Fry finds a new place to live
24 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Since his arrival at Planet Express Fry has been sleeping on the table, spilling food and wasting water amongst other annoying things and now the rest of the staff think it is about time he found a place of his own to live. None of the apartments he looks at are suitable though and eventually Bender suggests that Fry moves in with him; there is one problem though; his apartment is about the size of a typical closet. After a few days Fry can take it no more but as luck would have it some friends of the professors just died horribly and their apartment is now available. Fry and Bender move in and soon the once lovely apartment is a total pigsty. It all seems perfect, there is even a closet for Bender to sleep in; unfortunately there is a problem: Bender's antenna blocks the building's TV reception… he has a choice; leave the building or cut off his antenna.

While this isn't one of my favourite episodes it had plenty of good moments and saw the introduction of robot soap-star Calculon and his popular programme 'All My Circuits'. There were a decent number of laughs and a good twist at the end which I hadn't seen coming the first time I watched it and on repeat viewings it is the type of gag one looks forward to. It was amusing to see Bender's reaction to not drinking alcohol; the more he didn't drink the more he acted like a drunk!
