I've been a huge fan of the show since the very beginning, and think "The Sting" is among the best episodes ever. Its definiately a personal favorite.

There's so much going on in 22 minutes, so many random scenes and character appearances that I wonder if the writer knew it might be his last. The plot is great, a deep episode.. many twists and clever ideas are mixed in. While not as constantly funny as other episodes, it has a lot of esoteric referemces, inside jokes and subtle humor.

CGI, animation and other visuals are absolutely first rate. Such a shame that we won't see the continuing development. I really liked the bee swarm in the last dream sequence, and all many other trippy effects - watch this episode at 4:20 for best results!

A mean one - almost as mean as the one with the dog. I loved it.

Like all of the best Futurama episodes, this one mixed touching emotional moments with razor-sharp humor in a perfect balance. Despite how easy the creative team behind Futurama make this look, it is incredibley difficult to pull this balancing act off, and they do it consistently, and perhaps never better than in this episode. I loved the Space Bee's response- "Duh." when Bender clumsily tried to engage them in Bee conversation, and the Honeycomb jingle reference had me laughing out loud. All in all, a fantastic, thoroughly enjoyable episode.

Very entertaining...

I think Fry will get her by the end of the series. Don't you think?

I mean, come on. With all those romantic things he came up with lately and with a little help of Nibbler of course. Leela has got to be the "Lilith" of Fututrama (that means a cold-hearted Bi***, for those who don't know "Frasier") when she doesn't give in at the end.

I personally would like to see them get together...

It was a good episode but it seems to me that Futurama lost its magic key which made it a wonderfull comic series. It would be said that season 5 is less considered than the previous seasons. The creators should return to the simple jokes instead of trying to reinvent the wheel.
