491. Four Ninety-One! We’re just about 10 episodes away from the 500th Simpsons episode of all time, and the Fox classic has decided it’s time to start preparing the celebratory food with this Sunday’s episode, the Food Wife. On November 13th at 8pm, Marge, Lisa, and Bart become Foodies as the Simpsons take on the world of Food Network, forming their own review group known as “The Three Mouthkateers.” Oddest about their little group is the exclusion of the family’s star eater: Homer. For many of the 491 episodes, we’ve seen Homer devouring all types of food, from pizza to potato chips in space to sub sandwiches that are several months old. Surely he’d be a great addition to the group, no…?

OK, so maybe the trio only got together because of accidentally enjoying Ethiopian food. And maybe Marge was a little pre-determined to start in because Homer gets to do all the fun things with the children. But is that reason enough to let “fun dad” become a Foodie?

Be on the lookout for a number of food stars and mentions, including Anthony Bourdain, Gordon Ramsay, Mario Batali, Tim Heidecker as Amus Bruse, and Eric Wareheim as Fois Garth.

The episode also marks a big step in the life of Nedna, the internet-approved relationship between Edna Krabappel and Ned Flanders. Edna recently discovered that her rarely mentioned ex-husband has passed away. Can the new relationship bear the weight of this emotional moment? I certainly hope so – I mean, we just voted the cute pair together!!
