Certainly a decent episode. The pacing was better then other episodes of post-cancellation futurama, but what's the deal with all the F-bombs?

I thought the first act could have been better, but everything was uphill from there. Some great and subtle references back to early Futurama, and some great scenes and animation on the moon. I'm a big fan of the Robot Mafia too, and there was some great mafia humor in this one. Personally I didn't like the f-bombs until the perfectly placed "JOHN F***ING ZOIDBERG" which was undoubtedly one of the funniest things ever to come out of Futurama. The last one was unnecessary though. I don't expect much more bleep comedy in Futurama after this, but I really enjoyed the plot

...And suddenly it makes sense why Comedy Central decided to re-order the episodes for this half of the season.

This was a pretty good episode for fans, but it would have been a terrible season opener, with it's focus on side characters and in-jokes.

Best episode of the season. I have no idea why this is rated so low so far. Not sure why people are complaining about a few curse words either. Its just a dig at all the mafia movies.

This was a pretty good episode. I'm a little disappointed that we didn't really get to see the inner pathos of Clamps -- I was hoping to learn more about the guy. Ah well, it was still fun. Not sure how I feel about the bleeping out stuff, but the episode was good enough I'll let it slide.

Very funny and a good solid plot. Im not sure why people have rated it so low so far, because the swearing wasn't that bad at all. Someone above said it was focused on in jokes for fans, but i think a non-fan would have found this just as funny.

Not the best of the season, maybe the worst. Nonetheless, that is a good thing, because I enjoyed the episode. Like someone else mentioned on Peelified, it reminded me of a season 2 episode such as 'the deep south' or 'raging bender'.

I loved the southern town on the moon, and wished that we got to see more of it. I especially enjoyed John Zoidberg's role in this episode. It was good to see him finally kick some arse.

Do the Zoidberg, do the Zoidberg.

Top Notch episode. The Billy West gag was absolutely hilarious.
