I agree, this one was the most hilarious episode in a long time. Lots of laugh-out-loud gags. My favorite was the one about how the trapped sun miners "may never not
see the light of day again."
And I love how the cackling supervillain sought to overthrow "the alderman of my district."
And it's refreshing to see Bender portrayed as having at least some trace of a conscience. He actually chose to protect the Earth even if it meant sacrificing himself to eternal solitude. Sometimes I think he gets caricatured as too evil, and I prefer it when he has some redeeming virtues.
