Haha, Inquisitor Hein, that could definitely be the case. They would be well-justified.

I'm surprised that there are so many (relatively) negative reviews so far - personally this episode rubbed me the right way, as it were.
Anyway, IMO: I'd put it as among the top most-classic-Futurama-feeling-thingy of the new run; I don't think the characters were too OOC - I certainly don't think Leela was as OOC as she was last week; the gags were funny - I did sort of see the Scooby Doo thing coming but not that it makes it necessarily bad; I don't think the shippy-side was treated like too much trash; and further more that's now two episodes in a row where I've thought the pacing's been spot-on; something's seemed rushed or abrupt.

So I thought - all in all - a very good episode, one that I'll happily watch again and again :)

9/10

I'm with you 100% Zed. I am surprised at how passive people are being about this episode. This has definitely been one of my favorites of this season. What sold me is how well paced it was. And what's with complaints about the third act? The plot is resolved even with time for a joke at the end, it's not rushed and it's not like the interesting part happens at the very end. This was a solid episode. The writing, the jokes, the characters, everything was awesome. I felt right at home with this one, compared to Mobius Dick, which I have mixed feelings on.

While I do agree that with many people that the Fry/Leela thing is just a crapshoot at this point, I didn't let that effect the viewing of the episode. Personally I feel that if you stuck this in with the original run, it would fit in perfectly. I liked it that much.

I feel like everyone has just gotten so nit-picky about the new episodes. While I don't feel they're on par with the original, I need not forget that it's been 8 years since The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings aired. I think the show is doing pretty well considering the gap and I'd watch these episodes over and over again lest I had to watch anything from the Simpsons the past few years.

9/10

Mr. Peppy is adorable!

totally agree. one thing that I liked about this episode was the subtle development of Fry about how he doesn't want to eat an animal before it's born.  Remember in The Problem With Popplers, he, Leela and so many others ate like a whole bunch of unborn babies.  I guess that experience made him change his views on what to eat.

That's an interesting way to interpret it. I wan't really sure what to think of the continuity related to this before but I like your reasoning.

I think the one less "bone" joke may simply be another Penis joke.

In my species, there's no bone in the penis. I'm not so sure about yours, though ...

The males of most mammal species possess a baculum, but male humans do not for some reason. I've heard it speculated tongue-in-cheek in some religious circles that it may have been the "rib" that God took from Adam in order to make Eve.

Girls are not made from penises. Girls are made, if anything, of anti-penises.

Actually, when all of us humans were conceived, we were female; it's only the addition of hormones later that made us male. In men, the penis is an elongated clitoris, and the ridge underneath the penis is what's left of a scrunched-up vagina.

the other thing I like was the throwback to The Cryonic Woman.  Bender scares an old man and he suffers a heart attack.  Bender pushed him back in the freezer and says, "They'll probably have a cure for that in the future."  the scientist says, "We have a cure for it now."  Fry at the beginning of this episode uses said cure.  Totally liked that scene.

Thinking about this, do you think that was actually intentional or a happy coincidence? Sometimes I don't think they are as clever as we assume they are... :confused:

I hope they can invent cheesecake that helps you lose weight and raises your IQ.

I probably shouldn't mention delicious dessert treats anymore, considering what happened last time I brought up ice cream.

Speaking of which, I hope I bump into my ex outside the Krispy Kreme store tomorrow.  I haven't had those in ages...

Make up your mind! :p
