I was wondering when they'd do an Avatar bit. (Also, did it really take them this long to do Tron and Minority Report?)

Didn't they do various Tron references and designs when they went into the virtual Internet back in the original series?

Maybe, but I think this one was just so awesome that it made us all forget about that!!!

Loved loved LOVED this latest episode.  It was pure awesome.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

Yes, best episode of this mini season.  They are getting a little ham-handed with their science references, though.

Best new episode is still The Late Philip J Fry.

I'll put another "best of the season so far" vote in for this one.

So many combinations of movies thrown together in this one, I counted at least 5.

Loved the Fresnel lens addition to the light cycle chase.

Did anyone else try green/red glasses on the Pandora bit?  I didn't notice any depth, it seems like they just took the 2D image and duplicated it in green and red.

You're such a nerd......but I would have done it if I had glasses.

I'm sure that's what they did.... probably to cause even more of an eyestrain to get their point across. Caricature of an effect. I like it.

Did some freeze frames and the difference between the 2 colors is constant over the entire image, so that is what they did, a red/green flat image...

And I just noticed Bender's eyes in that scene, don't know how I missed it the first time watching.

God, that part of the episode hurt my eyes.

Everything else was pretty good though. I hope we get an Amy episode soon.

Or maybe one for Scruffy.

Okay, that may have been another Bender-focused episode, but I have to say, Zoidberg stole the f#@!ng show.

This show could have had NOTHING except the Leno joke and still would have been amazing, luckily everything else was great too.  LOVED this ep

I heartily guffawed at several points during this episode.  Felt great!
