Trivia

Although the lunar lander shouldn't be in one complete part, the entire thing (and the flag) is still there. This is explained by a plaque inside the lander that says: "Lander returned to this site by the Historical Sticklers Society". See more »

Goofs

When outside the Apollo 11's lunar module, Fry compares his boot print to the famous print who he says belongs to Neil Armstrong. However, the famous boot print that he was comparing his boot to belonged to Buzz Aldrin. See more »

Introducing the rest of the Planet Express crew
22 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The series pilot introduced protagonists Fry, Leela and Bender and Fry's distant nephew Professor Farnsworth and this episode introduces the rest of the workforce. There is bureaucrat Hermes, Dr. Zoidberg who is some sort of crustacean and knows little about human anatomy and Amy Wong, an intern whose main qualification for the job is having the same blood type as the professor! This episode also sees the new crew's first mission… they are to deliver a crate to the moon. Fry thinks this is the greatest thing ever until he learns that the highlight of a trip to the moon is a visit to a tacky theme park. He is so disappointed that he decides to go and explore the real moon outside the dome. Things don't go too well outside and he, Leela and Bender find themselves fleeing from a farmer who accuses Bender of interfering with his robot-daughter. Meanwhile Amy is having difficulties having accidentally dropped the ship's keys into one of the games in the theme park.

This episode wasn't as good as the pilot but it was still fairly entertaining and introduced several new characters. Amy got the best introduction and looks set to become one of the main group; Zoidberg has the potential to be the funniest of the new characters though. The story about them going to the moon was okay but lacked the excitement of the chase in the pilot. Still there were some good laughs and it was good that it was explained why the famous Lunar lander was still on the moon when the Astronauts used it to depart in 1969!
