Homer gets arrested during a riot at a St. Patrick's Day parade. While out on bond, he meets a bail bondsman who gets him a job in the same line of work. Homer proves inept at his new occupation and nearly loses his life when a bond-jumper fires a bullet at his head. Luckily, Flanders happens to be standing in front of Homer with a sheet of bullet-proof glass. A grateful Homer persuades Flanders to be his partner. Ethical dilemmas mark Flanders's new job with his unethical buddy. But the worst dilemma comes when Flanders is asked to bring in one last bond-jumper: Homer Simpson. Meanwhile, Marge takes a job baking cakes before she realizes her new employer is an erotic bakery. Written by J. Spurlin

You really need to appreciate this modern episode more!
19 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

If you've been watching The Simpsons since the beginning on December 17, 1989, then just wait 980 weeks to see this episode on September 28, 2008. If you didn't stop watching before May 9, 1999, then you're already halfway there. It's a really great episode where Homer Simpson and Ned Flanders get to become bounty hunters until they start arguing about how to do things, which leads to a really clever twist in the final act that I won't spoil for you here if you want to check it out. It's something really new and great that they never tried before in the last 19 seasons and Phantomstrider8 even said it was the coolest concept for The Simpsons ever. There's no holds barred on pieces like this! I've read those other reviews and it seems like most of them only think more negatively of this episode because it's in a later season. If it was in an earlier season, and the animation was different but everything else remained the same, more people might appreciate this more, so this episode really deserves a rating over 8, or you're not giving Kevin Curran enough credit.
