Final ThoughtsI think this episode is slightly before it’s time because people have been taking advantage of the through the courts to get money they don’t deserve. But this episode does drag in places.

Season 2

Episode 6 – Dead Putting Society

Couch Gag – This time we get the whole family including Snowball II and Santa’s Little Helper

Plot SynopsisIn an attempt to show up Ned Flanders, Homer pits Bart against Ned’s son, Todd, in a miniature golf competition.

What is going on reallyWe start with Homer doing yard work with an old lawnmower only for the start of the rivalry between Homer and Ned as Homer gets shown up by Flanders and his life.

Homer snaps leading to him getting kicked out of Flanders house as he questions why his perfect isn’t as perfect as his, while Ned is dealing with how he treated Homer wrong.

This gives us a chance to see how Reverend Lovejoy has to deal with Ned’s religious issues at all hours of the day which is going to be an ongoing event through the series.

Continuing the rivalry, we get Bart and Todd having to face each other in a mini gold (crazy golf in England) tournament so Homer can get one over Flanders for once.

Final ThoughtsI feel this episode is very important because we get good adult jokes going on throughout the show that children wouldn’t understand. I also liked the inclusion of the beginning of the rivalry between Homer and Ned in what is the second episode where Homer doesn’t think his family is good enough compared to another.

Rating 4/5

Season 2

Episode 5 – Dancin’ Homer

Couch Gag – This time Maggie appears from Marge’s hair.

Plot SynopsisHomer’s heckling of the Springfield Isotopes baseball team during one of their games inadvertently leads to his appointment as the new team mascot.

What is going on reallyWe start as Homer is recounting his story of his work baseball night out, but I do find it strange how Mr Burns has forgotten the family’s name after the last episode which revolved around the Simpsons trying to help Mr Burns become Governor.

The local team Springfield Isotopes are the worst team in the league but Homer’s night is something he never expected when he bonds with Mr Burns. Homer starts dancing inspiring the team to win their first game in years.

With Homer become the mascot the team goes on the first unbeaten run in their history. Unlike the players, Homer gets called up to major leagues to be the mascot for a bigger team and a new city for the family.

The Simpson’s learn the hardest lesson as the fans reject Dancin’ Homer and they return to Springfield in shame.

Final ThoughtsThis does feel like a slow episode that show how the show is happy to forget the events in previous episodes, some of the jokes are long winded and I feel this is a very weak episode from the show.
