Quotes

[Smithers is at the police station after confessing to having shot Mr. Burns]
Smithers: And when he planned to steal our sunlight, he crossed that line between everyday villainy and cartoonish super-villainy.
Dr. Colossus: Bah! He was a rank amateur compared to... Dr. Colossus! AH-HA-HA, AH-HA-HA-HAAA...
[Laughing maniacally, he presses a button on his belt, "Colosso-Boots" and the soles of his boots extend at super speed - ramming his head into the ceiling]
Dr. Colossus: OW!
[groans]
Dr. Colossus: When is my lawyer coming?

Homer Simpson, #1 suspect
14 August 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

With a chalkboard gag like this: "I will not complain about the solution when I hear it"

you know what kinda silliness you're in for. One thing's for sure, the answer to who shot Mr. Burns is the least likely citizen; and it's just that kind of subversion that such a resolution needs. And what makes it so entertaining (and the superior half of a two-parter) is that it's played to full absurdity. It's probably not surprising that Lisa is one step ahead of the police in this case, and Homoer certainly doesn't dispel suspicions when the evidence points to him.

Right from the start, Pt. II is tongue-in-cheek with an opening shower scene gag from "Dallas" (another famous episode I haven't seen and even I know about it; it wasn't lost on the writers that they'd touched a cultural nerve with this). The payoff is ridiculous enough to actually work, and that goes for the whole episode.

9/10
