The Simpsons Shorts: House of Cards, Bart and Dad Eat Dinner Reviews

Short #12: House of Cards

Like some of the other shorts, Matt Groening went with something mundane. To be honest, there's not enough comedy out of this one where Bart builds a house of cards. Not much else can be said. I like seeing failure and getting some laughs out of it, but it wasn't funny. Even Lisa's dialogue didn't come off as something to get a chuckle of. A pretty forgettable short.

Score: 5 out of 10

Short #13: Bart and Dad Eat Dinner

Homer's not always the best choice to cook food. Check out the show's Season 7's Homer the Smithers where he makes Mr. Burns breakfast and burns everything. For this short, he's tasked of making food for himself and Bart. It's one of those that starts off pretty slow and gets better. This takes off when Bart is forced to eat the mix of fish nuggets and pork a roni. All I'll say for the ending is that it's a very sweet one with you getting a laugh. Not it's strongest short, but one of the better ones.

Score: 6.5 out of 10

More kid goodness next week. The kids play Space Patrol in one short, and Bart gets a haircut in the other one.
