  • This is the worst "Futurama" episode of Season 8 so far. However, the ending was BY FAR the best part of the episode because it was very heartwarming and made me cry a little.moreless

    This is sadly the worst "Futurama" episode of Season 8 so far. I'm sorry to the "Futurama" fans but this episode just did not do any justice for me. I am a "Futurama" fan as well but this episode was just a disappointment. I rarely laughed at any parts. However, this episode wasn't extremely terrible but still mediocre. The best parts are probably Fry's flashbacks of his childhood when he entered the school science fair to do a project on the common cold but his enemy competes against him and comes up with a better common cold project instead. Although, I didn't like Fry's dad in the flashbacks and I especially didn't like it when he told Fry's enemy "Why I sure am impressed, good job son". That made me feel bad for Fry because his father didn't think he was worthy to win a science project. I also didn't like Zoidberg sneezing on Bender because that was just gross. I also hated the crew attacking Fry after the news reporter told everyone to attack Fry for making everyone catch the common cold. I also didn't like Bender (who happens to be my favorite character in this show) ditch the crew because he didn't want to take care of them. However, the last 5 minutes of the episode was awesome when Fry and the Planet Express crew went to get the common cold cure that Fry's enemy won at the science fair. One of the few parts I did laugh towards the end of the episode was Professor Farnsworth's final line which is "Hold still, this may hurt a little" then he stabs the man in the arm with a fork and then says "Now I'll give you the shot". The best part of this episode was BY FAR the ending of the episode when Leela told Fry "You saved millions of lives Fry... you should be happy, no matter what your father told you" and then Fry flashbacks to the moment when his dad told Fry why he is always pushing him and then he tells Fry that he loves him. I just thought that final flashback/scene from this episode was very heartwarming and made me cry a little. Overall, a mediocre episode of "Futurama" with an absolutely terrific ending that is both heartwarming and kinda tear-jerking. 5.5/10moreless
