  • Flippen Sweet episode..... must see for anyone!!!!!

    Deciding he could use more money, Flanders rents out his spare room to two college girls. The girls go behind Ned to operate their live sexy slumber party webcam in the room. When Bart and Milhouse stumble upon the site, Homer makes sure everybody in Springfield knows about it. Marge finds out and makes Homer break the news to Ned. Flanders finds out he's the laughing stock of the town and moves to Humbleton, PA where his figurine collection is made. A new neighbor, Clay Roberts, moves into Ned's home and is more obnoxious than Homer. Ned is enjoying his time in Humbeton until they tell him he must remove his moustache to keep his job. Ned refuses to do so and the town frowns upon his decision. Unable to deal with his new neighbor Clay, Homer begs Ned and his family to return to Springfield. And Ned couldn't be happier to do so.moreless
  • Awesome episode!

    This is just as great as 'Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Three Times'. Lisa also won 4 free tickets to some theater. Man, you know, Ned Flounders was funny. He also let two ladies move in with him. But all they did was have a sexy slumber party in Ned's house. When he found out what was going on, he kicked the two ladies out of his home. Ned and his two sons move to Humbleton, Pennsylvania. Homer and Bart even watched the porno on the computer. They even had a party at the end of the episode to celebrate Ned Flounders's return to Springfield.moreless
  • Ned finally snaps (again)

    This episode is terrific especially Homer embarassing Ned behind his back that Flanders was renting a room to 2 hot females that just happened to be making a porn site in Ned's spare room. The thought of Homer hating a neighbour even more than Ned diddly Flanders (You never know, it could be his middle name!) is a very strange moment but hopefully he goes back to hating Flanders as a neighbour as soon as he moves back. The episode wasn't the best season 16 episode but it did have very memorable scenes throughout and can definitely be classed as a memorable episode.moreless
  • Homer Away From Homer is an episode where Ned moves away because he's had enough of Homer abusing him all the time.

    To be honest, I liked this episode, and I enjoyed watching it. It had some funny moments and of course, an obvious storyline that we knew would happen in some episode. Believe me, this is a fun episode. The thing I have to say though is that gets a little boring at some points. Don;t get me wrong, I like this episode. But near the middle it gets a bit boring. But there are some great scenes and some great parts in it. It deserves 7.5. What I liked was that everyone in Humbletown hated Ned's moustache and told him to shave it off, but Ned refuses and everyone is shocked. And also I liked that guy who moved in who was really tough and was even worse than Ned Flanders. It has a great storyline idea, but could of been better and funnier.moreless
