Storyline

Marge is responsible for getting Jack Crowley,a prisoner with artistic talent, parole and a job at the school,painting a vast and beautiful mural. However Skinner dislikes it and orders a twee replacement. Both the new mural and Skinner's car are consequently torched and Marge is dismayed to think that Jack let her down. Homer experiences a similar lack of success when he tries to market a trash can as a cure for back pains. Written by don @ minifie-1

Fairly weak plot but great laughs
2 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Oddly enough, it's the shorted B storyline that makes 'Pokey Mom' memorable; although Marge's side of things is font-loaded with solid guest stars (c'mon, Michael Keaton's no slouch), it's the kinda thing we've seen on all sorts of sitcoms before.

The big laughs reside on Homer's end with his Miracle Spino-Cylinder; it's the direct result you'd expect from his tomfoolery and offers hilarious jabs at the chiropractic industry. I almost wish we could've seen more material from Clinico Magnifico.

7/10
