Synopsis: Something about a football game and Bart barracking for a Boston team.
The premise of this episode is hate: Homer takes the family on a hate-cation to show them the worst the city has to offer. It’s brilliant in that this episode also shows the worst the series has to offer. What terrific irony!
This ep is full of insults and offensive phrases, some of which aren’t even intentional. I’m not sure what this episode is about other than to make fun of the Bostonian accent. I’m sure there’s a deeper meaning hidden in here, but I’m having trouble isolating it. Ultimately, it’s just another Simpsons family outing which doesn’t make sense.
