Homer and Marge working together at the Power Plant? Blame it on Tibor
5 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is about the Simpson family house having foundation problems. Marge gets a job at the Power Plant to pay for the necessary repairs. Things get complicated when Mr. Burns becomes obsessed with her.

There are a lot of things to like about this episode. Both Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz make an appearance. Tom Jones is one of the greatest musical guest stars they've had on the show, and was supposedly a joy to work with. This is also a great Mr. Burns episode. Groundskeeper Willie has a very funny part as well.

Season 4 has great episode after great episode. This is certainly one of them.
