The Best of Troy McClure,
15 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

A Fish Called Selma is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and loads of hilarious scenes.The episode is a fan favourite and it is no surprise why,there are so many memorable quotes within only twenty minutes.It is without a doubt Troy McClure's best episode,pretty sure anything he's said over the course of the first ten seasons (Rest in Peace Phil Hartman) is pure gold,but in this episode he is in the center and gets the most lines,and basically every line is outstanding.The highlight of the episode is without a doubt the Planet of the Apes musical,I appreciated those musical numbers when I saw this episode as a child,but watching it now after actually seeing Planet of the Apes,I get it so much more and enjoy it so much more,certainly one of the most memorable moments of the entire series,and that's saying a lot.A Fish Called Selma is a classic episode that all Simpsons fans will love.

Selma starts dating famous actor Troy McClure and before she knows it they are married,but the "true love" myth be too good to be true.
