This episode has definitely made history with me and many others. It has a good, serious plot mixed in with classic Simpsons humour, making this an instant classic already! Mr. Burns probably deserved to be shot for all the things he did, even though I think he's a superb character who gives me at least one laugh in every episode he appears in. It had everyone guessing who did it? Homer? Smithers? But surprisingly it wasn't either of them. Overall, this was a well-thought out episode which is one which has put this show down in history!
