  • homer in a band

    this is the fourth major flashback episode, revealing more about the simpsons' past, in this case when homer was in the band "The B Sharps". it is very well written with great gags including homer sending marge back to get a spare tire and the fake homer that marge made. it always amazes me that the writers can think ahead with the flashback episodes so that they can nearly always do them in the right order with a few exceptions later on in the series (eg/the way we weren't). the writers must have realised that the band flashback wouldn't work if maggie had been born. this is a hilarious episode and also reveals that homer has a musical gift.
