    I really disliked the idea of Mr Burns having a son. I didn't even believe it. But I guess it doesn´t mind when the episode is as funny and enjoyable as this one. And Larry Burns is a pretty funny character too. Loved the use of "Anyway you want it" by Journey at the end. It's an A-.

    Raher poor by Season 8 standards. Granted it was a funny episode, but the whole thing just didn't really seem to have much of a point to it. Larry Burns was a pretty funny one off character though and it was nice to see how similar he is to Homer and all they have in common. A little bit thin though in that there wasn't even that much direct interaction between Larry and Burns and considering father and son haven't seen each other in 20 years or something you think there would be more communication between them than what was shown. Well anyway its ok. B-/B

    I must admit you got a point there CP. The story was a little silly. But that's what the third act was about. Larry and Homer were trying to get Mr Burns to say that he loved him. Larry wanted to talk and to love him but Mr Burns didn't want it. That was shown clearly at the end.

    Maybe Ive overestimated my "A+" grade. But at the end of the day, it was funny had a fun plot and everyone was in decent character. As for the plot I'll re-watch sometime and still see if I like it. A+ for now though (if anyone cares!)

    It was alright, but inconclusive, basically a storyline purely for one episode, not a continuity. Compared to the rest of Season 8, it wasn't great and could have been much better. B-

    One of the funniest Season 8 episodes. Rodney Dangerfield added a lot, but didn't seem to work for me as the son of Mr. Burns. Because of this, I'm giving it an A- (4/5).
    Bart: "Please don't call our parents!"
    Chief: "I'm afraid I have to for hijinks like these. Hijinks - it's a funny word. Three dotted letters in a row."
    Eddie: "Is it hyphenated?"
    Chief: "It used to be, back in the good old days, you know. Of course, every generation hyphenates the way it wants to. Then there's *NSYNC! What the hell is that? Jump in any time there, Eddie, these are good topics."

    OK well I LOVED this episode -not only do I rate it 5/5 but I consider it a classic. The episode was very well-written and there were so many great one-liners. I liked the character of Larry and found his character development to be very good -in fact I wish we had seen more of him (sadly I know this is no longer possible). Rodney Dangerfield played his character very well and I think he would probably be one of my favorite guest stars. All in all, a great episode

    Larry was a great one time character and really worked well but I do kind kind of agree that it should have revolved more about Burns and Larry than Homer and Larry but it was funny and worked well anyway.B

    i think it's a "fairly good" episode.
    Story is interesting and has some funny moments.
    Larry is ok as one time character, but i'm glad that he's no regular part of the show.

    This was a strong and well written episode, and didn't carry any flaws. Despite the revelation of Burns turning out to be a father, it didn't have that horrible Scully feel to it, like plots similar to those do.

    A:Excellent, a very under-rated 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.

    Not a great episode, but I enjoyed the Rodney Dangerfieldesque one-liners and Homer's verbal shot at Milhouse. I appreciate running gags like that being referenced.

    Top Ten:
    1. "Who Shot Mr. Burns?"
    2. "The Way We Was"
    3. "Summer of 4 Ft. 2"
    4. "Boy Scoutz in the Hood"
    5. "Bart's Comet"
    6. "Sweet Seymour Skinner's Badasssss Song"
    7. "Lisa On Ice"
    8. "Bart Sells His Soul"
    9. "Homer at the Bat"
    10. "Lisa's Pony"


    Uhhh....I'll be back! Pruh-Probably.

    I LOVED Larry Burns. Almost everything he said had me laughing. I wish he could come back, but sadly, he can't. RIP Rodney Dangerfield

    Pretty funny, but other aspects made me like it less. One of the weaker season 8 episodes IMO. C+ (3/5)
