Trivia

After Lisa realizes Bart lied about going to Dairy Queen, Bart then promises Lisa they will go on a water slide. Bart ends up coincidentally keeping his promise when he, Lisa, and Sideshow Bob slide down one of the conduits in the dam. See more »

Goofs

Bob tells Lisa he has learned a thing or two about dynamite after being a homicidal maniac for ten years, but earlier in the episode Bob says it's been ten years since he and Cecil have seen each other, because of the incident where Bob got the job as Krusty's side kick, so that would mean Bob has been a homicidal maniac before he tried to kill Krusty, indicating a secret murderous life we've yet to see.

Quotes

[Bart and Lisa are watching Krusty's Prison Special]
Bart: Man, those cons *love* Krusty. Inside every hardened criminal beats the heart of a ten-year-old boy.
Lisa: And vice-versa.

Frasier is a popular show on NBC
29 July 2008 | by freemantle_ukSee all my reviews

This is easily my favourite Sideshow Bob episode and is the best one made. It features Kelsey Grammar as Sideshow Bob and has David Hyde Pierce playing Cecil, Bob's brother.

The plot of the episode is Bob became a model prisoner and is recommended for early release. His brother Cecil offers him a job to supervise the construction of the new Springfield dam. However, Bart does not true Bob's intentions and tries to investigation.

A lot of the humour is based on Frasier, and this episode combines the best of the Simpsons and Frasier. Grammar and Pierce pretty much play the same characters on that show in this show. As well as the sibling bickering, there are moments of comedy genius ranging from great lines like 'You'll live to regret this', and psychical gags like when Bart and Bob are falling down the dam. Frasier is obviously referenced a lot in this episode. The episode also ways as a good thriller. This episode is a great example of the Simpsons at their best. This is the last good Sideshow Bob episode. Italian Bob was okay, but still not as good the previous Sideshow Bob episodes.

This episode is easily a classic.
