Ned Flander's Meltdown Begins
10 August 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This episode follows Ned Flanders having his house destroyed by a hurricane and the others house being completely fine, then when he meets Dr Foster for his mental breakdown, then Foster shows Flanders in his earlier years that he has been bullying everyone in his path, then 8 months in his early age of getting spanked, he learns that he shouldn't do it again. On a test, Homer comes to prove that Ned Flanders is scared for anything like mosquito bites or spiders, he stopped his meltdown and returned in his happy days.

This episode i think is probably the most memorable episode of The Simpsons compared to the other episodes, the story is clearly the greatest and the voice acting is the correct stuff for this episode. Not so many laughs but still very charming and memorable for some reason
