The Simpsons: "MoneyBART"

 

Lisa’s dreams of making it to an Ivy League school are threatened when Springfield Elementary’s only Ivy Leaguer informs her that she’s got a long, long way to go. Bart’s Little League team is threatened when coach Flanders resigns. Bart needs a coach. Lisa needs an extra-curricular activity. What could possibly go wrong? When your coach doesn’t know anything about baseball, a lot, and after a struggling start, The Simpsons has re-established itself with “MoneyBART”, episode 3 of season 22.

The Simpsons, "Loan-A-Lisa"

A gift of $50 may make for a poor inheritance from Grandpa, but the Simpsons are determined to make the best of it; especially Lisa, who anonymously sponsors Nelson’s burgeoning business venture. The road to hell, however, is paved with good intentions, and this one leads both Lisa and Nelson to unexpected places. Meanwhile, Marge is backed into a corner after mistakenly attempting to buy a $500 purse, and Homer seizes on the opportunity to live the good life - one day at a time. After last week’s “Elementary School Musical” opened The Simpsons’ 22nd season with a resounding crash, the show is back on track - for the most part - with “Loan-A-Lisa”.
