Storyline

When Ned takes a video of Homer dancing and it gets put on the Internet various sports stars ask Homer to teach them their own victory dances. At the same time Ned is using his video to make Bible stories featuring his sons. Eventually Ned and Homer - and Homer's sporting clients - combine to create a lavish recreation of Noah's flood at the Springfield stadium but it is a wash-out in every sense.

Perfectly fine Simpsons episode
7 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Perfectly fine. That's how I'd describe this episode of 'The Simpsons' from the shows 16th season.

The plot is similar to 'Dancin' Homer' way back in Season 2, only with much broader and sillier laughs. Whereas before the show would go for the quality joke, here it goes for low hanging fruit every time. It's also very, very much on Homer's head in terms of where the humour comes from.

There are some nice sweetly idiotic laughs to be found here, but this is an episode that passed without me laughing out loud once.

Even at this stage of its run 'The Simpsons' is capable of better quality than this.
