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”.

Which… you know… he passes…

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…
