    Rate / Review KOTH: "No Bobby Left Behind"

    Bobby is classed as low achievement student in order to bring up the schools average.
    ---

    Not bad. A little better than last week's.

    Good commentary on how children who are a little slower automatically get labeled as disabled/ADD, etc.. Kinda the same story from the 2nd season episode: "Peggys Turtle Song" (Bobby eats sugar, gets put on ritalin). Along with the retardedness of No Child Left Behind.

    Nothing brilliant to see here..but worth watching for KOTH fans.
    "Socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the object worship of the state. It will prescribe for every one where they are to work, what they are to work at, where they may go and what they may say. Socialism is an attack on the right to breathe freely. No socialist system can be established without a political police. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance."

    Pretty good. I thought last week's episode was a little better, mainly because the solution to this one was simpler and more predictable. But it had some good satire and fun lines...and look, a music montage that actually adds to the episode (take note, Al)! I'll give it a B-/B. The only night this season so far where I thought Simpsons was a little stronger.

    I liked it more than last week's, but I have a tendency to like Bobby/school episodes more, anyway. Once again a very solid message from KotH - as usual; this show has been doing the best satire for Animation Domination for a long time - and there were some amusing enough moments (mostly from Peggy), but not too many, really. The show's strength really has turned to the points it tries to get across, with some good character stuff.

    Watched it again..
    I think Peggy is so under-utlized right now it's getting rediculous. This would have been a great episode for her to mention he substitute teaching career..Even just a comment like "Well, the kids had no problem passing tests when I was subsitute teacher!" Maybe she could have tried to come back as a teacher temporarily.

    Principal Moss has tunred into more of a simple, incompetent idiot than anything else. He was never really memorable, but this was a good opportunity to change that/add some depth.

    The ride operator sounded, and looked, way too much like Dale (which is a problem when Dale is in the scene). They were probaly recording and realised they didn't have anyone to do that voice and Hardwick stepped in (just a guess, and an insight to the lack of attention to quality).

    Just not a lot of life in the characters. Other than that, I think the executive producers are good at picking general story ideas..The characters and humor are simply an after thought.

    Thats what I thought after last seasons early episodes revolving around Bobby at school..Fairly lame. I think this was definitely better though..
    But in general, Im not a huge fan either.

    Sorta predictable, though decent satire (not great, could've been more pronounced), but not as funny as last week's.

    3/5

    I also liked last week's better, it just seems like it's been done already, Bobby has school problems that Hank disapproves of

    I really enjoyed watching that episode. And this is coming from a person who doesn't normally watch KOTH.
