There was already a thread for this ep here, although admittedly it did go very off-topic very quickly...

edit - There was also another thread for this ep here too which got less off-topic...

Hmmm...don't know why I didn't find those during my exhaustive search. Eh, if Randi or one of the other mods wants to close this thread, then close away.

But mine's the only one with a poll...

Perhaps some merging could be done, like maybe have that second thread I linked to merged with this one so we keep the poll? Either that or add a poll to the other one, whatever the mods want to do...

It seems easier to add the poll to the other one IMO.

WMIBACIL is definitely one of the highlights of the first couple of seasons... but has been somewhat eclipsed by episodes like RTEW and TLPJF. It's sort of a forgotten gem, really.

I love this episode. So many jokes, so much bizarre alien sci fi fun, and of course, Zoidberg.

One of Futurama's highlights for me.
Alone the idea of mixing "Cyrano der Bergerac" with Star Trek's "Arena" is just hilarious... wink

Best Zoidberg episode in the series. It was real neat seeing his homeworld and culture, and Fry's involvement in the story was great. Also, I love the entire scene at the gym. big grin

No, it's easiest to do nothing, which in this case I think I will do.

I went through both those threads and they were not the typical "review" threads we do now. One was mainly just quotes and the other was...disturbing. I've seen old posts of mine I cannot unsee! no no

Anyways, back to the episode. This one is a great one. I don't believe it would qualify for an underrated episode because I think the general concensus is that this episode was very good to great, from its saucy humor to Trek influence. Is is definitely one of my favorites...I know I say that about a lot of episodes, but I mean it with this one lol. Probably my favorite of that season at least, I will have to check what else aired that year.

I would usually wait to rate an episode so I can watch the episode again, but I know I would give this one a 10/10. I quote lines from this episode all the time, mainly I CHALLENGE YOU TO CLAW PLAW (sp?)!
Also...Who's the tough guy now Vinny?

Speaking of which, I really really HATE that they took that scene with Vinny out on the reairs because of time constraints. mad

9/10 from me. It's one of the Classic Episodes from Season 2.

Everything was well-paced, seeing Zoidbergs homeworld was a nice addition. And I loved learning about the decapodians. Although, I saw the thing with Edna coming from a mile away.

And the ending. Was just awesome. It may not have been the best ending, but was definitely one of the more darker ones.

I'm curious, what is "St. Jonah's Morphine for Children" a reference to?

Also, Saint Jonah works because of the Bible story of Jonah. Swallowed by a whale and all, bit of a nautical theme.
