This episode is why everyone over the age of 18 should watch this show.... who else would love an episode about brewing beer! I realize that this is really just the subplot to this story but I think that's what makes it so wonderful. Brewing really is that involved and if you make it right its just like the episode, you tend to put alot of love and care into it. I think its great that they really parody everything a pregant woman would do with a child.. especially Bender exclmation of 'Ooo I think I just felt it ferment!'
I also think they were able to catch what it really feels like to be a kid, in reality all you really want is for your parents to be proud of you, so you fight you're way to the top, even if you make a few mistakes along the way. I think the writers of futurama should do a book about being a dad, because when you get down to it, Farnsworth and hermes are pretty cool dads.
