Finally standart Futurama episode - 10/10. Absolutely loved it more than previous ones. The pop cultural jokes was necessary when the plot is focusing on celebrity stuff. And big spoiler here: Is Calculon is really dead or he will return without explanation in next episodes?

I really didn't like this episode at all. I don't think I laughed once during the whole half an hour, and the one thing I was looking forward to was Langdon Cobb's face and it was never revealed. I didn't find it funny at all that Calculon died and still lost the Acting Contest and by the end of the episode I was left very unsatisfied.

Usually when we're given a Bender episode, most of the time it's either hit or miss. Mainly because all of the Bender stories focus on him getting a new career and most of the time, they are kinda bland.
This one lands somewhere in the middle with good Sci-Fi story which blends in nicely with a simple Sit-Com story. Personally, it's just okay.

Extraordinarily dumb plot. But at least this ep had a few good gags early on (especially the close-up view of Farnsworth, reminiscent of Ren and Stimpy).

That alone puts it way ahead of the complete disaster last week (Decision 3012).

Wow. Didn't expect they'd keep Calculon dead. They could easily bring him back though.

Probably the worst Dan Vebber episode, other than A Clockwork Origin. I loved the All My Circuits in the beginning, but after that, it was very bland and boring. There were a few good pop culture references, but they didn't make it funny enough. Really, it's a 2.5, but I'm nice, so I'm giving it a 3.

Fantastic ep. Great visuals, great Calculon, nice sci-fi concept of the ego and id. Loved the sight and sound of souls escaping from bodies.

Minus a fraction for the possibility that we might never see Calculon again!

I kinda liked the episode, there was a few parts around the end I didn't really like, and it has the same kind of ending as the past 3 episodes.

The first half was okay and not particularly memorable, but the second half made up for it.

And considering most robots have back-up units that can be uploaded into new bodies when they die, I'm certain the writers will bring Calculon back. I just wonder if they'll bother to remind us of that if they bring him back.
