A Visit from Little Sven (#3.9)
18 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rose's cousin Sven comes to visit before going to meet his arranged bride. Rose can't take him sightseeing so she asks Blanche who was just stood off by her date Floyd. At the restaurant they see Floyd come in with a younger woman, so Blanche pretend to be with Sven and kissing him after that Sven is confused and thinks he is in love with Blanche.

The Sven character was very amusing. It is funny how he made Rose look like the smart one in the family. Him being so dense and not getting things caused many laughs.

I also liked the restaurant scene. Blanche was great in it.

And while I thought I will not like the ending seeing that Sven dumped Blanche so easily for a younger woman, it was great that she still got Floyd. I guess he got impressed by her in the restaurant!
