Not a bad episode at all.  Thoroughly enjoyable.  Thus far I've been impressed w/ season three.  Also, I'd say question of a Kip/Amy relationship has been answered definitively.  And for those of you who think the Simpsons is losing it, tonights was rather funny, in a couple sick and twisted ways.

Yes, i really enjoyed the new episode. It's about time though...jeeze.  Fox seems to think that we have something better to do than watch Futurama...oh how wrong are they? Well, we have more flexo in the next episode it seems..and it coincides well with the month of "Forbidden Tales of Robot Lust" on my futurama calendar.

We're not allowed to talk about episode downloads here. But Fox will be doing reruns until at least October, and they only have like 15 season 3 episodes to show. So it's bound to be rerun eventually.

As for the episode, I don't really have much to say. I think it's the funniest ever-- plenty of sexxy Zapp action, and so many quotable lines it's unbelievable.

Brilliant ep, liked it.  Especially the bit where Amy had more brains than Leela for once, just before she rescues Kif.

I think Amy has more brains than anyone gives her credit for. She mastered piloting the ship in two hours, while it took Fry two years. And she was the first to figure out that Bender was sleep-bending.

I think Amy should go back to her slutty moron ways like in season 2.
Why do some people want Amy to be smart, intelligence is overrated, she has becum a more dull character in season 3.

She still dresses slutty...isn't that enough?

Besides, we still haven't seen Where The Buggalo Roam. Maybe that'll show some funnier, more interesting sides of her new non-slutty personality.

Yeah. If they ever bother to show it...  :mad:

Personally, I would've preffered Amy to stay slutty, but keep her brains. There are so many dumb sluts in cartoons... why not a smart one?

I guess they think a "smart slut" wouldn't be accepted by the male audience..

I think Amazon Women was a mediocre episode. It had a few one-liners (like "what, are you gay?" and "we got good fundamentals, more fun to watch&quot ;), but all in all it just wasn't funny enough for me.


First one even thinking about asking whether or not I'm gay gets one on the nose.   ;)

I don't think it's a question of if you're gay, Ricky . . .

But seriously, this is my second-most favorite episode.  Wall-to-wall zaniness with nary a tasteless joke to be found.

That episode was at least above average. Especially I love those Amazon quotes like "Me hear people, but me not see people - No big deal, everyone make mistake - We no can dunk but good fundamentals"... And Zap - heh heh

Teral's waaaaaaay too long review of "Amazonian Woman In The Mood"

Now that's what I call an episode, I'll definately rank this in top-5. But then again every episode involving Kif (and to an lesser extent the Zapper) is an instant classic in my book. The ping-pong action and dialog between theese two is just phenomenal. The Zapper as the self-appointed fatherfigure for some of his more pathetic men and Kif as the Zapper-loathing, involuntarily victim of the Zapper's fatherfiguring (is that a word? I think not, but there it is.).

The Zapper, while always a hoot to watch was in his best form ever in this episode. The whole date-negotiation, and the result is totally in character for the Zapper. He had his date and somehow keeps on going and end up with half-a-date. LOL. The karaoke, again LOL, but don't ever again let him sing on public TV  ;) , think about the children. His book of pickuolines, his behaviour on Amazonia and during the "execution", it all was hillarious, and there was much more.

But the Zapper wasn't the main treat of this episode, it was the parring of Amy and Kif which really made me love it. I like Kif, very much. In fact he is my favourite male character of Futurama. I think I still have my membershipcard for KFC laying around somewhere  :). If you wanna join KFC ask our vice-president KENNEDY. Kif's just such a genuinly nice guy, and he has been cursed with the Zapper as his CO, so it was a thrill to see him finally find some happiness. But the thorny way he had to walk to get there was just wonderfull. His shynes, following the Zapper's advice, the punishment on Amazonia and finally the rescue by Amy (after declaring his love to her). Awwww, how cute  :cry:.

Amy. I had some big reservations about her when I saw the first few episodes of Futurama (and when I came to this board). I found her shallow and one'dimensional. Kryten however objected and pointed me to this episode. And I changed my mind considerably about her after seeing it. It shows that she is more than JUST a party slut. She has feelings for Kif, even before he admits to her that he loves her. She recues Kif in the end, good job. She's already my #2 fave female character (no points for guessing who's #1).

Leela, was her usually charming, sexy, acturian kung-fu fighting, no-nonsense, caring, friendly self. Her loathing for the Zapper was as always hillarious, as was seeing her wear her FAO uniform on a date.

The rest was good, if forgettable. Zoidy's little sidestory was, as always, very amusing. Bender saves the day (and bags a bodyfull of gold), good.

The plot. I like the story. nice good flow, good characters, good pairings and the Kif/Amy relationship. Just loooove it. The oneliners was among the series best, Zapper and Kif delivering the most.

Short commets: Love the basketball-joke, Fry flying the ship, the snuh-snuh, the karaoke, the Fry/Bender/Zapper remarks while being prisoner (boy, talk about malestereotyping  :D ). Oh have I méntioned I like the Kif/Zapper "banter"  ;).

So to sum up. This is a sure 10. The second-best episode so far in the serie (tie with X-mas story). If I could I'd give it 15 (out of 10).

Tell you what, after the first act, it was the most risque episode of Futurama I ever saw. Good jokes abound, though. Especially when the men kept making fun of everything the women do. Just the fact that they are huge can create many good gags.

I wish it was the planet of the Indian movie stars.



Now they are hot. They look like hispanic girls somehow.

Crap! This episode pretty much sucked. It started out good. With the "1/2 date" which was funny and it was fun to see Leela Finally wearing the Cryogenics Jacket again but once zapp destroyed the restaurant and flew it into that planet the episode was pretty much ruined.It had good side stories like zoidbergs new shell and benders mexican thing but the main plot was the worst thing ever with Amazonia and Snu-Snu and all that bullshit. Boring,Stupid,Gay,Retarded,all words that describe it.

I have mixed feelings about this episode for starters there was way to many sex jokes! Some of them where funny but most of them sucked.

The first act was the best it had a pretty decent plot and it was nice to see Kif show his true feelings. Act 2 killed it though I hated how Fry and Bender found out they were in danger I feel it could of made more sense. If they cut out the B plot the episode could of had time to make a descent ending.

I give this episode a 4/10

Edit- Screw that I fell like it was a bit better so I'll give it a 6/10

4/10, seriously? I'm all for opinions, but seriously?...

I love this ep, can't believe I never reviewed it. I'll keep it short if I can, but so many great moments! Dr Zoidberg shedding his shell and the professors face! Brilliant! Zapp on total form, his chat up lines which Kif reads out, just hilarious! Amy's rather nice outfit. Amazonia is a great planet, everything that happens on there is comedy gold! Great art direction and design. Leela's reflection with two eyes. The Femputer, and of course snu snu!...

I guess this is a 10/10 ep for me...

Well, as part of the Random Order Test, I'm just off to pop the DVD in and have a watch of this myself (since I suddenly have a spare hour). Expect a decent review when I'm done.

Then be disappointed when I don't post one. :p

Will never be below Holiday (Not so) Spectacular that's for sure

So, Amazon Women In The Mood. First episode of Season 3, and one of the highest rated. I went in with middling expectations, this episode never having been one of my particular favourites.

Opening caption, billboard cartoon and the Femputer design were all absolutely brilliant.

The first line that made me laugh out loud was "Men who call too much are the worst. I bet." :laff:

The line that made me laugh hardest was "Maybe you can interface with my ass. By biting it!" from Bender. Bender at his best, really, is what made this episode what it is. He's not overly jerkish, and provides much of the comedy (as well as the plot resolution).

The plot itself was fairly well paced, although the ending was slightly rushed, I thought. There's a lot to wrap up in a short space of time though, so it's understandable. I've come to see this in a lot of shows that fit into the half-hour slot, and I think it's genuinely not the fault of the writers, but the networks, who don't allow them to overrun the timeslot by a couple of minutes (because that would take up valuable advertising airtime) and force them to cram everything into the time given.

The sizing of the giants was somewhat inconsistent, but overall the animation was excellent, particularly the space shots. There was also some fantastic voice acting, particularly during the kareoke. Particularly from Maurice LaMarche... although Billy West does a brilliant job of singing badly.

Overall, a solid episode like many from Season 6. Only one pop-culture reference (giant can of Tab), and a decent "classic" feel.

8/10

A decent episode, above average, but I wouldn't rank it among the top 10 Episodes.
This episode's major profit was the Amazonian's introduction of recurring characters (and already the Simpsons showed that those are one of Groenings greatest strength. Hope to see more of that little scenes as in "Fry am the Egg Man" in season 7 ).

I also would like to add a rather provoking question:

Would the writers have dared to write a plot regarding a ruled-by-the-males-with-the-females-enslaved society, in which Amy and Leela are constantly raped until they were freed by the others? (A rather rethorical question, and the show most certainly will not need that plot..)

Quite a nice episode. Some great quotes and a good example of Futurama's awesome continuity. Also, a fairly decent amount of background jokes.

I love the look on the Professors face when Zoidberg walks out the conference room, and Bender's imitation of Amy is hilarious  :laff:

And I love how he effortlessly sneaks his hand out of the shackles  ;)

I rate this a 9/10 One of Season 3's highlights. It doesn't beat classics like TLOTF or FS, but memorable nonetheless.
