This episode is generally regarded as a poor episode & true, it's not one of the best but it's damn good.

I love the references to the year 2000, at the beginning being toatlly wrong, for example cavemen robots in the car factory which is cool & The Crushinator makes another appearance in this episode. The stoyline is good & it's a really funny episode.

I think this episode was great. This show has shown great improvement since the first sries.
Many of the jokes are fantastic, and the 'style' joke is inspired.
Best episode EVER!

Although I rated the episode with 4, I think it deserves a 3.5... I really enjoyed the first half of the episode: the 20th century depictions were hilarious, as well as other snippets ("Does modern life make you tense and nervous??" - "Shut up and get to the point!"); the usual stuff that marks Futurama's style and makes fans of us all.
However, the plotline was severely gapped (the writers totally failed when they tried to make that who-dunnit twist at the ending) because there was too many misleading clues and a total lack of coherence in the character's actions (Flexo acts like he's guilty all the time, towards the end of the episode).
Flexo was good, although a little TOO similar to Bender (which figures, since they are "related") but I think he had a lot more potential ("You'd better do something about that face. AHAHAHAHAH!! Nah, really, you're a wonderful man.") and I wish he'd show up in a different context. One thing I DID enjoy was the fact that the episode didn't fall into the routine-soap-opera-drama jealousy when Flexo started hanging out with Bender and teased Fry all the time. If it all bogged down into a typical "my friend doesn't pay any attention to me any more" I would get really pissed - saturday afternoon shows are already filled with that kind of crap. At least, even if not at all successful, the episode's writer tried to do something different. But instead of turning it into a Sherlock-Holmes-type episode, it turned into a messy plot. At least Bender was the guilty one.;D

One of my favourite episodes. I love Flexo and the whole scene with Bender wearing different "disguises" was hilarious.

I actually quite liked this episode. As with the rest of this season, it had loads of great quotes etc.

Flexo was a great character too! I especially liked his "Nah Im kidding" bits!

This episode was good, not great, but good.
I found Flexo very annoying for some reason.
I loved the bits with Farnsworth and the Atom "Everyone get in bed with me"
And Zapp trying to open the envolope, but where was Kif?

"Is todays lifestyle making tense and impatient?"
