The Simpsons Response Paper

simpsons_couch

After viewing the episode entitled Itchy and Scratchy and Marge , your task is to craft a one page response paper that does three things. First, it should summarize the episode in the first paragraph, as per all of our response papers. Second, as you address the episode and its themes, please ensure that you answer the following question:

What subject/topic is this episode satirizing?

As you craft your response, make sure that you stick exceptionally close to the text of the episode. Remember, the best response papers use the text as a starting place, then elaborate on the themes and ideas presented in the episode.

If you’re having trouble remembering what the response paper should look like, click here for the .pdf explaining what the paper looks like.

If you need to watch the episode, let me know. I can’t keep it hosted here. Copyrights and all.
