This episode isn't nearly as bad as Saturday Morning Fun Pit was.

Keeler's only bad episode.

Damn, it was one hell of a run for him though.

This episode was great. I loved the different visual styles over Bender's songs, the premise was strong (though I would've personally gone with a different ending) and the comedy was consistent the entire way through. I don't see why people are crapping all over this episode, it was perfectly fine.

It felt like this episode wasn't going to end. Terrible. I love Futurama, but it's probably a good thing to let it sail off into the horizon now than to do another season and let it sink in a flaming explosive shipwreck.

My black hearted woman slept with a smooth talking gambler so I ran him over with my train, lord, lord...LMAO! This episode reminded me a lot of "Less Than Hero" in that the whole concept was sort of stupid and sounds boring on paper yet despite that it's absolutely hilarious anyway. If you watch Futurama mostly for the Sci-Fi element though you'll probably be rolling your eyes at this one.

I've always maintained that Bender serves best as a wise-cracking sidekick, and feel he's been on overload this season. The ending was clever, but this episode was just goofy for the most part.

The type of humour in Leadbelly is different to the typical for futurama - less satirical, more goofy which may explain the very mixed reviews. Almost reminded me of British humour in parts. The whole joke is how incompetent and unlikely Bender is as a folk singer. The fact that he sucks and the whole premise sucks IS the joke. If you don't get this type of so bad it's good humour the whole thing will be lost on you.

well i'm british and i'd say that generally british humour is very different from this - for a start it's funny, otherwise we don't call it humour. I thought this was very poor even before i remembered just how great the folk singing episodes (bending in the wind etc) were in the first run. this doesn't even compare. everything is so forced and contrived when it appeared so effortless before. bye bye futurama and thanks for all the laughs (in other episodes)

Still can't figure out why there's so much hate for this one. It was a perfectly average episode. 47% is ridiculous.
