I, too, was hoping that they'd advert the sterotypical view of Africa. I half expected the Planet Express shuttle to clear the leaves and find a fully futuristic city.
On the other hand, I loved the beginning with the "Free Beer" opening gimmick.
^Yeah, I expected them to hack their way out to find they'd parked in the only patch of jungle in the middle of a massive cityscape.
Anyway, I thought there weren't any jungles on Earth anymore. Was this one transplanted over from Mars?
