Great Episode! This past season has been pretty much an alternating pattern of good-bad-good-bad. This episode was definitely one of my favorites! Just about as good as the first one.

good episode! Any idea who sings the cover of "fly through my window" at the end of this episode?

Futurama NEVER gets a sound-selection wrong. "Little Bird" was a perfect song to close this episode on. I wish they would come out with an album or something.

Best episode of the season, in my opinion - even though it started off incredibly slow in my opinion. The war-reenactment scenes didn't quite work for me, but the subsequent story between Bender and Hermes was surprisingly great. Totally saw the ending coming once Hermes said he'd 'hack' into the computer, but I was still pleased at how they wrapped the whole story together. I really hope the writers realize that they can make some emotionally powerful stuff and run with that instead of over the top sex humor seen in Proposition Infinity.

This was a great episode with wonderful character development, a plot and an original story. It's great when writers develop something original and focus on their characters while avoiding current events. This episode was a breath of fresh air.

My favorite episode of the season thus far. There're a ton of nice background and subtle gags ("Let's get brick-faced," the death certificate guy from a past episode), and we get more development on Hermes and Bender than we've gotten in a very long time.

The episode could've been a tad funnier, but all things considered, that's a minor complaint.

Sort of between a 4 and 5 for me, but I'll be generous today since I'm a fan of Hermes episodes and this was particularly charming. More episodes of the show should have this style of writing.

Another episode that really feels like the classics. In fact, it's better than some of the classics!

A little weird that Hermes and Bender were main characters but still really fun nonetheless. Also, if the killbots can just shoot Bender to make limbo music, how the hell were they supposed to kill him?

I didn't think that a Bender/Hermes pairing would work out for an episode, but it really did here. Tons of jokes, great directing and music here. Terrific script.

I think that the reenactment at the beginning went for too long (4 minutes?!) and wasn't that funny. I would've liked to have some of that cut for more of Leela's B-story. But that's really my only complaint about this episode.
