This was a good episode about one of my favorite characters, aside from Comic Book Guy. The "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" spoof was, especially the jabs at the show, eg Moe saying he was told to stall for twenty minutes.

This was a nice lead into the main story. Although we've kind of seen this story before (The Last Temptation Of Krust), this was still a good episode. Off the top of my head, I can only remember a couple of things which were funny: the executives saying things like, "I was just thinking that" (funny in context); and when Maggie supposedly shot Mr. Burns again. They weren't the only laughs.

However, there were quite a few things in this episode, which were a bit strange. The lack of continuity was one. What happened to Cecil (from The Brother From Another Series)? Some explanation would have been nice. The second thing was the executives who came back to life near the end was really strange and unrealistic. Thirdly, the ending to the episode was also strange. Why was Bob given the death penalty? Are the writers trying to get rid of him, or what? If so, why bother even writing a Sideshow Bob episode, especially after so many years ("The Brother From Another Series" was Season 8)?

However, this was still a very funny episode, with very little wrong.

The best from Season 12!


"Ah,kettle chips!The perfect side dish...for revenge!"This episode was very funy,probably the best with sideshow Bob.

One question: was this realy the end of Krusty's show? Did they realy killed sideshow Bob?I hope that's not true.
