Ned takes the Simpsons to Israel in the hopes that Homer may learn a little about religion but Homer is only interested in being a slobbish tourist - until he is whisked off into the desert during a sandstorm and,after being unconscious,awakens to spread the word of universal peace to all religions,believing himself to be the new Messiah. As it happens lots of other people also think that they are the new Messiah as well. Written by don @ minifie-1

This was not simpsons to me.
18 March 2011 | by tristenbalboaSee all my reviews

What happened? what on earth happened to my favorite childhood show? The episode started off nicely, but halfway through, it started to get really rotten. I get so depressed when i watch the new episodes. Their not funny at all, nor do they even have a good plot or character development. Let's just face it, season 21 was probably the worst season the show has suffered from. If you really want my advice, just stay away from this episode, and don't bother watching it, even if your planning to watch all of season 21. The only episodes i would advise to watch in 21 is Chief of Hearts, The Bob next door, and The Whale episode, other then that, STAY AWAY FROM THE REST AND ESPECIALLY THIS EPISODE!!
