One of the most entertaining comedic episodes.
28 July 2006 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

This has to be one of the most entertaining episodes. It's about a music producer, who has planned to steal a million dollars from an Amazon benefit, but his banker (Katey Segall) figured it out, so he must kill her first. To top all of that off, his conscience (voiced to perfection by the late but great comedian Sam Kinison) is buzzing in his head telling him what to do and singing songs just to annoy him. It's a very funny episode, and a very amusing episode too. It's well done and so over the top, it's just an all out great episode. It's got some fun violence too! My rating: 9/10. 29 mins. Contains violence and language.
