  • Sideshow Bob is innocent for once

    In this episode, Bart is terrified to learn that Sideshow Bob is released from prison on a work-release program, in which he works with his brother Cecil. Bob claims he's changed, but Bart doesn't believe him, and investigates. He and Lisa then find evidence of embezzelment, but Bob claims he didn't know about it. Cecil then admits it was him who ebezzled it, and using Bob as a scapegoat. Bob then helps them escape. This episode was interesting in that Bob was innocent. Cecil was also a good character addition, and the flashback to the audition was believable and funny. I kinda would have liked another episode like this, but him trying to kill Bart is great too. Overall, an awesome episode, second favorite bob plot. 10/10 A+
