A Storyline that has Occurred in TV Shows a lot, but a Nice Twist by the Simpsons,
10 March 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Double, Double, Boy in Trouble is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and plenty of very funny scenes. It is certainly not a high point in the twentieth season, but its an average episode that probably won't make you want to see it again, but you'll enjoy it while it lasts. The storyline of one of the series main characters getting mixed up for a wealthy child and moving in with their family has been used on television constantly, but the Simpsons brought their own original twist to it, the way that it happens and how the story unfolds is much different from any other television parody of the Prince and the Pauper. It's nothing outstanding, but Double, Double, Boy in Trouble is still a fun and enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Bart trades places with a much more wealthy boy that looks just like him, but he soon discovers that his rich lifestyle is not exactly as good as he may have hoped for.
