does it beat that Lougash guy
HERE IS YOUR CAT BACK, GOOD AS NEW
I'm exaggerating how good the line is, to emphasis how boring Lisa episodes are.
Apart from the Lougash one actually. With Robert Pinsky and Bart in the bubble. She wasn't even being overly PC or anything in thatun!
"I had a dog."
"...Is cat now."
Lis-er and all that.
It's just that the quality of The Simpsons in general has declined. Old, better-characterization Lisa was tops: "These are my only friends. Grown-up nerds like Gore Vidal--and even he's kissed more boys than I ever will."
that the balance of good lisa episodes (mensa running the town?) means that they're preferable to Marge ones
Are there any good Marge episodes? There's a fair amount of Lisa ones.
but really only because of Mr. Sparkle. Basking in teh reflected glory Marge
the rape one?
it's not a contest
but Listen Lady is a genuine good one
Marge becoming a realtor is probably one of my favourite episodes ever...
The Lisa episodes were often really good until like every other character she was 'Flanderised' (to take the tvtropes term)
