A very under-rated episode. It's no masterpiece, but it's far from one of the worst episodes as it's often labelled.

The first act is absolutely superb. It just goes downhill as the plot progresses. I've always liked Amy and Kif's relationship and feel as if it gives both characters a lot of depth, basically preventing them from being completely two-dimensional. The first act is also very Zapp Brannigan-heavy which is always a good thing. It keeps it quick and funny.

The overall concept of Amy and Kif having children is horrible and the sort of thing that might signal that a show has jumped the shark, but they're to stay in a larval stage for 20 years so it's fine... so long as we never see them again.

There's a lot of good jokes, but again, mostly all in the first act. The humour dries up a bit as the episode progresses. Altogether, it's not a bad episode at all, even if it's not one of the all time best.

Probably my least favourite Futurama episode of the original run. Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch was quite a boring episode, and Kif getting pregnant seemed a bit stupid to be honest. One joke I did like in this episode was the Angry Dome with Farnsworth, but again, only the first act is any decent due to Zapp delivering most of the jokes. The episode goes slowly downhill when it focuses totally on Amy and Kif, which is roughly the 2nd act onwards, though there is still the occassional joke that pops up (Bender being spit out of the frog, and saying "I'm back baby!", which always gives me a laugh)

The episode reveals that Leela accidently impregnates Kif by touching his hand, and to be honest it is a little cringeworthy. It annoys me a little on the continuity side of things, but it doesn't happen for a couple of years I guess. I rate this one pretty low due to a lack of jokes or a decent plot, but its still a passable 7/10, though one joke I really disliked in this episode was the Zoidberg crying one, it just didn't work for me and felt kind of like Season 6.
