Hilarious, with a lot of Heart,
28 July 2016 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons is a terrific Simpsons episode with a well written plot and loads of very funny scenes. It's an enjoyable episode that I always get a kick out of as we see Apu getting Marge to pretend to be his wife after his mother comes to set up an arranged marriage. Particularly the scenes where Bart and Lisa struggle to pretend to be his kids are side splitting hilarity. I did think the retirement home side story, which was a lot of fun, was cut short, I certainly would like to have seen more of Homer taking advantage of their lifestyle. It never forgets to have heart, Homer doing this huge favour for Apu is a sweet moment to showcase their friendship, and the wedding at the end was very heartwarming. Funny and heartfelt, The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons is one of the highlights of the ninth season.

Marge agrees to pretend she is Apu's wife when his mother arrives to set up his arranged marriage, meanwhile, Homer moves in to the Retirement Castle.
