Another great episode this season! Let's just get back to seasons that are of reasonable length and all will be well! (13 episodes does not a season make.)

I had just gotten back from watching Cars2 with the family to catch Futurama, and some of the sappy "friend" stuff was overboard after Cars, but it was still very solid. The Amish Homeworld was fun, and might have been explored a bit more.

I LOVED that Bender's ghost could possess electronics - very smart. But I object to said electronics then having the ability to defy gravity. Other than that, the haunting was great.

I guess I'm in the minority, but I loved the ending, particularly with Bender posessing GodBot. I also loved how boring heaven/GodBot were compared to the Robot Devil/Robot Hell. Way too cool.

Coulda used more with FortuneTellingBot, maybe, but that might have just felt like a The Honking II.

All in all another great episode!

Good episode, it had lots of meta humor, but it has a bad final joke to close on.
Also this epiosde felt like something they should have saved for the final season.
Still I enjoyed it considering how much score and previous refrences were re-used.

I liked this episode a great deal. From the References of old to the pacing of the story. All around an enjoyable story

Made me laugh. Having the Robot Devil in an episode is always a treat. Some really good jokes in this one.

Yet again I feel like I'm watching family guy instead of futurama... Even the voice acting changes in these lousy episodes.

Not a great episode. It had its moments, but overall the story and jokes could have just as easily come out of a late Simpsons season -- far too little Futurama-ish cleverness or science-y humor to be found (I did like the twist on cloud computing, but that's about it).

The first two episodes of the season, while certainly imperfect, at least focused their creative efforts on the kinds of jokes and plot lines that only Futurama can do. Anyone could have made this episode.
