  • As Bart is accused of a big time prank, Mr. Burns decides to act out a childhood fantasy.

    The writers of this episode certainly did see the movie "Kick Ass". Despite that, "Dark Knight Court" was actually quite good. There were some geniune laughs here. The best being Fruit Bat Man's less than perfect exit from the Kwik-E-Mart. Former Attorney General Janet Reno was very good in her guest apearance. She had some well written dialogue. The episode is not without its flaws however. It could not have been more obvious that Bart was innocent, however the investigation which uncovers the actual perpetrator was well done and makes up for this flaw to a certain degree. The scene of the guilty party's confession is very well done also. Definitely an episode worth your time. It has more than its fair share of laughs.
