Talking Simpsons #463: Regarding Margie

talkingsimpsons

Regarding Margie, the 20th episode of season 17 and the 376th overall, was first broadcasted on May 7, 2006 with a script by Marc Wilmore and directed by Michael Polcino.

Marge goes nuts trying to clean the kitchen in time for a best house contest, but when she inhales the fumes of one too many cleaning solvents, she passes out and bangs her head on a stool. When Marge comes to at the hospital, she is stricken with amnesia, which does not last when she immediately remembers everyone in the family through their quirks–except for Homer. With Marge’s memory of Homer erased, Patty and Selma help their sister find a new man.

The main problem with this episode is that this story has been done to death over and over again, American Dad did a similar storyline a year before this episode aired and Family Guy did this story four years after this aired and it ends up right where you think it will be. They do try to throw in a twist where Marge remembers everybody except for Homer but I just felt like they never really took any chances with it and by the end, the episode just ends on kind of a medicore note.
