"This Is Ned Flanders, My Friend!"
14 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. In fact I will come out and say that this is my favorite episode of the entire series.

When Ned wins tickets to a football game he asks Homer to go with him. Desperate, Homer decides to go with him. Won over by Ned's kindness and generosity, Homer becomes friends with Ned and spends a lot of time with him. After spending a lot of time with Homer, Ned begins to hate his new friend.

I think the entire plot involving Homer becoming friends with Homer is awesome. For the entire series Homer always hated Flanders so it is cool how he becomes friends with him for this episode. I always like the episodes where something that would never happen usually happens for one episode. This is a really funny episode. Whether it be Homer mistaking a waffle for God, Bart getting Rod and Todd hyper off a pixie stick, or Moe reading to the homeless this episode has got it all. I do not want to give too much away but there is even a heart touching scene towards the end which seems to be missing from newer Simpson Episodes.

Great episode. The best of the series and you must see it.
