one word: antiquing.

Nixon is grotesquely evil again (see "A Head in the Polls"), as Groening's bitter satire rears its ugly head.

A little too heavy on the political commentary and anti-war message, and too light on plot. The enemy is bouncing balls? Lame. The Bender Bomb finale wasn't even that funny.

The same premise could/should have been a lot funnier.

The Leela/Zap Branigan bit was the only element that was executed well.

Well...I just don't know. Itīs kind of strange and irregular episode. Leela disguising as a man to join the army is not what I would call an original idea, but Bender's Top Ten is kind of funny.

A pretty good episode.

pros:
The tent in Fry's mouth.
Zapp: "Uh huh, Uh huh, that's whatever you were talking about for you."
Zapp: "The key to victory is the element of surprise... Surprise!"
Bender's top ten.
Fry's parachuting -- you could see it coming, but it was still damn funny.
The end: hilarious.

Cons:
The almost non-existence of many of the supporting characters (the professor, Hermes, Amy)
The story was gimmickey (if that's a word) which they all are, obviously, but this one was just really thin -- you could tell they sat around in the writer's room saying "how can we get them in this situation" and they spent about 12 minutes thinking it up. good stories, even if they're way out there, grow out of the characters and this one didn't really.
Kif's berating Fry: it wasn't funny and seems out of character.
Quite a few overused jokes: Bender telling "Lee Lemon" why he's great, obvious ball jokes (especially the newspaper), the Alan Alda doctor switching from irreverant to maudlin, Zapp attracted to Lee Lemon -- all were funny the first time, and the laughter ended there.

Still, a pretty good episode.
