Storyline

Marge's sisters stay with the Simpsons whilst their apartment is being fumigated but their smoking almost causes an explosion when it is discovered that the house is built over a shale deposit. Burns starts a fracking operation and Lisa calls in Assemblywoman Maxine Lombard to stop him though the two fall in love and the greedy occupants of Evergreen Terrace are persuaded to sell the rights to dig under their houses. Only Marge holds out, causing a rift with Homer whilst Burns dumps Maxine , who retaliates by trying to demolish his mansion to make way for liberal institutions. An enraged Burns orders Homer to commence fracking - but Marge, as ever, makes him see sense. Written by don @ minifie-1

A definite no to fracking.
23 January 2021 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Assemblywoman Maxine Lombard is called in by Lisa, when she learns that Mr Burns is fracking in the neighborhood.

'fracking is great, so long as it's on other people's neighbourhoods.' H Simpson 2014.

I enjoyed this one, I liked the flow of the episode, the jokes, and I loved hearing the voice of Jane Fonda.

Is it a classic, no, but it would have been hugely relevant for 2014, a time where fracking seemed to be public enemy number One, as someone who loves very close to an area affected by fracking, I know only too well the fears associates with it.

It was funny seeking Me Burns fall in love, was also good to seem Homer play the hero.

Enjoyable, 7/10.
