    The third act is the one that it´s not as good as the other two. John was a good character and , this reminds me of the topic introduced about Homer in the Rate and Review of There´s Something About Marrying, ...Homer is very well used to do social criticism in this one . Very funny and a good episode, but a little overrated. 4/5

    4/5.

    The end is a big letdown.

    4/5 - very funny stuff. Although i will never get why it's called "Homer's phobia" instead of "Homer phobia"

    I never ever tire of it and I find it to be absolutely hilarious and fantastic. The gay steel mill is the best.

    Not many flaws in this. Sort of shows Homer has some responsibility for Bart but a well executed episode. Lots of laughs and gay references to keep me happy. A classic/excellent episode 5/5

    I'll have to agree - this one had a 5/5 for the first two acts, they were hilarious and classic Simpsons satire on society. Then comes the third act. Characterization was great in acts I and II, but act III was not. It seems to me like Ron Hauge just wanted to end the episode on the "everyone is tolerant of gays, no matter how else the ending goes" note. Homer should have realized his behaviour to Bart earlier, because I just did not buy John saving their life. The hunting jokes were also unfunny, and the ending wasn't as smooth as I thought it would be.

    Overall it's a 4/5, thanks to great first and second acts.
    Bart: "Please don't call our parents!"
    Chief: "I'm afraid I have to for hijinks like these. Hijinks - it's a funny word. Three dotted letters in a row."
    Eddie: "Is it hyphenated?"
    Chief: "It used to be, back in the good old days, you know. Of course, every generation hyphenates the way it wants to. Then there's *NSYNC! What the hell is that? Jump in any time there, Eddie, these are good topics."

    One of the best episodes of S8.

    Homer: Bart where did you get that T-Shirt?
    Bart: it came out of the closet
    Homer: okay...

    Jokes start to fall flat in the final act, but it's a pretty good episode overall. The gay steel mill scene is a definite highlight.

    4/5

    I enjoyed this more on repeat viewing. The line about hunting seeming kinda gay is a fav of mine and the steel mill is a laugh riot. The way the plot was resolved was kinda goofy, but I'll bite. Probably around a 3.5/5 rounding up.

    Another brilliant episode from season 8. Although the ending is strange,it's still great. My favorite part is the popular scene in steel mill. John is a funny character,too. 5/5

    4/5 - not too shabby. It's a good episode, but just not as endearing as many other season 8 episodes.

    I think I'll bump this thread in order to pose my different opinion on this episode.

    I think that this episode displays Homer as a total jerk. He just seems so blatantly prejudiced. I find that in the past, any time Homer has had a jerkish attitude, it has at least some kind of rationality and never left him completely unlikable, but this was just ridiculous. It seemed they had to make him overly prejudiced to get the message across, and, while I have nothing against the message, I felt that Homer's prejudice was just overdone. I also thought that Bart lacked his charm here. He was fine in the beginning, but apart from a few lines, he just seemed robotic, only really seen through Homer's distorted view. And the end was atrocious. I think that Homer's forcing Bart to shoot a reindeer is just wrong. Homer doesn't usually go this far no matter how deeply involved he gets in his schemes. Forcing Bart to kill a reindeer just makes me cringe. If this aired during the Scully Era, I'm almost positive there would be criticism. And the reindeers attacking Homer was just useless unfunny pain. I will admit that this episode is hilarious, however, and Homer isn't always terrible. Some parts were interesting and the animation direction was superb. These high points bring it up to a B-. I just felt the need to rant about this episode, because I think it's perhaps one of the most overrated episodes of all time.

    Does Homer really strike you as the type to not be predjudiced against gays o_0? Homer isn't exactly the most tolerant of people, the fact that he wouldn't want Bart to be gay really doesn't surprise me in the least.


    As for my own opinion of the episode, I gotta agree with the majority. Classic, especially the gay steel mill. The tiny little jokes were just hilarious, I thought Bart being pushed a little in the back was pretty effective to show more focus on Homer.

    No, but he strikes me as the person who would be unconsciously intolerant of gays (not flat out cruel, just intolerant without giving the matter much thought); not blatantly prejudiced to the point that he would force his own son to shoot a reindeer based on a false assumption.

    You seem to be addressing my earlier point, so I will just say that that wasn't my problem. My problem was that when he was shown, he lacked his usual cynical, bratty, talk-back self. He was just there to provide the conflict. He had no charm. He seemed robotic. Even if it went for a more superficial focus on him to emphasize Homer's curiosities, I still prefer to see some of his usual bratty charm.

    Excellent. 5/5
    she didnt exactly read shrek the 3rd, which apparently exists as some sort of companion book for a pixar movie. no, this would probably take several minutes (perhaps 10), and would have ultimately depricated the shrek 3 cinematic experience

    she merely looked at the book

    she saw it, perhaps in the childrens section of a barnes & noble, registered it in her mind as being in existance, and filed it away for later as the subject for a post on BOOKS YOUVE READ. only she just looked at it. and it was shrek 3

    in a way its the saddest post ive ever read

    -toxic shock syndrome
