    A fine (unintentional) season opener

    By scaryness, Dec 14, 2008

    I really enjoyed it. There were a few elements I didn't like, such as a few forced lines from Zoidy and, much as I like Al Gore appearing on this show, it seemed a little too guest-starry and laboured. Still, this had a lighthearted, satirical global warming storyline, loads of great gags and quotable lines throughout. The first couple of acts were hilarious, especially the global warming video ("ONCE AND FOR ALL!") and the Professor's flashback. I loved Bender's turtle story, especially the clogs and Morbo's "Windmills do not work that way!" I didn't really like the robot party bit, and the ending was pretty disappointing.moreless

    Amazing parody of Global Warming!!!!!

    By Iverson82094, Feb 19, 2008

    As Earth is unable to counter its rising temperature through the usual method (the dropping of a giant ice cube into the ocean), Gore leads an emergency conference in Kyoto, Japan, where Professor Farnsworth claims responsibility for the crisis. It seems love detoured him from observing proper emission standards on his prototype robot, and that could necessitate the destruction of all its "descendants." That includes Bender, who resigns himself to having a farewell blowout before being blown up.

    A great episode that parodies one of the biggest inevitable natural disatsers. Very funny with some great future history. To sum it all up a great episode.moreless

    Robots are found to be the blame for global warming.

    By mataletea, Feb 02, 2007

    To combat global warming Earth has been mining Haley's Comet for ice, being the only source of ice left that does not have little bugs in it and dropping it into the ocean. But when the ice runs out a summit is called to solve the crisis.

    The problem is discovered to be the robots and Professor Farnsworth is to blame as all robots are based on his inefficeint design.

    The plan to get rid of the robots is hilarious. Hosting a party and blowing them all to bits. With Signs : Tonight big robot part. Tomorroa big scrap metal give-away.moreless

    Al Gore at his best

    By rkmcd, Dec 07, 2006

    "Whose ready to party with Nixon?"

    The use of Nixon is hysterical, I laughed out loud more than once.

    I wonder if when Agnes was elected Governor of Maryland he could have had the foggiest idea he would still get mentioned on prime-time TV in the next century.

    I enjoyed the robot building flashback of the Professor and the young, slutty, "Mom" character.

    who knew bender had a soft side for anything...

    By cats12r, Jul 13, 2006

    who would have thought bender would care about anything but himself, female robots, alcohol and maybe the crew. and he would actually die for turtles, whe they dont apparently have much in common. i liked this episode alot. i say its the best so far made. i gotta say, dumping ice cubes in the ocean would not save earth from real global warming though. i also thought that it was funny, that the mirror broke from 1 small stone, and it created a line of boiling light, that melted the, overall i rate this episode 9.8 out of 10.moreless

    This is a sweet episode.

    By ian_ralph12345, Jul 04, 2006

    This episode is funny. Bender, along with every other robot, almost dies.

    It is really hot. The professor gets a global warming video and shows it to everyone. It shows that every couple years they have to dump a giant ice cube in the ocean to make it cold again. Every year it has to be a bigger ice cube. Then it reveals that Bender can't get up when he is on his back (like a turtle). Then president Nixon calls the crew and says they're the ones who have to do it. They go to Hailey's Comet to get ice, but there is no ice left. They have to find another solution to make it cool again. President Nixon gets every professor to come to a conference. Farnsworth goes and he admits to making it hot. It's the robots that make it so hot, but he is the one who made the robots so pollutionary. The only solution is to destroy all robots. President Nixon invites all the robots to a party. It is obviously a trap to destroy all robots, but no robot, other then Bender, figures it out. Bender goes anyway because he wants to save the earth. Nixon plans to fire a gigantic laser at the island where all the robots are. The professor has an idea. He gets all the robots to vent as much as they can. They all do except Bender. He is stuck on his back and can't get up. He starts to roll. He rolls as hard as he can and he rolls over. He gets up and vents. That made enough power to push the earth a bit away from the sun. Doing this made the laser miss the island. It wasn't hot anymore, but it made each year exactly one week longer. That week became robot party week.

    I give this episode a 9.5 out of 10.moreless

    Introduction of Global Warming

    By jimbo_001, Feb 02, 2006

    Global Warming becomes a problem for New New York and the rest of the world again having previously been extinguished hundreds of years ago by nuclear winter.

    This episode is very well plotted with hilarious gags such as Bender noy being able to get off his back, just like a turtle.

    The idea that Farnsworth was responsible for building the robots that would heavily contribute to global warming was a great idea and all the robots knowing this but for some reason falling for the "party" was hilarious and really shows true Futurama humour. This is a terrific example of a Futurama episode and should be viewed by all true fans.moreless

    This is one of my favourite episodes in the entire series due to the excellent plot and script writing.

    By Zeke129, Jul 02, 2005

    This episode starts out normally like any other, but the story takes off very quickly. The Planet Express crew are sent to mine Hailey's Comet for ice, but when they discover it has run out, an emergency confrence is held to find solutions for Earth's global warming problem. Their solution? Send all polluting robots to an island and destroy them.

    Bender and the crew then come up with a solution to save all the robots - and the global warming problem.

    This is an extremely funny episode with excellent writing. There are many refrences to past episodes, and many of the older characters make re-appearances. If you are a fan of Futurama, you've probably already seen this one. If not, it will be a good choice to get yourself hooked!

    9.2 out of 10.moreless
