Re: Futurama Season 7 Discussion Thread

I agree "T: The Terrestrial" was rather weak. I didn't really have anything to say about it last week so I forgot to post in my own thread.

This week's episode was a bit better, but not quite a standout. The first half and the final quarter were pretty strong with lots of gags, but for a short stretch in the middle, the episode felt like it was meandering in the world of predictability. I did enjoy the revelation that everything that Bender sang about came true and I especially liked the fatal flow of Bender's duplicate, i.e. having artistic integrity, which was something I noticed right away as being off.

I also agree that the Professor should have been the inventor of the "Make-o-Matic," but I forgive that because of all of the other callbacks such as Bender's previous adventure as a folk singer and his personality screw up as penguin as well as the mourners at his funeral that included some penguins, Lucy Liu, Abner Doubledeal, Bubblegum, the Destructor, among others, although I don't think I noticed Flexo (I guess he actually destroyed himself).

Lastly, I loved this line: “Nowadays, we can take a unique and beautiful object, and easily reduce it to a formula for mass production. I call the process ‘Science!’”
