    My Comedy Central is too stupid to show new episodes, so I have to wait until it appears on Teletoon at night by luck or watch it on the Internet!

    The Good:

    -"Tap water or bottled water?" The fact that it didn't matter either way.
    -Amy's over-the-shoulder boulder holder line.
    -The voice actor dig.
    -Professor Farnsworth smoking a carrot (my favorite joke of the season so far).

    The Bad:

    -Fry's cat noises.
    -The Leela and Amy scenes dragged the episode down. Unfortunately, they were a bulk of the episode.
    -Leela: "I once killed a sea turtle with these boots." Errr... whatever happened to Leela being an animal lover?

    Grade: C+

    Weakest of the season so far, mostly due to the Leela/Amy scenes. It did have some of the funniest jokes this season, however.

    I'm gonna give this one a C+ as well! It really wasn't that funny to me but I wasn't bored for some reason.....also it had the most half-assed rushed ending the series has ever seen!

    Didn't like it either: last week it was Leela in a see-thru negilee; now this week Leela and Amy are scantily clad?

    Sheesh...the animators at Futurama must be a bunch of middle-aged horndogs.

    I felt like this was another pretty blah outing and I already forget much of it less than 24 hours later. I was reminded of Strong Arms of the Ma though...oh and those cat noises at the beginning weren't funny to begin with and were run into the ground. I'm honestly not even gonna bother giving it a grade though.

    I wouldn't rule that out. I haven't seen any of the episodes but they seem so boring! Last seasom I thought Futurama lost a bit of it's charm and it looks like it got worse...

    The season started well but the last few episodes have been fairly forgetable. I hope the next few are better.

    Next week Hermes becomes a robot so.....that sounds like it could be fun and memorable....but I agree every episode IMO after Bots and Farewell have been pretty lukewarm and forgettable...i'm not giving up hope though!

    Pretty good episode, though the ending was sort of a copout. This has been a recurring problem in the newest Futuramas where they write stories that could stretch into two-parters, but they breeze through so much during Act III. Here, that was not really the case, but they could've come up a less lazy way to restore Fry. Everything else was pretty funny.

    4.0/5

    This episode was definitely missing something. It wasn't really funny for the most part, but more importantly, it just felt like a pointless episodes. It just didn't take the character's personalities anywhere interesting and also felt like the kind of premise that can be done on any show (two female characters join a female fighting league). I never understand when Futurama does something that any other show or characters can do. Felt like a waste. 2/5

    Yeah.. Aqua Something has been pretty crappy thus far... oh, wait.

    Did you mean Futurama... b/c this season look's pretty good to me bro, except for 'Baghead' b/c that one in fact sucked.

    Aside from the rushed ending and the whole mating thing at the end, I liked this one. At least having Fry think Amy was Leela when they were in bed was better than Marge raping Homer in "Strong arms of the Ma"

    3.5/5

    I thought it was alright

    A lot of it was pretty predictable but the jokes were solid

    My favorite joke was the whole backwards "I'm Abner Doubledeal. Hello" scene

    The first was good and I pretty enjoy this part but the second half is so anything so I give 2,5/5 to this episode... => 3 in the poll.
