Simon Rich (creator of FX’s “Man Seeking Woman”) joins the ladies to discuss all things Woodrowwwwww. They discuss the sad, sympathetic qualities of Edna Crabbappel and the fine line the show walked with having Bart write his 4th grade teacher love letters, and yet never once did it appear creepy or cruel. Simon also reveals to the girls how often MSW episodes would be pitched to the network using The Simpsons as a reference point. It’s a classic episode discussion just for you because — truly, yours, is a butt that won’t quit.
This episode was produced before “Everything’s Coming Up Simpsons” was on the Max Fun Network.
