Decent re-PILOT. It had some good laughs and I enjoyed the Bender moments. Do the Bender, Do The Bender!

Rebirth

I enjoyed this episode but not as much as I did on my original viewing and it's re-watch. I guess the jokes sort of wore thin and the plot was essentially nothing too special. I thought the characterization was on and the plot twist was great but I thought they were trying too hard to make it a memorable and special episode that the 'Futurama-ness' of it drifted off. I defiantly didn't dislike it, I just didn't like it as much as I used to...

Score: 7.5/10.0

Yah, I found it to be quite neutral also. Still, a solid episode with some solid humor, but not all of the jokes were solid. I liked the Bender dancing scenes a lot also. It was sorta like a second pilot.

Like what SGB said, it was a good episode. I like Benders dance moves.

Let me elaborate, I liked how the professor told us the real end. Bender stops dancing and kills the Cyclopes monster. The funnest part was at the end when Bender decided to stop dancing and in a few minutes later he starts dancing.

I espially like that episode for using the long overdue plot "A machine that does not (immediatelly) know it is one".
It was imhO a great idea using Leela-Bot dealing with the identiy crisis of such a machine, and also distracting from Fry-Bot, saving the discovery of his machine nature as some last-minute shock effect.

For what it had to do, this was a great episode. The story is very well-written, and it manages to tell a lot of story in such a small amount of time. 8/10

What I wanted to see was how Scruffy managed to get the outside of PE spotless again, and get rid of the pieces of the PE ship and the Nimbus... And when the Nimbus hits, the blast seems to hit a few buildings, what happened to the people in those?

I'm so happy I didn't have to wait long to see this episode after I was done with Into the Wild Green Yonder.  laff

With the show coming out of retirement, this episode is definitely a classic.  OK maybe not Roswell That Ends Well, The Luck of the Fryish or The Late Philip J. Fry type of classic, but surely one that steered the series into a new direction while maintaining course.  More on that oxymoron later.

Immediately from the start of the episode, we see the quasi-maniacal, doomsday device loving Doctor Farnsworth working on something that surely piqued the interest of viewers.  And then we're shown what happened to the PE crew after impact on Earth.  Thanks to the assumed advances in stem-cell research, the crew returns from the "primordial soup" relatively intact.  All except Leela - which I knew from the start would bother me the entire episode.

The distraught Fry attempts to bring back Leela by "downloading" her thoughts and memory into a robot he purchased, which even took Leela's shape as a human.  But ultimately I felt "empty" inside.  I know that is pretty vague, but watching "robot Leela's" reaction to her comatose Leela just freaked me out.  We saw Fry get Leela "back", but what we're seeing as the viewer just isn't so.  And now imagine for a second that you were "robot Leela", intact with her old thoughts and memories, looking at her corpse.  We all knew that it was a farce, and it was tough to watch Fry having to cope with that.  At the end of the day, Robot Leela was an abomination - a counterfeit Leela that shouldn't exist.  But it feels just like her... shouldn't that be enough?  Can't Fry have his cake AND eat it too?  I honestly don't know how I would approach that predicament if that were ever my life.

Thankfully as the episode develops, we learn more about what happened after the PE crew crashed into the Earth.  Leela's body was actually saved by Fry, as he successfully sacrificed his own to try and save her.  A distraught Leela, learning that Fry was utterly destroyed, sought out and purchased a Robot Fry and, again, downloaded his memory into the robot mainframe. 

We, the viewers, now see how the love story-arc theme between Fry and Leela will develop. 

It's evident that Fry and Leela could not bear to live without each other, and the writers worked to implement this "change of heart" to the series into Rebirth.  With the rest of the crew returned, and Fry reborn, we the viewers see which direction the writers will take us.  It is now clear that there will indeed be a budding relationship, with its highs and lows, between Fry and Leela.  This is a stark contrast to Futurama's prior life on Fox - where we saw Leela consistently reject Fry, even telling him that they'll be "friends" at best.  It seems that the end of Into the Wild Green Yonder changed of all this.

The show is back with the same old crew (maintaining course) but now with a developed and profound relationship between Leela and our protagonist Fry (new direction).  As a sucker for a love story, this is truly a welcomed change to quite possibly one of the best-animated shows ever to grace the airwaves.

7/10

I liked the ep, but it had too much melodrama. It had some good gags in there, but was pretty decent, not a bad comeback episode at all. Although it could have been better.

I found this to be a great way to start a new batch of seasons. It reintroduced all the characters to us, explained how the crew survived the ending of ITWGY, had a cool Sci-Fi plot, and all the while managed to fit some comedy in the mix. I gave it a 9/10 in the end. Some of that grade is just because it is the first episode of the new run, which automatically makes it cool, and I cut them some slack on it's writing as well, because this was the first 30-minute episode they had written in quite some time. But, the rating is also what it is because it established Fry and Leela's relationship rather well, and built alot of tension throughout the episode about what would happen to Leela. It may not be one of my absolute favorite episodes, but It stillw as awesome to me.

9/10

This was a nice comeback, Futurama. It's too bad it couldn't last longer. frown

Anyway, I really liked this episode. I didn't exactly like the first act too much, but I did enjoy the rest of the episode. The whole "Leela-and-Fry-are-actually-robots" thing was a very clever concept. This truly is a great episode in my opinion.
