I’ve learned that life is one crushing defeat after another until you just wish Flanders was dead.— Homer
All the submitted reviews for The Dad Who Knew Too Little (EABF03). All ratings are out of 5. The average rating for this episode is 3.77.
Another average episode. There were some funny things about it, and some not so funny. We start with yet another birthday for Lisa - the third and counting. Most of this was funny, however, it shocked me when Lisa said "buy me the friggin' book". Although this isn't swearing as such, it's not the kind of thing a Simpsons character would say, especially Lisa. The writers have done this a lot recently - with comments about the wiener being the strongest muscle in the body, and the word penis used several times. It's not proper Simpsons humor.
Anyway, to get into the storyline, Homer hires a detective to find out stuff about Lisa. Thinking about it, all of this was funny right up until Homer and Lisa went on the run. That's when it became a little boring. There were very few jokes in this bit. I did like when Homer was on the phone to Marge, though.
Overall, a good episode, but could have been a lot better.
I love this episode, it is my all-time favorite
