Best episode of the season, though it's not saying much.
Sideshow Bob always brings the goodness, as he's got that whole "Dr. Evil" vibe working in this episode. Watching Lisa break down Bob's plan kinda brought the old-school Simpsons feeling ever-so-briefly, which was refreshing. Gotta love that Bob now has a whole evil FAMILY that we've seen grow in numbers over the years. I eagerly await the next round of Bob vs. Bart.
"Wocka Wocka...who wants to hear a funny-ass joke?"
Loved the inclusion of John Mahoney as Bob's father. I initially didn't recognize the voice, expecting the patented Martin Crane accent. Then I remembered John Mahoney is from England, so the voice kinda fit.

That's next Bob episode, dude. One parent at a time. ;-)
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.
I love that Jim Halpert continues to be the Tony Romo of managers. What was also well done was Rainn Wilson's Kill the Beast song. Seeing Dwight try to get the support of his ex-girlfriend, his rival, and Jim's fiancee was the high point of the episode.
