|I can't think of another primetime comedy that appeals to all ages where alcoholism is the punchline. In "Duffless," Marge asks Homer to give up beer (not "deer," beer) for a month after he's arrested while driving drunk. We see Homer attending AA-like meetings (Ned Flanders drank schnapps!) and riding Lisa's bike when his driver's license is revoked. The subplot involving Lisa using Bart as a hamster substitute in her science experiment brings home the rivalry between syblings. This is a well-rounded, hysterical episode, ending with Homer choosing Marge over beer.|
