one of my favorite characters.
I wish there would be more funny moments. Miss that the most.
