This is one of those Simpsons episodes that feels like it went by really fast. It's almost a shame that a lot of the focus was on Marge, because I think they could have gotten more mileage out of C. Carl Carlson's rise to power and loyal lackey Homer Simpson. Likewise, the resolution of the near-affair between Marge and Ned seemed to come and go so quickly.
This was the worst Beat Up Minka Kelly Show ever. Last week, Minka Kelly was barely beaten up. This week, not at all. Maybe a kick grazed her stomach in a fight. That's it. How can they not beat up Minka Kelly?
