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

    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.
