I didn't like this episode at all and just wanted it to be over. I don't think I've ever felt like that about an ep of this show before.

Was Hermes hating Zoidberg something new, or have I just never noticed it before?
It's come up before. According to the Infosphere, it was first seen in "Hell is Other Robots," and has been an occasional running gag ever since.

Okay ep I guess. I'm not terribly interested in Hermes or Amy centric episodes, and Zoidberg is a hit or miss proposition. OHOT, isn't it time for Prof Farnsworth to get some luuuv?

I agree. That was one of the worst episodes yet, IMHO.

I wasn't big on the butterfly one, either.

I'm hoping they pull out of this and get back to the good stuff.

Just got around to this week's episode. I rather enjoyed it, thought it was above average for new-era Futurama. Since he's getting no love, I'll come right out and say it, Roberto is awesome. He'll stab the shit out of you.

I like Roberto. I would have liked to see him keep his new body.

One little detail I liked. The guy selling Hermes all the upgrades appeared way back in the first season, trying to sell Fry gills and z-ray eyes.

Re: Futurama Season 7 Discussion Thread

I'm glad I wasn't the only person who recognized him.

Granted, I think I only recognized him because I've been busy rewatching the entirety of the show recently.

Fun On A Bun

Not as gross as anticipated. It was okay. Had its moments, but I suspect many of us will be annoyed by the mispronounciation of "neanderthal".

Wooly mammoths are badass...how'd such a tough animal go extinct.

The giant sloth joke...so obvious.

Which Planet Express character hasn't led an army against civilization? I'm sure they'll get to them soon. "Scruffy's gonna do a regime change."
