    I think that most early episodes are pretty good, and this is no exception. Any episode centered around Homer is going to be funny.

    I beg to differ.

    I dint get this until I heard the commentary, but apparently the joke is that Homer's suicide note tells the kids to never give up.
    For it's season it's near the bottom, for the series it's in the bottom 30%.
    There's a thin line between clever and stupid...

    I liked it. I didn't have a problem with Homer trying to kill himself either infact one of my favourite scenes in this one is when Homer smashes Bart's piggy bank to get some money, feels guilty but then makes sure it'd only a few measly cents. The ending's nice too when Homer gives his heart-felt speech to the crowd. 5/5

    I feel that this is one of those episodes where people are influenced too much by other reviews, and that it's 'cool' to hate. I really fail to see why some see it as a 'F' episode. The opening sequence alone up until Homer gets fired propels the episode way above the 'F' mark. the hilarious interchanges between Bart, Mrs K, Otto, and Sherri and Terri in the bus have me in stitches every time. And Smilin' Joe Fission!

    Admittedly the episode does dip quite a bit when Homer wants to contemplate suicide, but it's still not nearly as bad as 'Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder'. It's a little bumpy after this too, but I think there are more than enough good moments to keep it afloat. I'd give it a B-.

    A tribute to Bart Simpson

    You think THAT's bad? What about that time when I was turned into a Tetris block?

    5/5 Excellent episode in my mind. More down to earth than the latest ones.

    That rat guy in the court scene's probably the weirdest background character of all time.
    4/5

    2/5-Season 1's Weakest-but a little what you'd expect. The Simpsons deserves better than this loada crap.

    I just re-watched this episode tonight, and while I'll stick with the rating I gave it a while back (3/5), it is a pretty good episode. There are some really strong gags, which is rare for season 1. The plot, however, is pretty stupid. 3.5/5 rounded down because of the poor resolution of the suicide scene.

    I didn't like how he was so desperate for money he cracked open his own son's piggy bank.

    He didn't either.

    Hence the suicide thing.

    I think I respect it a lot more than I like it. The depression and the attempted suicide does feel genuine and you have to admire their guts for doing something so dark in their third episode. I think it deserves about a C+.
    Top Ten:
    1. Homer: Badman
    2. Homer the Great
    3. Mother Simpson
    4. Bart Sells His Soul
    5. Last Exit to Springfield
    6. Who Shot Mr. Burns (part one and two)
    7. Rosebud
    8. Scenes from the Class Struggle in Springfield
    9. El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer
    10. Homer's Enemy

    2/5, the weakest episode in Season 1, Homer trying to commit suicide was an awful storyline.
    Kids, let me tell you about another so-called ``wicked'' guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas. He didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was...
    I forget. But the point is... I forget that, too. Marge, you know what I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?

    Ralph: Me fail English? That's unpossible.

    Not a great one, but forgivable considering how early on it was.

    [it's one of the few times that Homer has gone out of his way to do good]

    3/5 Meh. I just watched it for the first time last week, wasn't overly impressed. It's weird, I've been watching the show for years now on syndicated tv on several different channels, and I've never once seen this episode. I guess that's syndicated tv for you...

    Didn't induce a single laugh, has absolutely appalling animation, a stupid plot, off characterisation, and a way-too-sudden and unbelievable ending. F

    as many other episodes from season 1, i miss in this episode some good gags
    and the humour i like about the show in the following seasons.
    The story is a little bit dull and could have needed some more gags.
    So it's only an average episode for me.

    Things wrong with this episode:

    Animation
    Black Smithers
    Homers suicide for almost no freakin reason
    pointless plot

    One of my least favorites of all time 1/5
