  • mediocre

    three tales, of x-mas, robonukkah (however you spell it) and kwanzaa.

    not very humorous and kind of boring. the biggest joke for me, even though it itself was not that funny, was "Kool aid man!" and labarbara's "This is not a made up character; it's Kwanzaa-Bot." I also likd Bender's "I thought they were selfish, but in the end, it turns out I thought they were selfish!" the rest was kind of boring. i don't see why people hate it so much, but i guess that's why we all have our opinions. look forward to new episods next year. Grade- C+moreless
  • why are there so many low scores for this episode?

    why are there so many low scores for this episode? i thought this was a great episode of futurama it was kind of like a simpsons tree house of horror because there is short segments that dont solve a solution and the segment ends with planet express getting killed. there was three segments and i liked all three this was a very funny episode my favorite joke was in the last segment when bees were dying and a bee almost crashes into hermes but misses and hits a wall and dies, hermes says whats with all these comacosbees(i probably spelled that wrong).moreless
  • Worst episode ever!

    I am not the Comic Books guy but a dedicated Futurama fan and I have to tell the truth when an episode really sucks and this one probably shows what Futurama should never be again!

    Boring, pointless, without imagination nor creativity and worst of all it was supposed to be a Christmas Special!?

    Forget about this episode and please David & Matt, bring us a new season with great content. Some of the latest episodes were really great, possibly among the best ever shown.

    Futurama is incredibly rich and this episode was just incredibly poor. I think it is he first one I'll never watch again.moreless
  • The Futurama Holiday "Spectacular"

    So as an Anthology Of Interest or a Treehouse of Horror, this episode was divided into 3 segments. First: Xmas

    So FRy wants a pine tree for Xmas so the whole gang travels to a seed vault on the north, as pine trees are extint and the vault has seeds fo every tree known. But the seed vault is right next to a germ vault. So then Fry plants a seed and a year letar a pine tree is born, but then it suddenly mutates adn creates more trees. So the trees start to create tons of oxygen and when Bender lights a cigar, the Earth blows up.

    Second: Robannukah

    After Bender presents the most important tradition of the holiday (oil wrestling) he realizes he only has enough oil for 4 and 1/2 weeks instead of 6, so he and the gang go to look for some. When they hear there is none, they so search deep in the Earth soil. But they go deep enough fro the ship to collapsew. A million years laer, Bender realizes his firends turned into oil and went to use it, but he sees the oil he had lasted longer.

    Third: Kwanzaa

    So yeah, Kwaanzabot tells Hermes that he needs beeswax candles or else. So they go to look for beeswax but bees don't produce it anymore cause they all have pareasites. So FRy decides to go look for beeswax on the giant bee hive from "The Sting". They go and every bee is a kamikazbee. The queen tells them it's because of the parasutees, so Hermes talks about them about unity and they unite and turn the gang into candles.

    OVerall: Pretty lame considering how this season ended, but there were some laughs, like Hermes' icecream sandwich. 7.5/10.moreless
  • Good but not reat

    This episode of Futurama was good but not great over all I have to say I was a bit disappointed with this episode because Futurama in my opinion is about the best show I have ever seen on TV animated or other wise so my expectations are very high, it was just not as funny as I am used to Futurama being. This show I am afraid is not doing as good as it was before it was canceled since it came back to TV, the show I hope gets better in the future becuase it has been getting worse, still a very good show though.moreless
