Lacking in humor, and didn't really like the story either.

I think this was my least favorite episode all season. I think I may have laughed once

A superb episode, a throwback to the original series in not only its lack of lame social commentary, but also the way the jokes were told. Not every second of the episode was filled with pop culture references, rather the jokes were put in smartly in between.

In addition to how the well structured the episode was, it also succeeds in two aspects lacking from Futurama previously; it sheds back story on both Bender and Hermes; the former is one who should have had more of his origin shed way sooner, and the ladder previously lacked any episodes to shed any to begin with (his only other episode was How Hermes Requisitioned his Groove Back).

Overall, a very well paced episode that lacked the weirdness of the first 4 episodes, and improved story telling over the 5th. The best episode of the first 6 easily, and much better than episodes 8 and 9, so with that said, give this episode a watch.

This was a fun episode with an ending that adds to the characters' backgrounds. I liked that they are pairing 2 characters who, before, have had little interaction. Lots of silly jokes

Hilarious, beautiful good use of two main characters. One of the best of the season.

This was an amazing episode, very well written and has the best jokes in the season, as well as the best reveal at the end, even though I don't know how plausible it sounds. Reminds me of the "Leela's Homeworld" ending with "Baby Love Child", so it did strike an emotional chord for me.

Best episode of the season! The Hermes and Bender pairing was awesome! Don't know why some people are down about this episode, I thought it was great! Can't always have Fry and Bender all the time. Loved how Hermes and Bender were on the phone, outrunning Killbots, jumping trains, and the whole Mexico scene was just awesome! The best line was, "Did you just call Dial a Bomb?!" Awesome hilarious episode! Best of the season!

I love the idea that Hermes originally inspected and unknowingly saved Bender, yet had no idea until this episode that Bender was that particular bending unit. A 5.

Finally, one more excellent episode after the "Killer App".
I especially liked the Speer-like architecture of the Central Bureaucracy, the McD-like logo, the Reference to Cube; how crazy must a man be to have a cubicle for recreation *wow*
The killbots are always three, like the Stooges, and _BAM_ the one in the middle is always first to explode.

The ending was brilliant, although some continuity bugs, but what the hell. Please go on like this.

ps. was there no binary or hex joke or did I miss it?
