I didn't like this episode as it wasnt funny or interesting. Why did Zoidberg say he hated cubert and was sick of him at the end of the episode????

Given how many episodes of TV shows there have been "tackling the concept of evolution" this one went about it in a really original way and seemed like a really cool "science" type Futurama episode.

Not the worst and not the best episode. another average one. I did think this one had a lot more funny lines from Fry. "THIS IS A COOL WAY TO DIE!!" "Don't Eat My Butt!"

Kinda interesting, but the evolution argument was pretty lame, considering they're just doing another message episode that does really nothing, but going into robotic dinosaurs......ok, that was kinda cool.

‎Best line of the season: "The water's as sterile as my milkman-trusting father."

I didn't quite get the b-story -- seemed a bit half baked -- but the main plot more than made up for it.

iFad? Superior Gort? Awesome.

This episode was a very mixed bag. On one hand, the jokes revolving around the evolution debate were hilarious. Professor Farnsworth's and Banjo's dispute over the missing link was a highlight of the episode. The second and third acts saw the crew dealing with evolving robots on an asteroid who's evolution was set in motion by the professor. This set up for a funny take on the evolution debate that wrapped up in the end, which could only possibly capture laughs from someone who took an Anthropology course. The sub plot with Zoidberg was horribly executed as well. What could have been Zoidberg-esque brilliance was actually rather lame and not funny, and not in a away befitting the crustacean. And in the end of the episode, Zoidberg just blatantly says that he hates Qubert and he's sick of him, despite the previous seen entailing you to believe they were going to become very close. Did they miss a scene here or did I just not get the joke?

Anyway, overall, a subpar episode that hasn't been uncommon in this season. The evolution jokes were funny but not to laugh out loud proportions, and the sub plot was lame as can be. I give the episode a 2.5, which I round up to a 3.

Pretty good! Definitely the best episode of the season so far. I don't think the plot was particularly great or the satire brilliant, but it was a fast-paced, funny episode. The characters & world felt reasonably well-realised, too, which is a nice change from most of the season 6 episodes.

Absolutely great episode. I laughed a lot, especially at the very end, when zoidberg finally calls out cubert as a terrible person. Evolution stuff was very funny and sometimes I want to leave the planet too because of all this creationism shit.

This episode was odd. Too fast-paced, I guess. Something. The animation of the orangutan sort of seemed family-guy-ish. Overall, this episode was average. I didn't laugh nearly as many times as I did during Godfellas.
