Storyline

A strangely prophetic episode commenting on the rise of social networking. Dear, old Mom is still up to her megalomaniacal plottings. This time, she's concocted a grand scheme to control consumers with a fancy new gadget: the EyePhone. Facebook, YouTube, Twitter... they're all present, accounted for and poked fun at as a story involving a "who can get the most followers" contest between Fry and Bender emerges. Written by Anonymous

A fun look at the technological society and where it is headed
2 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode of Futurama provides us with a look at where our society is headed. From the beginning, Futurama has always made an effort to make fun of the cult followings of our time and this episode did not fall short. With quick humor such as everyone quickly throwing away their phones to get the new eyephone to waiting "online" to get the phone to the viral video sensations, not one part of our modern day society isn't thrown back at us via jokes that are funny because of their truth. The return of Mom also provides for a hilarious look at how businesses depend on what we do with their product to make something happen. This truly was one of Futuramas best episodes to date. From recognizing our dependency on our phones and even our want to gain the most followers online, this episode is truly one that sets the tone of how Futurama should flow and will want to keep us returning for many weeks to come.
