Tut, Tut my good ladies and gents…we are awash in the best of “Jolly Old England” in our Springfields. The heisting continues, but it is almost secondary to the cool buildings and prizes up for grabs in this Act.
I admit to being a bit of an Anglophile, so I am stoked to get some of the buildings and special decorations that have graced my imagination and book shelves for most of my lifetime. And if you have to steal a few jewels to get it all? So be it!
And Here We Are…the FINAL PRIZE of ACT II!! Nigel and the MoHo!
I will also admit, that I had completely forgotten about this character. I’m not sure if the episode from which it came ran together with all of the other “English-Centric” shows we watch (The Crown, Victoria, The Tudors, Game of Thrones, Monty Python’s Holy Grail) or if it was an episode I blocked out, because Nigel was intent on winning a bet to break up Homer and Marge. And NOBODY breaks up Homer and Marge…
It was a good episode (rewatched it on FX), but to be honest, it didn’t make me want this British lout in my town! But…he was free…I earned him…so there ya go! Boom. Placed and prancing about.
I mean, who in his right mind would pass up this, to go “drink with an English guy???” Even if the guy is voiced by Michael York…one of the other kinda “standard old school British guys that isn’t David Niven).
Oh…wait…it IS Homer.
But, have no fear…Nigel loses the bet, and we end up with Nigel and MoHos (the building that Nigel built Mo to help him steal away “Midge,”…it’s complicated).
Like I said…not sure how I feel about it…but, HERE HE IS! Boom!
OK. So yes…this building is biggish. But, if you store it…Nigel goes with it. Which might not be a bad thing…

And, there you have it! The FINAL PRIZE in Act II!
I’m on the fence on this one…but Free is Free… He won’t go into my England area…maybe Springfield Heights. He is a scoundrel who drinks too much. Oh. Wait. That describes most of the Moe’s regulars!
