Good episode, not great. I loved the garbage crisis video (the music was perfect). Another favorite of mine was Farnsworth counting backwards, reaching 2, then starting to count forward. But very enjoyable.

A classic episode, with some great jokes.
Mayor: We confiscated the award from Wernstrom after we found out he was a complete jackass.
The Guy on the Video: We've filled New Jersey.

Probably best episode ever. Inteligent and funny. A very good critic to the "20 century style" when Fry shows how to make garbage. Proffessor and Bender have very funny lines.

One of the best episodes yet. The inventors convention was great, including the reverse scuba suit. When Wornstrum hit the fish with a newspaper... GREAT!

Good line

The bomb timer was genius. Great satire of New York in the internet video. One of my favourites in the first season.

Agreed...a very hilarious episode. Didn't anyone else catch the reference to Stimpy's Invention when Farnsworth says "Go ahead, try it!" A nice bone for Billy West. And of course the Star Wars bit with Farnsworth explaining how to destroy the garbage ball.

I enjoyed it..with gusto.
