Episode Review – Homer the Father

This episode was, like many others, terrible. As I had predicted, Bart trading top secret information to spies from China was ridiculous, but that’s not the only ridiculous thing about this episode. It has been stated that The Simpsons will do anything to cram a guest star into an episode, because James Lipton was on a promotional image. And usually a promotional image shows a big, climax part of the show. But he wasn’t in it for more than a minute. Maybe less.

Otherwise, this episode was bland, boring, unfunny, and just ridiculous. Something I definitely didn’t like was the 9/11 joke, as it was a tragedy, but not only that – usually Family Guy makes those jokes (I don’t commend those either) and now The Simpsons copies Family Guy. For shame.

And I am also surprised they didn’t find a place to fit Comic Book Guy in. It was actually a relief not to see in him in just one episode.

I’ve got summer squash!

Thanks for reading,

    Oh! So a 911 joke took you off it? Maybe you should get a sense of humor! I don’t even recall a 911 joke in it. The episode was fantastic in my opinion. You’re just really uptight.

      Thanks for the insult, but anyway …

      Homer asks Marge if she wants a collectible plate, and she says that the TV Guide he is reading is 25 years old so the offer is not valid. He says that it should be, then writes “Send this to Homer Simpson from World Trade Center”.

      And this is my opinion. I don’t care if it seems uptight. If you think the episode was fantastic, go ahead. I’m not stopping you from expressing it. I will express mine as well.

    Is it wrong that what you said about CBG actually makes me want to watch this one?

    Well, that and Jake’s positive review on No Homers, but still…
