Enjoyable Episode, albeit a Weaker moment for the Eight Season,

8/10

The Old Man and the Lisa is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and plenty of very funny scenes. It's enjoyable, it was certainly nice to see one focusing on Lisa and Mr. Burns, something the show had never done until now, it's fun to have them interacting to each other, as they are very different characters with extremely different objectives, this is shown quite well and they made a great, unlikely duo. I felt the episode should have had Lenny taking control over the Power Plant as a side story, it is shown very briefly and mentioned throughout, but I would have liked to have seen Lenny ruling the Plant and going made with power, it would have really helped the episode to have another story that ties in to it. There are many funny moments, seeing Mr. Burns trying to live a life of an average elderly man had me in stitches, particularly the ketchup scene, and Homer's reaction at the end was certainly the highlight, terrific parts that we have all come to expect from this highly entertaining series. It may not be the highlight of the eight season, but the Old Man and Lisa is still a fun and enjoyable episode.

After Burns loses his entire fortune, he seeks Lisa's help in order to get it back, which she uses as an opportunity to help the environment.
