Honestly, I sat through the first act thinking "Uh-oh. Here's the last *bad* (on the Futurama scale of course) show of the series. (I read here that "Bender Shouldn't Be..." is wonderful and we all have high hopes for "Devil's Hands".

The second act had several laughs with the obselete robots. Was anyone else here old enough to laugh at the Sinclair jokes?

But - the third act was a home run. From Bender's smashing the periscope for being technological sorcery, to Leela's "Oh Lord - he's made of wood" to Tinkerbell lighting his cigar. Golod - I tell ya - pure gold.

So - a deserved 4. If the first act had been a little funnier, it could have squeaked by with a 5.

"I'm a steam powered, wooden robot - the way nature intended"

What a good episode! Not quite on par with Godfellas, but comparable. I liked seeing Bender change again...but not too much, so I hope the upgrade only affected his feelings for Robot 1-X, like it did with Roberto.
Kudos to a surprise ending that didn't seem tacked on! Also, it meant the weakest part of the episode (the island) wasn't real! which redeemed the episode somehow....
And the main characters had some great characteristic lines, especially Bender.... (I'll leave those to the rest of the site)

Most impressive. Leaps and bounds better then last week. Some of the best jokes were just slipped in there with such grace. Turning the "No Boating" sign into a boat was perfect slap-stick humor. The WaterMill robot was great. Nice wrap up with the ending. My biggest compaint and what keeps it from a five was it was another Bender Ep. Not enough of the rest of the crew for me; not enough laugh out loud moments either.

What's with the constant personality changes in bender?
First he's a woman, now this! I like him better when he sticks to his normal self. However, the episode was funny.

Meh... two Bender-centric episodes in a row and we still have the infamous BSNBAOT to come. You know what i miss lately in Futurama? New characters.

It was pretty good. I liked the reference to the Sinclair and wooden Bender was a pretty cool concept.
