One of the funniest episodes from the second season. The plot isn't up to much, being a very simple and somewhat sitcom-y set-up, but it's more of a full on comedy episode and it is very, very funny -mostly thanks to Zapp Brannigan who is on top form as usual.

Zapp Brannigan returns to Futurama in "Brannigan, Begin Again", this time as an employee of Planet Express after he and Kif are dismissed from the DOOP for Brannigan's incompetence. Fry and Bender quickly show a preference for his carefree style, as opposed to Leela's tight ship, and after a delivery goes awry they revolt against Leela and install Brannigan as the new captain. Naturally, Brannigan enlists Fry and Bender in a hare-brained and suicidal scheme to get himself reinstated at the DOOP, forcing Fry and Bender to reinstate Leela as captain. Though most of the other characters don't have much to offer, Zapp Brannigan is once again in peak comic form throughout the episode, and although Brannigan's scheme fails, the method by which Brannigan finally regains his post is hilariously ironic and underhanded, once again employing Futurama's classic technique of undercutting expected conclusions.
