Thoughts and opinions on the latest episode.

I rather liked it, the entire "team building" exercise seemed like a cop-out until there actually was a murder  evil laugh

Actually, the time traveler seems to have only given it a 8/10. Too bad, I was expecting better.
Whatever. As they say, never question a time traveling forum member.

Either that, or Imy is one of the show's makers who happens to already have this episode on a DVD.

It may have leaked a few days early.

A entire HD copy of a Venture Bros. episode did earlier this year.

Many journalists and reviewers get advanced digital copies of episodes off popular shows from the networks to write reviews in advance.
This is my guess on how these leaks happen so much.

Also Zapp is just in an advanced timezone.

I'm placing my bets on no one...except the Team Building Guy...and maybe Jackie Jr. Oh, and the monster probably.

I already found a couple of downloads of it, but seeing as it's already going to air in 10 minutes, I'm just going to go ahead and watch the TV version.

Guys, I think next time, wait until the episode airs in the USA until deciding to make a Review Thread.

Because 1: Downloading/Piracy is illegal, and isn't allowed to be discussed on this forum, and sometimes could result into a immediate ban.

And 2: I don't wanna be spoiled on what happens before I watch it!

Also 3: I called these next threads. Not a big deal with me, but still, when someone calls it, you can't go against it lol  laff

Happy to see it got a 10/10 from someone....I knew it was good to have my hopes set high for this episode!

I'd definitely reccommend watching it on a TV set if you can, because I noticed some quite great changes of scenery which should look much better in HD.

Box Incorporated: The callback to the "Not sure if..." doesn't detract from the quality of the episode, trust me. In fact, a lot of "not sure if..."s ensue.

Someone tweeted @slurmed saying the new episodes appear on the French iTunes before they even air in the US, dunno if he/she was telling the truth or not but that's probably how the episode got leaked.

I'm no oracle. In fact, as fun as being one this week has been, I'd rather avoid making the same mistake and watch it alongside everyone else. Being first ain't always fun!

Secondly, no full-frontal, pervert! But there is some hot kissing.

Thought the Bender and Fry (or should I say "Frender"  laff) trust situation at the end was hilarious. At some points before someone was eaten by the monster, I was expecting that person to be eaten, but I got fooled and the other person who I wasn't expecting to be eaten...well you know the rest. 8/10, the writers are keeping this hot streak. I want to see if Eric Horsted could continue the streak next week.

I didn't like this one that much.  The whole thing was so predictable. 6/10

WOW! I think this was a bit better than last week's episode. This was the best of the Season. I couldn't believe how good this was. Nice well pacing, Lots of plot twists, Seeing Frender (Benders Game special feature selection thing), having the whole trust thing play out so well, this was definitely really, really, great. I thought them referencing facebook again was dumb, and Leela eating Fry's kidney was pretty stupid.

But all in all, this was a great episode. For now, I'll give it a 9/10. But it is so close to a 10/10.

That's a stupid reason. Why would anyone in their right mind click on this thread without expecting spoilers? I personally never enter a review thread until I've seen the episode.

On the topic of the episode, I thought it was pretty good. (If for some reason someone's obliviously reading this without having seen the episode, be warned that I'm not censoring any spoilers.)

I'd compare this episode with "Calculon 2.0" in that it didn't really have anything about it that irritated me. Funnily enough, it's by the same writer as well.

I was little grossed out by Leela eating Fry's kidney, which felt like it was mostly there for shock value. The jokes around it were pretty funny though, (such as the Professor getting a burger-kidney transplant) so I won't hold it against the episode too much. The rest of the first act was solid. I enjoyed the appearance of Nine and his many feet gestures, as well as the cameo from Wernstrom's pet fish. All the trust issues were entertaining, but they did feel a tad forced.

As for the whole alien-on-the-ship thing, I was impressed that it managed to constantly surprise me without becoming predictable. The fact that it actually ended up being a trust-building program after all took me by surprise, since I wasn't expecting a repeat of what the fake Professor claimed earlier.

One thing the episode nailed was tension. I was at the edge of my seat during the scene with Hermes and Zoidberg in the vents, and it was funny having Leela and Amy smack the crap out of Hermes' dangling legs. The scene with Bender and Fry outside the ship was... weird. I'm not sure exactly how Fry manged to wear Bender like an Iron Man suit, but it was amusing to see, and I've always secretly wondered what it'd look like if someone were to be inside Bender like that. Now that I've told that secret, nobody better post that on Facebook. mad

Additionally, I liked the nicknames "Friender" and "Lamy", mainly because they're almost opposites of each other (okay, not really).

The resolution was neat, and I like how Dan McMasters didn't consider the fact that Fry and Bender wouldn't believe him (I sure as hell wouldn't have). It was relieving to see that there wasn't any bullshit Deus Ex Machina where the eaten crew were teleported through a portal in the alien's stomach into a magic room where they all survived or something like that, which I was expecting.

I'll score this one an 8/10. It's a pretty solid effort that had pitch-perfect pacing.

Now this is what I can call a great Futurama episode. The plot was sci-fi, every member of the crew was used perfectly, nearly every joke here worked, there were multiple plot twists and fake outs everywhere, it was just simply a hilariously great episode. Even the ending, which I really thought was going to be done really lazily and or awkward, was actually done in a funny enough way that it was satisfying to sit through, despite how obvious it was.

Overall: 9/10, funniest episode of the Season by far.

And now if you excuse me, Frender Frender Frender, Frender Frender Frender.

This episode was really funny, but I thought the ending wasn't too great. I liked the plot and it was interesting. The part with "Frender" was hysterical. I loved it and it was probably my favorite joke of this season.

The ending I just didn't like that much.

I gave it a 8/10 but it was extremely close to being a 9/10

I've been hearing rumors on other fourms that PIRACY is actually what really helped killed the shows new run off faster than anticipated by CC's demo. department.

If I may break it down:
Young people - like Futurama - download it free - only lasts 7 seasons.
Old farts - like the Simpsons - still buy cable  - 25+ seasons.
Me - buys Futurama DVD's for all - feels like douche when show is canned next year.
