    Not great, but not that bad. Homer's cut jokes went on too long and some other parts were stupid, like the end, but most of the episode was alright. 3/5 C+

    Yes the end was odd. The episode for me felt "half glory year" and half "Scullish". So a mixture of excellent and OK.

    Homer is incredibly irritating in this episode, I can usually cope with a bit of jerkass Homer but I hate him here, but still other than that its ok

    Good but not great. Homer is a little irritating, but I donŽt think he was more annoying here than in some MirkinŽs episodes like A Star Is Burns. IŽll give it a 4/5.

    B+ 4/5. Good episode but slightly overrated, sometimes seen on peoples Top 50's. I don't actually think Homer was too bad in this ep, and even if he was his apology to Bart at the end atleast made up for some of it. Loved the KOTH gag and Bart filling in for Nelson was very funny too. The cup scene was good but went on a bit too long really.

    It's just an "OK" episode; One of the many of S9 episodes that were at a crossroads between "Silver era" & "Scully era." B/B+

    Loved it, and I have no problem with Homer, jerkass or no jerkass.

    I agree; Homer's personality took the whole show down. Would be a 3/5 without Homer, 2/5 with. IMO this is about where the episodes as a whole started to sink below average.
    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."

    3.5/5 Nothing really special about this ep, not one of my faves but will watch it once in a while.

    " C-U-P. I wanna C-U---Oh my God..! "

    Added half a point for that, pretty funny.

    3/5; it lost points mostly because the "jerkass Homer" thing got pushed a little too far. (As always)

    2/5 becuse of the 'Jerkass Homer' thing. Also because it was boring and forgettable.

    Jerkass Homer? Complete And Utter Twat Homer more like.
    And what's with the C-U-P/Oh My God thing, was that supposed to be funny, or am I missing something subtle??

    On the plus side though, there were some good jokes, and the video game and end credits were pretty funny. So I'm going to give it a (generous) 3/5.

    Anyway I don't really like this episode. Homer needs a good punch and the story is incredibly boring and predictable.

    2/5 I never liked this one,but still not terrible. Something's wrong in Homer's characterisation here...

    Just saw it Friday, a good episode, nothing spectacular, I really liked Nelson's performance and the Skittlebrau conversation, I gave it a 4/5, but I think it's more like a 3.5/5

    There were some lame bits in this episode, but there was more good bits in the episode too. The cup jokes wasn't funny at all, and Homers characterization was bad. The end credits was funny, though. I'll rate it with 3/5.

  29. #29


    Yeah, this is a season 9 episode. Homer's casual malevolence here is so typically Scully as the default characterization. It really does seem like the staff thinks that making Homer loud, rude, and obnoxious is inherently funny. Even when he becomes nice to Bart, he's still written to be as annoying as possible, with almost every scene possible filled with his ridiculous about-face faith in Bart. Tiring, made worse by its sitcomish plot (even if the episode mocks sitcom cliches, the Joe Namath scene for instance). Helped a bit by still crisp joke writing thankfully, even if the episode alternates between funny and juvenile. C

    Yawn, typical season 9 blandness. There is no interesting conflict to speak of. I could care less if Homer was a good coach, or if Bart would forgive him. There are a few amusing gags here and there, but meh. C
