I'll echo the comments that the B-plot seemed a bit skimmed over, the only real weakness in this ep IMO.

I thought it was funny throughout, very clever, I loved the message and there were some great lines. "I don't want to live on this planet anymore" is one of my all time favourites - great delivery.

Great episode. I don't understand the negativity.

I appreciated this episode less for the humour and more for the concept. It was a very diplomatic and open episode, raising some good points.

I wish we could've seen more Zoidberg and Cubert, but it did rest fine as it was.

This was a really well done episode with a lot of LOL moments. The best is for anthropology nerds like myself and Farnsworth and the Ape arguing at the start. The dinosaur battle was hilarious as well. Like a rip-off of every Jurassic Park movie... except with robots! The ending was classy especially the dig at Bender's "ridiculous" idea (when in reality any way to describe the "start of life" sounds ridiculous). I totally loved Zoidberg's final line. I understand people are confused but that's the point ...

Pretty solid. Perhaps a little too political.

Good episode, especially the missing link scene. I also liked the professor showing the picture of bender riding the dinosaur.

I would be funny if in the chapter named "A Clockwork Origin" when all comes out of the cavern, bender say "Convenient for the writer of this 30 minutes duration chapter, the robot evolution is much faster than the human"
