It was good compared to other series 3 episodes, but may I say that series 1 and 2 are by far THE BEST! Therefore, this only gets a 3.

Seems you either love it or you hate it, but this is one of my top five. I didn't stop laughing the whole way through and although Nibbler's character evolution is totally stupid, if you take the episode on it's own terms, you will be seduced by it. Flawless.

Man, people really need to chill and appreciate the versatility of Futurama's storylines...flying brains, hypnotoads, and Fry saving the universe...things like these make the jokes keep coming. Great episode!

And the winner of the grand prize is... The Hypno Toad.

(Bowowowowowowowow) Hypno..Toad...Hypno... Toad... Hypno... Toad clap clap clap

Die all that think this is a bad episode, for hypno-toad made it the best. I wish to see hypno-toad in future episodes, preferably all of them. Thank u and by the way.. HYPNO TOAD

There are a few quotes of which I would like to resite
1. Fry: Quick Leela help me think of something
2. Big Brain: Yes I am the greetest!
now I will leave for no rason.
Any way, a script with about as much info shoved into it as barito. I must add even though it's been quoted by everyone in these reveiws....Hypno Toad....! In short it was simply fun to watch

I didn't think this episode was all that hot.

It had its good parts:
- Fry: "People said I was dumb, but I proved them!"
- Leela translating Nibbler was funny in how extreme it was: "you go on to say..." -- totally clowning bad TV.
- Fry and the bird with the megaphone was the biggest laugh of this episode.
- The way fry hits the bookcase and they way it falls on him is very funny -- it kind of reminds me of the timing in Family Guy but it works.

But then there was the not-so-good:
- Zoidberg's dance was funny was funny but the pet show opening scene just went on too long and it ran out of steam. A lot of mediocre jokes (an afghan made of an afghan -- come on) and overused jokes: the hypno-tode, and Bender whipping Zoidberg.
- All the characters acting stupid could have been really funny, but it was just... well, stupid.
- The Nibblonians were just kind of stupid. None of that was funny. That whole part was basically exposition. If an episode needs to spend that much time to explain itself, it's either overly convoluted, or there's no real logic behind it and they have to come up with *some* kind of explanation that usually takes the form of a long-winded scene like that.
- The end, the brain trapping Fry and Leela in the different books wasn't funny. It's one of those things that might seem like a good idea when they came up with it, but it just fell flat.

I thought this was a sub-par episode. It's not bad, I'm giving it a 3 and I think that shows what a quality show Futurama is: that this episode is one of the poorer ones -- one of the problems with setting the bar that high: shows like this one disappoint.
