Excellent start to the whole express delivery service. Introducing the rest of the employees and diving into the 31st century.

I am giving this a 5 (as you can see). A great ep with only one drawback.

Leela: 'It is beutiful, i guess i just never noticed it before...'

Well that was a fast change of heart! After spending 10min yakking about how duff the moon was!

It has great one liners though:

Bender:'Aah... come on! It's just like making love... You know... Left, up, rotate sixty-two degrees, engage rotor...'

Farmer:'This is Lulu-Belle 7'
Farmer:'Daisy-May 158-K'
Farmer:'And The Crushenator.'
Crushenator:'YOU... HOO...!'

What more can you ask for in a sci-fi, comedy, animation about a package delivery service?

This is by far my all time favourite episode. Benders' Fear of magnets and love of folk sing is great. The ending is by far the funniest bit of futurama ever "not the magnet, no no nooooooooo"

Great second episode with a nice title, "The Series Has Landed". I like the way the first Planet Express mission is one on a familiar and close place and the strange new planets are explored later in the series. The subplot (with Amy and the keys) was good and well integrated into the main plot with Amy rescuing Fry, Bender, and Leela at the end. There were a lot of good gags such as Virtual Virtual Skeeball, the lazy guy, Fry's scream when he sees Zoidberg, and the funniest gag of the show: the guy in line (Fry: "Wow! Can I have cuts?" Guy: "Hmm... no!"). The only really bad part was with Crater Face, it went on too long.

The animation is very good in this episode, especially when they were flying to the moon.

Fry and Leela's trip on the moon, starting when they went off the tracks, was fun and unpredictable. The best part of the show is when they go into the Lunar Lander and Fry gives that speech, "The moon was like this awesome, romantic, mysterious thing, hanging up there in the sky where you could never reach it, no matter how much you wanted to" and Leela sees the reflection of Earth on Fry's helmet.

This is a great episode with numerous funny moments and some sentimental ones. I give it a 5/5.

The Whalers of the Moon song alone is worth 5 stars.

This one's a classic. Love the whalers of the moon flume ride.

Tight, good pacing. And the last 5 minutes was excellent, from Fry's reminiscence of his perception of the moon then to Amy's deft handling of the winch.

The rebel flag license plate on the front of the farmers moon buggy was priceless.

I loved the character introductions of the first part of this episode. However, they tried to be funny on the moon by ridiculously exhaggerating Fry's character, which made some of his scenes as bad as an Adam Sandler movie. That loses a point in my book.
