'The Simpsons' - 'Boy Meets Curl' Recap Season 21, Episode 12


Nothing says "I love you" quite like ... mixed curling? 'The Simpsons' take another look at the sport that's "sweeping" the Winter Olympics by storm. Yeah, sorry about that. I couldn't help myself. Hopefully you can just brush it off.


I respect all athletes, but try as they might I don't think the writers and animators managed to make curling any less weird for me. Surprisingly, the show didn't even really take any potshots at the sport. As far as I can tell, they depicted it fairly accurately, without mocking the inherent goofiness of it, other than to say Marge has been training for it her whole life by sweeping floors at home.


Even still, that may be accurate. The sweeping motion is, after all, a sweeping motion. That is how we clean our floors. I get that this was an Olympics-themed episode to celebrate the Winter Games going on right now, and that it was a Valentine's Day episode airing on the holiday, but the two themes made uncomfortable bed fellows.
