Storyline

The Simpsons host a tastemaker party at their home to promote Absolut Krusty, Krusty the Clown's own brand of liquor. Mr. Burns takes notice of the party's success and decides to promote Homer to "Account Man" for the Springfield Nuclear Plant. Robert Marlow, a seasoned account veteran, takes Homer under his wing and shows Homer what the high life is like in the corner office. Meanwhile, Lisa introduces Bart to a new literary world which sparks his interest in reading classic novels, and when Homer's long hours at the office become the norm, a family vacation with Marge and the kids helps him realize that family always comes before work.

Good take on Mad Men but doesn't live up to its previous episodes,
18 July 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Man In The Blue Flannel Pants is a good,funny and enjoyable episode with a good storyline and makes a good parody on Mad Men,also featuring two guest stars that are on the series,John Slattery(AKA Roger Sterling)as Robert Marlowe and Matthew Weiner(the creator of Mad Men) as a businessman.However,I don't think this episode lives up to some of the previous episodes of the 23rd season,particularly The Food Wife and The Book Job,but it still is a good episodes that passes out ones like Replaceable You.

Krusty has a party at the Simpsons house to promote his new vodka,Absolute Krusty.After Mr Burns shows up,he is very impressed with the way Homer showed him how to have a good time at the party at promotes Homer to Account Man.Homer enjoys his new job but is losing time for his family and friends.
