I thought this episode was 1 of the best because of the robotic nixon + anyone see the robotic grapple hook? On a personal note i nearly bust a nut laughing

Ships Gunner gave 5 points

Typical season 2 episode, very good and as "Ships Gunner" stated, the robotic graplin hook was class. Also when Nixon got that masive robot body at the end, it reminded me of an 80s toy called Transformers which is good.

Sway the polls, this episode sucked. I don't care how evil Nixon is, he doesn't deserve to be president again.

Gosh darn great frickin' episode. Political satire at its very best.

Amazing. Incredible. Sorry, thinking about something else.;)
Maybe because I'm not American, I found the episode a bit awkward - but the political satire is throughly universal, and Nixon really is a worthy opponent, not to mention hilariously evil ("now if you don't mind, I'm going to inch myself over to the telephone and call the police" - "Nixon, with charisma? My God! I can rule the Universe!!"). A parody of an American president is always excellent - George W. Bush should be next. Well, maybe in 30 years time, like Nixon.;>
Amazing 3D animations and well-written episode. "Robotic Nixon" is very well conceived, in both versions. If you wanna see an entertaining episode, that poses some interesting questions (about who is really controlling your fate and at what extent your reliance in society is doubtful), this is where to begin in Futurama - on the surface, it may all seem senseless, but if you really wonder... robotic or not, there ARE evil people that don't care about our asses - ruling us from the sideways.

An interesting note: I have some friends of mine that don't really dig Futurama - but they do LOVE South Park. (I'm really the opposite, I can't stand SP's characters, and its dumb senseless humour.) However, they really enjoyed this episode; because it delivers a lot of bang and sharp dialogue. It has a certain edge that makes it... quite unique among other Futurama episodes. Check it out.

This episode was great, why has it only got 80%?
Nixon was hillarious:

Nixon:"I'd no sooner give up this body than i would my little Dog Checkers"

Brilliance, pur brilliance.

"Leela, i've got a plan"
"I've got a better plan!"
