Hilarious and Clever Set Up,
2 December 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Dark Knight Court is a fantastic Simpsons episode with two very good story lines that are well written and packed with the usual Simpsons comedy that makes it so enjoyable.I preferred the Mr Burns as a superhero story,it was hilarious seeing him dressed up in a Batman type suit and thinking he was saving the day,certainly a very memorable moment of the twenty fourth season.Bart's courtroom story certainly wasn't as funny but it was still very well written and enjoyable,and I really liked how they combined both stories at the end.Dark Knight Court is a very funny Simpsons episode that is certainly not forgetful.

While Mr Burns tries to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a superhero,Lisa steps in to defend Bart against a false accusation
