This episode was good, and has the charm and wit of the older episodes. It was nice to see Zoidberg stand up for himself for once. Finally, I don't know why this episode is rated so low. What do you people want? I guess no episode will ever be good enough for some of the high strung people here. Maybe it would be better if Futurama was still cancelled for these sad individuals.

A solid "B". Good set-up with some clever jokes in the first act, and it (finally) made good use of Zoidberg.

The episode felt like it suffered from an identity crisis, though. I couldn't tell what it was trying to be - a mob satire? a Zoidberg-centric revenge fantasy? a Clamps character development episode? As a result, the episode needed so much exposition that it ended up squeezing out too many non-superficial jokes. Frankly, I think it would've worked better if they hadn't gone to the moon at all.

Solid episode. Closing line was really funny. Maximally satisfied with this season so far!

I enjoyed it, not the best of the season, but still no complaints.
I've gotten a big kick out of the expanded roles for URL in the last episode and Clamps in this one. They're 2 of the more entertaining robots, and yet they usually have minor roles

I'm JOHN F*&^in' ZOIDBERG!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow I'm giving this episode a 6/5 for finally making Zoiby into the badass we all know he is.

P.S. Maurice LaMarche has really let his voices get sloppy hasn't he? Hedonismbot and Calculon sound different in each episode now, actually in every scene they change voices, it's incredibly bad and takes me out of the story and makes me question whats going on behind the scenes.

I thought it was a pretty good episode and jokes that hit the mark. It was nice to see the moon again and revisit some of those gags. I wonder if, like in the past, the writers just have a card for plot lines that says "Character Dies" that is getting worn out. "Run Away" isn't used as much now.
