The Simpsons 2/13/2005 "Pranksta Rap"

I'm surprised no one has wanted to talk about this episode in the 5 days since it has aired.

I thought it was really good! I laughed a lot throughout and the story wasn't as dumb as some of the recent episodes have been. The animation was awesome too - Like they got a new version of their computer software or something.

It was also great that they brought back some characters that havent been on in a while.

It was interesting how all the previews and episode descriptions just mentioned the Bart rapping angle, which was only a small portion of the show. Good to see Wiggum get the focus for a change

I thought that the episode overall was pretty clever, although the idea (and execution) of Bart rapping was cringe-worthy.

I loved Milhouse's scene, though, as he throws the Frisbee around by himself:

"I miss Bart. He used to watch me when I did this."

This was an above-average episode, although it was somewhat reminiscent of Bart falling down the well.

I liked it as well, but pretty much every new episode is reminiscent of a previous Simpsons episode at this point.

I love hearing Rap in the Simpsons - especially intentionally lame rape - like this episode had Marge & Homer doing a tag team rap or like when bart's school has assemblies and the performers do some lame rap (eg "crosswalk"). Break it down!

Yes, paired with Homer and Burns' son (Rodney Dangerfield) faking a kidnapping.

It was amusing, but I found it tough to sit through without picking up a magazine.
