    In the robot chop shop there is a Rosie from The Jetsons, a Dalek, and an Alpha from Power Rangers. What were some of the others?

    I thought the first half was hilarious. Then it got a little boring and too easy when they arrive to the Lighthouse, though it got some impressive animation. Then it ended on a brilliant note again, so overall it was pretty good.

    I actually really liked the concept and I think it defines Bender's obsession with his ass pretty well. After all it's a comedy so a silly concept should not be a problem.

    The only problem here were my expectations, I thought it would be more Bender-centric in the last act, kind of a Godfellas sort of thing, with him going on a very epic and difficult travel to found his ass. However the ending with the ass returning home had some of that although it was the ass the one 'who' did the journey.

    And I loved the dark humor in it. I personally adored the scene with Tinny Tim. With a human kid it would have been too much, but it was pretty funny here. I also enjoyed Leela's frown in the subsequent scenes, at least someone cared about what Bender did. It's funny that he didn't have any problem with that but he did care about sailors because they are accustomed to curse.

    The initial scene was pretty good with all the mistakes with the T-Shirts and the two gangs. And all the callbacks were really well done.

    I actually like Maya as a writer, I enjoyed Duh Vinci's Code as well.

    4,5/5

    I don't really know what to say with this one. It's pretty much the opposite of last week, where I thought Calculon 2.0 was a perfect episode but I couldn't work out why, this episode just didn't work, and I can't figure out why. It all felt a bit like a story you'd find in the comics. The plot, the jokes, the use of tertiary characters, the new characters that we'll obviously never see again. Even the animation felt off at times. Nothing was terrible, it just seemed sort of...false. Some bits I loved, the gags revolving around the gang's mirror made me laugh out loud, as did the cut of the booty line. I don't know, I think this is the first time I've truly seen what people are talking about when they talk about new Futurama. Just...inconsequential.

    I watched it a few days ago on the television. Honestly an episode based off Bender's ass was never going to be interesting and the episode didn't really do much to make it any good. The beginning was alright with about 2-3 funny parts but when they went ass hunting there was really nothing to it. No substance whatsoever and I swear they were no good jokes from that moment on. It wasn't a total bore fest but there's really nothing worth remembering from this episode.

    2.5/5

    This one really didn't work for me. To theme an entire episode around Bender's "shiny metal ass" was a novel idea, but there was basically no story to this one and the over-the-top melodrama at the end was kind of lame. There were a few decent jokes, the characters were themselves for the most part, and I really liked the animation on gas sea place. But this episode just took a funny little idea and failed to do anything with it. It jumped from one random bit to another. The scenes of going to different places and retrieving Bender's various body parts were fun , but then it sort of ran out of steam, struggling to craft a proper story development and choosing to go off on some strange tangent about Bender's ass being used in a lighthouse... What followed was nothing particularly funny or interesting. It hopped around from one unrelated point to another, with nothing really sticking or offering any payoff. The episode fully embraced its ridiculousness at the end, with a tongue-in-cheek reunion between Bender and his beloved posterior, but(t) the episode acknowledging that it didn't make any sense, didn't excuse the fact that it didn't make any sense. It was just a bit weak, really. It seemed like not an awful lot of thought or effort went into this episode, which for one of the show's final instalments was a little disappointing. 4/10

    This episode was just kinda mediocre, while I like the premise of searching for Bender's missing parts in various locations, I felt they should have spent less time with the rival gangs in order to get to the main story. I mean they don't even start looking for Bender's ass until Act 3. Pacing issues aside, none of the jokes were particularly memorable to me. However, I did like that they brought back a couple of old characters like the salesman or the porno dealing die. Unfortunately, the guy who ran the lighthouse wasn't a very interesting character. 3/5

    Could have been a much better episode than it ended up being. It felt like a retread of Free Will Hunting in some ways, which is pretty bad when that was only a handful of episodes prior. They spent too much time with the gangs in the first act (there they go with the Simpsonesque unrelated opening springboard acts) and by the time they made it to the lighthouse things had gotten pretty boring and stayed that way. The Tinny Tim scene left a really bad taste in my mouth; yeah yeah Bender's a dick and all but his going this far makes it hard to empathize or even want him to succeed, it seems OOC for Leela to just stand by and let him do something like that, and it just feels like way too much of a Family Guy-ish look-how-edgy-we-are thing. It doesn't help that there's not a lot in the way of funny or memorable jokes.

    This one is good. Seemed like something that could've been made in the first season.

    Pretty generic. Bender loses his parts and has to retrive them.
