  • This was a great episode, until it got to the very end.

    Overall, this was another enjoyable episode, although I didn't like it quite as much as "Stealing First Base." I thought both the main and subplots were pretty good, and it had some pretty funny gags, like Burns jumping on the dandy jumper and the warden being obsessed with helium. I also laughed at the part where Homer started dancing because he thought Patti (sp?) and Selma had died and when Santa's Little helper ate Annie, Lisa's very last ant. The weather abruptly changing as Burns told his story was also funny, even though I thought the part where Simthers's nose fell off was kind of gross and unnecessary. The main thing that dropped the score, however, was the very end. It was confusing to me. I did not get that very last joke about Burns's cellmate asking the other guy if he had heard of Jesus. Other than that, though, this was a great episode all in all, and I hope the next new episodes, if I am able to see them, will be even better! Marebear2009, out!
