Another very solid Futurama episode. I didn't think it was the best of the new season, but it really felt like Futurama. Overall the episode was good, not great, but the ending was excellent.

After last weeks episode and now this week it's official: FUTRAMA'S BACK BABY!
This one had it all, and it somehow only starred Hermes and Bender. Loads of continuity with respect to whom Bender and Hermes really are. Also it had lots of refrences to old shows and characters that felt fresh. In reguards to the adorable character driven flashback at the end, you almost made me cry and laugh at the same time.
Futurama team, Bravo. And welcome back.

Pretty cool adventure, and showed a little more about Hermes' character. I really liked how the ending worked out :)

Best episode of the season by far. Very funny, and somewhat touching. I'd definitley put this up with some of the classics for sure.

Hermes is the worst main character on the show, but Bender helps to carry the episode.

Best Episode yet in my opinion. As soon as I saw Ken Keeler was the Executive producer I new this one was going to be good. he has not done one bad episode in the original five seasons! wish he did all the episodes! love the bender/Hermes team. Did not like the beginning war sequence that much. I think Futurama is finally starting to get good :)

Best episode yet. It had plenty of jokes that were funny without feeling forced and did not rely on shallow sexual humor. Instead, the humor felt more like old Futurama.

It showcased the characters' true original personalities while exposing a new side of Bender in the face of mortality whithout contradicting the Bender we know and love. And it revealed aspects of Hermes' character that made me proud for once to be in a field so closely akin to accounting.

The pacing also seemed alot more like old Futurama, and I felt that the authors had put more time into writing and carrying out the jokes in this episode, resulting in a higher quality final product.

As for the sentimentality of the episode, it was quite a large dose of something I feel this season has been missing. Its core storyline (the revelation of Hermes involvement in Bender's life) reminded me somewhat of "Leela's Homeworld".

If Futurama can keep up the many good aspects of this episode in future shows, I will be very happy. I feel like maybe - just maybe - it's finally back!

Awesome! Lots of great moments. I loved the part where Bender pointed out that Hermes wasn't looking at the cool explosion.

It wasn't a bad episode.

We see the 2nd or 3rd version of the origin of Bender. But this time he is built in baby form.. so um.. he grows. I guess they were referencing the "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles" episode, which equally made no sense heh.

This episode had it's own actual story without the aid of constant current event references and random vulgarity for no other reason other than just because they can write vulgarity.

So.. step in the right direction I suppose.
