sylvandale's insight:

This could have been one of the Simpson's best episodes. And, as far as the "killing" bit, you are certainly not going to experience that at a family dude ranch. Dude Ranches are a blast and 'disconnecting' is exactly what a character like Bart needs; he would certainly find his stride at Sylvan Dale!
