The worst episode up until this point in the series. Whilst the humour is moreorless as good as ever, the plot leaves a lot to be desired, being very simply all about romance and relationships, but not in a way that makes you care for the characters like I usually do with Fry and Leela.

This is a fairly sci-fi episode, what with hovercars and head transplants and picnics on the moons of gas giants. Yet at the same time, it manages to bring characters down to Earth with a bump, being about how office romances never work out, and how romance itself is quite often a massive gamble.

There's quite a bit going on in this episode, and it does a good job of tying it all together. Zoidberg's dialogue is brilliant, Fry's is at worst pretty good, and Amy has some fantastic lines. "We can spit watermelon seeds at Jupiter!" There's not really much to criticise, as everybody's in character and the episode is a visual masterpiece. However, it does follow a predictable plotline, and there are a couple of jokes that aren't that funny. It's not a bad episode, it's just that Futurama is such a good show that PYHOMS tends to fall just a little short of being a perfect episode. That said, it's good television, and has a lot of rewatchability.

It's also got some awesomely funny moments. Zapp in particular is hilarious.

It's a decent episode, with some good background jokes, and some really nerdy stuff in there too. I like it, but there are also episodes that I do like a lot more.
