Not just underrated, one of the best episodes in the series. Made for a certain generation, of course, and for people who grew up hating Nixon, but even that's not a prerequisite for enjoying the episode.

One of my favorite episodes.
Nixon is extremely funny; I can't believe I'm the first to mention "the only one who's changed is me. I've become bitter, and let's face it, crazy over the years." Every time he says that, I laugh out loud.
In case anyone was curious, the constitution says that no PERSON shall be elected more than twice, not no BODY.

After dubbing it my least favorite episode of all time, I thought I'd comment on why: it isn't funny. At least Mr. Show's political satire is funny. Nixon's head is my least favorite character in the show.

Great Twilight Zone parody at the beginning. I loved this episode.

Being a UK resident and not old enough (or well read enough) to have any strong feelings about Nixon, his place in Futurama seems more of a fictional character to me. Yet, despite a few political jokes going over my head, the satirical election plot seemed to make a lot of sense to me. Billy West's version of his voice really makes me laugh, even though I don't know the real Nixon's voice, and Morbo's 'subtle' bias towards Nixon was a great gag.

Let's not forget Bender's story in this episode though, which really showed what a well developed character he was: the fact that he could be so condescending of everyone with a pile of money in his mouth, even though he was just a head. Also, one of my favourite ever Bender lines:

Bender: "Get a room you two!"
Man: "We're in a room!"
Bender: "In that case, lose some weight!"

Makes me laugh whenever I think about it. Brilliant.
