'The Simpsons' Season 21, Episode 17 - 'American History X-cellent' Recap

A pleasant enough episode of 'The Simpsons' made better by the presence of C. Montgomery Burns. Even Smithers upped his game, bringing the funny this week. The usual set-up of nonsense events leading to the real point of the episode involved the factory workers putting on a stage production for Mr. Burns' amusement at his mansion, followed by the boys getting drunk in his wine cellar and wrecking his art gallery.

What followed was an unexpected trip to jail, and a completely random side story involving Lisa, Bart and an ant farm. Oh, and lest we forget, Santa's Little Helper had a huge role to play in this particular bonding experience.

With another reminder of how hip and current 'The Simspons' is, they gave a shout-out to the Stephen King serialized novel (1996), and subsequent film 'The Green Mile' (1999). At first I thought maybe they even got Michael Clark Duncan to portray the role of Mr. Burns' spiritual roommate, but it was Kevin Michael Richardson.
