I’ve learned that life is one crushing defeat after another until you just wish Flanders was dead.— Homer
All the submitted reviews for Tennis the Menace (CABF07). All ratings are out of 5. The average rating for this episode is 3.81.
Another solid episode. It starts with yet another repeated gag - Homer in the shower, and Bart making it hotter and colder (recycled from Bart Vs. Australia). I think this was just added to fill up the 21 minutes.
The old people's home talent contest was funny, as was the quick jump from the cemetery to the tennis court. The rest of this episode was average, but there were some funny bits. The best by far was Kent Brockman being told what to say, especially when he said, "I guess you could say I'm Iraqi." Other good stuff included Wiggum and Lou wanting to play tennis, Burns' chessboard, Homer's home testing kit, and Dr Hibbert's outdoor operation.
However, Homer thinking that Bart was going to kill him and marry Marge was a weird twist, and shows just how paranoid Homer can get (similar to Kill The Alligator And Run, when he thinks that everyone is out to get him). Also, the swapping partners thing was really unnecessary.
This episode was too average with only a few highlights. It was a big disappointment after Worst Episode Ever.
I found this particular episode a bit bad. I give it a 3.5/5 but this system dosen't allow me.
This was one of the greats in my opinion. Did anyone nootice how the animation drastically changed though?
