In The Simpsons

The Simpsons Season 27 Episode 9: “Barthood”: reminded us just why the TV show has established itself as one of the best series ever. The Simpsons did a parody on the 2014 movie Boyhood and managed to touch millions of hearts. The episode went into a parallel universe where Bart grew up and fulfilled his life’s “purpose”. Take a look at the recap of Episode 9 of The Simpsons and why it is ones of Season 27’s best one yet.

10-year-old Bart’s childhood is under scrutiny as the episode goes into detail about his relationship with his grandfather, Abe, sister, Lisa, and father, Homer. Throughout the episode Bart’s insecurity is revealed; how he always feels overshadowed by Lisa’s success in every situation. The first was when they were in school and Lisa, two years his junior, could read perfectly, while Bart couldn’t. Such incidents followed, even when Bart turned 12 and Lisa is declared Springfield Elementary’s student of the month for the 48th month in a row.
