Marge to the rescue
12 November 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

Another Series 16 episode that sees Marge doubting herself, this time when Lisa starts idolising a woman Marge went to school with who has gone onto bigger and better things.

I liked again that the writers have taken time to flesh out Marge's character, and I thought it was great that she was the one (with a little help from Barney) who saved Lisa.

It's also good in my opinion that Homer's ridiculous antics happen sometimes in the background, rather than being the centre of every episode, and actually they are funnier in small doses.

Another fun episode.
