I thought this latest episode felt a LOT like some of the much much earlier episodes.... Maybe it was the robot devil, or maybe it was the "Fry / Bender friendship" subject matter...  Either way, I liked it a lot.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

What Unabeefer said. That episode was pure grade A quality Futurama and I loved it to death. :^)

The only problem I have with this latest episode is everybody said they didn't believe in non-robot ghosts, but there was clearly a ghost in the episode "Proposition Infinity" which aired last year (the one married to the horse).

For shame, Futurama, for shame.

And who is to say someone didn't build a robot to look like a stereotypical ghost, and that that robot would then die and become a ghost?

Or perhaps it was an alien race that happened to be made of ghosts. Wouldn't be the weirdest thing they've had as an alien species.

Futurama is one of those shows where the concept of cannon (sic) is pretty pointless.

And yet they are one of the few cartoons where they take pretty much every joke and off-hand comment seriously, which is why it was kinda odd to me.

The continuity is REALLY messed up at this point, I'm afraid. Bender's backstory ALONE contradicts itself every time it comes up.

This is exactly how I feel about Aqua Teen Hunger Force. And don't even get me started on South Park. I mean, what is the deal with that Kenny kid?!?

And yet they had a very strange moment of continuity that may have been accidental. In Roswell that Ends Well one of Zoidbergs hearts is removed, to which he says "Take, I've got four of them". Then in Taste of Freedom he claims that two of his three hearts are having attacks.


I hope Nibbler makes an appearance soon. I wonder if they will ever explain what they meant by Leela being "the other".

pretty sure that was just to entice fry into pushing himself into the tube.

Best episode of the season so far, that one. That was great.
