A strangely prophetic episode commenting on the rise of social networking. Dear, old Mom is still up to her megalomaniacal plottings. This time, she's concocted a grand scheme to control consumers with a fancy new gadget: the EyePhone. Facebook, YouTube, Twitter... they're all present, accounted for and poked fun at as a story involving a "who can get the most followers" contest between Fry and Bender emerges. Written by Anonymous

The naming of Leela's boil is a joke reference to Susan Boyle. She is a Scottish singer who came to international public attention when she appeared as a contestant on the TV program Britain's Got Talent on 11 April 2009, singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misérables. See more »


When Bender records the video of the ship crashing it is recorded from the point of view of Hermes, even though Bender is the other side of the table at the time. See more »

Bender: Does it have an app for kising my shiny metal ass?
Dr. Ben Beeler: Several.
Bender: Ooh!

A clunky attempt at satire
6 January 2018 | by alexgwalker-37109See all my reviews

An episode that is light on comedy and wit and relies on tired jokes about the spread of technology. Despite slurm being a coke or Pepsi reference, the eyephone feels a little on th me e nose
