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

Enjoyable but a Weaker Moment this Season,
5 December 2014 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Opposites A-Frack is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and lots of very funny scenes.This is certainly the weakest episode of the twenty sixth season so far,but it still has some good moments.I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Jane Fonda guest star,I'm pretty sure she has never done voice work previously and and was given a good character.My favourite moment of the episode was certainly the dialogue between Burns and Fonda's character at the end,it had me in stitches as it genuinely reminded me of several old couples that I know.Not as good as some other episodes we've this season,but Opposites A-Frack is still a fun Simpsons.

Mr. Burns ends up falling in love with a woman who is sent to stop his fracking operation.
