What a wonderful, brilliant episode! I’ve been especially looking forward to this one since the beginning of the year when the rest of the remaining episodes were listed. Seeing as this was a mid season 3 episode, I really hoped to see it in Fox’s ‘so called’ Season 4, but was extremely disappointed when they left it. But now the waiting is over, and I’ve finally had the chance to see it, and it was well worth the wait. I’ve always thought Cubert’s snotty comments are great, and with the addition of Dwight, he’s even better! Dwight’s a really good character too. Maybe this episode wasn’t a serious deep episode, but it wasn’t meant to be, it’s just a really fun episode, and one of the funniest EVER! This was packed with top jokes and one-liners. I loved the professor’s new ‘half baked’ invention as Cubert put it. That speaking things was great, especially when Cubert spoke into it. And when Hermes was jealous of his son doing better than him, and saying about all the things Dwight still doesn’t have, like “that thing over there”- Dr Zoidberg. And when Dwight said “My manwich!” just like Hermes did in ‘The Deep South’, like father like son I guess. And when Hermes said that they’ll apologise to the Blob Guy with “cheap words”, and when Cubert met the crew again, and called Fry ‘idiot’ again. And I though Professor Farnsworth’s cheek seeking kiss to Cubert was hilarious. And then we have the sub plot with Bender being pregnant, and his knitting and burping was so funny and being pregnant was great. There are just too many great jokes to list. Some people seem to think the sub plot was better, but I think both plots were equally strong, well done, and very funny. There was some really great animation and eye candy as well, and plenty of cool sight gags and things in the future that we hadn’t seen before and were new, just like the Season One episodes. I loved the neighbourhood floating in space; it was really great eye candy, interesting and cool. And the animation of the net picking up the dumped papers on the moon was awesome. And the flying tricycle type thing Cubert and Dwight built was nicely animated, and of course the red Planet Express ship. It was cool to see more of the blob guy again, as well as his family. And as this was an older Season 3 episode, I expect that was the reason why there wasn’t any of the wackiness like it the previous two Season 4 episodes, which was a good thing. Sure the episode isn’t the very best ever, but it’s extremely good, and definitely one of my favourites, and it achieves it’s aims of being a fun, light episode, while remaining interesting and very funny at the same time, with some eye candy as well. And I liked the way it used two minor characters to focus on, and give them a chance to shine. I like variety, and it worked very well. I hope to see more of Cubert and Dwight in the remaining episodes, lets hope they make another appearance.

It was a great episode. Great lines and included a cool Scruffy moment. I can't see why people rank this one so low.

Very good episode. It wasn't centered on Fry, Leela, and Bender for once. I thought that was refreshing. I thought Hermes/Farnsworth laughing at their offspring's efforts was hilarious!

Not the best one this season. The beer subplot was fun, did´nt like the idea with Cubert and Dwight.

A funny episode, but I prefer the action-oriented ones. Finally we know what has happened with the profesor's clone.
I like the the two histories interaction (the boys and Bender's beer). Learn about it, The Simpsons...
Ah! the Planet Express ship in red rocks, too! :)

Very good episode. It has everything that a good one needs - humor, interesting plot and also very good second-plan plot (beer brewing). It's not the best episode ever, but it's in my TOP 10 and deserves a 5.
