Storyline

A three-eyed fish is caught in the Springfield River downstream from the nuclear plant, leading to a government safety inspection. When Mr. Burns is told that the plant will be shut down, he gets drunk in his car with Homer. Homer remarks that if Burns were governor, he could make new laws to keep the plant open. Burns seizes on this remark and announces his candidacy. Afraid for his job, Homer pushes his family to campaign for Burns, but Marge is a staunch supporter of the incumbent, Mary Bailey. On the night before the election, Burns dines at the Simpson home as a publicity stunt. Written by crouchbk

A Simpsons Political Satire!
28 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now as I have duly pointed out, I am not one for politics. This episode is very political-centered and that's why I didn't like it as much and it's an episode that doesn't stand out much. But that being said, I still liked it and found it rather amusing. It's a decent political satire with the only intention of making fun of politics.

In this episode, "two cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish," Bart catches a three-eyed fish in the river that's being polluted by the nuclear power plant. When Mr. Burns is told about all of this, he runs for mayor thanks to the advice from Homer.

Overall, this is a solid episode that's worth a watch. It has several good jokes but this is not my most favorite episode. I rate this episode 8/10.
