    Bender joins the robot mafia (insert dramatic music here)! A truly funny and suspenseful episode of Futurama, with a complicated plot with some twists and turns along the way. Anyone who likes really great humor, robots, mafia storylines, the future, and Bender, should watch this episode (Bender Gets Made) of Futurama, for sure!

    After temporarily blinding Leela, Elzar gives the Planet Express crew a meal at his restaurant. They order very expensive things, then discover that Elzar is making them pay. They are nearly arrested, then Bender says he will work off his debt. It is at Elzar's Restaurant where he meets the robot mafia, stirring up some trouble...

    This episode was really good, it was just a first 22 episode idea to have Bender join the mafia and I think the writers pulled it off really well, the jokes and animation had a certain quality that succeeded most Futurama episode, I espicially like Leela going blind, Tiney Tim's role in the episode, the mafia raiding the planet express ship and of course Bender and the gang going to Elcazar's show and Bender making all those loud noises, also the great thing with Elcazar saying he will make the crew a great diner after blinding leela and making them pay for it.

    This wasa great episode and was well plotted.

    this was not my favorite episode it was just a plain bender but it was to predictable.

    the episode starts off when Bender, Fry and Leela are attends a live taping of elzars cooking show. but bender is so excited that he contiuosly disrupts the show much to a upsetting Elzar dismay benders ass kissing blinds temporarily leela for few weeks in guilt elzar treats the planet express crew to lunch but they do not pay the bill forcing bender to work for elzar.

    but bender quits when he is asked to join the robot mafia.but bender is in trouble when he has to abush the planet express ship to earn the don bots respect.

    This actually was a very good episode of Futurama. I remember having to record this show because my family was out of town. I thought it was going to be another painfully/bored episode, but instead it took on a new different adventure.

    At first the plot seemed to be going okay, Bender acting like a jerk causing his friends to get hurt, and then working a debt off at Elzar\'s restaurant and at which point, I thought he was going to somehow weasel out of it causing his friends more grief. But when the Robot Mafia came in, I knew I was in for a treat.

    Bender tries to impress them and later tries to steal from them, and here our Clamps and Joey ready to kill him while DonBot is laughing and decides Bender should hang out with them. Bender can\'t get enough of the good stuff as, he suggests they plan some felonies. After shooting an old robot up one night as a warning, Donbot decides that its time for Bender to do the real stuff.

    Their first project hijacking a cigar ship. Later that night, Bender unfortunately learns the cigar ship is his own ship. But the whole thing is, Bender manages to convince the Robot Mafia to personally take care of things when he fears he\'s going to get caught, and they buy it!!!! And Bender gets away with the whole thing without his friends ever knowing, even Fry who thinks he\'s the only one who knew what really happened (which he didn\'t). Bender then happily eats his money he got from the cigar heist.

    Bender joining the robot mafia was a terrific idea as was the actual idea to have a robot mafia. The irony that Bender's first mission is to attack Planet Express and kill the crew is great but the best part of the episode was Leela's eyepatch and her trying to steer the ship with Nibbler's bowl. The blast off sundaes would be awesome (wish I lived in the future) as would the finest cigars in the Universe (Zubans). Clamps is a hilarious member of the robot mafia and it's always funny to see him make obvious statements about his clamps. Bender's accent changing switch was great and proves what a creative show Futurama is.
