its ok but it doesn't all make sense, if they had to make a delivery the day after the scientist's award thing they missed the delivery. fry found the garbage ball during the day, as is obvouse cause you can see the sky.

nobody mentions the deliver exept right before the intro.

it doesn't make sense!!

good episode otherwise though

Best bitz:

Prof:'I've got something that'll put you young whippersnappers in your place!'
Wornstrom:'I hope it's not as lame as that death clock you made last year.'
Prof:'Oh my... Did it put you young whippersnappers in your place?'
(Wornstrom leaves)
Prof:'Oh my. I'll have to invent something within the next 10 minutes, perhaps some kind of death clock...'

Prof:'The smell travels through this coffee stain, around this olive pip and into this cigar burn. And... this, appears to be a... doodle of... myself, as a cowboy.'

Prof:'5, 4, 3, 2, 3, 4'(keeps counting)
Leela:'Just launch the damn thing.'
Fry:'OK'(he misses the button, tries again and presses it.) 'There we go.'

I was bent double with laughter on that second one.

Great, especially Professor Farnsworth and his senility. Of course, a few things didn't make sense, like: how could a garbage ball that's so mushy a missile can go through it be able to destroy a large city? That doesn't matter though because this is sci-fi and they can make up whatever they want. 5/5

six-h minutes! What a great gag!

And when Fry missed the button with his finger? These unexpected(and mostly insubstantial) jokes are just killer.

It was great to have a episode centered around Farnsworth. This episode really helps to develop character of Farnsworth more than any other episode that I have seen. I think this is also the first time we know that Zoidberg is very hungry. We are also introduced to the mayor. This is one of my favorite episodes of Futurama and my favorite in the first season!

Plenty of great jokes, but the storyline wasnt fantastic.

The part about the death clock
Leela: Does it really work
Prof: Oh, its occasionally off by one or two minutes, what with free will and all.

Fry: Its not filth. Its a great monument to the achievements of the twentieth century

And my favourite line
Bender: MMmmmmmmm, shorts.
