A great clip show
4 January 2008 | by iksnyzcarSee all my reviews

Even though this is not an official episode of the Simpsons it is the best clip show they have. If I remember this correctly this aired right before the season seven premiere(and now can be found on disc four of The Sipsons Season Six Box set in the extras). The whole show is basically America's Most Wanted based on the "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" episode. There are a lot of clips showing why people would want to shoot him. There are also criminologist giving motives for all the characters. The best of all is the Las Vegas bookmaker giving odds for everyone(from the looks of it, it looks like that part was filmed at the Stardust in Vegas). Overall it is a great time waster.
