Not recommend if you're a hardcore Spider-Man fan!
9 January 2010 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

Here we have a very simple idea that turned out working pretty damn well, delivering lots of good jokes and some of those truly memorable things that you'll bring to the conversation of great Simpsons moments. It's not really a perfect episode but Homer vs. Dignity is more than just a watchable one.

Here two minor subplots will build perfectly the main one. On one hand we the Simpsons in a very bad economical situation, hell they are just unable to afford anything. On the other hand we have Smithers out of town, so we have Mr. Burns alone (is just as expected as hilarious to watch how damn useless is Mr. Burns!). It's pretty obvious what will happen, and believe Homer together with Mr. Burns is often pure dynamite!

The episode doesn't give you anything new of both characters, but certainly that's just fine. Still is pretty darn extreme having Homer literally eating the number 1 of Spider-Man just for Burns' amusement! I mean, I don't think any hardcore Spider-Man fan, or just comic book fan will suffer anything less than Comic Book Guy! Definitely that's THE moment of Homer vs. Dignity (also the whole Panda thing was hilarious! Poor Homer!). Lisa's role here is also the expected but anyway, this is a very good show.
