Good episode, but... (WARNING: SPOILERS!!!)
12 August 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

...the part when Selma introduces "her" children (Bart and Lisa pretending they are "her" children) while in China to Madam Wu did not look like a good alternative to show how much she wanted to adopt a child. She could have told Wu that it was Mrs October's (Marge) children to not make it more complicated.

Yes I know it sound like a big compliment from me, but that's something what I would have done instead. Yes I know this episode is the "Out-side- the-golden-years-of-the-Simpsons-episode" and had a flaw from the writers, I personally think the episode shows many funny parts and a good moment at the end of the episode. Definitely not a waste of time but flawed. 7.5/10
