Homer Plows Snow!
4 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the ninth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons and this happen to be a fairly solid episode that is quite funny. It features some world-class cultural references regarding Batman Forever and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. There are some good cameos by the original Batman himself, Adam West and singer Linda Rondstadt. I also liked the theme of friends becoming rivals as that is the main theme here.

In this episode, "Mr. Plow," after destroying his car, Homer decides to buy a snowplow and he starts his own business named Mr. Plow. But competition comes along in the name of Plow King aka Barney Gumble, which costs Homer lots of business.

Overall, this is a very good episode and one of my season favorites. It is also one of those few episodes that feature snow outside of holiday episodes, which is good to see. But the jokes remain strong and clever as always. I rate this episode 9/10.
