Homer Day

Eight episodes are showing back-to-back of the Simpsons...

For anyone who won’t be spending the day glued to the sporting action over in Rio, your best bet is to spend the day glued to Channel 4, who this afternoon are celebrating the greatest moments of everyone’s favourite yellow dad. Eight episodes are showing back-to-back, beginning with 1992’s Colonel Homer, in which the patriarch inexplicably becomes the manager of a beautiful country-and-western singer. Plenty of guest stars crop up, including Mel Gibson, Danny DeVito, Aerosmith and Chris Martin, as Homer writes a film, designs a car and wins the lottery.
