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.
Awww, Opie got fired! That's saddens me greatly, but I'd hope he comes back soon. So it's another "Brian meets a girl" plot, with this one being a blind girl. And it had a lot of funny moments, like Brian creating a fake mugging.
