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

Nedliest catch

The Ned-Liest Catch

Director: Chuck Sheetz

Guest Voices:
Joey Kramer as himself
Ken Burns as himself

Synopsis: Ned and Edna start dating, but Ned gets cold feet after learning about Edna’s sexual history.

Discussion: Well well well! I’d heard about this episode but had forgotten it existed. It’s like coming in halfway through the run of Friends without seeing Ross and Rachel “on a break”: so, that’s how it happened.

Bart gets Edna into trouble by pushing her buttons one too many times and she slaps him. On hiatus from her job (is sabbatical the wrong word?) Bart tries to fix the situation, Edna falls out a window and is caught by Ned. The two start dating and Ned finds out about Edna’s uh, history while Bart tries to scare the Flanders kids by telling them about evil stepmothers. The episode ends with Homer and Marge informing viewers that they can vote on what happens to the new couple.

Whoa.

The ep took a while to get going but when it did, it was like a freight train with no intention of slowing down. I like that the viewers had a choice in what happened to Ned and Edna (or, in the style of Brangelina or Bennifer… Nedna) and I like that two completely opposite people found that they were able to date despite not having anything in common.

This episode is all about Ned and Edna, and that’s the way it should be. I don’t really know what happens next, but I only have to wait until tomorrow to find out. It’s a surprising turn of events but welcome as well- this season has been chock full of stale storylines so it’s nice to see something spicy for a change. Although, I do know that the character of Edna was retired after the death of her voice actor, Marcia Wallace, so alas, Ned and Edna are ultimately doomed.
