Great article. I’ve never considered that this episode was meant to be told from the perspective of a Bond villain’s henchman but now that you’ve pointed it out it makes so much sense. Obviously there are plenty of instances where the episode basically tells you that Scorpio is a Bond villain, but I’ve never realized that Homer is in fact a henchman himself. Homer never seemed to realize it during the episode and I didn’t either. Looks like all of those hours of watching the Simpsons have caught up to me and I’ve finally fulfilled my destiny of turning into Homer Simpson.
