Fun while it lasts, but very Forgetful,

Monty Can't Buy Me Love is a good Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and some very funny scenes. It's an enjoyable episode as we see Mr. Burns take Homer on a journey, going through fierce extremes to become more popular to the public, Mr. Burns is always a great character to lead an episode, he's likable in the worst possible way, and that's exactly why he's such a beloved Simpsons character. The episode takes too long to get to the main storyline, and that is its biggest flaw, it spends too much time making jokes before it gets to the actual plot, and once we do get to Burns trying to find the Loch Ness Monster, it feels very rushed and thrown together. I felt this episode had potential to develop Mr. Burns more as a character and build on his personality, but sadly it never really takes advantage of that opportunity, Burns remains the same throughout, and any sort of development that is done to his character is completely contradicted at the end. While it's certainly one of the weakest episodes of the tenth season, Monty Can't Buy Me Love still has plenty of good moments.

Mr. Burns attempts to track down the Loch Ness Monster after learning he is not as loved by Springfield residents as he once thought.
