Storyline

While on work duty at a local airfield, Sideshow Bob escapes from prison and breaks into a hangar. There, he gains control of the airwaves and demands that all television stations immediately go off the air permanently ... or else he'll detonate an atomic bomb. When the authorities are unable to find Bob, they decide to err on the side of safety and give into his demands. However, Krusty the Clown uses an emergency transmitter to begin broadcasting from a civil defense shed. Bob is angered and detonates the bomb, which turns out to be a dud. With both moves having failed, Bob kidnaps Bart and steals a Wright Brothers-era plane to crash into the civil defense shed where Krusty is holed up inside. However, the antique plane is mechanically unable to carry out its intended suicide mission, and once the plane stalls, Bob is easily arrested. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

My Second Favorite Simpsons Episode Ever!
9 August 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

After Cape Feare, this would have to be my next favorite episode in the entire Simpsons episodes. Once again with Sideshow Bob.

The Story plots out again as Side Show Bob escapes prison. Side show Bob is then sick of television and he thinks that everyone's lives would be much richer without T.V. The town of Springfield think he's crazy and he is as he threatens the town of Springfield that he will detonate a Bomb from 1959. The town then must cooperate so they aren't killed. Later on Lisa & Bart foil Bob's plan and he is sent back to jail once again.

I think this is another excellent Sideshow Bob episode. 9/10
