In Defence Of Homer Simpson: Last Exit to Springfield

Inspired by a Church Sermon that said “don’t be like Homer Simpson”, I started watching The Simpsons to decide. Is he really that bad? Here’s an attempt at forming a defence based on “Last Exit to Springfield”.

Otherwise known as the one where “Lisa Needs Braces”

Choice of episode having everything to do with my trip to the dentist that morning.

In The defence of Homer Simpson: Life on the fast lane

Inspired by a Church Sermon that said “don’t be like Homer Simpson”, I started watching The Simpsons to decide. Is he really that bad? Here’s an attempt at forming a defence based on “Life on the fast lane”. Otherwise known as “The episode of The Simpsons when Homer gives Marge a bowling ball”.

The thing that really seems to make a difference here is Homer complimenting his wife.

And…

All the adults are idiots in this one.

Really…

In Defence Of Homer Simpson – The Telltale Head

Inspired by a Church Sermon that said “don’t be like Homer Simpson”, I started watching The Simpsons to decide. Is he really that bad? Here’s what I thought of The Telltale Head:

In the Telltale Head, Bart pulls a prank, asks Homer for advice, the family go to church, and father and son face the first Springfield mob – together. Somewhere in the midst of the above we have a look at what and how we show respect.

Which is all really deep and really packed for a Simpsons episode – and not a long one either.

In The Call of The Wild.

Yes it goes a little bonkers at the end (Remember it’s a TV show), but considering how bad the trip goes… he never goes off on one at his kids… in fact you could argue this is all him, trying to do the the right thing for his kids. (That. And keeping up with the Flanders)

In The Defence of Homer Simpson: Bart The Genius

Have you ever been inspired by a sermon to start something?

Well, based on a church sermon which said “Don’t be like Homer Simpson”, this is a series of podcasts where I try and show, that we are all a bit like Homer Simpson – and wonder if that would really be a bad thing anyway.

This is where I watch Bart The Genius. Where the worst that Homer does is take an interest in his son*.

I admit, its because Bart isn’t who Homer thinks he is, but you know…
