Fry was also an asshole-ish in 'Future Stock'. tongue

But at the least he did better himself in that episode... which ironically made things worse for all the others.

Saw this again the other day, I do love this ep. Classic material, loved Dr Zoidberg turning the steering wheel to go faster. One of the best Amy eps, and with what has happened since I don't think they could ever repeat something like this again which makes it all the more special...

Fry's head on Amy's body and all the humorous situations were great. I liked Fry's character regardless of if he was being a man-bitch at times. Only downside was the ending, but not terrible or anything. I'd say it's a 9.5 but not quite 10 material, so seeing as the poll won't accommodate that I'm going against the rules of rounding and voting...

9/10

Really? Do you mean the scene where Leela "clamjams" Amy or the final one with Fry, Leela and Bender? Because I have to say I really like the later, generally the whole parts with Bender's dating service were awesome.

I mean the very ending where you think it ends, but then it comes back again. Wasn't too keen on that, seemed a bit cheap to me. I don't hate it, it's forgivable, especially seeing as the episode on the whole is pretty near faultless, but I feel it could have ended a little better...

... wait a minute! I still have to decide though whether that makes seafood erotic or sex scary.

Those two things are not mutually exclusive, ya' know smile

He was... kind of.  He just became very full of himself (and **it) but he was never unkind to the others, and he did his best to make amends in the end.

I must say that I love the psyche-out ending, with the heart closing in on Bender's face as he's making excuses for his horrible dating service (or whatever he was saying to Leela when she was complaining about her Valentine's Day date). I have to disagree with Otis. I love that! The cheesey harp music vaguely reminded me of bad 70s sitcoms, like "The Love Boat" or some such nonsense, that I ate up as a kid (TV was my babysitter). And then that enclosing heart--reminded me of "I Love Lucy."

I loved this episode. I found Fry and Amy's fling not compelling at all--really, not much chemistry between them, and their relationship had not been built up and developing like the one between him and Leela--so, I didn't mind seeing it end. I guess that was the point; there was really nothing substantial between them, except physical attraction. And such a connection usually doesn't last much longer than the time it takes to groggily fumble around for your clothes and mutter "That was nice. I'll call you later."

The car buying scene was just golden. I loved Amy's bad imitation of Victor's accent; the background gag of Victor and Malfunctioning Eddie dancing when they realized how much money they could score off of a clueless customer; Eddie's head exploding; the luxury car full of eagle parts. And on and on.

And the Valentine's Day dinner scene was hilarious. Zapp's date just chewed up the scenery--what is that "lady's" name, btw? I loved the close-up of the amorous looks exchanged between Sal and Petunia. And on and on. Yeah, that's shorthand for "I'm too tired to write something more coherent."

Oh, and the ending. Great use of Bender's recalled ass. I love when an episode is bookended by the same story element. Bender did get his comeuppance for scamming people out of so much money--I think the writers purposefully set up a badly misbehaving character for some kind of punishment/humiliation at the end. Like, their bad deeds do have consequences. I just loved the ending. "Watch the neck, watch the neck!" "My ass, my ass, my beautiful--KABOOM!"

That quote is probably not verbatim, but the TV is occupied by husband playing video games, and even if it wasn't, I am too tired to review anyway.

9/10

The psyche-out ending is funny, I agree. I liked the slightly condescending/satirical attitude of this whole episode towards dating services and V-Day in general. It was funny and very Futurama-esque. And I agree that there really isn't any chemistry between Fry and Amy. Their relationship was, to say the least, quite superficial.

This episode deserves a 8/10.

I liked seeing Fry and Amy together. It was pretty cute/funny, I guess you could say. But it definitely wasn't the episodes strongest point.

After they broke up, it got better and better as it went along. Also, did anybody think that Fry's voice sounded like Zoidbergs when he was yelling "Nooo" in slow-mo?

And yes, the subplot/ending with Bender was pretty much classic right there.

So I wouldn't go out to say this is a classic episode. But damn it, this was  close to being a Classic.

7/10, mostly because I think that Amy and Fry are a terrible couple. It was a decent episode overall but definitely not one of my favorites.
It got better as it continued, but I can't say it ever got great.
