I always love a good episode focusing on Mr. Burns. Unfortunately, this wasn't one of the better ones. I liked Burns getting ragdolled around in the prison, but the rest of it just seemed somewhat off. The Power Plant crew didn't seem to have the funny this week, either.
And the B-plot with Bart, Lisa, and ants didn't work for me either. Although I got a good chuckle out of Bart putting a Pop Tart in the ant farm.
That doesn't change the fact that it results in sub-par episodes cobbled together based on a gimmick instead of three strong individual episodes that might have a chance at being good on their own merits.
