I wasn't really impressed with it either, but it wasn't bad, it had some good jokes, but it didn't come near to the season premiere.

Well any episode where Morbo appears is always a favorite. Not as violent as Morbo expected, still very funny and one of morbo's fav's.

Wahoo !

This episode was probably one of my favorite, maybe the best episode ever (I've seen all the episodes of course)

It looked like a real tale, the song at the start was excellent and Bender was really funny.

I envoid the littles elves so much ;-))

This season 4 is probably gonna be wonderful if every episode are like this one !

I was looking forward to this episode for a while, and I'd have to say it met my expectations. The song was hilarious. I laughed my ass off! The episode really was great. It had so many great moments. The Santa and Bender ending was pretty cool. And also, the Neptuneans were awesome. It had just about everything you could look for in an episode of Futurama. I t was funny, it had a lot of futuristicness in it, and it was just a good time. And, we got to see Judge Whitey from "Insane In The Mainframe" again. Overall, this is why I want Futurama to have long, long, life. I was sad when I heard rumors of this being the last season. But after hearing news that there probably will be a Season 5, and that Futurama video games are on their way, I say Merry X-mas and a happy new year. Futurama rules!

Though I didn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped, it was still great to finally get a chance to see. I had a good laugh when Zoidberg was taking a "scented" bath in eggnog, when Fry asked why the ship wasn't moving and Leela answered "I dunno! Usually when I do stuff like this, it works!", the sign "Tresspassers will be shot", and seeing Bender join in on the holiday carnage with the Robot Santa. Also the Robot devil made a cameo appearance! Overall this was a pretty good episode, although I kind of liked the original X-mas story more (mostly due to the incident with Fry trying to get Leela a present. Hehe, that's classic) :) Happy X-Mas everyone!

This just had nothing in it. It had minimal interesting plot, very few funny jokes, and a hopeless ending. Quite simply, it was fairly boring. While there have been worse episodes (what were they thinking when they made "Bending in the Wind"?), it's a pretty bad one.

As Fry might say, "what's the dilly-o"?

After hearing about this "banned" episode for over a year, and seeing the "mature audiences only" thing at the front, I was expecting to be shocked... well, i wasn't. This didnt seem all that violent to me, or at least no more violent than a typical "treehouse of horror" episode. Yes, there were some laughs, but I agree with some of the other posters that the show has lost some of its "laugh-out-loud" quality it used to have. Maybe it's a symptom of the constant threat of preemption... I dunno... I just want this show to remind me again of why I used to find it funnier than The Simpsons on a weekly basis...

not exactly what you'd call "worth the wait". the shotgun jokes were great and zoidberg as "santa's friend jesus" was funny. ("i help those who help themselves!")probably got the parental discrescion for that joke where the kid want's a coffin for his dead relative, who's still in the room with him. i expected more from an ex-writer of "mr. show"

I'm not sure about this episode. I liked it, but I liked the first Xmas one better. I wouldn't say it's a bad episode but it doesn't really hold what the hype created about it promised. I didn't see that much which would really warrant the later timeslot, not that this is a negative thing per se.
I'd rate it good but not great. Some lines were great ("let's see who has the last ho" (about)) , the professor going wild with his rifle was neat and the story was ok.
