The nearly worthless mon
16 February 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm now half way through volume 7 of Futurama on Netflix and am totally not impressed. Hermes episodes are a rare thing; the first one, How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back, is one of my all-time favourite Futurama episodes, as a brilliant satire of bureaucracy complete with a musical number. There's much less of that in The Six Million Dollar Mon, which is more of a botched Frankenstein parody where the jokes miss more often than they land on target- just like pretty much every volume 7 episode thus far.

It starts when Hermes carries out a performance review at the office and determines he himself is the one who needs firing. He soon begins replacing his body parts with robotic parts to make himself employable again, until he winds up totally machine except for a human brain. Then he considers replacing the brain. Ship of Theseus question- would he still be Hermes anymore? Sure, some jokes might be worth a quiet chuckle- like the robot devil drinking fire and then being scalded by Hermes' spicy food, or the black market surgeon being the most sanitary person in his field. Generally, though, the "humour" is weak, the drama is half-baked, and some parts are likelier to get an "eww" (Roberto eats a piece of Hermes' flesh). The Six Million Dollar Mon, despite its title, isn't a valuable episode- it's chump change.
