Storyline

After being attacked by crows who peck at his eyes Homer briefly becomes addicted to medical marijuana but manages to kick the habit before Mr. Burns asks for his help in preparing a speech for an important meeting. When Mr. Burns appears to have drowned in his bath Homer works the 'corpse' like a marionette to convince the gathering that Burns is fit and well. The jerking movements revive Burns and disaster is avoided. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

On American TV, this episode was originally rated TV-PG for violence (V). The rating was later changed to TV-14 due to the heavy references to marijuana smoking, along with the violence (Homer getting pecked by crows, a teenage Homer getting bitten in the crotch by a drug dog, Homer bleeding "rainbows" as he shaves himself under the influence, and Mr. Burns bleeding while being used as a marionette).

Goofs

After Mr. Burns comes back to life he makes Smithers slap Homer, then Smithers, then himself. When he slaps himself, he uses his left hand, however Smithers tugs his right hand. See more »

[At Moe's]
Lenny: It's a good thing you stopped smoking the magic grass, Homer. You were getting spaced out.
Carl: Yeah, we were planning an intervention, but I got alcohol poisoning that night.

Los Viajes Misteriosos de Nuestro Jomer
9 January 2009 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

Something happens but soon we will see something else completely different. Here all begins with Marge, Marge and a scarecrow vs. a bunch of crows but soon Homer will "kill" the scarecrow then now he is the leader of the crows. This is very funny stuff, Homer with "his" crows at Moe's tavern, in the bed or in any other place but soon this will change also, the crows attack Homer, his eyes are really bad but some cannabis and…

This episode could have been so much better, really funny when Homer is tripping, the obvious stuff means some good rock and roll songs and we have a very memorable and colorful scene (rainbows!). The other hilarious part happens at the rally pro-medical marijuana, after all this was a good episode. I tuned yesterday on The Simpsons (on National TV) and they showed two episodes, I saw both being the first one Bart to the Future (a really great episode from Season 11, highly re-watchable) and the second one Weekend at Burnsie's. It was the very first time I saw this episode from Season 13 (originally aired on 7 April 2002) and anyway is not a favourite of mine, nothing like that.
