Don't get me wrong, IAGDL was far worse than this one (its bad ending dragged it down from a below-average to arguably Futurama's worst episode). Of the classic Futurama episodes however, this one is one in the bottom 5. My main point is that a bad ending really drags down an episode very much (I think this is even more true with music albums). The final impression is the lasting one... I remembered that, as you said, this one had a lot of great scenes, which makes it all the more disappointing that the writers went for a "in your face!" ending.

Fair do's, I do see your point. There were a few weak endings in the original run, The Cryonic Woman being the worst offender (sorry to bring that up again laff). Sure I Dated A Robot could have had a better ending, it did seem a bit cheap I guess...

It's not one of the greatest eps ever, but I guess personally I enjoyed what came beforehand within the ep so much that I forgave it a little more than you, but it's fair enough if you felt it dragged it down more due to it having had so much great material beforehand...

Also, I still agree with my 2001 review; this ep was "averidge" laff...

Ah, considering the ending, not really. I know that it's not being completely fair, but if the ending is bad - and this one definitely was - that ruins your impression of the whole episode. Same problem with IAGDL.

IAGDL had a far worse ending than IDAR. Not that IDAR had a good ending, just that IAGDL is more comparable to AOTKA or TCW in terms of endings.

This is a pretty solid episode. I love the first act. I agree that the ending isn't great, but it could be a lot worse (see: a number of Season 6 episodes, apparently).

I don't know that a bad ending completely ruins an episode. Yeah, it brings down the rating a bit, but there is some pure genius in this episode and it has some nice romp-in-the-future moments.

7/10

A pretty good episode. The plot pretty much dumps on the whole Fry/Leela thing, which is okay with me. (Although it isn't okay with the shippers.....) It had some good gags, like seeing the internet again. And Fry had some pretty funny quotes that I still remember off of the top of my head as well. All in all, I'll use FishyJoe's "averidge" to best describe the episode.

7.5/10

I didn't love this episode, but it was decent. It had a few good jokes, but it was pretty much mediocre for me.

I'll never understand the dislike toward this episode; I think it's absolutely brilliant.
