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

She Used To Be My Girl

Poking a dead raccoon is not research

Couch gag: The family all have Moe’s face

Director: Matthew Nastuk

Guest voice:
Kim Cattrall as Chloe Talbot

Synopsis: A high school friend of Marge’s returns to Springfield as a glamorous journalist who inspires Lisa but causes Marge to feel envy.

Discussion: Hands up if you’ve been to a school reunion (or just Facebook stalking old friends) and been a tiny bit jealous that someone is doing something cool and is successful? (Me? Nah, never…)

Marge’s old school buddy is back in town covering a sex scandal involving the Major. Sorry, Mayor. Lisa finds Chloe beautiful and inspiring, leaving Marge to feel envious that not only did her friend become successful, she’s also a huge role model to Lisa. Let’s face it, Lisa benefits from different female role models in her life.

Anyhoo, this episode is OK. Barney’s rescue in a helicopter is similar to the time he rescued Bart and Lisa from Mt Springfield when a wildfire was burning out of control… Lisa having a strong female role model, well, that’s happened a lot before. Kim Cattrall is fabulous as Chloe (I didn’t recognise the voice until the theme from Sex and the City played after she proposes pity sex to Barney). To me, the ep just feels a little contrived, I don’t entirely buy it. Maybe it’s the recurring themes, maybe it’s a female character that’s completely opposite to Marge and frankly, not very interesting despite what others think of her.
