  • Fry and Bender are both sentenced to a robot asylum, and despite Fry's pleas that he's not actually a robot, he is exposed to electrocutions and other forms of robotic punishment.

    This was a pretty good episode. The two buddies are sentenced to a robot sasylum, one of which WANTS to be there and doesn't want to leave, and the other who can't tolerate being exposed to robot therapy. The main highlight was definitely the scene where Fry and Bender first arrive at the asylum, where Bender enjoys getting stripped, X-rayed, drilled, and magnetized, while Fry attempts to evade these tortures by sucking on the drill and such. While Fry devises various failed escape plans, Bender repeatedly pleads insanity to extend his stay at the facility, due to its free booze. The therapoy eventually gets to Fry, who truly believes he's become a robot when he's released. As for Bender, his robot felon buddy, Roberto, escapes with him in tow. Roberto is probably the main problem with this episode - We don't actually get to see any side of him except the side that insists on robbing the same bank three consecutive times. He's not very likable. Otherwise, highly entertaining.
