Storyline

Ned takes the Simpsons to Israel in the hopes that Homer may learn a little about religion but Homer is only interested in being a slobbish tourist - until he is whisked off into the desert during a sandstorm and,after being unconscious,awakens to spread the word of universal peace to all religions,believing himself to be the new Messiah. As it happens lots of other people also think that they are the new Messiah as well. Written by don @ minifie-1

A Very Different, Enjoyable Simpsons,
27 May 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed is a great Simpsons episode with a reasonably well written plot and plenty of very funny scenes. It's certainly a different episode, as the family heads to Israel on a religious retreat, hilarity certainly ensues as Flanders struggles to get Homer to embrace his religion.

It does suffer from the lack of an actual plot, while the gags are very funny, they do get tiring as we, as an audience, want a story to follow. One of the highlights is certainly guest star Sacha Baron Cohen, embodying a shrewd tourist guide, he has many brilliant lines throughout. Though it's not a highlight of the Twenty First season, The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed is still great fun.

Ned talks the family in heading on a trip to Israel in order to regain Homer's religious faith, but it works out too well, as he soon becomes convinced he is the Messiah himself.
