    Season 2 was a strong season for The Simpsons and Brush with Greatness was an average episode. The plot itself was good and a good idea to feature Burns and Marge instead of typically Burns and Homer ,what worked best was Marge trying to find Burns' inner beauty but noticing there wasn't any. Characterizations were pretty spot on in this episode Burns being an angry horrible old man worked for the plot ,Marge remained caring and Homer was nice to see as he tried to help Marge at the end of the episode realize she is talented whilst watching his weight in a good sub plot. Smithers was good in the episode showing loyalty and sticking to his character but other than that nothing else great the mt Splashmore scene was not needed and wasted time it was lacking in the jokes department and didn't have much to praise.
