I can't believe this episode made it through production...Beck is unquestionably the most dumbfounding success story of my lifetime: unique or not, he gurgles choad guacamole. There are points in the show where the writers try to rip on him, but it looks like they wussed out of really tearing into him; probably because of his control over the forces of evil.

If that isnt enough to rate this episode lower than Canada, Bender's song at the end (probably writeen by Beck - if not then CERTAINLY influenced by him) sets the standard as the absolute worst song ever recorded. Just thinking about it makes me want to light my face on fire in hopes that my deafening screams will put a more melodic and better written tune in my head.

Every episode I specifically LIKE are the ones no one else does.

The Cylin Garfunkel scene rules, the Becktionary rules, and certainly Bender's song itself rules.

"Ahhhh- I'm like Christina Agulara singing in Spanish!"

"That song doesn't usually go on that long, but we got into a serious "thing", and then I forgot how it ended..."

"Goodbye, get well soon! Oh. Well, Goodbye."

In some weird way, I've grown to like this episode. At first, I hated it; it was all too focused on the celebrity guest. But now I like this episode for all its little jokes and one-liners... "What is this, the year of the jerk?" has become a welcomed addition to my vocabulary, particularly during rush-hour traffic :)

one of my favorite episodes ever.. the whole bender-being-folksinger-plot is just one of the greatest and weirdest things i've ever encountered on television! go bender!

although i really am a fan of beck, i must admit this episode somewhat was too friendly to his character..

the best parts in my opinion are simon & garfunkel, the bong in the van and benders song where he starts moving - especially this "throw your hands in the air/wave 'em like you don't care"-line and his movements! ahh, i love it.

Not the best. but has some memorable bits.

Bender:'I'll save me!'

Amy:'My shirt's ruined, ruined!'
Leela:'Actually i quite like it.'
Amy:'Me too, now that i'm used to it.'
