I cringed a bit at the classic book part (so childish!), although "arr, I saw it first" made me laugh. 
Overall, I think this is a very good episode! Lots of memorable jokes, and it featured the superiour being known as Hypnotoad...

I'm quite shocked at finding so many of you disliked the classic lit stuff -- I thought it made the episode ten times better than it would've been otherwise. And classic lit is extremely cool!! The P&P scene, especially, made me laugh out loud (but maybe that's just because I love Austen).

Elizabeth Bennet: Mr. Fry, my ma says you're quite the oddity, a bachelor at your age!
Fry: Hey, if you think I'm an oddity, wait until you see . . .
Butler: Introducing the most eligible bachelor in all Hartfordshire, Mr. Brainly.
(Brain floats in wearing period costume)
Brainly: I am a gigantic brain!
Aristocrats: I say . . . most ungentlemanlike.
E.B.: Mr Brainly, what news have you of the London season?
Brainly: Well...
Fry: Hey, Brainy, think fast! ::Throws paint::
Brain: I always think fast, ack!
Ahab: The whale!  He be white now!

haha... okay, so I'm a nerd. Anyway, I thought the Nibblonians were pretty weak, since it was the same joke over and over ("We're too cute!" It gets a bit old.) Yet, to each his own, I suppose...    :rolleyes:

I thought it was an ok episode although the Nibblonians were a bit of an anticlimax to anyone(like me) who has followed that storyline since the hidden Nibbler shadow in the first episode. It didn't really explain anything about the first episode and seemed a bit pointless.

But apart from the awkward plot development it was enjoyable and the end was quite intelligently done :)
my rating:

Don't feel too bad, why do you think I fixed the quote?

[Rev.Lovejoy]Can you recommend any books for my book mobile?
[Lisa] Oh, yes, anything by Jane Austin!
[RLJ] Jane Austin, eh?  Well, I'll get right on it!  ::Drives off in his Book-burning Mobile

definatley the best line in the episode, although the way everyone had no knowledge of any of the occurrences at the end pissed me off!

I loved it. It was well done and had some good plot developments. Leela on the Nibblonian planet was great.

I thought it was pretty much a just good episode. I liked the plot and everything, but something felt missing, that could have made this episode brilliant. I like what we got though, but it definitely could have been better in my opinion.
