  • Not quite sure what to make of this one.

    Mom is a great character, and I like the idea of the robot rebellion, plus this has some enjoyable jokes in it. The 'revelation' isn't done as badly as it could have been, either. However, once the third act's plot with the Professor trying to seduce Mom kicks in, the episode becomes one of the most disturbing Futurama episodes ever. The sex scenes with the Professor and Mom are quite frankly sick...if they'd left what happened to the imagination and moved into another plot after the Professor had deactivated the robots, it might have been a lot better. However the Professor/Mom sex plot doesn't detract from the rest of the episode - for some reason I've always liked TV plots of society collapsing. Overall, this was a pretty good episode for the first two acts.
