Excellent episode. couple small flaws.
29 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent episode, but why does a snowstorm start at random, just in time for Fries to need it? And why, the very next day or so, does the female doctor then say "we're in the middle of a heat wave?"

Ah... it's just a cartoon. a good one, even with those flaws.

The animation is top notch though. The Bruce Timm/DC animated universe was still going strong at this point. Some of the scenes, the poses, the character designs, etc... you could freeze frame several shots throughout the episode and have something worth hanging on the wall. Overall, a great show. Just don't spend *too* long thinking about the plot...
