"Homer's Triple Bypass" portrays one man's will to survive, even under the worst circumstances.
5 June 2011 | by (Planet Namek) – See all my reviews

Homer needs a triple bypass operation due to heart complications... and it's a very costly procedure... so he has to rely on Dr. Nick to save his life for a cheaper price. Dr. Nick seems to be rather incompetent although he also seems to get things done through sheer luck. This is awesomeness as Lisa, who knows some cardiology, helps Dr. Nick out by telling him to cut below the blockage... and the operation is a success as Homer's heart thumps in rapid harmony. It's a great episode because Homer comes very close to meeting his demise, but averts this by a slim chance. This episode is so awesome, it portrays Homer's will to survive, even under the worst of conditions. Homer doesn't give up and sustains through hope alone. Very emotional and extremely well written.
