One of the best episodes of the series!

The Simpsons really has gotten a lot of harsh criticism of many fans
starting around season 8, and really kicking in around season 11. For
some reason, some people believe that because at one time they liked
the episodes better, that there has not been one good episode since
1997, and boy are they wrong, and this is a prime example.
Moe goes down to see the opening of a large flower, but unfortunately
he puts the capacity at one too many, so he's kicked out. This leads
him to try and commit suicide, but before he can, due to a freak
occurrence, he ends up saving Maggie Simpson's life when catching her
under a bridge. He begins to babysit her, but after becoming too
clingy, he's banned from seeing her. It's up to him to help find her
when she goes missing...chaos ensues.
This episode is both funny and sweet. Moe is more likable here than he
normally is, yet he also retains his extremely rude and mean traits.
The whole episode is very funny, without any lame clichéd jokes. The
bonding between Maggie and Moe is sweet, and makes this a memorable
episode and plot. The episode also features one of Fat Tony's greatest
appearances, and ends with a Queen song...how could you go wrong.
Overall, this is one of my very favorite Simpsons episodes. It's really
a season 14 classic, and a reason why this show still remains popular
after so many years.
My rating: **** out of ****. 30 mins.
