My friend watched the episode, and then got really pissed off at me because he couldn't get the song out of his head.  Just wait till I make him watch Repo Man. Fortunately, I know the cure.

I am losing my mind.  I've missed yet another "new" futurama episode.  Can I beg Fox to just give me the DVD's now?

My thoughts on it?  Well, I might have liked if I saw it!

I even miss the 2PM epidoes on TBS now!

 I'm just not meant for TV.

"even though the prez had a center mounted slot-load optical drive/gun holder"

It's actually a tray loader.  Anyway, I have to make a comment on the episode now I guess.  There were some funny moments:

Calculon: I just wish we could see this Bender I keep on hearing about... they say he's the greatest!
Zoidberg networking

However, overall it seemed like a "meh" episode.

The only thing I didn't like about this episode is that it followed 2 other Bender episodes..there is such a thing as too much Bender.

What should i say about this ep? It was one of the worst in the 5th season. Bender was loud and disgusting. I think the target was to make a satire against soup operas and violence in tv but it didn't work

Er, your slip is showing...
What is a "soup opera," anyway?

I think, that since it was the Act 2/3 break-scene, Sky decided to remove it because UK TV doesn't follow a three act schedule. Why they couldn't have had the break between Acts 2 and 3 as the 15 minute break, I don't know.

As for the episode, I actually rather liked it, if only for the execu-bots. I liked it better than many other eps this season, but not as much as "The Sting" or "The Why of Fry".

I thought this was a class ep, lots of funny Bender moments. Much better than Bend Her, equal as Obsolutly Fabulous.

I thought this episode was ok, but I enjoyed Obsoletely Fabulous and Bend Her more. It did have some great moments like the coolometer thing and the hypno toad TV show. Perhaps I didn't appreciate it as much as I would have because the final episode was on after (which by the way was fantastic!) Can't wait to get the DVD set for these episodes.

This is an awesome ep, and better than I expected. I always love Cubert and Dwight anyway, and seeing them teamed up with Tinny Timbot was neat. One of the highlights for me was the execubots, and their irrational stupidness. It felt like a good dig at Fox, very satisfying and funny to watch. Bender's speech that he's had too much of himslef, and his behavier on TV was ironically funny too. I liked it a lot more than 'Bend Her' and 'Obsoletely Fabulous', clool ep  cool

I would tell you what I remember about the episode, but I can't, because I have... amnesia!

Honestly though, at first view I didn't think too much of it, but now that i watch it again it's quite a good episode.

Good episode. I actually liked Cubert and Dwight in this one. It has it's flaws, but it was executed in a good, unique way that helps keep its score in the good zone.

8/10
