Good idea, done badly. Acting was unconvincing too.

Might as well be the series finale, they'll never do this good again!!!

Solid episode. It's Zoidberg-centered, so it was hard for it not to be good in the first place. Some parts I didn't like at all. The medical scene at the beginning is such an example. I don't mind the blood, but I don't like the show completely abandoning reality and drifting into Family Guy-esque territory just to create laughs (Leela jumping around without legs, Hermes falling apart completely...). Fry turning into different comic figures made that even worse. The Simpsons one was somewhat funny, but after that it was just stupid and unnecessary.

Fortunately, it did become a lot better after that first awful scene. I liked the story in the flashbacks, even though they weren't as well integrated as for example in "The Luck of the Fryrish". Zoidberg trying to kill the Professor was very well done and the Murdulator (as anything that is even remotely related to Scruffy) was awesome. The end unfortunately wasn't. "Yetiism"? Really? And first Farnsworth becomes a "double Yeti" - which was kind of funny - and suddenly he's cured? And after that, they celebrate it by going tanning (I know, I know, Zoidberg gave Carol a coupon, but still)? Does the show really need to rely on senseless or unrealistic events to keep the story going?

A good episode nonetheless.

Loved it!

I cracked up so many times! Way to go Futurama!

Best part was Mom and Zoidberg, sorry Carol and John, sitting down and talking.
