One of the finest episodes of the Simpsons
17 August 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Team Homer is probably a episode that much focuses on how much Homer really joined the Bowling team, the episode follows Bart and Milhouse finding a MAD Special and when Bart gets a T-shirt saying Down With Homework, everybody gets Down with their homework and screams around. But then when Skinner realizes that he knew it was from MAD they made all the students wear uniforms but Homer on the other hand was joined on a bowling competition by getting Money from Burns accidentally that he is hallucinating a Poppins character, then Moe, Otto and Apu are joined in the game, but when Burns joins the game because of reputation, he steals the trophy and escapes with Homer trying to get it back

Great episode, brings me back the memories of the Simpsons, great acting and marvelous script, The humor as always funny
