Now This Is What I Like!
13 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the tenth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and it is a laughter riot. I was laughing nonstop especially when we learn how Homer made his secret alcoholic recipe. There is a touching theme here on the value of friendship and how success does not equal friendship. Also, Aerosmith was an excellent guest star because they knew how to rock out.

In this episode, "Flaming Moe's", Homer introduces Moe his recipe which he invented and Moe decides to betray his friend and uses the recipe as his own invention which gives him lots of success, but may have lost Homer as a friend.

Overall, another excellent episode. It was really funny. I also liked when Bart does his usual prank call and he almost gets caught. But Aerosmith so far is one of the greatest guest stars to appear in an Simpsons episode to date. I rate this episode 9/10.
