Frasier is a popular show on NBC

This is easily my favourite Sideshow Bob episode and is the best one made. It features Kelsey Grammar as Sideshow Bob and has David Hyde Pierce playing Cecil, Bob's brother.

The plot of the episode is Bob became a model prisoner and is recommended for early release. His brother Cecil offers him a job to supervise the construction of the new Springfield dam. However, Bart does not true Bob's intentions and tries to investigation.

A lot of the humour is based on Frasier, and this episode combines the best of the Simpsons and Frasier. Grammar and Pierce pretty much play the same characters on that show in this show. As well as the sibling bickering, there are moments of comedy genius ranging from great lines like 'You'll live to regret this', and psychical gags like when Bart and Bob are falling down the dam. Frasier is obviously referenced a lot in this episode. The episode also ways as a good thriller. This episode is a great example of the Simpsons at their best. This is the last good Sideshow Bob episode. Italian Bob was okay, but still not as good the previous Sideshow Bob episodes.

This episode is easily a classic.

One of the Best Sideshow Bob Episodes

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
