2. Reception

Tony Sokol from Den of Geek thought the references to British spy movies were not strong enough. Sokol also thought the humor was not strong, but he called the episode clever. Jesse Bereta from Bubbleblabber thought that the episode was not too exciting, saying "it is more about convincing Homer that his father is a spy more than any actual spy work." However, Bereta said "it was a fun episode that tried something different."
