This episode has lots of visual gags, a full plot and great visual presence. The reference to Fry being a "child of destiny" serves to foreshadow the plotline of 3-19 Roswell That Ends Well. It never ceases to amaze me the new things I catch after viewing these episodes dozens of times.
This episode has never really flipped my switch. I can't really pinpoint a reason after viewing it; it's a perfectly respectable episode. It may have something to do with following a classic example of a Futurama episode, The Day The Earth Stood Stupid. One of my favorite things about Futurama is the way the writers and creators reference past plotlines and characters without sacrificing the current plot. This episode, like most others, is full of sight gags too numerous to record, so keep a sharp eye out.
This episode delves more into Bender's sensitive side, a side we didn't think existed except in relation to food and folk music. It also revists some old characters like the Robot Mafia and Flexo and some old scenery, the Hip Joint. Poor Flexo seems to suffer from mistaken identity inspired mishaps every time he and Bender cross paths. I'd say this episode had a little bit of everything necessary to make a damn good Futurama episode.
Turanga Leela is the captain of the Planet Express.Turanga Leela is the captain of the Planet Express. She's a hard as nails fem-mutant, who couldn't get a second date to save her life. If you were to see Leela in a bar, you'd be amazed that she's drinking twice as much of drink with twice the proof of yours. You might be tempted to walk over and ask her out, but it might be difficult to come up with a good pick-up line because of her eye.
Bender is a robotic bending unit.Bender is a robotic bending unit. But more importantly he's the Planet Express's chef and best friend to Fry. He's sarcastic, blunt, thieving, alcoholic, scamming, lying, dishonest, harsh, cruel, sadistic, opportunistic, greedy...
If you were to see Bender in a pub, he'd be drinking, a lot. it doesn't matter what kind of liquor, he'd drink anything, and lots of it. And he'd try to walk out before paying his bill.
Philip J Fry is a 20th Century leftover, slacker and delivery boy for Planet Express.Philip J Fry is a 20th Century leftover, slacker and delivery boy for Planet Express. When not sitting on his ass watching TV, he can be found on a suicidal delivery mission, or hitting on Leela.
If you were to see Fry in a bar, he'd be drinking beer. Most likely a bud, but any crap American beer will do fine. He'd be surrounded by "friends", each making coarse jokes at his expense.
