Storyline

Marge takes a depressed Moe to Capital City where he acquires a new suit and a new image, wowing market men into selling shares in his home-made whiskey. Unfortunately the suit unravels in a lift and with the smart image gone nobody is interested in Moe any longer. Meanwhile Grandpa has an accident whilst in Bart's care and feigns illness to get attention and Lisa, initially shocked to see a hologram of Bleedin' Gums Murphy used in an ad campaign, learns that such commercial exploitation is actually a means of bringing a dead artist to a wider audience.

A Solid Episode with Some very Dark Humour,
14 June 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Whiskey Business is a very well written Simpsons episode with loads of very funny scenes. It may not be the highlight of the twenty fourth season, but it is still enjoyable, taking us on a surprisingly dark journey as we follow Homer, Marge, Lenny and Carl trying to cheer up Moe after a suicide attempt, the episode as a hole isn't very dark but the set up and several jokes certainly are, I liked this, the show dosen't do it too often but whenever they do its refreshing to watch. I didn't really like the Bleeding Gums Murphy segment, it was a very brief part, lasting literally only two scenes, and when there is already one side story this one just felt unnecessary. I enjoyed the side story as it brought a lot of light to this episode, I love seeing Bart and Grandpa bonding, it dosen't occur often but when it does it's very sweet. Brings in many laughs with some dark humour while still keeping a natural Simpsons feel, Whiskey Business is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

After receiving a new suit and being discovered by some important people, Moe is given the opportunity to make some big money.
