I don't know. Musical are not my scene. This episode is the less fun of the season until now. IMO!

Sorry, guys, but this one just The concepts almost felt like ideas that the writers couldn't use elsewhere, so they did a cross between "Tales of Interest" and the Robot Santa eps. Not quite "That's Lobstertainment", but, sadly, very close. Compared to the high standard of most Futurama writing...not even in the same universe! :(

Quite disappointed, having to wait this long and still ending up with a not-so-great holiday special.

Music was a bit lacklustre, not nearly as catchy or great as songs like Hermes' bureaucrat song or the masterpiece of Fry's Opera..or even the Xmas songs of previous years.

I can see what the writers were trying to do by referencing Christmas/Xmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, but it seemed to be trying too hard to be self-referential - seeing characters like Kwanzaabot and Al Gore again was awesome but I think they took it a bit too far.

Hopefully the new broadcasting season will impress!!

The Robunakah segment was the best of the three. Definitely 5 stars for that one. The Christmas segment was quite good, if only for the wonderful ending where they all die. The Robanukah segment was just poor and not very interesting. Overall a pretty good episode, but very disappointing if you've been waiting months for this. I cannot stand Al Gore, and usually Futurama has incorporated him into the episodes in a way that isn't so bad, but he was horrible in tonight's episode. Really brought the whole thing down with his smugness. God he was so smug, and not in a humorous way at all, it just came off as pure environmentalist elitism. I hope we don't see him for a really long time.

Very "meh" episode. I only laughed at one joke, the "albino humping worm." Everything else was very.. lame and, like other posters have said, waaay too Family Guy.

I had been waiting for this episode for months and was sadly disappointed. This episode just is not Futurama's style. And the talking bees were really stupid.

Worst episode in an otherwise awesome season. Look forward to seeing the next season fresh. :D

argh. Never knew I'd be happy to see an episode of futurama end. they should of sticked with one story, or made this episode last 75 minutes. I felt like the stories ended before they started. Especially the first one witch was at least interesting.
