Storyline

A new comic store opens in Springfield, which drives The Android's Dungeon out of business. Marge uses the space to open a gym for regular women, Shapes. Shapes becomes a runaway success. When Homer accompanies Marge on a business trip, he meets a group of handsome, muscled men. These men insist that Homer get into shape, because otherwise Marge will leave him. In hopes of making quick changes to his physique, Homer turns to a plastic surgeon. Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Husbands and Knives is a great Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and plenty of very funny scenes.I really enjoyed Jack Black guest starring as an owner of a new comic book store that becomes competition for the Androids Dungeon.I thought that the rival comic book store was really fun,but later on the episode starts focusing on Marge starting a gym franchise and there is no more mention of the comic book store storyline,I thought this was a lot more interesting than the gym storyline and wished it stayed as the main subject of the episode.The episode has several references to comic books in the first half,including characters such as Wolverine and Tintin,which I found to be the highlights of the episode,each reference was very funny,my personal favourite being Alan Moore's cameo.Husbands and Knives is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

When Bart and Milhouse get sick of the way Comic Book Guy treats everyone who comes to the store they start going to a new one across the street owned by a guy called Milo (Jack Black).Meanwhile Marge starts to feel uncomfortable about her weight so she starts to go to the gym,but it turns out not be the place for her so she opens up a womens only gym called Shapes.The success of the gym creates problems for Homer and Marge's marriage.
