Actually that play on words is at LEAST a quadra entendre (actually I made that up and it's an quadruple entendre) .. which is still rather impressive.

As listed above me in the previous post, I'm sure the "junk" is refrencing every single one of the uses of that word in this situation.

Last Weeks episode was worse but this is still mediocre, even by new Futurama standards. There were a few decent jokes and I appreciated that it didn't throw in too much relationship shlock but it fell flat. The muscular woman seemed to pander to the "alternative" hentai crowd, which people should be proud not to be a part of.

 I enjoyed the ending, despite it making no sense, and it ripping off Venture Brothers.

5/10 worst episode yet, Futurama ruined forever, seppuku imminent, ect..

There's nothing wrong with muscular woman... and I don't see any indication that they were meant to be associated with any form of hentai. hmpf

Glad someone else mentioned that... my thoughts we're almost instantly... Venture Bros. already did that... and then.. waaaay better to boot.
And on top of it... the Venture Bros. at least mention Kafka, (so did Home Movies) here Mike Rowe takes full credit and pretends this is his original idea.

Let's make that "Sweet quadra entendre of the ganja!" and submit it to the Futurama writers.

Send it care of Pumpkin and Muchado.

Zing, showed them what for!!

B/c it's SOOO true.

What an awful movie.. I know of no one besides 'folks on the internet' that actually liked that abortion of a film.

All my friends and relations who've seen it (that I know of who made it through) say it sucked or was boring.

I doubt the moderators of this forum would appreciate me linking to the type of pornography in question of which the plot of this episode revolved around.

A certain popular internet forum thoroughly enjoyed the episode for reasons I suspect this one did not.

What happens upon the third viewing? Would we die a horrible death? Is this like space jelly?


I think I'd only rewatch this one to hear the commentary to be honest.  roll eyes

Rumor says upon third viewing, you will get raped by a giant butterfly.
I certainly will not risk to find that one out....

Does anyone else think that the scene where Leela walks in on Fry and Amy in bed is the reason for Leela slapping Fry while reading Bender's predictions about their future at the end of Overclockwise?

Basically guessing that Bender predicted something like "You will walk in on Fry in bed with Amy"... Which caused her to slap him.

I don't know really. I actually like to pretend the ending of Overclockwise didn't happen, because it does poke holes in other episodes. (For example, Leela should have known that Fry was alive in FOAB, but didn't.)

"The Butterjunk Effect"


Bender and Kif watch on as Leela and Amy fight over a butterfly pheromone-covered Fry


I can agree with others that this is the worst of the season (so far). It's not horrendously bad but it does suffer from being extremely lackluster in parts and unfunny at other places. The plot is very weak which doesn't help and the jokes do come but some just don't hit the mark. It was structured well however with only the last three or four minutes being what let the episode down. Characterization was generally on (besides the girls but that was for the plot, so I can't really complain about that...)

The one saving grace of this episode was Bender. If he was not featured in this one (and he easily could have taken a backseat much like the Professor) I would have defiantly lowered my rating by at least half a point (probably more). He provides the most laughs which you can probably see from below...


* The voice-actor line seemed a little forced but was still pretty funny
* Jill Talley's character was quite good (maybe it's because I've always loved her as Karen in SpongeBob...)
* I enjoyed the return of Sportsbot 5000...
* "Let's go already!"

Amy: "Come on, we've got flowers to suck dry..."
Grand Butterfly Curator: "Suck 'em, burn 'em, as long as they're not butterflies I don't give a grand crap!"

* "Look. The Hammer's already out, I gotta smash something"
* Bender gasping
* "Hooray! Yeah! I don't give a crap!"


Probably not worst episode ever material but it's still not great. It's funny in places while terrible in others. The story is well executed in parts while not in others. It's very blotchy and over the place in terms of quality. It does explore Leela and Amy's relationship fairly well but I still can't really give it any more points for that. There's always going to be an episode like this every half season ("The Futurama Holiday Spectacular", "All the Presidents Heads" and I'm hoping it stays this one) so I really can't complain about one below average episode every year...

Hold on, maybe Leela was just so caught in the moment, that she didn't even stop back to think about the note.  roll eyes

Or maybe they both decided to try doing things more differently than what they've read, for a better future together.  big grin

As discussed in the shippers thread I think the best way to go about the end of Overclockwise is to assume that what Bender wrote out was a guideline in a sense. Not a count-for-count detail of what happens to Fry and Leela for the rest of their lives. Just a possible outcome with things that might happen.

You could also assume that what Bender wrote wasn't what he actually predicted at all. The scene inside Niagara Falls between Fry and Bender seemed to imply that Bender didn't foresee a happy ending for Fry and Leela, so it's possible that Bender wrote down a false prediction with a happy ending in order to make Fry and Leela feel optimistic about their future and keep them together. Which would mean that Bender did a nice thing for them. Yeah, think about that. tongue

I don't think that was necessarily the writers' intent, but it is an interesting possible interpretation.

I made that suggestion earlier in this very thread.
