This was a surprisingly bad episode, even more surprising because Ken Keeler wrote it. It felt like they had this idea that SEEMED okay, but instead of making it work, filled it with Bender singing.

It had a few one-off gags that were pretty good (Farnsworth on the CV cracked me up especially) but from a story standpoint this was a stinker.

One of Ken's worst but it was still a good episode. I do hope we get a couple classic type episodes out of this last batch. So far they've all been average to good. At least we haven't had a terrible one.

Amazing had a lot of twists and it did a great job of showing them off thru out the episode.
Ending was a bit predictable, but still worth watching again.
Also the fact it brings back bender in an episode where he secretly wants to be a folk-singer was well deserved.

I thought the whole thing was pretty f*cking retarded.

I thought the first 5 minutes of this episode were hilarious, but once Bender left the 3-D printing store, it suddenly got really boring and stayed boring the rest of the way. The songs got old quickly, and while the 3-D printer twist was interesting, it came so late that there wasn't any time left. Also one of the lamer fake-out deaths in a series that's done way too many of them. A lenient "3", mainly for the first act.

There were certain strokes of hilarity but I don't think it was a particularly strong episode.

Started great, continued a bit weak but ended well. Not a great episode, but definitely a good one, and with a lot of nods to past episodes
