Homer Simpson: Night gathers and now my Duff-Watch begins. It shall not end until my death, or my 12 week option is not picked up.

Impressive for season 26
15 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

It's always fun to see Homer's latest crazy job, and this one definitely seems to be a fair edition to the collection. Yeah, I rated it a 9, because I absolutely LOVED all of the gags in this one. Homer's bursting eye was disgustingly funny, and the Simpsons kids ruining Ned's pictures of Maude was definitely the best scene in this episode, in my opinion.

It's a great episode and stays true to Homer's good old saying: Alcohol, the problem of and solution to most of life's problems. I'd love to see more of John Frink's writing in future episodes, because this one was really good in my opinion.
