Best Sideshow Bob episode in Years,
18 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

The Bob Next Door is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and tons of very funny scenes. It's a very enjoyable outing for Sideshow Bob, easily one of his best episodes in years, as we follow one of the most complicated stories we've ever seen for the character, which serves as a parody to Face/Off, it has twists and turns throughout that was plenty of fun. Once we get to find out what Bob is really up to, the story that explains what happens between him and Walt Warren is far too brief, it should been more developed and detailed in order to give us a proper analysis of what is certainly the most important part of the episode. I thought Walt Warren was a terrific new character, he was funny and dim witted, almost all of his lines had me laughing, though it is unlikely, I would really like to see him return some time, Hank Azaria's voice work as Warren is superb. With a very unique plot and some hilarious scenes, the Bob Next Door is a terrific Simpsons episode and one of the highlights of the twenty first seasons.

A new neighbour moves next door to the Simpsons that everyone becomes very fond of, except for Bart, who is convinced he is Sideshow Bob in disguise.
