Pretty funny episode.
19 November 2007 | by PytheSee all my reviews

Season six was the first season of The Simpsons that had a very disjointed feel about it. Some of the episodes felt like Season Five episodes, and some felt like much later ones. This falls into the former category. Fear of Flying has the same structured randomness to it that made seasons four and five so wonderful. Marge actually gets some funny lines here, and a character attribute that was hinted at earlier is further developed: despite being the voice of reason, she doesn't always have it all together. Homer's search to find a new bar leads to a very funny Cheers parody. The highlight of this episode is probably Anne Bancroft, who deserves to go down in history as one of the funniest guest stars ever. Her soothing yet sarcastic voice is perfect for psychiatrist Dr. White, who isn't nearly as patient and compassionate as we might expect. Overall a strong episode.
