Synopsis: Homer loses his license and Marge feels unappreciated when driving him around and running his errands.
Discussion: Screwed if I know what this episode was about. Something about Homer being a jerk and Marge stressing. Throw in a couple of absurd musical numbers and you end up with a confused look on your face and a subtle gladness that the atrocity is finally over.
There are no redeeming features to this episode. No classic lines, no discernible plot, and even the three guest stars are out of place; they feel shoved in at the last moment in a vain attempt to bring a pulse to the dying show. It’s one of the worst episodes thus far simply because I got to the end and thanked the Lord it was over. What the hell was that about? No, really, someone please tell me because I have no idea.
