How can an episode that ignores so much continutiy be considered amazing.
The flashback at the end can not be possible.
Bender is 4 years old last count. Lets assume time has progressed some and is now 5 maybe 6 years old.
We saw the day he was built. He is built as a full "Adult" robot. Shown going to college to get his bending degree getting his first beer etc etc. In the mothers day episode he has a photo showing the day he was built as a full grown adult.
Hermes on the other hand has been with the professor for well over 10 years so he couldnt have worked with Mom's robot factory. Let alone he was with his wife when he won his limbo champion medal in the olympics. And his son is in his pre teens.
Just like the rest of this season its an Udder failure
