  • Some good stuff, some bad stuff.

    Another pretty average offering. I really didn't like the beginnig of this episode, with Fry and Bender being arrested as accomplices and put into a robot asylum, it just seemed kind of ...off. Roberto just really annoyed me with his hurried and high pitched way of speaking (I realise that was meant for the character, but that doesn't mean it can't annoy me), and the stuff in the asylum was pretty dull. And yet another appearance of the hyper chicken. He was very funny the first few times, but it's getting boring. I did feel very sorry for Fry though. It really picked up once Fry thought he was a robot, plenty of great stuff there. I loved him thinking robots say 'ye' and trying to figure out what kind of bot he was. Best moment of the episode, though, was Leela kissing him to snap him out of it, and him smiling and then going 'beep'. Delivery and timing was just brilliant there. The hostage scene was OK as well.
