Anybody who missed last night's episode missed a good one. First off, I laughed so hard at the scene where

Playing "Mr. Sandman" in the scene took an already funny visual and made it hysterical. I really like it when they throw in a song for an incidental scene. Then there was the

At Purdue University, where baby wants to enroll, they have a Rube-Goldberg contest every year...the more complicated, the better. The ick-factor kicked in a bit in the beginning of the episode, but this one was a winner. "Finally," said the crustacean, "a victory for Zoidberg! Hooray!"

Now that's more like it. The injuries of the crew were a bit wacky, even for Futurama, but the plot was good and I was laughing out loud nearly all the time. At the same time it managed to be rather touching. My most hilarious scenes were
Spoiler
Interesting twist, too, and the flashbacks were very nice.

In short, a bit more surreal than usual (the injuries, the Professor
Spoiler
), but hilarious and well-written. Also, Zoidberg needed more episodes centred on him.
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

DANCE, F***ER, DANCE, LET THE MOTHERF***ER BURN!
