The first act was pretty okay.

Second act was much better.

I'm going to make a $100 bet that we're going to see Robot House on next week's episode.

Oh God dammit. And we didn't even get Dean Vernon, crap.

Forgettable. Not terrible, but that. A showreel of Bender's insensitivity and love for his posterior. Also, Leela sat on Fry's face. And biblical treasures aboard that cargo ship gave me a giggle.

Well, that was very funny. Space-sea was just too bizarre, though.

So, this was the emotional episode of the season. laff

I liked this episode. Some parts felt a little similar to Spanish Fry, but I love that episode so I'm okay with it.

I think my favourite joke was "those sound like one-eyed corpse screams". Also, I loved the Winnie the Pooh reference. Yeah, that's right. Loved it.

I don't know what to rate it. I'm not sure if happy with the episode, or if it was almost a little disappointed. The ending was a bit stupid in my opinion. That just might be me.

I'll have to rewatch, but I loved the second act.

The best way to do a final Bender episode. An asstastic 9.5/10.
And I laughed quite a bit I must say!

I actually think I finished the episode about 5 minutes earlier than those who watched it as it aired because of this certain upload website I use to watch latest eps... weird. But I most definitely wait to finish the episode before I judge it.

I was really impressed with this episode. The premise sounds utterly ridiculous (and it is), but seeing it play out was really fun. It made great use of the future and I appreciated the focus on the trio. But best of all, it was funny. There were quite a few parts that had me in laughter:

-The idea of the two gangs having almost-identical colours was great.
-"Leela, now's not the time to show me your boobs!"
-I liked how they didn't spend too long on the gang planet (because lets face it; they're hardly the most original characters).
-The stuff with Hedonismbot was disturbing.
-"I'm 40% back baby!"
-Bender sawing off Tinny Tim's legs and subsequently stealing his board was hilariously dark.
-"I didn't even know you had an ass!"
-The animation on the gas sea was beautiful.
-The ships all crashing at the end was a nice touch.

If there's anything I can be critical about, it's that the joke level seemed to drop once they met Tarquin. It was still tolerable, so it's no real big deal. However, the ending with "Assie" coming home made no sense at all. Like, none. I suppose you could argue that it was meant to be ridiculous, but the same could be said about all the magical-nonsense in Bender's Game and "Neutopia". And speaking of Neutopia, did anyone else think the Borax Kid looked smaller than his first appearance, or was that just me?

I may be in the minority, but I'm thinking this episode's worthy of an 8.5/10, or possibly even a 9. Really impressive send-off for the Bender episodes.

Alright. So I liked the episode. I think it might be my favorite of the season.

As my dad just said, "It's an episode about Bender's ass. Nothing more to expect. It was really funny, and may be my favorite of the season".

I can't help but agree. I thought it was funny and mildly entertaining. Nothing spectacular. But a really good episode.

The first act was pretty meh. I liked the Winnie the Pooh reference, and the spider references. The gang thing was alright. It would be a little better if we haven't had already seen a gang in 2D Blacktop.

The second act was perfect. It involved Bender searching for his body parts. I liked this act the most. Everything was spot on.

And the third act, was pretty good. I liked how his ass was so shiny. But it spinning back to him was kinda dumb. And the ending with the fireworks was really stupid. May it be the series' worst ending for an episode? That has yet to be seen. Maybe not.

For now, I'll give it a 8/10.

I'm glad the pacing was good with this as well. Nothing felt rushed.

*Edit* I wanted to change the rating to an 8/10. My points above still stand, but the episode itself is still kinda forgettable.

Bender mentioned that his ass has a hind-brain. While it doesn't allow his ass to think, it allows it to feel, and his ass missed Bender and understood on an instinctual level how wrong it was to listen to the bible.

I think we all considered giving it that. But the peer pressure made us give it a lower score.

After a rewatch, I've actually come to really liking this episode. While It could still use more laughs, I thought the story was done pretty well, with a great futuristic feel to it that has been missing from quite a few episodes this Season. And the ending with Bender's ass managed to somehow not feel that stupid and rushed, actually fitting with the story and somehow being slightly emotional.

Overall: 8.5/10, or 8/10 for the poll.

I know. The rest of this season sounds really promising. Got super high hopes for these future eps. Of course, my opinion could easily change. But still, it doesn't hurt to be a little positive. smile

Watching this straight after watching Calculon 2.0, where I wasn't laughing at all. 2 minutes in my sides are hurting. Winnie the Pooh reference FTW! Loved the whole thing. 8/10

This episode was as every bit as great and wacky as I hoped it to be, it had some really cool science-fiction stuff going on, really, really great animation, good pacing, lots of jokes and MAN was it dark in places. evil laugh

9/10

One complaint off the top of my head, and it's not really about the episode itself, but the title caption was way too similar to the one from "Möbius Dick," which was:

Featuring Sparky, the Invisible Elf

That just seemed kind of lazy, imo. hmpf

Notice in this episode that Fry realizes the mirror is there and distorting their vision of the gang members.  Leela decides they're going to switch their clothes and Fry only does so begrudgingly so that if they should be taken for asymmetrical gang members, then they can die together.

Basically, Fry is a quiet genius who always follows his friends to make sure they're okay when they do retarded things to get themselves killed.

Liked this episode a lot. Second one in a row with a "Good Old Futurama" feel to it.

Wonder why Leela thought turning their shirts inside out would reverse left-right colors of them. Actually, she'd have to flip the shirt front-back to do that.

Anyone catch a framegrab of what appears to be a Dr. Zoidberg with human horn poster on the inside of the door at the Porno Dealing Monsters store?

Probably my favorite of the season. I really liked that they brought back the organ dealer and the porno selling monster, I also liked that DiMaggio used his Tracy Morgan voice. The ending felt pretty rushed, but oh well

The inside of the shirts had opposite materials.  Why this was isn't adequately explained, but it's very clear when Leela flips Fry's shirt over his head.

"Justice does not work that way."
I found the gang scene very amusing with all the stupidity of Blibs and Cruds. Leela's out-of-nowhere moral lesson was nice conclusion. 'k...
Poor Tinny-Tim... laff It was so terrible it was very funny. That's basically his character and joke exceeded itself without being over-used yet.

"I can feel it in my weather-channel app."
"It has been microwaving longer I can remember."
I liked character Tarquin very much, over-stereotypical á la Futurama, like the gangs were.
Interstellar fog was nice analogy to a sea, but it was slightly too fictional imo. Impressive looking, though: asteroids, lightning, purple fog.

"This ain't a church, lady. Except for the tax purposes."
Ending of the episode was excellent, the epic emotional reunion worked well with the contrasst. That said, problem with it was the exaggerated quality of ass - shiny - in the first place. Other than that, other things didn't bother me since it was silly altogether.

Bender, Fry and Leela exploring all over the universe trying to get Bender completed again, showing their deep friendship, but Bender's selfishness too. Pacing was good and single plotline was basically necessary to this lengthy, versatile story. I liked this adventurous episode, 8/10.

It joins the ranks of the few season 7 episodes I actually like. 7B is turning out to be a huge improvement on 7A.

That said, its plotting wasn't hugely interesting and the ending was pretty weak. It just got by on the fact that it was actually funny and the jokes weren't cringey as hell like in most of season 7.

4/10 by Futurama's standards, but 8/10 by overall TV standards.
