Whole lot of fun!
25 November 2014 | by tv_is_my_parentSee all my reviews

You really can't go wrong with a Bender-centric episode. This is one and it's brilliant. He's the funniest character on the show in my opinion.

Bender is sent to a planet consisting only of Robot population where they all hate and missioned to kill humans. Soon Bender gets discovered to be working with humans and Fry and Leela must act as robots to save him.

Based on racial discrimination and with sharp and wit writing and full with satiric lines, this is one of, if not the funniest episode of the first season which is also brilliant. I give it a 9.6/10. Must-watch!
