    What I liked- Homer praying for everything and anything, homer's long scream after falling in that little hole, the ending of the episode, homer kicking people out of the church for the AA meeting.



    Not one of the best episodes but it provided some laugh moments which is always nice of course. C+/B- or so because the plot was kind of boring
  • Homer becomes dependent on God

    9.5
    When Flanders wins a half-time money shot during a WNBA game, Homer questions why Ned's life is perfect. He suggests a little prayer now and then, so Homer begins praying for everything and things begin to work his way. When their house's plumbing gets clogged with roots, the family are forced to pay a hefty sum to get it fixed. While walking into church, Homer falls into a ditch and breaks his leg, leading him to sue the church to get money. They are forced to pay $1 million which it doesn't have so Homer is given the church. The family move in to solve their problem, while the church services are moved to Barney's Bowlarama. Reverend Lovejoy leaves Springfield, as the church is turned into a 24-hour party. A storm gathers and a flood takes everybody to the church roof. Lovejoy shows up in time to say a prayer to stop the flood. This was an utterly a hilarious episode enough said. Definately give this episode a watch. Its a master piece

  • This might be my favourite episode of the season!

    I love this episode so much. Humour, great characters and the sheer disrespect of the church caused by Homer's 'prayers' is hilarious. The end where God, Buddha and the Colonel are talking on the cloud is a perfect way to end this episode. It all starts when Flanders wins a half-time money shot during a WNBA game, Homer asks him what the secret to his good fortune is. Ned reveals his secret is hard work, honest living and also a little prayer now and again doesn't hurt either. So he starts abusing the object of prayer and soon takes over the church. The partying at the church gets out of hand; Marge asks Homer if he is afraid of incurring God's wrath. Homer isn't so sure, but then the rainfall begins and Homer is struck by lightning. Soon Springfield has started flooding. When an unruly mob starts to come after Homer, Reverend Lovejoy arrives on the scene asking for forgiveness on behalf of the town. Classic Simpsons.
  • Hilarious episode

    9.3
    this episode is terrific with homer using prayer to get everything such as finding the remote. the fact that he shouts because "he's way the hell up there" is very good reasoning by homer. i love the fact that he continues saying nooooooooooo long after he fell into the hole which wasn't very deep at all was a great gag and homer actually getting the church because of it makes the episode all the more entertaining. Ned Flanders obviously annoyed at the immoral things that homer and the gang at the week-long party were doing was a classic reaction and really tied the episode up well.
  • Pray Anything.

    This is another funny episode. When the basket ball ladies come out. It sat on the peoples laps but when it went onto Moes lap he like it but when he was trying to hug the ball it was Gil and Moe said put the head back on and later asked the ball to marry him it was hillarious.
  • Very good for a newer episode.

    9.5
    I'd have to say this is good for a new episode. Not great, but there was nothing wrong with it, so it gets a good review. I liked the storyline, it seemed quite fresh and original.

    It started well, and in fact got better as the episode progressed. I can't remember any "laugh out loud" moments, but there were many good jokes such as when we heard Homer screaming for ages as he was falling - then we see that he has only fallen a few feet. Also the scene at Barney's Bowlarama was good.

    Flanders was pretty good in this episode. In fact, Homer was funny too, which is rare these days for an episode revolving around him.

    Something I didn't like was the way some things were not explained or turns in the story did not come to anything. For example, when the flood started, Ned took the "Noah's arc" thing with the animals, but then we did not hear of it again. And Reverend Lovejoy seemed to appear out of nowhere, in a helicopter, without any explanation.

    But, overall this episode was good, one I'd readily watch again.
