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


Special Edna

couch gag: The family are deep fried and placed on the couch

Director: Bob Anderson

Guest Voice:
Little Richard as himself

Synopsis: Edna Krabappel is feeling second best to Skinner’s mother in their relationship. Bart nominates her for Teacher of the Year and Skinner has a change of heart, finally putting Edna’s needs in front of his mother’s.

Discussion: We’ll miss you, Mrs K.

Skinner’s focus on his mother is nothing new, and it’s starting to wear on his relationship with Edna. We haven’t seen much development of this relationship for a while, so it’s nice to get back to it. It’s a familiar storyline but that’s OK, it’s played out sweetly and in a different setting. I don’t understand the satirical references to EFCOT/EPCOT Center, but I do get the Exxon rollercoaster.

Anyhoo, the parts with Edna, Bart and Skinner are priceless, but the filler bits involving the World of Tomorrow left me scratching my head. What was that about?

This episode definitely feels like a set up for more exploration of the Skinner/Krabappel relationship, so I guess we’ll wait and see how it plays out (for those of us who haven’t seen much past this season).
