A Splendid Finale,
13 July 2016 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Orange is the New Yellow is a great Simpsons episode with a well written plot and plenty of very funny scenes. It was a different episode as we see Marge experience life in prison, and surprisingly enjoying it so much that she does not want to leave, what she goes through to stay in was the highlight for me. The set up is a bit far fetched, as Marge gets annoyed with Bart and forces him to go to the park alone, which was out of character for her, then we are expected to believe that the justice system is ridiculous enough to send a parent to jail for three months for leaving her child unsupervised at a park. Homer's subplot was certainly more fun than the main plot, as he aims to become the great housewife Marge always was, which leads to two hilarious sequences as Homer imagines a life where he stays at home and Marge is the worker. Albeit over the top at times, Orange is the New Yellow is a mostly pleasing finish to the Twenty Seventh Season.

Marge experiences life in prison after leaving her child unsupervised, she soon longs to stay there inside of returning to her boring housewife lifestyle.
