Nice to See a Different Side of Homer,
13 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Labor Pains is a great Simpsons episode with a very good storyline and plenty of very funny scenes.The episode was,once again,a very sweet one (I'm not complaining,the Simpsons is very good at this) that shows a very different side to Homer,as he takes care of a child he delivered that has no father,I loved seeing this side of Homer.I think the episodes side story was very weak,sometimes I feel like the side story is so good it could be a solo episode,but this was one was unnecessary and took you away from a good story.Labor Pains is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Homer proves to be good in a crisis when he shares a special moment with a pregnant woman in a lift.
