I'm sorry but not every story has to be about bender or fry. Not enough Lela episodes. She wants to make the orphans proud but has to steal from these tele tubies like aliens to sell a show. Some interesting parodies of nickeldon shows and the ending is a typical screw you to both the audience and the characters

Have no idea why this is getting bad reviews. This episode was nowhere near as bad as the previous first four episodes of last season. Why this is getting the worst episode of all time vibe from some people is beyond me. I could probably think of at least a dozen episodes worst then this.

However, this episode had a pretty bad message. The ending was definitely not uplifting either.

So I guess with this one I do agree with others to have no more "Leelacentric" episodes.

I'm starting to realize that most of the main characters on the show are pretty unlikeable. This issue started with Futurestock, turned up in Law and Oracle's ending and now once again appears in this episode. Minus Fry and Bender (who you expect it from) the characters make fun of Fry's stupidity constantly and make him look like a loser. After this episode I would say Leela, mimicing Bender's traits, comes off worse than Bender. I almost think Bender has more heart than Leela and possibly cares more about Fry. There romance so far is non-existent and is not even alluded too. I don't want too much romance but I don't want it ignored either. Can't this show change it up a little bit? Can't we have a whole episode in space? Whatever I'm reading too much into this.

I would also like a Zapper episode. He's part of the reason why I watch this show. Its an average episode 3/5.

I think the first act and a half were solid, really on-par with a classic episode. I loved the return of the Orphanarium, and Leela's mission to be their hero and show them that an orphan can accomplish anything was nice to see. The episode takes a bit of a turn at the end of act two with the reveal that the Rumbledy Hump creatures are real (though I like seeing Bender blackmail--or is it extort?--Leela), but act three does its best to nail home the emotional point of the episode (that Leela feels remorse for what she did, but that she had good intentions), as well as presenting a (hilarious muddled) moral about being true to yourself or not disappointing people or being nice to orphans or...something. All in all, this was an enjoyable episode with a lot of funny moments; it loses a point or two for the missteps in the story come acts two and three, but I still liked it a lot.

This episode was so bad I thought Leela was going to wake up at the end and it was all going to be a bad dream.... but dear god that ending never came.

Was this episode for real?

Well, this was by no means a great episode, but people giving it a one are being way too harsh. There were some meh episodes even in classic futurama, and one not so good episode in a season thats been great so far isn't a good reason to start screaming "JUMP TEH SHARK!!".

Very underrated episode. The scene where everybody was making noise whilst Leela was trying to read was gold.

Wow....some people have a warped image of the old futurama and how good the episodes were. I thought this one was decent and way better than some of the first few episodes last season. I thought it had a few good one liners and the story was predictable but flowed nicely.
