Here are the best Flanders episodes of The Simpsons. Springfield installs surveillance cameras like London after a bomb scare, and Flanders ends up in charge of it. In a rare moment of corruption, Flanders becomes Big Brother. This episode became even more prescient after the Edward Snowden leaks. A timely episode due to the rash of school bullying incidents in real life, Springfield passes an anti-bullying law and Homer gets sent to a sensitivity course.
When Homer actually reforms, Ned refuses to forgive him. It takes Homer actually practicing true repentance, kneeling biblical style on the Flanders lawn, for Ned to accept his apology. This is the classic episode in which Flanders opened The Leftorium in the mall, a store devoted to left-handed accessories for left handed people.

This is shades of the new ultra-religious Ned Flanders, browbeating and making subtle digs at non-believers rather than turn the other cheek. I could see it being a cute little bit of him feeling uncomfortable with someone so experienced, but as the climax of the episode? I remember wishing that episode had dealt with its premise better, but at least it went somewhere and the relationship itself made a little more sense. Why gives a flying fuck? Three items of note: — The episode kicks off with Bart on an ADD-level spree of chaos in the gymnasium, which ends in Edna grabbing and slapping him.
This shot is kind of weird in itself; she slaps him, the kids running around making noise immediately stop and stare at them. Edna acknowledges this, and then slaps him again. Her first strike was impulsive without thinking, but that second slap feels like an outlet of her years of repressed rage and frustration at her greatest challenge student.
