Homer gets arrested during a riot at a St. Patrick's Day parade. While out on bond, he meets a bail bondsman who gets him a job in the same line of work. Homer proves inept at his new occupation and nearly loses his life when a bond-jumper fires a bullet at his head. Luckily, Flanders happens to be standing in front of Homer with a sheet of bullet-proof glass. A grateful Homer persuades Flanders to be his partner. Ethical dilemmas mark Flanders's new job with his unethical buddy. But the worst dilemma comes when Flanders is asked to bring in one last bond-jumper: Homer Simpson. Meanwhile, Marge takes a job baking cakes before she realizes her new employer is an erotic bakery. Written by J. Spurlin

Hit and miss
27 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Simpsons Movie was the best thing to come from the show in over ten years, and season 19 had a few good episodes. This episode was hit and miss. Some good moments include a brief (but underused) Dog the Bounty Hunter parody, another Batman montage, some genuine Homer and Flanders moments, and the fight between the Irish and Northern Irish. Am I the only person who still watches the show that is sick and tired of the leprachaun character? He made good use here, but doesn't seem like he should be a regular character. Homer just comes across as too unlikeable at times, and how many times has he been to jail/prison? I give it a 3/5, but the rest of the season has been better than this.
