We begin the same way all great episodes begin: One scene that leads to a flashback that'll eventually explain this scene (I'm sorry it's not this episode, CSI: Miami has forever ruined this story type for me). We see two white guards and a black guard that couldn't possibly be Homer, Lenny and Carl (Sorry but it's so obviously them, you don't even need cliffnotes to figure this out).
|Ok Mr. Burns, time for "The Room"|
|Ok Bart, time for our contractually obligated B plot. What say you about an ant farm?|
|My first order as boss: Dress code includes pink shirts|
|See, this is what happens when you eat at Arby's|
|You're in my way, sir... I said, you're standing in my spot, sir.|
Final Judgment: This episode's pretty good but there were points where I just smacked my head. The ant subplot was completely worthless and couldn't do it's role of padding the episode out. They probably could have used the time to further explore Smithers' role as boss at the plant.
Final Grade: 7.3/10 It's worth a re-watch at least once
