It has been said that mermaids do not exist--and, until just now, no thread in which to discuss this episode existed, either. Now that I've righted that wrong, I'm off to find me a mermaid.

I love the fishing scene. But after that first act, it moves from fantastic to merely good. And for that, it receives an 8/10

I agree with UnrealLegend, but find the fishing scene, as well as the scene underwater before Bender's fish gets away, so excellent that the whole episode deserves a 9/10. There's some funny, funny stuff afterwards, too, like Bender's laws of science line and Zoidberg's antics (which are especially amusing in this episode compared to the norm).

That's a good point. Zoidberg was great in this episode.
I also enjoyed the justification of how the mermaids evolved. Caffeine sounds about right. :D

I enjoy the anti-pressure pill and the laws of science and Zoidberg's house too...

"Have you taken your pressure pills?"
"Yes.  Stop asking."

8/10.   On any other show it would be a 10/10, but because its Futurama the standards are much higher.

Some funny moments, but I really didn't see the point in the video explaining how Atlanta came to be. I just didn't find it funny. Still, some good moments and jokes came together to form a solid 8/10.

I love this ep, the whole first act with the fishing was just one classic joke after another. Nothing miss-fired and the whole Planet Express crew were playing off each other while all having their own funny moments. From Leela bringing up crates of boots from the depths, to Amy's sunburn, and Bender catching Fry's small intestine, at all worked wonderfully, and of course then there was Hermes Manwich!...

Once they got below the sea the good jokes continued, and I love the Professors no excuse for ocean rudeness line. Dr Zoidberg's under the sea house was also great. I liked Umbriel too, there are some good scenes with her and Fry...

As has been pointed out, the episode takes a slight turn for the worst when the Atlanta story came into it. The episode didn't plummet to the low depths that the characters were physically at, but the extremely high watermark of quality didn't quite sustain...

The whole thing resolved pretty nicely though, and I loved it when the Professor proclaimed he was bored and stormed off. The cigar under water raising further questions was another fantastic joke, and the very ending with the fish getting weighed and the call-back to the manwich was also classy...

Overall, because so much of this ep was absolutely incredible and it got back on track with a good ending, I award it...

I think this is one of my more favorite underrated episodes of Futurama (I believe it is underrated anyhow, although I am happy to see you guys giving it such high marks). It was the one episode that I could quote in its entirety in my head, which I put to good use during those boring college discussions. Yes, I played this entire episode in my head once. Haha, good times.

I haven't seen this in a while so I will not rate it yet, but I liked everything about it - the physics jokes, the Star Trek sounds, the emergence of Manwich jokes, and especially the whole Fry/Umbriel sequence at the end :laff:

One of my favorite lines in the whole series has got to be:

"Why couldn't she have been the other kind of mermaid, with the fish part on top and the lady part on the bottom??"

:laff: Classic Fry.

One of the weakest episodes of Season 2 for me. It was good, and had lots of nice jokes/cameos to be found. But it almost kind of fell flat for me somewhere along the way. The first act was going pretty good. But then The underwater scenes were good, but I didn't care much for the mermaid civilization and all that stuff. Seeing Zoidbergs home being burned down underwater made perfect sense, but was just hilarious at the same time. Alas, that didn't save this episode from the rating I'm about to give it. I did particularly like the ending though, alot actually.
