One of the Best Sideshow Bob Episodes
9 August 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is another classic Sideshow Bob episode that all will fall in love with because this episode seems to take a deeper turn and a wilder fall into Sideshow Bob's life - His Brother.

The episode flows along like any Sideshow Bob episode and then he is released from prison once again. Sideshow Bob then goes and work with his brother Cecil at dam trying to build up on concrete or something like that. Bart & Lisa seem suspicious of Bob's intentions and what he might pull. Towards the end of the episode Cecil takes the money from Bob and then plans to blow up the dam with Bob, Bart & Lisa. Cecil gets caught and goes back to jail and even as Bob had saved the children's lives, he had to go back to jail to. lol This episode is More funnier than the other SideShow Bob episodes though I really love this one because it's so intense and this episode just seems to come together in the first minute. 9.4/10
