The Isotopes' star player Buck Mitchell's game is suffering and it's all because he's eaten up by seeing his pop singer wife Tabitha Vixx perform raunchy dance numbers. Seeing the Simpsons as the perfect couple he asks for Marge and Homer to give him and Tabitha marriage guidance advice. It nearly goes awry when Buck catches Tabitha giving Homer a neck rub but Marge reunites the young couple in the Springfield stadium, putting the groove back into their marriage and Buck's game.

A Nice Conclusion to the 17th Season,
12 April 2016 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Marge and Homer Turn a Couple Play is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes. It's an enjoyable twenty minutes as we see Homer and Marge become marriage counselor's for a celebrity couple, I really liked the relationship between Tabitha and Buck, the writers managed to establish a very complicated connection between two characters in very short time. However, the plot in general did have its weaknesses, it was all very straight forward and simple, it never tried to make the story stand out, even with the potential it had to do so, it was very normal. The highlight of the episode for me was certainly the dialogue between Homer and Marge, as they struggle with their own issues while dealing with another couple's, adding to the comedy as they clearly were not stable enough for the job. While its nothing outstanding, Marge and Homer Turn a Couple Play is a mostly pleasing finale to the seventeenth season.

Homer and Marge become marriage counselor in order to help out a celebrity couple.
