  • 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.
