Clever, funny, one of the best of season seven
5 April 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really thought this episode was great. The episode focuses mainly on Mr. Burns, and the way he is portrayed in the episode is hilarious as it is brilliant. Personally, I can't think of anything in this episode I did not like. This episode is one of the more softer episodes and it's easier to watch with a younger audience.

In this episode, Smithers takes a small vacation which leaves Homer to do his job. But Smithers comes to quite a shock when he returns as he soon finds a new and more changed Mr. Burns, thanks to Homer.

If you ever get the chance to watch this episode, do so. It remains as one of my personal faves.
