Different Episode,
17 May 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Homer Goes To Prep School is a very good Simpsons episode with a lot of really funny scenes.I really enjoyed Tom Waits character and fans of him will definitely appreciate his guest appearance.But I especially enjoyed this episodes take on people preparing for the end of the world,they had a very good take on how strangely concerned some people are today about the end of the world and how they exaggerate on preparing for it,its was really funny take on this by the Simpsons.If you enjoyed the episode from the fifteenth season,Thank Gods Its Doomsday,you should probably enjoy this one,but they give us a different take on preparing for the end of the world.

Homer becomes part of a group and heads out to a secret location with the rest of the family and prepare for the end of the world.
