Average Episode,but the Scenes that Aren't from Pther Episides are Actually Very Funny,
10 June 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Gump Roast is a good Simpsons episode with an average storyline.Obviously it is a weak episode,definitely the weakest of the thirteenth season,because it is a clip show,which are just episode where every scene sets up a bunch of clips from older episodes.While I did enjoy the old scenes they showed,you obviously watch the show for new jokes,which is why I am quite glad this was the series last clip show to date.Although I did like the parts that wern't clips,they were very funny,particularly the parts at Homers roast,a lot of the characters had some really funny albeit insulting things to say about Homer,and I also enjoyed the beginning of the episode that parodied Forrest Gump.Its still an enjoyable episode,but Gump Roast is filled with scenes from other episodes,so it obviously isn't outstanding,but it still delivers laughs.

Homer is honored at his own roast where some close family and friends and even some unexpected guests show us some of his best and most embarrassing moments.
