A return of the three insane sisters--yeah!
12 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Helen Morgendorffer has two sisters with whom she has a very strained relationship. The first episode featuring this was one of the very best of the series and so I was thrilled to see them reunited again...and to watch the sparks fly.

The show begins with Helen receiving a couple phone calls. Apparently, her niece who was married in season two is now about to get a divorce--and Helen is being pulled into it. When the niece's mom (Helen's sister) arrives at the house, Jake proves he's a smart guy after all and he runs away--spending most of the show hiding! As for Daria, at first it's fun to watch the sparks fly but eventually it becomes too much--so she calls Helen's other sister--hoping the three can somehow sort things out and stop the fighting. While this doesn't work, it is pretty funny.

Overall, this is a clever episode--very, very funny and nearly as good as the first episode involving these three goof-ball sisters. Clever and very well-written.
