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


The President Wore Pearls

couch gag: The Simpsons, on a Polaroid film, are placed on the couch

Director: Mike B. Anderson

Guest voice:
Michael Moore as himself

Synopsis: Lisa is elected student body president, but is entwined in corruption and deceit.

Discussion; In this parody of a famous musical about the life of Eva Peron, Lisa is elected school President but her popularity wanes when she’s tricked into signing away the music, art and gym departments as a cost cutting measure for Skinner.

It’s not an amazing episode despite the outstanding musical numbers. Lisa’s makeover seems pointless (yeah, I get the whole Evita thing) and her calling a student strike is ludicrous. You know what I think would have made the episode a whole lot better? Having everything in song, just like Evita. It worked well for an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I think an-all (new) singing & dancing Simpsons would also be good.

In any case, that’s not what happened. We’re given a Lisa-centric episode (which we’ve not had in a while) and she’s standing up for morals that we’ve seen before and done better (who remembers her protest song from season 4?)

It’s an OK episode purely for novelty value, but offers little else.
