Ice Cream of Margie (With The Light Blue Hair) Review

Homer got fired. We've seen it before, we're going to see it again. It's always, however, a wonderful plot device. On Wikipedia there is a list of Homer Simpson's jobs and I have to say, that is one impressive resume.

Anyway, the basis of this episode is that Homer gets fired from the powerplant during a game of chair hockey. I thought that was well put together (the whole joke about why dad is so tired and his voice is hoarse). He goes and gets some icecream and the icecream man dies. After buying the truck off of the icecream man's wife, Homer becomes the icecream man. Otto "pimps" his ride and then, for some reason, the most unexpected clip of Homer getting dressed up comes on. Really, if you didn't see it, you missed what I think is something classic.

Marge, on the other hand, picks up stick sculpture making because she wants to be remebered. Homer eventually wrecks her show when she becomes famous and breaks the icecream truck.

One of the most memorable parts of the show was when Marge refused to come out of her room because she was angry. Homer eventually slides pictures of himself being sad to show her via under the door. One of them is happy, and Homer explains it's because the cat fell down the stairs and he thought it was funny... then he has a picture of the cat.

All in all, the show showed alot and the jokes were constant and funny. They actually had me smiling and laughing with no gaps, even during commercials. Definately a step in the right direction. Maybe it's because the movie's almost done. (If you want to see the trailer you can go to Homer Cubed Videos on the right hand side of the screen).

-RATING: 8.0-
