Best Bender episode of the season who really beated Bend Her.

Good enough jokes to hold up yet another 'weepy out-of-character bender' episode. Any more of these plots and I'll get perturbed though.

Average by futurama standards, which means excellent by most others.

The plot - Benders journey/what he learned on the way

The conclusion - moral of the story (perception of reality, what is real and what isn't)

The episode felt a little drawn out, even for just 21 minutes it felt that there just wasn't enough material in there. Futurama usually has A/B and even C stories running together, or else the highly intense 3 part episodes.

I feel this episode would have worked much better if there was something else going on in it.

There were some great jokes of course, the futurama universe was again expanded, and any fan of the show can spot the many interesting references etc... but overall it still lacked that killer content.

I'll watch it again anyway, it might be better on a second, either that or i'm not in a generous mood.

Lukewarm episode with a couple good jokes but a boring premise. I originally was thinking,"great, this episode will focus on the fun side of rapid technological paradigm shifts in a Rudy Rucker sort of way." as the X-1 was entered into society. But then things just veered off course, with Bender off to Cheap Joke Island. It all felt a bit silly. Ha ha, look at bender, he's made of wood, get it? Ohhhh, I get it!

I guess what annoys me is that for once, the idea that I had in my mind for this episode was better than the episode!

Although some really funny parts...I felt the episode was missing a lot. I love Bender and last weeks episode was so great I guess I just felt a little let down. Almost too much Bender but makes sense with the ending. I hope next weeks episode (Also Bender heavy) is more like Bend Her. Getting to see Roberto again was great though! "my parole officer won't give me back my stabbing knife..."

It was good, loved the Bender quotes, but I wish Fry, Leela, Amy and the Professor had more air time.

Well... It was good but not the usual Futurama 5/5. Somethings about it sucked but others were great (the cassete robot rocked). I'd givei t a 4.5 but I'm evil so it gets a 4.

Felt it could be better, so I give it an even 4.
So, Kenny Loggins and Beethoven made Bender's 'desert island discs' choices - would love to know what the other 8 CD's Bender smashed to bits were?
This episode reminded me of the island scenes in both 'Castaway' and 'Contact'.

Take a typical Homer goes on a crazy, wacky adventure episode and replace Homer with Bender. Add a weak and abrupt slapped on ending and you get this kind of mess. Obsolete, indeed.
