Trivia

Mr. Burns collapses on a sundial, pointing his arms at S and W - which to his eyes look like M and S - and identifying the initials of the shooter. This resulted in several characters having their names permanently expanded solely for the sake of red herrings: Seymour Skinner's name was revealed as M. Seymour Skinner - this is written on a diploma behind his head in one scene - while Moe the Bartender became Moe Szyslak, and Sideshow Mel's name was revealed as Melvin van Horn, presumably to eliminate him, though it could still have been interpreted as not MS, but SM - Sideshow Mel.

Lisa: I don't think anyone in this family is capable of attempted murder.
Grampa: You never know what you're capable of. I never thought I could shoot down a german plane. But last year I proved myself wrong.

Homer Simpson, #1 suspect
14 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

With a chalkboard gag like this: "I will not complain about the solution when I hear it"

you know what kinda silliness you're in for. One thing's for sure, the answer to who shot Mr. Burns is the least likely citizen; and it's just that kind of subversion that such a resolution needs. And what makes it so entertaining (and the superior half of a two-parter) is that it's played to full absurdity. It's probably not surprising that Lisa is one step ahead of the police in this case, and Homoer certainly doesn't dispel suspicions when the evidence points to him.

Right from the start, Pt. II is tongue-in-cheek with an opening shower scene gag from "Dallas" (another famous episode I haven't seen and even I know about it; it wasn't lost on the writers that they'd touched a cultural nerve with this). The payoff is ridiculous enough to actually work, and that goes for the whole episode.

9/10
