    Lrr's wife is mad at him because he has not conquered any planet. Lrr goes to Earth to try and conquer it, but nobody takes him seriously. So, the Planet Express crew stage him taking over Earth, but when his wife finds out, will Lrr confess he has not taken over Earth?

    Good episode. Comic-Con was funny. Bender's question about a second Simpsons movie was pretty funny. And Nndn thinking Lrr was into Leela was good. And Fry's plot was good. Overall it was a pretty good episode. B+ or so methinks is adequate enough. Not horrendous not perfect methinks
  • Starts off strong, but then becomes a little boring, as the plot has been done before much better in Futurama.

    "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences"

    Grade: B-

    So this episode mainly focuses on Omicron Persei 8 leading Lrrr and his wife Ndnd, and does this ring any bells before? Well, an eariler episode called Spanish Fry did almost the same thing, as Lrrr has to try and win back Ndnd as usual. The first act is really good, focusing on Fry's comic, offering a few good laughs out of the 3010 Comic Con, spoofing the cancellation of Futurama in a futuristic way, but after that, the jokes are lessened and the plot kind of becomes predictable as it focuses on Lrrr and Ndnd.

    The twist of Fry not getting killed by the laser gun was already predicted very early on the episode, when they brought it up that it was a teleporter gun. It's a shame because the episode could have been left on a really good cliffhanger of Fry seemingly killed (like The Sting) and bringing it into a nice conclusion at the end of the next episode. Nevertheless, the scenes with Lrrr have mostly been done before (Spanish Fry) and it was kind of dragging on a bit. The Orson Welles fake movie scenes was good, but again, its all been done before (When Aliens Attack). Overall, the episode's first act was very strong, but the rest was average.
  • Starts off strong, but the plot gets weaker as the episode goes on.

    After a stellar episode last week, this one was a disappointment. The first act was excellent, I loved Fry's comic strip, and the entire Comic-con scene. But the episode started going downhill at the second act. I hated the scene where Lrrr was trying to get over his mid-life crisis, it was really boring. The only part I got a kick out of was Zapp being stupid enough to believe that the Earth really was being destroyed by aliens. I will admit the ending was sort of a surprise, but it felt kind of lazy, as they could've made it so much more interesting. An overall passable episode that could've been more compelling and funny.
  • Apparently, there won't be another Simpsons Movie. Maybe there will be, but not before the year 3010.

    So Fry is working on a ocmic, which is kinda simple because the hero, Deliveryboyman, has a specially useful power for every situation as he was "bitten by a radioactive Superman" which only Zoidberg likes. Oh wait, he liked the Ads. The Professor says those products are crap, and amy points out he has his own ad for a disintegrator, which the Professor says it's just a teleporter and that's how he knows the products on the ads are crap. Fry then goes to Comic-Con 3010 for a critic for "Deliveryboyman".

    At Comic-Con, they go to a Matt Groening panel where he and David X Cohen show then a pilot for a new show: Futurella, set on the year 4000. When they are showing the opeing sequence, it gets cancelled, those jerks at Fox streamlined the process and canceled it already. And then they are allowed to asks questions, but not about the simpsons, Just about Futurella

    Bender: When are you gonna make a second Simpsons movie??!!
    (Matt then shoots Bender with a laser)

    Fry asks Mr. Aragones if his comic is good, and it's not. So they go to a costume ocntest. There were many nods to Futurama eps (Mom, Brainspawn, Yivo, Leela, Robot Devil) as well as known movies (Avatar, Pirates of the CAribbean, Star WArs, and the ghost costume from Charlie Brown). So then Lrrr arrives, as Ndnd forced him to conquer a planet, and as everyone believed he was another disguised newrd, noone took him serious. Stunned he asks Leela why aren't they scared and if he knows her. Leela says he ate her for some minutes (Problem with Popplers reference!)

    That night Ndnd kicks him out and he stays at Planet Express. They try to cheer up Lrrr and he takes Bender's way (young look, make horns longer and have a one night stand), but at that night, the omicronian he dated is revelaed to be a cr0ss-species dresser and is just a very hot chick. Meanwhile Fry shows the crew his new version of Deliveryboyman where he does nothing and cry. Noone likes it either. So to get Ndnd back they decide to make her belive Lrrr conquered Earth. With the help of Orson Wells of course. With a Mork&Mindy reference: Bender: Dork calling Orson. Dork calling Orson

    So in a very funny fake report, Ndnd buys it and unfortunately, Zapp too. At the White House, Zapp and the troops come , and deliver the line: Zapp: So, you though you could conquer us so easily eh? Nice job. We surrender. Earth is yours.

    So Ndnd makes a surprise visit, so Lrrr has to play along as the ruler of the Earth, making everyone work on mines and on weird plays. That night, Lrrr and Ndnd were about to uh, have sex Omicronian way, when he sees Leela and can't do it. The next day he asks Leela what to do when Ndnd arrives and thinks Lrrr has been cheating on her, and he tells the truth about the Earth conquering stuff. But the really hot chick on her costume arrives and is about to shoot Ndnd, when she desintegrates the hot chick.

    So Ndnd demand the ritual of Rmmrfrmhmr Consequences, on white Plains (actual white, plain squares) where Lrrr has to shoot and kill the girl he doesn't want anymore. He can't do it, but Ndnd nags him until he does it, but FRy jumps to save Leela and it desintegrated. So Ndnd and Lrrr get back together and go home, and the hot chick comes to get Lrrr, but late. Then the crew figures out Lrrr shoot Fry with the teleporter Farnworth has ads of, and he is drawing the final version of Deliveryboyman, where the hero tries to cover Leela but does it to early and then a meteor falls on the bad guy, and the hero and Leela end up together. This is the version Leela liked the best.

    Bottom line: Good epiosde, nice Comic-con parodies, a lot of great lines, and All Glory Hypnotoad!!!!!!
  • Lrrr the alien plans to get his wife back by faking that he's taken over Earth to impress her with the help of the planet express gang.

    So far the new series of "Futurama" has been damn good! Lets hope this episode is not its quality lowering back to the standards of the mediocre "Attack of the killer app" and "That Darn Katz" for long.

    When I first read what the plot of this episode was I wasn't exactly excited. Why do "Futurama" keep bringing back this Lrrr character? He was good as a one off but has already been overused. Anyway, he's here and ends up staying with the main characters when his wife kicks him out. They try and find him a new woman and later (with the help of Orson Wells head) try to convince his ex-wife he's conqured Earth so she'll take him back. This, plus the opening at comic-con 3010, Frys own comic-book, and the twist ending makes for an episode crammed with ideas. But it just isn't funny enough. After the first half or so the gags start losing it and the episode had me groaning more than laughing by the end.
