Storyline

Lisa joins a maths quiz team, who fare poorly against rivals who have superior technology. So Springfield goes totally digital, burning paper books . Unfortunately a meltdown means the entire system crashes but using decidedly old-fashioned methods Lisa builds up the quiz team and, with unlikely help from Bart, takes it to victory.

There have been much much MUCH worse season finales... trust me
17 May 2015 | by j-libran17See all my reviews

This was a cute one. Not bad, not the best, just there. I liked that it didn't have that cluttered feel like most of the modern Simpsons episodes, but at the same time, certain gags felt out of place. Well actually just one gag in particular: that jug band at the end. I was fixing dinner in between commercials, so did I maybe miss something that may have caused the jug band gag? Or was it just for filler. Oh well.

Btw, the AMAZING couch gag with Rick and Morty was, in my opinion, the best Simpsons crossover since the episode with The Critic. It was witty, well animated, and did justice for both already amazing shows.

Anyways, this wasn't the best season finale, but it also wasn't the worst. And it's good to hear Harry Shearer's characters presumably for the last time here (but hey, the future might have some hope, right?)
