Yesterday the good old Tivo caught an episode of Futurama I haven't seen before. It was on TBS at 1pm I think. Anyways the story involved the characters going to "Pastorama" which was a 20th Century amusement park. There they met another bending unit, I think his name was Folder, and he was just like Bender but with a small beard. It was a great episode. How did I miss this episode? I rarely missed them on Fox, and I am pretty certain I saw them all during the run on Cartoon Network. I kept a close eye out to see if any came on I hadn't seen before, and yet this one slipped by me twice? Anybody know what season this was in originally?

Yeah, a good episode from season 2. His twin's name is Flexo. I hate to say this but if this is the first time you've seen Flexo then you've also missed "Bendless Love" from season 3 that Flexo returned in.

That's just so weird. I'll have to reset my season pass and keep a much closer eye on this. Man I can't wait for all the DVDs to come out.

Great episode... the parody of Star Trek was delish... The one in this past season had various "evil/good characters," right? I seem to remember intellegent Fry and sex-machine Leela

If that was the one with alternative universes, then it wasn't really the same Flexo, was it? In the one I just saw Flexo was just another bending unit, it just so happens his serial number, like Bender's, could be expressed by the sum of two cubes. Man that's a weird coincidence.Posted Image Beyond that there was no other connection between the two.

I believe he's talking about the episode where Bender goes to work for a bending factory. Flexo works there along with an ex-flame. Bender dates the ex-flame and diguises himself as Flexo to see if she still has feelings for him.
