This Week in Futurama - 8/19/10

More like Last Week In... because I'm terrible and actually saw The Expendables last Thursday and forgot to watch the new episode on my DVR...

Episode 10 - "The Prisoner of Benda"

When the King of Robo-Hungary comes to New New York, Bender hatches a plan to steal his priceless crown using the Professor's latest invention, the body-switcher. But there's one catch about the switcher, the switchees can't switch back without 2 extra people, which causes a whole mess of problems when not every is in the same room.

There are a lot of great parts in this episode, Scruffy's almost tearful moment with his humanized wash-bucket, the gross-out love scene between Fry and Leela (in Zoidberg and the Professor's bodies mind you), any and all moments related to Robo-Hungary, and the entire end fight scene. This was just a really well thought, funny, and just overall great episode that really evoked the feeling of classic Futurama's best episodes. It's nice to see that at least this one rare time, there was two great episodes in a row, which almost makes up for the awfulness that was "That Darn Katz!".

Overall Score: 9.6/10
