I taped it, maybe I'll see it again when I feel better and like it more. However for right now, and I don't think I've ever said this with Futurama, it just seemed too much like one of the Simpsons eps. Granted an early one when they were still good, I think it was called "Marge versus Itchy & Scratchy" The problem is, in this case I actually liked the Simpsons take on the subject better. Further the stuff on TV execs has been done to death, resurrected and then done some more.

Still some of the stuff at the beginning with "All My Circuits" was cute. I like Tinny Tim and and Bender's end speech "Turning off the TV & hitting them." I must admit I expected the next seen would be Hermes wailing on his kid, but I guess you can't do that on TV. Oh Hermes "cigar" was cute in a way, as he's usually the uptight bureaucrat. Mostly though this one just fell kind of flat for me. Sorry all those present.

Hands down one of the greatest episodes ever.

The network executive bots were one of the best gags in the show, especially the one the _rolls the dice to decide the fall lineup_; Futurama striking back at FOX from beyond the grave. And Bender's final speech is funny, poignant, and, well, touching.

One more episode to go!

well, it certainly wasn't "so bad that it gave me cancer," but it wasn't great, either. it had some really funny parts - like when zoidberg said to the little girl, "here, let me give you my card" and it was just a torn piece of paper with 'zoidberg' scrawled on it - but the ending was a big let down, and the whole dwight and cubert part wasn't really funny. oh, well... they got a few nice jabs in at the bastards at FOX, so it was certainly worth watching.

A nice pre-farewell episode with many jabs at FOX for cancelling Futurama.

Awesome non-serious episode. "Have you ever thought about turning off the TV, sitting down with your kids, and hitting them?" haha! Oh my god! So great.

This episode had a very good flow. It was a fast paced and funny in many different ways, from the loveable straight out of the gutter jive talkin' from Bender to more highly tuned satire. This episode had it all. It is very nicely placed as a pre-finale episode with of course some great pot-shots at FOX. A definite 5 star.

I can't believe Fox actually aired this episode, and no other series has the balls to put together biting commentaries like this anymore. I love the Execubots and Morbo the most.

Get over the kids already.
