Not the best of Bob's outings, but he's a character who never fails to deliver. I'd anticipated this episode for a while prior to its airing, and I don't think it disappointed.
The plot is gripping and well carried out, and I think the two (Homer & Bob) form an amusing double act.
Plenty of great laughs, too, and I find the episode to have that little spark about it.
Possibly, my season favourite.
