Curse you Mike Scully!

This is one of the most pathetic Simpsons episodes ever created. Its completely out-of-character beginning, the poorly created plot-line, and it's shameful ending show what every sitcom should try to avoid. I mean, the entire PBS network after Homer? What is happening to the Simpsons? The entire concept of Homer forced into becoming a missionary was awfully executed, with little to no laugh-out-loud moments and an overall lack of effort from the writers and producers. Most episodes have a few redeeming factors among them, but this one didn't! The writers could've have at least made it funny so it wouldn't be a total waste of 23 minutes, but no, they chose to accept this atrociously written piece of crud. Honestly, this makes Family Guy look good!
