Another enjoyable episode. Like many others, I definitely enjoyed the network execs, and have had my own mindset toward childcare radically altered by Bender's closing speech.
That said, I must say, to those who wish to bellyache over perceived 'flaws' in the show...i.e., the kids, excessive Bender-centricity, blah blah blah...
Come next year at this time, you'll be fervently wishing for such beautifully 'flawed' programming. Sadly, FOX's network execs don't use dice: at least then Futurama would gave had a statistical chance. Instead, they favor the opinions of samplings from the great unwashed, peppered with ingrates like yourselves, who are unworthy of such fine entertainment. Perhaps transportation might be arranged for you to the parallel dimension inhabited by the flying brains, who ALSO think they know everything. (I should warn you, though, rumor has it they've been airing large blocks of Teletubbies in prime time.)
Either that, or get Hermes to pass you that non-cigar that he doesn't own and CHILL.

Great episode, great jokes.

"Ahh, this show's been goin' downhill since season 3"

"More reality shows"

A strong first half, but a mediocre last half. That averages out to a four. Best part: Antonio's breakdown and Bender's "master of suspense" line.

I loved it. Very funny. However, the kids were extremely irritating. But all in all its a nice refreshing episode over some bad ones lately

A decent episode with some funny lines but not anywhere near the top of the list. Still, even an average episode of Futurama is better than "Everybody Loves Asshole" or whatever the heck is on TV nowadays.

Tinny Tim's "my good jerkwads" comments were a very funny commentary and how children repeat what they hear on TV. I'll be very sad to see the show gone...

It really didn't pick up until the second half, where Bender decided to lead a protest against himself. Hilarious!

Cubert/Dwight - UGHHHHH
Prof/Hermes - This whole being dads thing is really bad. If Dwight is ever in the show it should be no more than he was in "300 Big Ones" or whatever the name was.
Bender - Why not do a show that just exxagerates all of the character's funny attributes to the point where they are not funny anymore? (ahem, simpsons)

Yes this show had some funny bits and jokes, all listed in other reviews, but as far as the previous seasons go, this episode sucked. Along with alot of the other stuff from this season.

I just finished watching the Season 1 with DVD with commentary, and I can't express how awesome this series is. I'd like to think that the terrible problems with Season 5 are related to FOX.. or maybe new writers or something, I don't know.

Sigh.
