For Season 19, The Chills of Sideshow Bob Still Arise
9 August 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

For Season 19, Funeral for Fiend with the masterminding, cunning and sadistic Sideshow Bob is another great chilling, comedy which I still love. Man even When he disguised as Wes Doobner with the line "Hello.... Simpsons". That gives me the creeps.

The Next Sideshow Bob Plot sets out as The Simpsons family buy cable T.V and they skip every commercial to watch all their favorites shows in one piece. Though one night, Marge gets a terrible vision of a commercial man telling her to watch the commercials and she does so. After they gets sucked into a Wes Doobner Commercial. (Side Show Bob disguising as Wes) They then go to the restaurant *Trap* and Side Show Bob has them trapped once again. Then throughout the entire episode it lacks though it still manages to have an excellent plot.

This episode is good. I suggest you try it 7/10
