A Great Story,Imagination And Inception Parody.
12 September 2012 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

How I Wet Your Mother is a great Simpsons episode with a great story and humor to enjoy from start to finish,with a great title reference to How I Met Your Mother,and also a great parody on Inception.This episode uses great imagination in all the different dream universes,i particularly liked the old fashioned Simpsons dream where got Dan Castellaneta to do the old voice and everything,and also Homers dream world.It also had a great guest appearance from Glenn Close,back once again as Homers mother,Mona.When I first heard she was returning I thought Mona was gonna turn out to have been alive all this time (she died in Season 19s Mona Leaves-A),and I was excited about that,but I suppose that isn't something The Simpsons would do,but it was still great to see her again,even if it was only Homers imagination.

Homer keeps wetting the bed and doesn't know why its happening.The Simpsons investigate on whats making it happen with some help from Professor Frink,bringing them into Homers dreams.
