Storyline

The laughing kid of the school kids' car pool, Michael, is all of a sudden feared by everyone when it comes out that he is the son of local mob boss (or, as he says, "garbage businessman") Fat Tony. Everyone but Lisa. She tries to get to know him and finds out all he really wants to do is becoming a chef, cooking being his greatest passion. When Fat Tony is severely hurt by a whacking attempt, carried out by a rival mob considering him vulnerable for his son won't take revenge in case of his death, Michael doesn't feel like he can take over the family business. So Homer and Bart, feeling responsible for the new friends of the family, offer to take over while Fat Tony is recovering. Written by jaggermick66

Trivia

Michael is the name of Don Corleone's (Marlon Brando) son in The Godfather. He describes himself as different from his father, but fate draws him into the "family business", and he takes his father's place. Michael is played by Al Pacino, and the character Michael in this episode resembles him. See more »

The Simpsons is Back!!!
11 September 2006 | by adam262See all my reviews

The Simpsons is finally back for its 18th season and what many believe its last season. Season 18 kicked off with a great episode with great guest stars. We all know about the downfall this show took after season 9 but It looks like the funny is coming back.

This episode is full of great visual jokes and the couch gag was very funny. It's always good to see Fat Tony and its great to see an expanded version of his life and how he has a son. Although I thought the opening Act didn't help establish the story to much once Act 2 came around it really picked up.

If this is what we are in for this season I simply cant wait! and thats something I haven't been able to say about The Simpsons for some time.
