Enjoyable, albeit Straight Forward,
17 November 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Faith Off is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and plenty of very funny scenes. It's a enjoyable episode that we get two very fun stories out of, such as Homer dealing with his life now that he has a bucket stuck on his head, followed by Bart discovering he has amazing healing powers. The episode takes forever to get to the main plot, which would be my biggest issue, though I liked Homer's parts at the beginning, it went on for two long and because of that the main plot ended up feeling very rushed and underdeveloped, it also tended to be too straight forward, there weren't really any unexpected turns throughout. My favourite moment of the episode had to be the musical number, certainly one of the longest ones they've ever had on the show, it's catchy, upbeat and very funny, always a pleasure to listen to. It's not a highlight for the eleventh season, but Faith Off has plenty of good moments that make it an enjoyable episode.

After solving a problem Homer had, Bart and the rest of Springfield are convinced he has healing powers.
