It was a pretty decent episode, I can't complain too much. To be honest Clamps isn't really a great character but I think it was handled well enough by Eric Rogers, keeping Bender the focus. The first act was probably the strongest.

I wonder if the beeps were added by the crew or if Comedy Central forced them to. I would have thought they'd get away with using the F word on a cable network. It'd be interesting to see if the DVD release has it uncensored. This is the first episode in memory that has ever dropped an F-bomb.

A decent if fairly forgettable episode. Still so much higher quality than the start of last season. First act was definitely the strongest.

Don't worry about the F-bombs. It was totally in keeping with the mafia / joe pesci from goodfellas style and jokes of the episode. They won't be back next week (i hope!).

No doubt the best episode in this season till now. Hands down!

I laughed to death when I saw the professor look at the opposite direction. How hilarious was that! That's what's called humor.

Not quite as close to perfect as Law and Oracle was, but still contained many classic gags. I'd say the Billy West joke wasn't particularly clever and didn't have as smart a punchline as I would've liked... but still as seeing this can rank among the best of episodes from the original series, this deserves a 5.

It was decent enough. The first act had me cracking up, the second and third acts had an equal amount of good and bad jokes.

I thought this episode was a weird one. The swearing felt out of place, and only worked the first time Zoidberg did it (although it would be interesting to see if the DVD/Blu-Ray release it uncensored). The first act was probably the best part with the wedding, and I liked the callbacks to both The Series Has Landed and A Leela Of Her Own, but felt the hillbilly Bender plot was a waste of time as I could see the twist coming miles away. The jokes were hit and miss (The best ones being JOHN ***KING ZOIDBERG, Billy West, and the Professor looking at the wall) and Bender being Italian was amusing for me. I still don't get why the entire crew go to deliver packages though. Overall, I'm not sure what to think of this one. Average at best I guess...
