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 clunky attempt at satire
6 January 2018 | by alexgwalker-37109See all my reviews

An episode that is light on comedy and wit and relies on tired jokes about the spread of technology. Despite slurm being a coke or Pepsi reference, the eyephone feels a little on th me e nose
