not the best, not the worst

I'm a big fan of Futurama and have enjoyed many of it's episodes. While the show has always been good, some episodes aren't as good as older ones.this episode focuses on Amy and Leela as they become addicted to nectar that makes them stronger. However this effects their relationships with Fry and Kif. When Amy and Leela's trainer run out of nectar they have to travel to kif's home planet to collect more of the nectar but they use it as an opportunity to improve their relationship with Leela and Amy. This episode was good but it was quite slow and kept twisting and turning that made the story quite hard to follow at times. Despite those problems this episode does have some good aspects, first of all the animation is great, I think that's one thing that the new seasons of futurama does better than the older seasons from the seasons from the early 2000's. Second of all, the characters are great, Amy and Leela are really fun to watch especially when there covered with muscles, it's surprisingly fun to see Kif without Zap brannigan. it's not perfect but it is quite enjoyable.
