Other than the slow over the top start.. this one is a pure classic.

Zoidberg has been given dignity.. at last.

And you get to watch a great back story unfold that explains much about Zoidberg and the Prof. whilst watching great animation of the Murdalator.

One of the best episodes since the rebirth, with tremendous originality and a wonderful showcase for Billy West's Zoidberg / Farnsworth voices.

This one was pretty meh. Not great by any means, but not cringe-worthy like some others this season.

And I still don't get how some people think that the show hasn't changed from the original series. If I watch an original and then immediately watch a new one, I see the difference. The writing, story lines, character development, and even voice acting all feel much more forced now.

And the yeti thing was pretty weak.

The best episode of 2011's half of the revival season. An overdue origin episode that hits all the rights notes being humorous and heartwarming. Zoidberg episodes have a spotty track record, but this bucked the trend. I could have done without some of the excessive gore in Act 1, but the ridiculously hilarious "death wheel" sequence made me forget about that. I'll give this my one and only "5" of the half-season.

Easily in my top ten all-time best episodes of the entire series.

Nuff Said.

Was it really necessary to resort to Itchy and Scratchy type violence to show that Zoidberg is a bad doctor? They could have done something funnier like have Zoidberg diagnose everyone with all sorts of squid and lobster type diseases, mistaking brains for genitals, that sort of thing. Other than that I love this episode. Zoidberg is such a weird and interesting character so it's good that they wrote him some more backstory. Also the yetis and the murderlator were cool.

It's nice to know about how the professor met Zoidberg, with a hilarious episode to boot that has just the right amount of emotion.
This sixth season is fantastic.
