I watch, and blog, and watch and blog and watch. It's the Simpsons every day!


Little Girl in the Big Ten

couch gag: The Simpsons walk in to find Squeaky-Voiced Teen kissing a girl on the couch

Director: Lauren MacMullen

Guest voice:
Robert Pinsky as himself

Synopsis: Lisa finds intellectual equals at an gymnastics class, while Bart is encapsulated in a bubble as he’s contagious from a Chinese mosquito bite.

Discussion: Lisa is failing gym and wants to hang out with the intelligentsia. What else is new? Meanwhile, Bart has panda virus and is highly contagious, so he’s put into a bubble where he can be of no threat to anyone.

Well, where do we start? Above all else, this episode lacks zest. It’s familiar themes rebranded into something “new” (Lisa hasn’t hung around college campuses before). The subplot of Bart in a bubble is an OK one, but not enough had it been decided to carry the ep on its own. I don’t feel like either plot has enough substance to carry a whole episode.

If it weren’t for Homer’s brilliant home karaoke of ‘Tubthumping’, this episode would be instantly forgettable. At best, it’s mediocre with a last-minute excuse to shove Lisa into a chocolate cake. And, while I’m at it, why is Lisa’s hair and dress affected by wind as she’s falling in the bubble?
