It was OK. I liked the parts with Zoidberg, but the story seemed to be all over the place and didn't feel coherent. I kind of get why there was swearing, as a spoof of most mafia shows/movies, but I hope they don't continue doing that just because they can. It wasn't the best episode, but it wasn't the worst, either, so I'll give it an average score of 3.

#62 by Futurama was good...
I will keep this review brief and just highlight why I believe it deserves a perfect 5 score:

Pros:
-Great humour derived from the plot
-Characters all act the way you'd imagine (Bender wants fame, Zoidberg is fickle, Fry is a bit dumb but very attached to his goodfriend Bender)
-The plot was actually surprisingly well thought out with a funny twist at the end.
-I must once again mention Zoidberg. This is quite possibly the best post-cancellation Zoidberg act job.
-Great pacing, it doesn't feel stale at any part

Cons:
-The swearing took away from the episode. It was funny if you though about it from a mafia movie perspective, but doesn't fit in Futurama and shouldn't make another appearance.
-Clamps could have used a little more development, I honestly thought we'd learn more about him other than that his name is Francis =P

All in all, an extremely solid episode, very well paced, great character acting, and funny. I hope to see more episodes with the quality of this episode and the last two as well.

I thought it was hysterical. The swearing was clearly a spoof on The Soprano's and other mafia type movies...what is the problem? Eesh.

Loved all the throwbacks to season 1's 2nd episode "The Series has Landed". The Crushinator makes me laugh and they went back for some Earthican pizza too! LOL'd that they relocated Bender across the street. Bella was hysterical too.

This show is ON FIRE this season.

As someone who has disliked every episode (except for "The Late Philip J. Fry") since Futurama's return, I have to say I really enjoyed this episode.

Really good stuff.

#69 by ZOIDBERG!!!!!!!!!
one of the best episodes so far. Zoidberg finally gets to show everyone he's boss. And the Billy West joke, is by far the best joke of the season. Hilarious, the only episode I can imagine being better that this one, is Zoidbergs true origins, and the last episode of the season. KEEP THEM COMING
