Eh... 2/5. It just wasn't interesting. There were a couple of good jokes, but the story got boring after the first ten minutes.
A boring episode that went nowhere. D+
I expect a lot of seven letter words beginning with 'J.'
Not as good as it could have been. Not really funny or interesting, and the Flanders subplot confused the hell out of me (they don't like his mustache? What?) The Humble character designs were clever, tho. But yeah, not to my liking.
This episode is fairly typical of the entire season outside of the Future-Drama-Don’t Fear the Roofer-The Heartbroke Kid stretch, solid, somewhat funny, but not that memorable.
The first act was pretty good, there were some solid jokes with the NPR parody, the movie scenes, and the girls moving in. Who would have thought that Flanders was a never-nude? I liked having nothing really bad showing on the internet and everyone getting excited about it reminded me of Homer’s Night Out, only this time it was much funnier. Homer telling everyone was in character, although he was little bit of a jerkass, it wasn’t that bad. The pain gag did go a little over the top. Homer missing Flanders in the second act was better than it would have been had it been done solely at the end of the episode. Coach wasn’t that interesting of a character but it was nice to see Homer having an even more annoying neighbor than himself. B-
I really liked it. The plot was entertaining enough, and there were plenty of big laughs. Finally Jimmy Fallon gets his comeupance! I liked Homer trying to be nice to Coach after learning from Ned's leaving in particular.
2.66/3 rounded up to 3. I gave this episode this grade because it wasn't funny I didn't laugh once Homer letting Bart watch the webcam images in the classic years. Other problems were the return of the Cat Lady and another useless guest star in Jason Bateman.
It was pretty good, I enjoyed it. 4/5

5/5! I thought it was one of the best episodes this season!
Top 2 jokes:
2.Somebody had to take the babysitter home. Then I noticed she was sitting on-her-sweet-can. So I grabbed-her-sweet can. Oh, just thinking about-her-can. I just wish I had-her-sweet-sweet-s-s-sweet can!
1. Homer-Hey you $#@*, you cut me off. $#*@ to you!
Lisa- Dad, that's an ambulance
Homer-Right, honey. Hey ambulance! You think you're so big with your $@#^ *%$# siren. And your letters are on backwards!
Top 3 THOH Qoutes:
3. Selma as Homer runs naked across kitchen-There goes the last lingering thread of my heterosexuality.
2. Delirious Mr. Burns-I was walking through the gas one day!
1. Flanders-Hey, Homer, mind if I chew your ear
(Homer shoots Flanders)
Bart-Dad, you killed the zombie Flanders
Homer-He was a zombie?
Funny episode, I liked the Ned story line and didily-ast is great. Probably the most sexy and racy material on the simpsons ever and Bart was watching it along with Millhouse . Coach was funny but did any one else notice the similarity to Snake, even the same voice. Not as good as the last 5 but some good laugh out loud lines & a solid ending to the season along with Father Son.. 4 of 5
This and "guest star" get the same grade from me but if I had to choose between the two, it would be this one. I enjoy seeing the results of Homer and Ned separated and I thought it was all really sweet. I also enjoyed the Jason Bateman bit quite a lot, that part had me laughing out loud. Although I don't remember the name of the show.
Nothing special, but all right. And for some reason, I particularly liked Dan's reading of the line "It was just too funny." But enough with the Cat Lady already. 3/5.
Decent, but also pretty forgettable. There have already been several epsiodes dealing with a Homer/Ned issue.. and this kind of gets lost in all of them.
And the thing with Ned and the figurine town was weird.
3.75 / 5
4/5. The plot was not that horrible, at least it wasent a spinoff like many others. The jokes we're quite numerous, and the Bush one was classic.
Yeah, the best parts was Ned being to 'wild' for Humble, PA, otherwise...meh. A 2.5/5.Originally Posted by Thrillhouse24
Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.
5/5. Classic. I cannot honestly remember a single thing about this episode that did not appeal to me.
I was saying "Boo-urns."

I thought it was really funny episode, and thought the plot was good, except for the Humble(place), PA. I thought it was just to weird. It would have had a 5/5, but I think they could of made Humbleton funnier.
Nice Little detail: The movie posters were awesome!
I absolutely love Ned Flanders eps. It was good for Homer to see what it would be like for Ned to be out of his life for once, but of course when they had the party for him in the backyard, Homer was easily annoyed with him again with his finger wagging.
I too noticed the similarity with the Coach and Snake. Only the Coach didn't have a mullet.
Rod: "But daddy, I have a girlfriend here."
Ned: "Now you have a pen-pal."
Homer: "I call the big one Bitey."
This episode was the weaker of the night. It had really poor pacing. Only like two things happened to Ned and Homer each after Ned moved. Humbletown scared the heck out of my easily-frightened self. I did, however, enjoy the first act and laughed a bit during that.
This turned out alot better than I expected it to. It was interesting to see how Homer's life without Ned, as aforementioned. The Coach was pretty stereotypical and forgettable. It would've been cool if they used Coach Luggash. Flander's plot wasn't that bad, but it was also a bit weak. They should've made it too perfect for him (which was hinted at at the end.) Still, this was funny. Homer, though a jerkass at times, was hilarious. I loved the ending with the pipe organ. B+
It was a nice one.
"I like my beer cold, my TV loud and my homosexuals flaming."
4/5. I liked it a lot, it had a great plot, a funny one timer and lots of funny lines.
Oh, and because probably a dozen people will ask this if someone doesn't answer it in advance (whereas only a half dozen will if someone does), the song Mr. Largo was playing on the organ was "Freeze Frame" by the J. Geils Band.
