  • Sideshow Bob gets paroled from prison and sets out to murder Bart, causing much distress to the Simpson family. Parodying the movies 'Cape Fear' (partially), the family is harassed by their psycho stalker and flees the town to try to escape their trouble.

    This episode is just super funny and very well crafted. It pretty much makes the most both of a Cape Fear parody and of the character of Sideshow Bob as he stood in the series. Good, entertaining fun with some classic, hysterical moments such as Homer's houseboat snafus and Bob's incident with rakes. It's jam packed with great funny stuff, actually. 'Tis not to be missed. My one real issue with this episode is that the ending was a little anti-climactic, especially that random Grandpa joke, but it's not enough to bring down the episode. This is my favorite Sideshow Bob ep, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't most people's.
