When Moe points out that Homer lacks an alcohol licence Homer claims his bar is a hunting club and vows to prove it by shooting a turkey.

"Give me legs, father!"
23 February 2011 | by (Troy, NY) – See all my reviews

Moe loses his edge as a bartender and decides to go back to school, so Homer tries to take over at the local tavern. When that doesn't work, Homer opens his own bar in the Simpsons family garage! This episode looks like a fun, typical sitcom story -- but watch closely for the darker elements. When Moe goes back to bartender school, he meets an old professor he admires -- but sadly, the man is dying of cancer. Watch the scene where he walks into the campus lake and drowns himself while Moe just stands there. Pretty dark stuff.

Sometimes the darkness is almost surreal. Watch Homer clean out his garage to build a home bar, and you see a half-built robot crawl out of the shadows. Apparently Homer started him and never finished? That's funny, but then the robot goes, "give me legs, father." And Homer just looks at him. Not a dumb look, mind you, but a hard blank look -- the way God looks at all human suffering? Then the robot crawls off down the street and we go back to a typical sitcom about the guys needing a new place to drink.

Sometimes this show is so good you have to watch it with a magnifying glass!
