I must say I think this episode is rather underrated, it has some really great animation and lighting during that forest scene, a cool guest star, and some great jokes. It's a unique episode for Futurama, I think, because of the non-futuristic setting, but it worked. Great episode. Still not sure how I feel about the twist at the end.
TOTP gif from this episode.
Definitely agree with you on all points there. This is easily one of my favourites from 7A and it's a shame it seems to land in the dumpster of forgotten episodes for a lot of people.
I mean, I'm not gonna go marching around protesting that it's the greatest episode ever, (a few things fell flat here-and-there) but I can confidently say that "31st Century Fox" is an episode that grows on you.
