  • The introduction of popplers

    Throughly excellent, this is probably the most consistent, well-devised and, yet, so cunning and devious episode on Futurama's second season.
    All the things to love about Futurama are here (interactions between characters, Bender's lines, cheap future depiction, comic aliens, etc. etc.), and the ep even takes one step beyond, by making a point about the "protection" of intelligent animals from Mankind. And, of course, the traditional mark of Futurama's intelligent humour brands the whole episode through... - "Unless this is a nude lovin', get the hell off my property!"
    - "Pfff, you can't OWN property, man."
    - "Yes, I can, and that's because I'm not a penniless hippie."

    ...and other snippets, like Leela crashing into the billboard exactly like on the credits presentation, Taranga Leela and Phillip Fry, the Popplers songs, and the hilarious Omnicronians... my Gosh, this episode is so dense in good stuff, that it is absolutely inexcusable if anybody misses it out. Definitely one of the best Futurama episodes ever. Grade A++.
