"No Going Through The Window For Us."

Mountain of Madness is one of my three favorite Simpson Episodes ever. When this episode was made it was towards the end of when GREAT simpson episodes were being made. Most of season eight was great and season nine was pretty good but following season nine the show did go considerably downhill.

I love the plot of this episode. Whenever Mr. Burns is included as a central character the Episode for the most part is awesome. Especially when Burns is interacting with Homer. So to have an episode where Burns is trapped in a cabin with Homer following an avalanche is great. They just do not make episodes like this anymore.

Highlights of this film include Homer and Burns continuing to talk and creating more avalanches as well as Homer and Burns imagining what each others army would look like.

Overall a great episode, one of the three best and definitely the best episode of season eight.

"Mountain of Madness" is a wildly psychological episode. It revolves around two men being driven insane from being locked into a cabin.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Burns calls all the nuclear power plant employees, pairing them up and orchestrating a race to the cabin at the top of the mountain. The last one there is supposed to be fired! And so, everyone is paired up and starts climbing. Burns is paired with Homer by dumb luck... which means Homer is on his team and won't have to worry about being fired. Of course, Burns cheats using a snowmobile to quickly reach the cabin. After they do reach the cabin, they make a little too much noise... which creates avalanche after avalanche... trapping Burns and Homer together in the cabin... without any help. Soon, they are both driven rather insane from being out of contact with others. They build a few snowmen in the cabin and dress them up in their clothes... and begin staring at the snowmen, communicating to them out of insanity and hallucinations. Out of paranoia, they both viciously attack each other and ignite the propane tank in the cabin, launching them out of the snow and to relative safety. Well written... in the sense that we explore how man can be driven mad when placed in a life-threatening situation.
