Futurama, A Swan Song - Week 7

Previously on Futurama, A Swan Song: Week 6. And now, a new mini-spoilery-review:

Assie Come Home
Featuring a new invisible character who doesn't speak

Bender's parts go missing after the Planet Express crew makes a stop on a planet ruled by gangs. So what remains of the beer-loving robot, Leela and Fry go on a quest across the universe to find Bender's head, arms, legs and body. But one particular shiny part is still lacking…
Yet another Bender-centric storyline. That makes it three this broadcast season, and more than enough. The jokes work, but it feels like, after 7 seasons, the Futurama writers are getting low on script ideas. This episode is unsurprising from beginning to end, and, one could almost say, uneventful. The main interest of it is seeing fan favourite characters like Hedonismbot again, or spotting pop culture references.
Favourite Quote
Leela: "Hang on. If we're delivering a package to criminals, I want to know what's in it."
Professor Farnsworth: "I have no idea Leela, but I'll tell you the same thing they told me: STOP ASKING QUESTIONS OLD MAN, AND WE'LL SLIP YOU AN EXTRA FIVE GRAND THAT YOUR CREW DOESN'T NEED TO KNOW ABOUT!"

5 episodes left…
