One of my favourite pure-comedy episodes. You don't watch an episode like this for the story, you watch it to laugh.

That's not to say that the plot is bad, because it's not. The idea of a human being submitted to a robot insane asylum is inspired and the way it plays out is also absolutely wonderful, not only the mild twist which allows Fry out of the asylum but also the climax featuring Roberto (who debuts in this episode).

But as already implied, the episode is downright hilarious. The jokes are on full-form from start to finish -Futurama doesn't get much funnier than this.

The mixture of hilarity with a strong plot makes for a brilliant episode and one in classic Futurama form (interesting twists and turns and very funny in an original way).

One of the funniest episodes of Futurama! This episode is where Fry and Bender are taken to a Robot mental institution and Fry can't take it. He recovers after believing he is a robot and sent home, but can the crew convince him he is Human? With loads of gags and memorable moments, plus the introduction of Roberto. What could you not like about this episode?

The plot is good and the gags are non-stop. Insane In The Mainframe parodies One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest successfully and the episode is just too funny. Fry's voice as a robot is funny, and his beeping noise is funny when Leela gives him a hug, but Roberto is what steals the show! He just can't stop stabbing things and when he's locked up with Fry in the cell, Bender says "Hey keep it down in there I'm tuning my Banjo!". ROFL! You must see this episode, its just pure laughs and one of the best episodes of Season 3! A 9.5 rounded up to a 10/10
