I liked this one, although it felt slightly over-theatrical and Leela's behaviour wasn't very believable. Good animation though! This season has gone from one extreme to another in terms of quality and style.

Didn't like this one for a number of reasons:
- Pacing was bad in this one. Its been an issue since the beginning of season 6.
- I fail to understand why the Planet Express crew is always going on missions with the original trio. Besides Farnsworth and Zoidberg there were very few instances where they tagged a long. Really the only one that should be tagging a long is Zoidberg. This group never went on suicide missions before and now they do. I don't know why this is and an explanation would be nice.
-Why was the Planet Express in the countryside? Shouldn't it be in New New York? Was it relocated?
- The plot seemed off. A whale with a human pilot driven by obsession. I understand the reasoning but I don't get the point.
- Finally, I don't like the new staffwriting. No major pop culture jokes were a plus but I don't like the plots of the new writers. Next season, David X. Cohen stated that future episodes will be popcentric. That makes me groan. The new staff writing is the the biggest problem besides pacing. (TLPJF and POB were written by the veterans not the new writers.)
- I know some people dig this episode but I don't. So I apologize for the list of complaints for people that like this episode. It's too bad. It feel like this episode had the workings of a classic. Worst episode of the season for me. 2/5

That episode kicked so much ass! But Leela should have gutted the Whale herself, oh well I guess everyone else did at the end.

Oh and Leela should of randomly had her shock collar on again from the 3rd dvd movie, it would have been a nice little nod to the fact that she still had it on in the last shot.

Zoidberg: Oh Leela we never totally resolved this collar bussiness.

zoidberg snaps her collar back around her neck.

Leela: Zoidberg!!

Zoiby: Woop woop woopp wwooooppp!

Then she could of shocked the whale into submission or something.

Oh well!

This ep was amazing, loved the ending joke as well made me laugh, I actually thought when this episode started that it was the tip of the zoidberg when the professor first tells us of the first planet express crew, I laughed quite a bit at this episode, heres hoping the next few epsidoes are quite good, the last two eps are much better than yo leela leela, season started off quite good then yo leela leela just ruined it, then it peeked up again in alll the presidents heads, im not sure what Im gunna make of fry am the egg man, but I will like the last three epsidoes that is a certainty, I just hope the episodes carry on well

@James 2 (#52) and some others:
Oh, for Pete's sake, it's a cartoon! A hand drawn bit of comedy! Does everything has to be explained in full detail? So what that the Planet Express is in the country side?! Did it matter to the story? So Leela behaved a little different than usual. It's a PLOT DEVICE people! Otherwise this episode would go nowhere! If Leela just shrug her shoulders, saying 'Oh Lord...', then we didn't have a story, and a darn fine one at that!

I for one enjoyed the splendid animation (it was noticeable better than usual) and LOLed at the many (cultural) references. Oh sorry, both these comments didn't influence the story telling. Because it doesn't matter!

So I enjoyed this one and therefor ...

Some good shots here and I like the references towards the Herman Melville classic. I liked how the very first Planet express was like a Apollo 11 type of mission in regards to a cookie bouquet. Good season so far.
