  • Great episode. Something for everyone... science nerds, religious nuts, dinosaur lovers and zoidberg fans.

    this episode worked great but would have loved to have seen more of the robot world and less of the zoidberg/cubert story which was actually not much to begin with.

    The A story was great dealing with evolution. The gag where Farnsworth showed proof to the doubting Dr. Banjo was great. No proof was good enough.

    But the show took off when they went to the asteroid and everything evolves uberfast from the professor's goo eating machines to clean the lake. The part that worked least was the B story where zoidberg is taking care of cubert. this was another pairing from the new season that was new but this one didn't work very well. zoidberg is great as usual but the idea of him taking care of cubert in those short few minutes just didn't go anywhere. and there's definitely something missing with that storyline. in one scene they fight and cubert feels bad. then they bond. then next thing you know it's the end and zoidberg is trashing him. seems like some stuff was edited out.

    many many great lines... my top 5 (in no particular order)
    1) To the science mobile... it's just that you never called it that before but ok 2) Things don't exist simply because you believe in them... this sayeth the almighty creature in the sky 3) What have we got to eat that's not poisoned with pineapple 4) Uh oh... It's another one of fry's dogs 5) The water's as sterile as my milkman trusting father
