    Rate/Review: And Maggie Makes Three

    Another brilliant flashback episode. The moment when Bart told the story and Homer's head began to inflate was hilarious, and pretty much everything about this episode was priceless. A definite 5/5, becoming yet another one of my favourites.

    Another very good flashback episode, which isn't quite as good as its predecessors, BUT is still very entertaining, with a fully-developed plot and some great original gags, notably the Sperm Scene, and Patty and Selma phoning up Aaronson and Zykowski. The ending is nicely done and sappy - the good kind of sappy.

    Best flashback EVER. A+

    A spectacular episode indeed. It had great humor and a truly touching story behind it. One of the best of the flash-back episodes, and that's truly saying something. This episode was almost flawless. 5/5

    It's classic when Bart punches the wall when he gets the bad news about the toilet paper.

    4 out of 5. A little too maudlin at the end.

    Flashback episodes are consistantly good. An A+.
    I'm glad Scully never sullied the flashback reputation by doing one.

    Better than the other flashback episodes, this one isn't just "sentimental", but also verry funny(other flashback eps were mostly too emotional)

    4.41247 out of 5, so I voted 5/5

    Probably my Favourite episode ever, so that definatley makes for the best flashback episode ever.

    Perfect episode, with the best ending in the show's history, IMO. Everything since Homer realizes that he has to leave his dream job is beyond great.
    Strong plot, perfect characterizations, hilarious moments...
    5/5. One of my favorites.

    But what about the Blunder Years? I know it's not Scully, but it's somewhat a flashback episode and it is horrid.

    Anyway... And Maggie makes 3 is perfect, I could watch it again and again and yeah, the ending is the best part. A+

    I have to re-watch it but I think it´s a 4/5 . For some reason I´m not the biggest fan of flashback episodes. I think they are all pretty good, but I prefer great "normal" episodes. But I think The Way We Was is a 5/5, because it was the first and the most original one in my opinion, they invented the whole flashback idea with pretty different characterization of the stars of the show, cause they were much younger in that one.

    And Maggie Makes Three is a funny and very complete episode and I specially love the Sperm Scene, but I´m not as enthusiastic with the ending. It was O. K. and I have nothing against it, but I think there are better endings anyway.

    One of my favorite flashback episodes (of course, I say that about all...er...most of them), for so many reasons. It's funny, it gets the emotion just right, and, like all flashback episodes (well, almost) it has a memorable, touching ending. I really that that Homer's reaction to Maggie's birth was a nice angle for a flashback show, particularly because we got to see the family only two years from the present...and see how their family life changed because of Maggie. Not much more to say, really. An episode that lives up to the reputation of season 6, the series, and flashback episodes in general.

    This used to be one of my favorites, but has dropped down a bit.

    For what its worth, many elements of this episode are very moving, and the whole episode is basically hilarious. If there's a "problem" with it, its that too much of the story doesn't really utilize the flashback element very well. It turns into a fairly simple "Homer gets a job" story through most of the middle, albeit with little bits here and there about Marge's pregnancy. While that element of the story is highly entertaining in its own right, compared to the truly moving and hilarious previous flashback episodes it feels somewhat empty.

    But with that said, this is still a very well done episode. Again, the emptier elements are still well done and hilarious. And while this episode never really reaches the level of any of the previous flashbacks, it has its own sort of brilliance, be it some ingenious and memorable gags, or the truly moving ending. In the trilogy of flashbacks about the birth of the Simpson kids, this one comes out last, but is nonetheless a fitting and quality ending.

    B+/A-
    Two eyes, two ears, a chin, a mouth, ten fingers, two nipples, a butt, two kneecaps, a penis. I've just described to you the Loch Ness Monster. And the reward for its capture? All the riches in Scotland. So I have one question: why are you here?

    Well said, DtBm. I agree with your review, but not at all with your grade. I give this episode an A-.

    One of the best flashbacks, but I do think the ending is cheesy.
    4/5
