Recap / The Simpsons S 23 E 5 The Food Wife

Marge, Bart and Lisa start a food blog, and the ever-hungry Homer wants in on it.

This episode contains examples of (YMMV tropes can be found here):


  • Arcade Sounds: Although most of the games at the E4 Conference look current, you can clearly hear Space Invaders in the background.
  • Food Porn: The episode has many detailed shots of exotic food. Although it may be a subversion in that they are...too different to be appetizing for some.
  • Picky Eater: Homer (believe it or not) tells the family he hates exotic food over regular and plain items like burgers or whatevers in the fridge.
  • Shout-Out: A dessert from one of the restaurants Marge, Bart and Lisa visit for their blog causes the man who eats it to have a similar reaction to the one Anton Ego had when he ate ratatouille.
