    R+R Blood Feud

    It had its moments, but not a great episode. 6/10

    "Hello my name is Mr. Burns"...the best part of the ep.

    I agree, I think that's when the show started to get good. Not the best episode, but def on the up side of the halfway mark. 4/5.

    Boring. 2/5. I'm not a big fan of season 2 episodes but some of them can be good - but this one just stood out to me as a crappy episode.

    4/5. Very good episode. Not my fave of Season Two (that still goes to "Three Men and a Comic Book"), but definitely one of the funnest of the season, and the best Mr. Burns episode of that season, too.

    9/10. Definitely not crap or boring. Here, the characters are at their most human, and every situation COULD happen in real life. A far cry from the wackiness of later seasons.

    7/10 I like the ending. When they get the giant sculpted head and how Mr. Burns feels so proud of himself.

    A good episode, though I wonder what people would think of the strange ending if this episode had aired today.

    Funniest moment:
    "Hello, my name is Mr. Burns. I believe you have a letter for me."
    "Ok, Mr. Burns, what's your first name?"
    "I...don't know!"

    Honestly, I have nothing but love in my heart for this episode; I can't remember anything cringeworthy about it at all, and there were so many good lines, I can't put them all down. (And I love Mr. Burns episodes.) Then again, after prolonged exsposure to the modern seasons, one begins to see the classic season through rose-colored glasses.

    10/10...and I don't just hand those out.

    9/10; a good reason why Season 2 isn't the undeveloped boredom some people claim it is.

    Mr. Burns is probably the most fascinating secondary character ever created for OFF and any episode from the classic Era featuring him in am major role is poised for greatness (usual exceptions aside) . He is in great form in this episode, with just the right amount of cold-heartedness ("I just robbed a man of his livelyhood yet I feel srangely empty.Tell you what Smithers, have him beaten to a pulp.) and the right amount of cynicism (his reaction at being asked with whom he had slept with) combined with just the right number of old-timey jokes. This episode is first of the genre of "just a bunch of stuff that happens" which it itself acknowledges very cleverly by mocking the notion of tv characters learning a lesson at the end of the episode.

    This episode also features great performances by OFF and Smithers. Not only possessing the extremly charming witty dialogue-based humour of season 2, it has lots of stand-out gags (Homer's rendition of a standard letter, Homer's version of a bible story featuring Hercules who was showered with riches by a lion,the nuclear warning sign at the beginning). It has extremely hilarious quotable lines like : "My name is Mr. Burns. I believe you have a letter for me", "Oh, hey there, Mr. uh... Brown-Shoes! How about that ..local sports team!" "Marge, you're my wife, I love you very much, but you're living in a world of make-believe! With flowers and bellsand leprechauns and magic frogs with funny little hats" . Also, this episode pretty much defined the role Smithers would continue to play in the later years : very caring about Burns, always ready to help Burns in endeavors with a substantial amount of toadying yet often acting as the only person who can serve as Burns's conscience.

    Credit must also be given to the excellent animation direction in this by the great David Silverman. There is fabolous facial acting done by the characters : especially on Burns. The direction in the scenes taking place in his mansion and his office are fantastic with many subtle little effects such as extremely low lighting, dark colouring, slanted camera angles, slightly sinister background music truly making those places seem menacing. This episode set the tone for how Burn's mansion and office were to be animated : at least till Who Shot Mr. Burns Pt. 1. Once again, the gradual changing expression of Burn's face, from happy to furious as he reads Homer's letter is flawlessly done. Just like Sideshow Bob, Burns appears extremely menacing when he's shot from a very low angle. The scene where Burns' yells out "Judas!" at Smithers is one of the finest directions of a scene I have ever seen.
    It's a bit like having sex with a jellyfish: once might an interesting experiment, twice would be perversion!
    after I told him my name, he beat seven shades out of me and left me in a dumpster with a bar of soap shoved in my mouth and a brush shoved in where the sun doesn't shine

    I absolutely love Homer's characterisation and quotes in this episode: Homer trying to act like Burns,talking what kind of letters people write etc. Pretty good episode overall,but I didn't like the ending. 8.5/10 > 8/10 for the poll.

    One of the first laugh-a-minute episodes, and I love the ending...self-conscious moments that try to excuse the show aren't necessarily bad. A-

    I really do not like this episode

    I find it dull beyond belief. I do think there are some nice moments here and there, mainly with Homer's letter, the mailman, and the obvious bank scene, but I can never get interested in this episode. The ending leaves me unsatisfied as well.

    I don't think the fact that it's realistic redeems the fact that it's quite boring, in my oinion.

    This episode is not 10/10, but I think the episode style is close to Season 3~4-esque. The plot was actually better than I thought before I watched it. Some gags resembled the hilarity of Season 4 (Homer dreaming of choking Mr. Burns, Homer trying to disguise himself as Mr. Burns etc.). It's very hilarious in some ways.

    Seriously, what if this episode came out in Season 3 or 4? An instant classic, in my opinion. This is how Season 2 is undervalued in some ways.

    9/10

    Conclusion: There is no moral in this episode.
    calmer than you are

    9/10. Like most season 2 episodes, it has very solid characterizations, a good story (even if it is alittle disjointed for the era), and several good jokes. Plus, it has that great season 2 charm.

    Only complaint is that the ending wasn't quite satisfying.

    You're kidding? The whole bit with the mail lady was one of the funniest parts in season 2... 4.5/5

    8/10, great episode.
    Kids, let me tell you about another so-called ``wicked'' guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas. He didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was...
    I forget. But the point is... I forget that, too. Marge, you know what I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?

    -- Homer's parable of the guy in the blue car, ``Homer the Heretic''

    Ralph: I Won! I Won!
    Principal Skinner: No Ralph this means you're failing English
    Ralph: Me fail English? That's unpossible.

    Voted 9/10 but I should have voted 10/10. So many hilarious moments. I love the gag with the guy in the lift.
