    I missed the beginning of the show. Just in case somebody didn't see it or here about it i will put my question in a spoiler tag.

    How did Snowball II die?


    The show itself I thought was great. Professor Frink having a son? LOL What laboratory accident caused the spawn of Frink?

    He had a (much younger) son in another episode too. Frink had a small airplane that he was demonstrating with his son inside. He lost control of the plane and it flew out the window, and then he said that his wife was going to kill him.

    I laughed out loud several times in the episode, so it was pretty good. Season 15 has done well so far to defy the "all new episodes suck" theory.

    Why was Maggie in the robot with Homer in the last battle, but she's never seen again for the end of the episode?

    I didn't like so much all of the cats dying. I thought it was just filler that did not do all that much. And then just bringing it all back to where it started (but a humorous reference to the "Principal and the Pauper" episode) But the A story was pretty good. My favorite part was the Head shot of Ralph Wiggum on the robot being repeatedly shot by Homer

    My favorite part was when Frink's robot took the vanquished robot, ate it, and then pooped out a trophy for itself.

    Yeah, I wasn't much for the dead cats. I know my fiance would have hated the episode based on that alone.

    The only reason I can think of is because they could do it and it was random.

    That one had me LOL for a couple of minutes straight. I also liked Millhouse's tattoo: "Biker Chick."

    So far I have been pretty happy with this season. This past episode reminded me a lot more of the ones from the "old days."

    I was going to point that out since we only see Maggie when the robot is shaken (not stirred) and it looked like it was some subliminal image that was put in (either that or I was seeing things).

    It was odd hearing "That's My Boy" again since I just watched "Saturdays of Thunder" on the season 3 dvd.

    BTW Shouldn't Lisa be tortured for bringing Skinner's past?

    Thanks Jeff for reminding me of that. I had forgotten about that scene. I don't the professor is married anymore. They seem to reference him being single in a few episodes.

    This is The Simpsons. It's not known for continuity.

    Did the animation seem off to anyone? It seemed to me like the motion was a bit weird. But maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me. Something just didn't look right.

    To me, I'm seeing more and more Futurama in every new episode (especially the sight gags). Maybe it was just all the robots but the "spring loaded first-aid kit" (with the band-aid stuck in his head) and the crapping of the trophy, that's pure Futurama.

    Yeah, the story about Lisa's cats wasn't very funny.

    However, the main robot plot was insanely funny. I laughed so hard during basically everything in that story. Some good lines too, but I don't remember them.

    My wife and I both got a big laugh out of the spring-loaded first aid kit. Not sure why, but that one struck us as funny and had us laughing for a good 10 seconds. Also, the pooping of the trophy was hilarious.

    I thought this was a really terrible episode. Probably the worst one I've ever seen. The only one time that I laughed out loud was the reference to "Principal Tanzarian" at the end.
