    "Bender Should Not Be Allowed on Television" (episode #71)

    Hooray! Sounds like a really funny one tonight. The soap-opera scenes in "Bend Her" were a gas.

    Good news, everyone! The episode kicked butt. And Hypnotoad made an appearance.

    I don't remember watching this episode because I have Amnesia (cue the dramatic music) [​IMG]

    No joke, at lunch today I was commenting on being almost out of Futurama episodes and I said "Too bad we don't have at least a couple more episodes about...what's the name of that guy that isn't Bender, and that other character that isn't Bender...oh never mind. I just love that Bender!".

    I also love the Hypnotoad sound.

    The Hypnotoad... best reason to watch the show in DPL II with the sub turned WAY up. [​IMG]

    I didn't find it all that funny. The satire was spot on and much more cutting than anything from the Simpsons in recent years. But while it was intellectually satistfying, I dunno, Bender works best in small doses. Now Fry being stupid I can take a whole episode of.

    Not a bad episode by any means, just not the best.

    I loved it. Of course I love Bender.
