Really great stuff and Hermes gets his chance to shine at last. Some unfunny jokes do creep in though, but on the whole, excellent.

My personal favorite episode, with "Time makes fools of us all," being my favorite line.

This episode deserves a 5 for the end song alone, morgan was a very boring character but once again the stupidity of fry carried a terrible idea. A very funny episode but on the whole Hermes is simply a background character who generally isn't as funny as the other main characters.

Genius line:

Zoidberg: They said I probably shouldn't be a surgeon.
Farnsworth: They pooh-poohed my electric frankfurter.
Leela: They said I probably shouldn't fly with just one eye.
Bender: I am Bender, please insert girder.

I laughed sooooo hard, possibly the best bit of any futurama episode ever!

good episode.
lots of funny jokes and cool storyline.

"it seems clear that i'll not get inside with the rest of you, just leave me where i drop"

"gonna relax in the old jamaician way, a glass of milk and good night sleep"

leela's old boss is hilearious, my favourite charecter all times!
"oh no! what will i tell my horrible wife?!"

"...and she don't know i work, i keep my proffesional life apart from my personal life"

he also had a great line in the show's pilot:
"your job is to make sure that he will do his job weather you like it or not, and my job is to make sure you do your job weather i like it or not. which i do! VERY MUCH!" he say the last part in the funniest way i have ever heard!

Despite what others say, this is by far the best Futurama episode to date, or at least that I've seen. Zoidberg could have a bigger part, but the ending where they cut at his song is real funny. It's probably on a par with 'The Deep South' because Zoidberg *was* so good in that episode.

However, this episode kicks ass.

I totally agree with Mike,critic number eight, so I repeat his rewiew (can I do this?):

"A brilliant episode - one of my top five ever. I love Hermes' character, and most of the bureaucrat jokes were hilarious. The song at the end is my top Futurama musical moment so far."
