A very good episode oveall, with some great jokes, though the origin of the music was somewhat dissapponting. But I did get a little teary eyed at the ending. An easy 4.

The best of the season so far, an instant classic in my opinion! Lots of funny gags and for once this year I didn't see the ending coming. The ending was so good that it actually had me teary eyed. I had high hopes for this one from the beginning and it didn't disappoint!!

Another heart-warming character/plot revealing episode whose premise was creative (though quite anticlimactic) but whose plot was secondary to the character interactions and development; it's amazing how these characters can still be examined and developed even after so many episodes.
And, finally, an old Easter Egg from Seymour's first appearance is finally explained: In the original Seymour episode, Fry is shown being frozen in the cryogenics lab with his AND Nibbler's shadow under the desk (as a result of the Infosphere episode). BUT, upon entering the room, a SECOND Nibblonian antenna-eye can be seen in the garbage can. Tonight's episode resolved the question of "whose antenna is that?"; one has to wonder if this episode was planned from the point of the original writing of the Seymour episode (during the early 2000s, 7 or 8 years ago), or if the creators realized / remembered the Easter Egg and chose to write this episode recently to explain it.

Have not been this emotional at the ending of a "Futurama" episode ever. Not even "Jurassic Bark" and "Luck of the Fryrish" could do that for me. Glad we finally got closure on Fry and his mom's relationship and learned how she really felt about him. Amazing episode. You have to put this one in the top ten all-time.

One of the best this season. Although I didn't line the explanation the ending made up for it big time. Finally a five star episode first of the season

Easily on the top 20 episode list.
The pacing was fast like in the old days.
Each and every joke played.
Even the Seth cameo was funny!

Fry and his Mom both getting real closure through a dream she actually had in the past moved me deeply.
I cried like a baby at the end.

Mike Rowe finally proved his keep.

A 10/10.

This episode was a bit light on the comedy but the touching story more than made up for it. Seymour's return was nice to see and this episode let us get a deeper glimpse of Fry and his mom. The ending made this episode what it was and it's a prime example of what this show does so well. Suburb.

It made my wife cry and my 3 year old enjoyed it as well. Very well done.

Definitely one of the best plots of the season, although it tried too hard to match the emotion of "Fryrish" and "Bark." But I loved the look back at 1999.

I just wish it were funnier. Zoidberg's rickshaw was the only really good laugh.

A clunky, poorly paced story that tries to replicate the emotional impact of episodes like Jurassic Bark and Luck of the Fryrish, but pales in comparison.
Very few laughs to be had and the big reveal that it builds up to is disappointing and nonsensical. The only redeeming moment is the final scene with Fry and his mother, but even this highpoint feels unearned and emotionally manipulative because of the mediocrity that precedes it.
