After a while without Futurama on fox, this great show returns. I enjoyed watching it very much. The story of getting super powers is fairly old, but the way that it was expressed was refreshing. Great show

good stuff.

excellent one-liners. plot was a little shaky, but worked quite nicely as a vessel for comedy.

Good, but not great. I would have expected a "superhero" episode to have a lot more references in in. All in all, not a very cerebral episode.

Well, I have just finished watching this episode. It was nice to see a new one on FOX for once. But the episode wasn't all that good.

The super hero bit was a pretty stupid idea. Bender was not Bender. Why is Bender joining Fry and Leela. I much rather see Bender steal stuff like he usually does instead of joining the good side. The begining of the show was kind of funny, but the ending was very BORING.

Overall, I guess I should appreciate what I get from FOX and be thankful that they are still showing new episodes. Hope next week's "Teenage Mutant Leela" is better...if they show it.

I would give it a 2 but because the beginning did have some...some pretty funny parts in it, I will be nice and give it a 3.

The mainstory was quite good. A miracle cream that give superpowers is one of those ideas Futurama is perfect for. Imagine this concept on Simpsons (although that's probably not far away). If you're familiar with superhero shows and comics lots of references will ring true, even crappy 70's movies are referenced. ;)

Leela, Bender and Fry was good as heroes, nothing wrong there. Best ... theme song ... ever!

The sidestory with Leela's parents was the weak spot of this show. I think that could've been written alot better, without Leela's parents constantly talking about how Leela must be embarrased, must hate them, blah-blah-blah. Enough already, once or twice is all it takes for us to get it.

Morris going on a fishing trip was funny though.

The Zookeeper, yeah alright he'll pass.

Overall, above average, but not the best of the season.
