  • Last night, I ended up waiting for a re-run of the Simpsons to come on TV (like I do most evenings) and was a bit disappointed it was one I had seen a couple times before
  • However, after watching it again, I did realize it is still an interesting and funny episode and, despite having seen it a couple different times in the past, I found myself almost glued to the screen watching it again
  • But, I think the part I like the best is the fact the mom in this seems to like her imposter son much more than her real son and does her part to make sure he gets to keep his stolen identity
  • It’s definitely something you wouldn’t expect considering she never seems to like Principal Skinner
  • And, I would say it is one of those rare episodes that don’t get boring even after seeing them a couple different times

      Last night, I ended up waiting for a re-run of the Simpsons to come on TV (like I do most evenings) and was a bit disappointed it was one I had seen a couple times before; The Principal and the Pauper. However, after watching it again, I did realize it is still an interesting and funny

      episode and, despite having seen it a couple different times in the past, I found myself almost glued to the screen watching it again.

      Basically, this is the episode where the citizens of Springfield learn Principal Skinner isn’t who he says he is.

      Instead, when the real Seymour Skinner shows up, they learn their principal was once a street thug who stole the identity of his army sergeant (who he believed was dead).

      And, once the truth is revealed, he ends up deciding to leave Springfield forever (despite the fact nobody really seems to want to see him leave and Ms Crabapple even practically begs him to stay).

      There are actually quite ...

      a few funny scenes in this episode, especially when it comes to the real Skinner taking over as principal.

      But, I think the part I like the best is the fact the mom in this seems to like her imposter son much more than her real son and does her part to make sure he gets

      to keep his stolen identity.

      It’s definitely something you wouldn’t expect considering she never seems to like Principal Skinner.

      Overall, this is an episode that is worth watching at least once if you haven’t had a chance to.

      And, I would say it is one of those rare episodes that don’t get boring even after seeing them a couple different times.
