In the future pro-wrestling is fixed!
19 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Hermes returns from the Brainslug Planet with a Brainslug attached to his head the rest of the Planet Express crew decide to take some time off and go to the cinema. During the film Bender annoys the patron in front of him to the point that he loses his temper... Bender had no idea that he was annoying 'The Masked Unit'; star of the Ultimate Robot Fighting League. Obviously Bender can't win fairly but when The Masked Unit slips of some spilt oil the chairman of the league sees potential in having Bender as a fighter. After winning his first fight he learns that the fights are fixed but with the money rolling in and floozies on each arm he doesn't care... until it is decided he isn't popular enough to be a winner and is ordered to fight in a pink tutu under the name 'The Gender Bender' Leela acts as his trainer as he prepares for his next fight but when the fight begins she is shocked to learn that his opponent is actually being remotely controlled by the martial arts instructor who wouldn't let her compete because she was a girl... clearly it is time for her to get her revenge!

There are plenty of laughs to be had in this episode; it was good to see the Brainslugs appearing again as they are pretty funny and Bender's obnoxious behaviour was hilarious as was seeing Bender in a pink tutu and blond wig. While pro-wrestling is a fairly easy target for mockery it was done in a way that provided plenty of laughs; mostly from the various 'unpopular' robots Bender beats in the rigged fights. Leela's old instructor Master Fnog was pretty funny too.
