It's a shame... this was such a good show. What an awful episode this was. RIP Futurama.

Not terrible. Not great either. Surprising for Ken Keeler, my favorite writer. If they had just stuck with the whatever bender thinks up comes to life and had more of that then it would have been a great episode.

Great episode...and seeing the rating...this is no where close to being as bad as that yo leela leela episode. So if you deep down inside just wanna see futurama fail...F off but bad mouthing an amazing episode and re-rating it "1" a bunch of times is just stupid.

Figures that one of the best episodes I've ever watched has an extremely low rating. I'm left handed and have blue eyes, so I'm used to having people look down on me, but a folk music episode is something I've been looking forward to since episode 2.

I play guitar, write music for leisure, and listen to what folks would call Folkish rock(Deer Tick being my current favorite band), so my outlook is obviously different than most, but I loved this episode. It was either equal to or better than Bendin' in the Wind, which is another episode that I obviously strongly appreciate.

My only gripe I have with this episode is that Dimaggio clearly feels that folk music is a dead art. His singing was embarrasing
when compared with Dawnn Lewis and Mo's work. I'll let that slide, as the alien that was the best folk singer in the universe was awesome.

Mr. Beeler, I mean Keeler. You are the man, and likeminded.

Amazing! An episode I like and much of the Futurama fanbase seems to hate it!

The animation was spectacular here, and I really liked the direction. The production here was really slick and the story was entertaining.

The beginning was almost completely unrelated to the rest of the story. Felt more like The Simpsons than Futurama in that regard. Once it got going the story was really all over the place. Amazing how much they crammed into 22 minutes.

Refreshingly different.

The beginning was excellent, it was really nice to thoroughly enjoy Futurama again. Once the story got going with Bender's folk singing I wasn't so entertained but its still better than the other efforts in this latest batch.

Most of all I simply enjoyed the animation. The show looks great!

Finally, it was nice to get away from the lame lowbrow humor that has been polluting the show since Comedy Central picked it up.
