Not bad, but the beginning of The Simpsons star system
By Jack Anderson on August 7, 2018
The episode is not bad, there is no denying about it. But at the same time, I found that Homer being sent to an asylum because he is wearing a pink shirt was not realistic, not one bit. And at the same time, having Michael Jackson as part of the episode actually diminished the quality of the episode. There was no real search, it was more trying to find a way to place Michael Jackson in the episode than really having a true need of having the celebrity.
But still, the episode ends on a very catchy tune. Happy birthday Lisa! Lisa, happy birthday!
An average episode. I give it 4 out of 10.
