1.3 Homers Odyssey
At this point in "The Simpsons", we were just being introduced to the characters and characteristics. But out of the thirteen episodes in season one, this is the worst one. I found most of this episode particularly boring,but like all Simpsons episodes it had its good moments. We see Barts first prank call to Moes Tavern, his name:I.P. Freely. Did you notice in this episode that Waylon Smithers is black? We get a good look at Homers job and his boss Mr.Burns and his assistant Smithers. Mr.Burns is introduced as a rich man and offers Homer a job as safety inspector at Sector 7G. Mr.Burns uses "excellent" for the first time.
Not one of my favorite episodes, but contributes to the show.
