I feel conflicted about this episode. It was really good, but it seemed very dark. There was a lot of blood and gore at the beginning (I suppose that's another one of the symptoms of being on cable now) and I didn't like how the characters were so quickly willing to murder each other. That was probably supposed to be funny in a shock-humor sort of way, but I find the combination of murder and humor to be disturbing.

The story about Zoidberg and the Professor was good and it was interesting to see that Zoidberg had a connection with Mom and such an exciting background. Who would have guessed that? I want to give it a 5, but the violence seemed to dumb it down to a teenage-boy level, which took away from an otherwise epic storyline, so I'll give it a 4.

Not "overrated" per se, but some parts that were totally un-sci-fi did feel too cartoonish for Futurama.

I loved Futurama for how I was always able to find a plausible bias for things happening the way they did. As long as they were not too stretched.

But a person surviving having been cut in two? Among other things? Reeks too much of absurdism. Thanks, I've had all the Sartre/Camus/Kierkegard I can take in the university.

With that said, I will once again give this episode a 5 because the, unfortunately single-skinned, canopy did still have 7 cells like a good old accuracy canopy should have.

This was another quality episode. Still waiting for that god tier episode of season 6B, but another consistently funny episode.

I think this episode was the best of season 6B. And why? Because there were no jokes about/parodies of things that we have got today. There were small things I didn't like that has been mentioned by others; but nothing that didn't change the feeling of this episode.

What an epic conclusion to the long awaited origins of Zoidberg and the Prof. history together.

Ken Keeler for president... of Futurama.

"Contents: More crates."

The history! The gyroscope-Murdulator! And I thought the Zoid was good in "Silence of the the Clamps" ...

I especially liked his interaction with Carol (Mom). If things keep up, this may be the season of Zoidberg. And that's a good thing. This kicked the @ss of that Harold Zoid thing.

Good episode

I liked

-The back story
-Zoidberg's relationship with Farnsworth
-Zoidberg's relationship with Mom.

I didn't like
-Fry's health dilema with Zoidberg.
-How, the crew was so easily willing to kill each other.
-The background music. (Been bugging me all season.)

Overall, best of season 6b. It's a 7.5/10 but I'll round to a 4/5.

The violence mixed with comedy and expanding on everything the show has ever been about made for an impressive episode indeed.

Zoidberg is the soul of this show now, sorry Bender and Fry.

Awesome. Great pacing. Best Zoidberg episode yet. Probably tied with The Late Philip J. Fry!
