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

What animated women want

What Animated Women Want

Couch gag: A Breaking Bad style opening credits where Marge cooks a batch of blue cupcakes. Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are watching from their couch.

Director: Steven Dean Moore

Guest stars:
Bryan Cranston as Walter White
Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman

Guest voices:
Wanda Sykes as the school therapist
George Takei as Akira

Synopsis: Homer tries to win back Marge’s affections (again) while Lisa is attracted to Milhouse for being a bad boy.

Discussion: I suppose the episode would have worked a whole lot better if Marge and Homer’s marriage was rocky once a season instead of every second episode. Homer utters at the beginning that he’s taken his marriage for granted for years, however their marriage has gone through tough times four times this season alone. This time, Homer tries to save the marriage with sushi before trying a “snuggle dungeon” based on kinky shit from Fifty Shades of Grey. Yes, because we want to imagine Homer and Marge having kinky sex on a swing.

Meanwhile, Milhouse is nasty to Lisa with unexpected results: she likes him for it. This is probably the most interesting part of the plot, but lacks Lisa’s over analytical mindset for it to work completely. We already know she likes bad boys, having an unending crush on Nelson, so Milhouse turning bad is really the only surprising thing about this plot line.

One reviewer said the highlight of the ep was the anime sushi’s adventure in Santa’s Little Helper’s intestines. It’s pretty sad when the highlight is talking fish being shat out. I suppose Milhouse impersonating Brando was OK, but it did nothing to lift the ep out of mediocrity.
