Vastly Entertaining!

The fifth episode in the second season of the Simpsons is really worth watching and is funny as well. It may not the best episode, but as a baseball fan, I knew I would enjoy this episode. I can see why sports fans may not like this, but the jokes did not go over my head. Also the cameo by Tony Bennett is worth watching for.

In this episode, "Dancin' Homer," Homer drunkenly dances at a baseball game in Springfield and somehow snaps their losing streak. When that happens, he becomes their mascot. Eventually, he gets called up to Capital City where he gets promoted to the Bigs.

Overall, I really enjoyed this episode because it's baseball-related. It's funny, especially when Homer begins busting out his moves. I rate this episode 9/10.
