This the funniest modern The Simpsons episode ever!
28 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode's title gives away that its 2 plots spoof either Dark Knight or Night Court. While I don't remember too much of the Night Court plot, there was still a few good jokes that I remember. I definitely found the Dark Knight plot to be a lot better and it was also even funnier than the Night Court plot. It was also a really good episode because Bart and Mr. Burns had more to their character in this episode than just being a prankster or cruel old boss man. After Mr. Burns regrets turning down Lisa's help, he eventually steps in to defeat the real culprit who framed Bart, but I won't spoil who it is. It was also really cool to see Mr. Burns want to be a hero for once instead of being the villain all the time, and he even surprised himself by doing this thing.
