  • Sideshow Bob comes into full play

    Kesley Grammer's flawless voice-acting--the right tone, body, and volume--alone makes this episode worth watching. We find the shady Sideshow Bob again determined to KILL BART. With humor both classy and classic, this episode is sure to please any Simpson's fan. Some of the best jokes include the scene where Homer runs in with a butcher knife so he can give Bart brownies, and the singing scene of the H.M.S. Pinafore. Effortless writing, delightful plot, and, once again, the humor. However, I did detract a point from these because of the needless rake gag and the slightly too fast pacing. Score! A delightful episode.
