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!

I dunno why, but my DVR has been missing new Simpsons episodes for the past 2 weeks. Figures I's miss a good one!

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.
