Meet Flexo... Bender's 'evil' double!
16 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

During a visit to 'Past-O-Rama', a theme park where people can experience what life was like in twentieth century New York, Fry accidentally crashes a car into Flexo, a robot that looks almost identical to Bender; in fact the only difference is that Flexo has a beard. Bender and Flexo soon become great friends and start hanging out together... inevitably Fry hates him. Later on when Planet Express is hired to take a priceless tiara to the Miss Universe competition Flexo is hired to provide extra security. When the inevitable happens and it goes missing in transit Flexo is assumed to be the guilty party... after all none of the regular crew would stoop so low... would they?

There were plenty of laughs to be had in this episode. Past-O-Rama had lots of amusing inaccuracies such as Bender mistaking a phone box for a suicide booth... Fry explains that it was actually used as a bathroom! Flexo was a decent character; not surprising when he is essentially Bender with a goatee. Bob Barker makes an entertaining appearance as his own head although I'm sure he is even funnier if you are familiar with him from 'The Price is Right'. Fans of Zapp Brannigan will be pleased to know that he makes an appearance and once again is less than competent!
