A fine episode, most notable for the slick subplot in which Fry, Leela, Amy and Dr Zoidberg travel around America in a pollution-inducing hippy RV. Loved the tye dye t shirts, the hot dog sequence and the Horrible Gelatinous Blob's type-chart.

The main story is boosted no end by the presence of Beck, who really made me laugh, which was impressive as I don't really listen to his music very much and know hardly anything about him. It all spiralled to a great climax; the car chase sequence was inspired, particularly the cameo of a giant caterpillar in China Town.

I was a little freaked out by Bender's dancing all the same. The way he moved on stage was bizarre...

I agree with Otis, there was much missing in this episode. Yet, I know who Beck is, but Otis is right about that kissing his celebrity-ass. I read again much about 'best episode ever' here, but I come to think this is only one stupid guy, using different computers or stuff, who can't sleep with the thought of Futurama being cancelled... Hey wake up man, it was good some times, we had many good laughs, but it has reached its zenith some time ago. This episode is nearly as much crap as 'Lobstertainment'...

Bender finally lives his dream of becoming a folk singer... which makes for some of the better moments in this one. I enjoyed it... not quite enough to give it a five, but almost.

Well, I was downloading this episode so I thought I'd see what people thought of it. Needless to say when I saw the rating in the 70% area I wasn't most pleased.

But having now watched it, I can certainly say this is one of the best Futurama episodes ever!

I agree that the idea of the van trip was a bit off, but Beck was fantastic and he and Bender MADE this episode. Hilarious, start to end.

Fantastic, it certainly gets 5 points.

Very nice episode! Ok so a few characters were a little off, but the scene with cylon & garfunkel really cracked me up! One of the funniest futurama moments yet!

Bender's folk singing dreams is one of the funniest subplots in futurama!
