Trivia

Orson Welles' outbursts at the writing of his script as he reads it and points out its flaws it a direct refference to a real life incident in which he similarly complained about the script for a "frozen peas" commercial. Also Maurice Lamarche who voices Orson Welles for this episode did a similar parody of this instance when he voiced "The Brain" (who's voice is based on Orson Welles) on Animaniacs. See more »

Goofs

In a show years ago it was disclosed that television signals took 1000 years to reach Omicron Persei 8, whereas in this show it was immediate. See more »

Even aliens can have mid-life crises.
7 September 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Lurrr, leader of Omicron Persei VIII, and his wife Ndnd are having marital difficulties; he keeps promising to invade somewhere but just sits watching television. Meanwhile on Earth Fry has written a comic and, after his friends give it poor reviews, he heads to Comic-Con to get professional opinions. Keen to get in his wife's good books Lurrr launches an invasion of Earth and arrives during the Comic-Con cosplay competition and is mistaken for an entrant…. Ndnd is unimpressed. Thrown out of his home he turns up at the Planet Express offices and undergoes a classic midlife crisis; buying a flash car, dating a young woman who he thinks is of his own species but turns out to be a human fan-girl in disguise. At this point he realises he wants Ndnd back so a 'War of the Worlds' style fake broadcast is made showing his conquest of Earth… unfortunately Ndnd comes to Earth so he must really occupy the planet.

This is a decent enough episode with quite a few funny moments as well as a few jokes that don't work as well. Fry's comic was so bad that it was moderately funny and Lurrr's date with 'Grrrl' was particularly funny; especially after her true identity is revealed. The events at Comic Con, where the team that make Futurama appear as their own heads talk about making 'Futurella' about somebody from the being frozen till the year 4000 was rather disappointing even if it was meant to be slightly self-mocking. It was also disappointing that something that was very important in an earlier episodes, namely that broadcasts take 1000 years to get from Earth to Omicron Persei VIII, is completely ignored here. Overall this episode was fairly middling buy Futurama standards; entertaining enough but far from being a classic episode.
