Not happy with this sudden "adult humor", just because it's on comedy central now. However, unlike episodes like Gadda-da-Leela, in this episode it makes sense. It was kind of shocking at first to hear all those f-bombs, but they were there for a reason and they work well. Generally, it was a very well-done episode. The Bender-isn't-really-Bender-twist was kind of obvious, but I don't mind the show being predictable as long as it's fun. And fun it definitely is.

The workings of the overall design of this epiosde were genius, I simply adored it.

The ep was alright, perhaps a little better than I expected. Nothing truly horrible, although wasn't a fan of the bleeped swearing, especially on Zoidberg's part. Some funny moments, but Clamps isn't a main character to me and he doesn't really do that well trying to carry the episode. The Robot Mafia when together were great as usual. Not a fave of mine, but not bad either...

Unbelievably great episode -- Mo LaMarche knocked it out of the park at every turn. Up there with "Roswell that Ends Well," "Spanish Fry," and "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings." Zoidberg has never been funnier: "John F**king Zoidberg!"

I was prepared to give this episode a 3 because most of it really wasn't that bad. However, Zoidberg's swearing just felt extremely crude and unnecessary. It just seems like another example of the show exploiting the fact that Comedy Central has no issues with that form of writing. The story's pacing was okay, but I'm not sure if centering an episode around Clamps was the best decision. He's an interesting character, but personally I only find him interesting when paired with the rest of the Robot Mafia. Overall, the episode had some good moments, but the senseless profanity (and I'm not prude, I just feel it has no place in this show) kind of had me worried that Futurama is going down a bad road.

A very funny, Zoidberg-centric episode that suffered a bit from it's placement in the reorded Season. It was the third Bender-death in 5 Episodes and seemed a bit stale for that, but otherwise a perfectly entertainig episode that reminded me a lot of Season 2.
