Storyline

Marge is responsible for getting Jack Crowley,a prisoner with artistic talent, parole and a job at the school,painting a vast and beautiful mural. However Skinner dislikes it and orders a twee replacement. Both the new mural and Skinner's car are consequently torched and Marge is dismayed to think that Jack let her down. Homer experiences a similar lack of success when he tries to market a trash can as a cure for back pains. Written by don @ minifie-1

Eh, it doesn't go anywhere and the plot is inscrutable, but Michael Keaton is a talented actor and this episode has my favorite Simpsons joke:

"You kidding? Look! He painted a unicorn in space. I ask you -- what's it breathing?"

"Air?"

"Ain't no air in space!"

"There's an air in space museum!"

When it comes to season 12+, you take what you can get. And the best moments here are amazing. You can really sense the Swartzwelder in this script -- plenty of bizarre on-liners, decent pacing and a plot so absurd you'd think the time machine did it. And in between the good lines you get some pretty bad readings and some moments so dull they nearly stall the episode.
