One of my favorite episodes, along with the superhero episode, The Farnsworth Paradox, and more. Nixon was terrific.

"I would no longer give this body back then I would give back my dog Checkers."
"Ruff Ruff."
"Shut up, Dann it!"


And the electric guitar bit was funny too.

this one's also one of the very few week episodes. it's the first not so good episode which has been done. maybe as a euopean i don't get the nixon irony that much.

One of the better episodes. Great mix of political satire and jokes. There's absolutely no dull moment to find in this one. Should rate at least 90%.

Come to think of it, this show is kind of funny but not so funny.
Not very much about that [Sexy Amy], she did mention something about 3rd Parties but I did not pay attention. She also got disguseted when that so called hippie ate that cheeseburger.

[SEXY AMY 4-EVER!] I'd give it a 3, why? because you can NEVER EVER HAVE TOO MUCH ABOUT AMY!!!

GREAT Episode! All the Nixon episodes are really funny! You really get to see him perform in this one. I love it when he goes on the rampage at the end of the episode and goes into the White House by knocking down a wall and shouting "KNOCK KNOCK!"

I hate it when Futurama comes out with some great episodes then it brings out some failure episodes.

This episode is not nearly as exciting or funny as the other episodes before.

It's funny to see Nixon as a robot and Bender's methods of getting around without his body, but that's it. There is nothing else funny in this episode.

Such a big let down. I hated Brannigan begin again and gave it a 2, but after this I think I should reconsider my rating.

But then again it's episodes like this that make you appreciate the better episodes. Such as,
Roswell that ends Well,
Parasites Lost,
Fry and the Slurm Factory,
X-mas Story,
War is the H-word,
Amazon Women in the mood,
Tale of two Santas,
Luck of the Fryrish,
Time keeps on slipping,
Anothology of interest 2,
Farnesworth Paradox,
3 hudred big boys.

Too good to be true, robotic-nixon, the knock-knock, and the political satire, just superb.
