Storyline

Bart flushes a cherry bomb at school, nearly injuring Principal Skinner's mother, Agnes, in the process. An exasperated Skinner tells Homer and Marge that since expulsion would not do Bart any good, he's placing him in a foreign-exchange student program. Bart is sent to France, where his host family are unethical winemakers who plan to employ him as a slave. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Not great
27 February 2020 | by studioATSee all my reviews

For me this is a weaker episode from S1.

It has it's moments, but hasn't got that level of depth or heart I've seen from other episodes in a stellar S1.
