One of my fave episodes has to be 'Bart Gets an F'. Season 2 was still an awkward transition period for The Simpsons, but that episode perfectly demonstrates the amount of heart and poignancy the show could have, while still remaining extremely funny. |
I watched it again recently, and it reminded me of how much I used to struggle in school; I always had times when I tried so hard on a test or an assignment and ended up failing miserably. Bart's plea towards Ms. Krabbapel (sorry there's commentary, it was the best link I could find) is so sincere and heart-breaking, and is possibly the most I've been able to relate to an animated character. Nancy Cartwright did such a phenomenal job that episode.
