“As inexhaustibly original as the animated series that inspired it, the kookily brilliant “Mr. Burns” is the sort of once-in-a-blue-moon show that stays stuck in your brain long after it has chilled you to the bone.”  — The Washington Post

In the first act of Mr. Burns, set immediately after the collapse of the American civilization, survivors attempt to remember their favorite Simpsons episode.
