Stupid, offensive,
2 January 2011 | by Rambo864See all my reviews

I am so sick of low-brow satirizing on contemporary political issues. What is up with this stupid fad on politically charged themes taking over animated shows these days? Can't I just sit down and relax to a cartoon without being proselytized by the creators who use their shows as a medium for discharging their political opinions? I knew exactly when Amy said human-robot sexual relationships were considered taboo that it was going to be parallel to same-sex marriage controversy. I remember when Family Guy started targeting specific political and social issues in their episodes, e.g. "Prick Up Your Ears", "PTV" around their later seasons, is Futurama going to cheapen its comedy so amateur satirists who think "A Modest Proposal" is the best thing ever written in the way of the genre can preach tolerance and libertarianism to our benighted, conservative minds?

What is wrong with this episode is that every jab it makes at contemporary society, every "satire" (if you can call it that) is too obvious for rebuttal. They reduce all points ab absurdum and make it seem like the gay-marriage issue was simply a matter religious bigotry against tolerance. And if you think gay marriage was or is still a controversy solely due to homophobia, get real. Homophobia is a relic of long ago and like racism and sexism is as taboo as anything else. In fact, anybody who still is homophobic is probably more likely to be targeted for abuse (talk about hyper-correction).

This is the worst episode of season 6 and definitely of the bottom tier when it comes to all Futurama episodes. Terrible job at the script, characterization. And to think that most critics reviewed this episode favorably. If you can stretch a social issue ab absurdum and pass it off as satire, monkeys will be pleased. This isn't high art, but I expect some actual comedy of which this episode had none. Season 6 was overall a decent start but it'll never again be like the golden years (seasons 1-3). This episode, like a few others, is a prognosis of the deterioration of quality that all shows undergo. It happened with Family Guy with its renaissance and it'll happen here.
