    This was a relatively enjoyable episode. It had some funny scenes and moments. I didn't like Sideshow Bob having gills at the end. I know it was to help set up the rake joke, which was cool, but they didn't need the gills. I think just using the GMO's would've been reasonable enough to explain him surviving the fall and then doing the rake joke another way. Overall, solid I suppose.

    Bob episodes are always good, The ending was a little confusing has Edna passed away ? I know her voice actress died but I thought they were just going to have Edna appear as a background character

    It was a classy ending. I still avoid watching the episode when Maude died. That still leaves a vile taste in my mouth.

    This episode was amazing. I knew I was going to like it. Sideshow Bob episodes are usually great episodes and this episode sucsessed to be a great episode too. Not only It has many funny moments, It has also unexpected moments and I liked the interactions with Lisa and Sideshow Bob. The subplot was very funny as well. There are more things that I loved in this episode. I liked the reference to the previous Sideshow Bob episode, The Bob Next Door, and the ending when Ned imagining himself dancing with Edna was so sad but adorable. Not the mention the return of the rake. Forget "Steal This Episode", It's my favorite season 25 episode now. 10/10
