Zoidberg and Cubert, now? They're just plowing THROUGH the unexplored duos!
I can't wait for the Leela/Scruffy episode*.

I'd say this one was the weakest episode so far this season, especially the end, terrible attempt at a joke at the end. 

A few good visual gags but it was way too predictable.

Nice to see the Flying Spaghetti Monster doubting evolution, not super funny but amusing, I think that's the problem, evolution is just not a good topic for comedy anymore, been done to death, same with the nano-bots evolving, been done way too much although they really took it all the way this time.

the protest signs were repeated a few times; not much for freeze-framers. :(

Any appearance of Scruffy is a good thing.

The premise of this one was certainly interesting, but something (I'm not sure what) was lacking in the execution.  I was also reminded of the line from a couple of episodes ago about how they used to be a delivery company.  Delivery, paleontology, they do it all!

I assume we'll see a new version of their old ship next week.  Or will they spend the rest of the series flying around in the dinobot ship?

How many times have they destroyed the ship?  It's always rebuilt for next week, he's the professor, damn it!

Yea, I didn't see anything either.  I think they just got a bit lazy with this episode, with the writing and the visual gags.  Probably one of those things that seemed funny on paper but just ran out of steam in the execution.

That's ridiculous! I want character development and growth and drama and consequences from my funny picture cartoon!

oh, pft. didn't deepak chopra teach us that quantum physics means that anything can happen at any time for no reason whatsoever?

I'm sure the professor could talk for hours about the various lengths of wire he used to rebuild the ship each time...

I really wish they'd been more savage on the creationists although them sticking it to people almost as insane, those who put pineapple on pizza made up for it.  I really liked this ep, probably my 2nd or 3rd favourite of the new series

I was laughing from the DOOOOOOMMM, and missed this in the title the first time, pretty funny.

They put the entire "blackboard" on screen for a second after all the switches, pretty easy to freeze and read the whole thing.  Not much else to freeze frame on, thought there would be extra stuff on the magazine covers Scruffy was reading but only the titles were legible and you could read them in real time pretty easy.

This was awfully close to that stargate SG1 episode where they had the same problem.

It always amazes that just when I think they've run out of variations of the spit take joke, they come up with another one...

I wonder how long after this season is over the DVD set will come out?

are there any rumours of a boxed set of the movies? they still seem to be stupidly priced individually.
