An Entertaining and Different Side to Reverend Lovejoy,
10 December 2013 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Pulpit Friction is a great Simpsons episode with a very enjoyable storyline and a great side story as well.I really enjoyed Reverend Lovejoy's role in this episode,it's a different side to him that never been on the show before,particularly when we see him as a salesman trying to influence people in to buying a hot tub.I also really enjoyed Edward Norton's guest role in this episode as a priest who makes many interesting references to pop culture that I found very funny.Pulpit Friction is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Reverend Lovejoy is pushed out by a savvy new priest that uses pop culture to relate to his crowd,meanwhile,a mix up at a dry cleaners causes Marge to have to track down her wedding dress
