Why so low?

This episode gets full marks from me because of Nixon's dubbing in the G.I. Zapp segment alone, but the Bendee Boo segment was really well done, and I didn't mind the Purpleberry Pond segment too much either.

I wasn't impressed at all.

It felt like the first two segments weren't even trying to be Futurama. They were kind of doing their own thing, only they replaced the characters of the original show with the PE crew. This is why the GI Zapp part was by far the best to me; the dubbing gave it a bit of Futurama-esque humour that was seriously lacking until then. Even without the dubbing I reckon it could've held up reasonably well ("Did you prepare your parachute? Good, because I forgot mine.")

But man, those first two acts really rustled my jimmies. Looking back, there was exactly one thing in each of those segments that amused me (The Professor continuously plotting to get the purpleberries over and over, and Leela attempting to pull Zoidberg's "mask" off (which was subsequently ruined by having his head bounce all over the damn place)).
"Reincarnation" was much more broad than "Saturday Morning Fun Pit", which I think really worked in the former episode's favour. Old school animation, retro video games, and anime are three styles that are widely known even by people who don't care about them. But what exactly is somebody who's never seen Scooby-Doo or G.I. Joe going to get out of this episode? Jack all. And if it means anything, I used to watch a lot of Scooby-Doo back in the day yet found that segment the worst.

Anyway, that's enough ranting. I hope the worst of the season is behind us now, because otherwise season 7 is quickly on track to becoming the worst yet for me.

Really weak episode! First act was ok, but not so great! The rest felt boring and pointless!

Great episode! No one does parodies as well as Futurama. That said, this will probably divide fans who want more actual Futurama stories before the unfortunate end.

I like the idea of this episode but the application was very poor

I really liked the first part of this episode, but I feel like the second two acts were a bit weaker. Honestly I think one of the biggest things that would have made this episode better is if it were an Anthology of Interest episode. Have the crew watching Saturday morning cartoons when the Professor wheels in the What If machine and they all ask what things would be like if they were their favorite cartoons. I would've felt like that was much better context then just Nixon watching them all on tv.

The first segment was great!
Loved Fry as Shaggy, Bender as 'Bendy-Boo' (Scooby-Doo)...

The third segment was fantastic!
G.I. Zapp and the whole gang were awesome...

The middle segment, about a purple cereal - me no likes... But it may grow on me after 5-6 more viewings.

Well, 2 out of 3, not bad.
