oh god, that was last year's Xmas episode, wasn't it? That's the only episode of Futurama I categorically don't like.

I think you and me are gonna get on just fine  wink

Then I'm not the only one? Oh thank god.

If I could, I'd take myself on down to Annie's Forgettory and snip the links between that episode and my conscious brain.

Too true. They not only ruined the great run of Christmas (or Xmas) episodes but they also ruined the novelty of the Space Bees, the run of great trilogy episodes and basically ruined the faith I had in the upcoming half season...

Those were dark times, my friend. Dark times indeed.

And the songs were terrible. Yep, all of the novelty things about futurama that were awesome, they pooped all over in one episode. Pretty impressive when you think about it.

Well, look at it this way.  They have established an absolute floor for the show.  No matter how terrible a particular episode is, you can at least take comfort in the fact that it is not as bad as FHS was.

Hey folks, there's already a thread about the holiday episode; you don't have to post here.

Although I am among those who finds the metal-melting miracle that is Hermesí skin to be too farfetched, I do appreciate that the episode is well-structured enough to nicely set up that and other plot developments. However, what happened to Mark 7-G? It would seem that he was relieved of duty once Hermes rehired himself, but we see him still at Planet Express later on when he suggests getting an extendo-arm upgrade.

So...what if eating Hermesí skin only heated Roberto enough to weaken him, and then Mark 7-G surprisingly showed up and used an upgrade, or some ability that he already had, to defeat Roberto and save the day? Then Hermes would have had double comeuppance by having to thank both Zoidberg and Mark 7-G.

There then could be various reasons why Mark 7-G would leave and Hermesí status quo as Planet Expressí resident bureaucrat would be restored; perhaps he still finds some humorous reason to fire Mark 7-G anyway (maybe Hermes claims that the method Mark 7-G used to defeat Roberto was grossly inefficient and fires him, thus bringing the episode full circle), or perhaps Mark 7-G voluntarily leaves since his new upgrade or ability or whatever could be put to better and more efficient use elsewhere. Who knows, if Mecha-Hermesí body wasnít damaged too badly in defeating Roberto but Mark 7-G himself was, Mark 7-Gís brain could be put into Mecha Hermes and he can go off to fight bigger battles, bureaucratic and otherwise (and this might be too much at this point, but maybe Robertoís brain would somehow end up in Mark 7-Gís damaged body and get caught, escape, etc.; that robot body is a more appropriate size for our lovable lunatic, and since Roberto shaped Mecha-Hermesís head into his own image, he could do the same again here).

Ken Keeler has done it again.

When somebody mentioned in the commentary for this episode that a lot of reviews start with this exact phrase, I actually jumped.

In other news, I lower my score for this episode to an 8/10. I still love the premise, but the conclusion is a bit weak.

My favorite episode of last year!   Good to see the Paul Lynde sound-a-like character.  Liked Mark 7G, too!  He should come to the comics! Totally awesome and epic!  Hermes wanting robot parts to stay at the head of his game so he won't get fired was super cool!  Bender and Hermes had a little bit of an adventure together in this one, and that was fun!   Was Fry jealous, perhaps?  Zoidberg thinking Hermes' insults towards him was some kind of friendly 'bro-mance' thing had me on the floor!

Zoidberg's rendition of "Monster Mash" and calling it "Robot Brain" was what really stole the show!  Bender's exhuming of Roberto's body was just non-stop fun!  If you didn't like this episode, then you don't like nothin'!

5/5
