    I know a lot of you think this episode is weak, but I enjoy it. How can you not like a Burns who is “even more evil” when he tries to do something good, or Barney licking the recycled booze bottle windows? Or Homer suffering four simultaneous heart attacks upon seeing Lisa reject the check… and that was before he learned the true amount.

    Oh, it’s George Takei’s birthday today, too.

    i actually enjoyed this too. while it didn’t portray Burns as a cartoonishly-evil villain (would the old Burns have offered Lisa a 10% commission?), it didn’t portray him as a completely stupid old man. I liked how he turned his fortunes around step-by-step, and I liked the irony of Lisa’s attempts to do good turning into something horrible (a similar thing happened in Lisa the Tree-Hugger (S12))

      Lisa the Tree Hugger was pretty bad, as I recall (I think I only saw it once) but I did like the line that went something like “I’m a level 5 vegan, I don’t eat anything that casts a shadow.”

      The rest, including the song at the end, was awful.
