Flaming Moe is a terrific Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes. I liked seeing Moe and Smithers team up in an episode that you would never expect from the show, as we see Moe's Tavern get turned in to a gay bar, the scenes where Moe pretends he is gay himself and particularly the scene towards the end where he runs for politics is very funny. The episode struggles with who it's lead character is, it goes to Smithers at the beginning, then moves to Homer and Marge for a bit, and finally to Moe, it should have had its focus on one character throughout, and I think that should have been Smithers, it is rare to see him lead an episode and I was excited about it, but then it goes to Moe, someone who has plenty of episodes centred on him. The side story was the highlight of the episode for me, the connection between Bart and Skinner was brilliant here, and his desperate attempts to win over the new music teacher was very fun, and she was terrifcly voiced by Alyson Hannigan. Funny and straight forward, Flaming Moe is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.
When Smithers convinces Moe to change his tavern into a gay bar, he pretends he's gay to blend in, meanwhile, a replacement music teacher for Mr Largo starts dating Principal Skinner.
