This is probably my favourite enviornmentally conscious episode of Futurama -another of their 'one per season' traditions.

The storyline itself is nothing special, but it's written and directed in such a way so as it never becomes boring for a second. Each of the three lead characters get used in a brilliant way that truly develops them as people and Zoidberg has a big (but not too big) supporting role throughout which adds to the comedy.

Bender's subplot of escaping amongst the penguins is probably amongst the best Futurama subplots of all time. Not only does it compliment the central story well, but it's great on its own merits.

The humour is also on full force here. Not Futurama's funniest, but still very funny with a handful of outstanding jokes thrown in.

Phil Hendrie comes back as a new member of the Waterfall family, but unfortunately, this voice is far less inspired that his previous effort and far less fun to listen to. He also has a few moments of questionable line-delivery that let it down -though that's not to say he's a bad guest at all.

There are lots of great action sequences in this episode and the ending moment is absolutely hilarious.
