Interesting Episode!
5 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twelfth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons and it's a pretty weird, but satisfying episode. I also find it strange how it's one of the lowest rated episodes in the series so far. I found it to be funny and quite action-packed. The train sequence in the end was very good. We also are treated to a wonderful cameo by Leonard Nimoy. Let those Star Wars versus Star Trek jokes begin!

In this episode, "Marge vs. the Monorail," Mr. Burns is forced to donate three million dollars to Springfield and it was decided, thanks to a slick-speaking salesman, that the money will go toward a monorail system, despite protests from Marge. Homer decides to sign up to be the conductor. Eventually Marge learns that this monorail system is not for real and it is a faulty design only used to suck up money.

Overall, this is a really solid episode and one that involves all of Springfield in more of a joint effort. I keep forgetting that these episodes are written by the hilarious Conan O'Brien, so no wonder why we keep getting quality episode after quality episode this season. I rate this episode 9/10.
