I found this episode, like all Burns episodes, very enjoyable - among classics such as Last Exit To Springfield, Burns' Heir, and Homer Vs. Dignity.

The episode starts with the visit to Chinatown. This was very funny, especially the Chinese dragon thing (it was a real animal). The episode quickly gets into the main storyline, that is, Burns reading his fortune (as written by Homer) and then dating a young woman. The Smithers gay references are the best bits here - after Burns reads his fortune, Smithers says: "We're the only two people here, sir." then his unenthusiastic "whoopee" at Burns' suggestion to go womanizing.

Anyway, Burns finds his true love and they go on dates. More great jokes included Homer carrying Burns carrying Gloria to the bedroom, and the aphrodisiac.

The only thing I didn't like was the ending. Homer talking about someone's wiener was just sick, and the family walking into the sunset with Burns was a bit strange. I think the writers were trying to make a 'nice' ending, free from wackiness, but it didn't seem right to me.


Good Episode
