  • Introduction of Mom

    9.7
    Much like Mr Burns of the Simpsons, Mom is the rich, evil owner of a large company, Mom's Friendly Robot Oil. Most Mom episodes are classic ones, and this is no exception as it introduces her evil side by actually bankrupting Fry. Zoidberg's people causing the extinction of anchovies, Fry buying everything at the auction and the advertisements put into people's dreams (unlike the 20th century where ads are only on TV and radio. And in magazines. And movies. And at ball games and on buses and milk cartons and t-shirts and written on the sky) were all great scenes. Fry's descent into madness as he sinks back into the 20th century lifestyle is truly tremendous and this makes the episode what it is.
