American Housewife Season 3 Episode 11

American Housewife is back after a (far too) lengthy break. I’ve missed the Otto family these past few, only I’1000 glad to have them dorsum for this Little Shop of Horrors-inspired episode.

Taylor is officially playing Audrey in Picayune Store of Horrors, because the original actress vandalized a instructor’due south car. Anna-Kat is trying to effigy out a audio for a radio contest, which Oliver agrees to help. Greg is excited to be doing taxes, and he wants Katie’due south help. Katie wants to hire an accountant, but Greg doesn’t want to. Tripp tells Taylor that the original lead is challenge to be innocent, and he thinks that Pierce vandalized the machine. Taylor doesn’t desire to hear information technology, and blows Tripp off over again. Anna-Kat incorrectly guesses the noise, despite Oliver pushing for a unlike approximate, and they determine to compete against each other. The next day, Katie has Greg take the kids to school, and calls someone to do their taxes while he’due south gone.

Katie reveals that she had an accountant do their taxes, simply Greg feels hurt by this and decides that he can change anything that bothers him, just like Katie did to him. This starts with an earlier wakeup fourth dimension for all of the Ottos. Taylor overhears Pierce talking about his master program to win her over. She tells Tripp that he was right all along, only it’south too belatedly to give the original atomic number 82 her role back. She also apologizes for not listening, but Tripp doesn’t want her dorsum. Katie points out things Greg does that drive her crazy, and he does the aforementioned thing in render.

Katie and Greg are now angry at ane another, merely they have bigger bug. Namely, Taylor, who needs advice on getting Tripp back. The whole family unit puts their differences aside to help her. They get Tripp to the school auditorium for the musical, and Oliver gets help sabotaging Pierce. They utilise an altered version of one of the musical’due south biggest musical numbers, All of a sudden Seymour, to help Taylor get Tripp back. Tripp forgives her, and they become back together. Katie and Greg besides forgive 1 another. With the help of young man musical attendees, Anna-Kat discovers what the audio from the contest is, but other people also catch on.


This was one of the all-time episodes of American Housewife of the flavor. While it wasn’t quite as strong as the midseason finale, it was still a very fun episode that had tons of funny moments throughout. As a large fan of the movie, I loved the frequent use of Little Shop of Horrors references during the episode, and I especially enjoyed that the musical itself played a large part in the plot. Suddenly Seymour is my favorite vocal from Lilliputian Shop of Horrors, so I loved seeing it used to assist resolve a major storyline from the season. I’thou also and so glad to see Taylor and Tripp dorsum together, they’re simply perfect together. Katie and Greg’s spat was really funny this time around, and information technology got just the right corporeality of screen time. Whatever more than time devoted to information technology and it could have gotten annoying, and whatever less time may have made the storyline pointless. Anna-Kat and Oliver’s storyline was also pretty cute, and it’s pretty funny how like information technology was to a recent Brooklyn Nine-Nine plot. I call back this show did it a flake ameliorate, but it was my to the lowest degree-favorite office of the episode.

Score: nine/10
