Zoidberg gets frisky
15 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Zoidberg accompanies Fry, Leela and Amy to the gym nobody expected him to get so worked up that he'd run amok and frighten several pregnant women into giving birth in the pool! It turns out it is the mating season for his species and the only solution is to take him back to his home planet. Once there he calms down but has no luck attracting a mate. He meets Edna, an old friend, but she has no interest in mating with him till Fry helps him out with a few seduction techniques. All is going well until she learns it is Fry who was coming up with everything; she then falls for Fry, much to his disgust and Zoidberg's chagrin. Zoidberg challenges Fry to the ritual fight to the death to win Edna's affections... it looks as though the Planet Express team might be down one member!

This episode was a lot of fun; it was great to see Dr Zoidberg take centre stage for once. There was a lot to laugh at; especially if you are a fan of the original series of Star Trek as this is heavily based on the episode 'Amok Time'... Zoidberg's planet even has the music from that episode as its anthem! Given the subject matter many of the jokes are of a 'reproductive nature' which some people my find a bit crude; personally I though they were hilarious!
