This episode is a sleeper--in a good way. I'd overlooked it previously, but I caught it the last time through on Cartoon Network and found myself laughing the entire time.

"Take that you stupid corn!"

I love Beck, but I loathe this episode. I simply don't find it funny. I usually consider "That's Lobstertainment!" to be the worst Futurama episode, but after watching my Season 3 DVDs again I must revise that opinion. This is worse.

Guest stars suck. The writers seemed more interested in the in-jokes and whatnot than any conceivable audience. Some funny spots but mostly annoying.

As a folkie, this is one of my fav`s. I love Fry`s friends commenting on the old VW van:"Is this one of those Led Zeppelins, we've heard so much about?", "is this one of those Jefferson Starships?" It has such a low rating right now... I gotta give it a little more than, maybe, it deserves.

Who are some of you people and what planet are you really from? You haven't heard of Beck or olestra? I'm surprised you're even aware of Futurama.

I'm with Wimberly, it's not 5-Superb, but I feel I need to offset the moron factor.

Not everyone will appreciate how good this one is because some of the best material is regional. If you know the San Francisco Bay Area you'd understand the references to Bullitt, the spoof on GG Park concerts (e.g. Cylon and Garfunkel) , those insipid sea lions (OK, I actually like them.), etc.
Have you seen that Simpsons episode where they go to Japan? Half the jokes probably went over the heads of most viewers but it was so dense with material you were never stranded without a laugh. If "Bendin' in the Wind" had done the same I would have given it a 5.
