Aw, being a clown sucks. You get kicked by kids, bit by dogs, and admired by the elderly. Who am I clowning? I have no business being a clown! I’m leaving the clowning business to all the other clowns in the clowning business.— Homer
All the submitted reviews for 'Tis the Fifteenth Season (FABF02). All ratings are out of 5. The average rating for this episode is 3.92.
This sounded like yet another "Homer changes his ways" episode, which at first I thought was bad. But then I remembered the other similar episodes: Hungry, Hungry Homer, Jaws Wired Shut, I Am Furious Yellow... and they all turned out great. This episode was average - not too great, but not too bad.
It's always nice to see Homer doing nice things, but revolving it around Christmas didn't work too well this time. Christmas episodes are another thing that have been done too much. Most of the characters were well-placed in this episode, the only exception that springs to mind is Ned Flanders. Well, not so much badly-placed, more badly-characterized - he just didn't seem himself.
Everything else, though, was good - Homer's selfish gift for himself, the Christmas specials on TV, Homer giving the homeless his clothes, and the occasional appearances of Santa's Little Helper throughout the episode (he seemed to keep popping up at all the right moments). For a Christmas episode, this was pretty solid.
I think this episode was the best holiday (minus THOH of course episode yet.
