Honestly, how can you not like this episode? It gives a great backgound story on Leela and is a welcoming change of pace from the other episodes in season 4.

5 Stars!!

This is my second-least favorite episode after "Ahead in the Polls" merely because every joke fell flat, characters acted out of character, and the plot was given away before the first commercial break.

In addition, the fact that Leela has been exposed as a mutant is, in my opinion, a travesty to those of us who have watched the series since the very beginning.

Hey weren't those two one-eyed people in the top left hand corner in the episode when Bender gets Leela's emotions?
(it's just when Dwyane starts singing (or just before)).

I think this episode had the potential to be a whole lot better. It's certainly a critical ep. in terms of character development and the resolution of Leela's origins, but somehow it just didn't work that well. Most of the people here seem to agree with that. I don't think it needed more humor, I just think the plot was sort of shaky. Someone already wrote that they thought Leela's suicidal dive into the toxic goo made no sense, and I agree -- why would she do that if she was just chasing down mutants who offended her? Also, the weather balloon was just... weak. I dunno. I also think introducing Leela's parents just a few minutes into it was a mistake; it would have been better to give us just a tiny clue and then keep us guessing until the end (like The Sting, for example).
I think what made this episode so disappointing to myself and many others is that it didn't live up to its full potential.

This episode and Luck of the Fryish sealed my love for Futurama beyond question and doubt. The writers succeeded wonderfully at being both sentimental and funny without getting cheesy. The ending, like that of Luck of the Fryish, brought me to the edge of tears, all the while thinking "holy sh*t, I love this show so goddam much." I'll always curse myself for never having appreciated it while it was still on the air. Groening forgive me...
