Trivia

When Prof. Hubert Farnsworth connects his crew to a source of knowledge, to the Internet for the first time, big pink shining ball appears in front of them and "Thus Spoke Zarathustra", aka "Sunrise" by Johann Strauss can be heard. This is reference to an iconic opening scene from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). See more »

Leela meets another Cyclops
21 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When the crew go on line Leela meets a fellow Cyclops named Alkazar while playing a video game; unfortunately Fry 'kills' him before they can exchange details... it looks as though she has lost the one chance she had to find out more about her species. That is until she receives an email from him while on their next delivery mission; she ditches the cargo and heads straight for Cyclopia. Once there Alkazar tells her that he was the only person to survive an attack on their planet leaving them the last two Cyclops in the universe. As such they are the last hope for the species so quickly end up in bed together! The next morning Alkazar isn't the polite attentive man he was before; in fact he is a slob who expects Leela to be at his beck and call. She knows he is no good for her but she also knows that for her species to survive she must stay with him. Fry realises just how bad Alkazar is but needs to find a way to prove to Leela just how bad he is before they get married.

This episode should please fans of Leela as she gets to take centre stage and even references her voice actress, Katey Sagal's, other well known series 'Married with Children'... although I confess I only realised it was a reference when told about it later as that series didn't air here! The early internet scenes should provide many laughs as they fight there way through pop-up ads (remember those?!) before finding sites advertising a wide variety of pornography. When they get to Cyclopia the laughs reduce slightly as this section is more plot driven; that isn't to say it isn't entertaining though and there is a great twist that the end that I won't risk spoiling.
