It's one of the reasons I don't like season eight. "THTF" suffers from a lifeless plot, predictable story and that stupid humor is just jaw-dropping, 2/5
Meh, it was alright. There was nothing drastically wrong with this episode, but it wasn't spectacular either. The humor was okay, the plot was okay, though the characterization and involvement of Moe was better than okay. Tatum was a fun character, as was Lucius Sweet. However, this episode just doesn't have enough spark to be regarded as a classic. I give it a 3/5.
Great Episode! Very Funny! A
3/5. Nothing special. Some good gags here and there, but other than that very forgettable.
Good stuff. (4/5)
It was an amusing outing, but doesn't have very much substance. Very funny at first, the humor starts to slowly deteriorate towards the episode's end. There is some (rather thin) satire on the world of boxing, with Lucius Sweet quite obviously modelled on promoter Don King, and is a good one-time character, although he appears again in isolated little scenes in future episodes. I felt that the explanation for Homer's ability to take punches without being knocked down was pathetic and absurd, and could have used some better writing there. On the positive side, it was good to see some more about Moe's past life, and it was equally good to see a human side to Moe, rather than as the bartender from the tavern. I loved the parallels between Drederick Tatum and Mike Tyson, and I also noticed that Drederick Tatum was differently drawn from his last appearances (Homer VS. Lisa and the Eighth Commandment & Flaming Moe's), but this version of him is a definite improvement, and has been used in every episode he's been in since. Overall, a fairly good episode, but not one to write home about. There are days when I love it, and there are days when it's just "OK."
Solid episode. 4/5
Very good episode.
3/5, pretty lame. But not unwatchable, despite how oft-played it is.
I was saying "Boo-urns."
