A syndicate comprising Homer, Moe, Carl and Lenny wins the lottery but Carl steals the money and the others track him down - to Iceland, from where his family originates. He has spent the winnings buying a page of history which he hopes will exonerate his ancestors from accusations of treachery though it only proves their duplicity. However Homer and his friends recall the good things Carl has done for them and persuade the Icelanders that, if the Springfieldians can forgive him, so should they. Written by don @ minifie-1

Great Development for a Very Quiet Character,
22 December 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Saga of Carl is a fantastic Simpsons episode with a great and very well written storyline that is both funny and also surprisingly very sweet.We got to know a lot a about Carl Carlson in this episode,which I was very happy with because Carl has never really talked about his personal life,and we learned more about him in this episode than we have in the last 25 years.Did episode also puts Homer,Moe,Lenny and Carl's friendship to the test and it ends up being very sweet towards the end.The Saga of Carl is a very different that is very enjoyable.

Friendships are tested when Carl skips town with $200,000,winnings from a lottery ticket he bought with Homer, Moe and Lenny
