Just finished watching episode 2 here at 5.00am over in the UK and really enjoyed it. It was a definite low from the previous episode and stunning opener, 'Rebirth' but it had it's own charm. The second half dragged on quite a bit though. Looking forward to future episodes, when set in the present day. Still, a brilliant episode that exceeds the bar set for today's animation from shows like The Simpsons or 'The Pimpsons' ;) and Family Guy.

Zapp, as always, was hilarious. He's just comedy gold. Love how devious he can be, for a fat idiot.

I have to disagree. Zapp is a horribly annoying character, hes extremely cliche and has nothing about him that is interesting.just ur garden variety man-boy. UGH! i hate episodes like this! just give us zany episodes that happen within the realm of the main characters. no more zapp, no more robot mafia. not more alien bullshit. it isnt funny. i just like the series too much to watch these abomination

Again; not up to par with the originals.

The whole episode was based way too much on obvious sexual tension with Leela & Zap (they are naked for 1/2 of it...). It lacks subtly.

Does Carolyn Premish even exist? Or is she a figment of all our imaginations. This new episode of Futurama explores this age old questi--- oh wait? What's that? It doesn't?

The B-plot really shines in this episode, making me laugh out loud multiple times. Thank you Dr. Zoidberg, and the makers of Parcheesi. The A-plot isn't too strong, and I would've enjoyed if the plots had switched superiority.

Overall, not a horrible episode, especially one second viewing. If you focus on the B-plot, all you naysayers, you'll enjoy this one a lot more.

And, due to there not being a 3.5, I'll just round this up to 4 to give this episode some slack from the detractors.

The writers need to figure out what Fry and Leela's relationship is, and then put it firmly in the background.

The end of this episode (and Beast with a Billion Backs) illustrates pretty ably that the writers shouldn't have free reign over their characters' romantic lives, because they end up cheapening them - not to mention, forgetting to write clever jokes about them.

Overall, this episode had some clever touches (the 50s serial approach to Brannigan's dreams, the b-story), but the Adam and Eve plot was too forced, and the pacing is worryingly like the Simpsons after it started souring... rushing the jokes, and not trusting the characters.

Rebirth makes me optimistic for the future - hopefully the show is just getting its footing back.

Excellent episode with a lot of laughs. However, the garden of eden stuff seemed to struggle abit and I didnt like leela sleeping with zapp again.

At time of review this episode ranks 71/74 I just can't believe we are watching same episode. Have seen every episode dozens of time and this does not deserve to be in bottom five. Booo to you people and your critical futurama watching, enjoy the episode expectation free and you will see the error of your reviews. Gave it 4 tempted to give 5 to even out score but it didn't deserve a 5, really solid episode though. Good to have you back.
