Bender gets parents! Yes! You heard it right! After harboring a seething jealousy that Leela and Amy were speaking of their parents. Bender gets his wish. The father looked like that 'Danger Will Robinson' robot from Lost In Space, and The mother struck a resemblence to Rosie from The Jetsons. Bender interacting with his parents was great fun! Farnsworth's quest to find his missing Doomsday device, where he suspected the Robot Mafia, Mom's Sons, and even Nixon and Cheney! (Liked the scene with Cheney and the rifle!) It was funny when Bender's parents thought Fry was a bad influence! (Guess all robots hate humans). Liked seeing Fry in pajamas. Hilarious how Ignar thought he got his face ripped off. Fry in the cardboard box reminded me of the recession that's been going on and how people are living like that after getting kicked out of their homes.
The part where Leela and Farnsworth find out it was Wernstrom, WERNSTROM! who stole the device was awesome, too! It was good to see Leela and Farnsworth and then his water balloon bomb frees them and get out of it themselves. I was fine with leela getting kidnapped along with Farnsworth. I don't mind seeing Leela be in trouble and get captured along with someone else like Fry and both Fry and Bender. Just like I didn't mind seeing Leela and Amy get dragged away by caveman in "A Clockwork Origin". It was like a Batman and Robin moment. I also liked the heartfelt ending. Excellent way to end the comics for the year! Even the H.G. Blob backstory was cool, too! Wonder where Hermes and Zoidberg were? The best line was when Farnsworth said, "You Will Obey Humans!" LOL! Another must have for any fan!
