Futurama Review: "Fry Am the Egg Man"

by at . Comments

"Fry Am the Egg Man" wasn’t one of Futurama’s best episodes.

The only jokes that made me laugh were the fast food restaurants having cheese fillings for everything and the amount of drinking that went on. But the monster really wasn’t that entertaining, nor was setting him free in his home planet.

It's a Monster!
I was trying to figure out if there was something poignant about the episode. Was it commenting about the cyclical nature of how we get our food? Even if it’s organic, that doesn’t automatically make it good for you.

In the end, if there was a message, I didn’t really end up caring because most of the jokes weren’t very good. There were a few good ones, mainly Amy comparing the monster to Zoidberg and Fry’s montage with the monster.

Hopefully Futurama can do better next week.

Check out some of my favorite quotes from the episode below:

It sucked. Loved the title card.

This episode reminded me of the 2011 movie "Red Riding Hood," same hype and same boring ending. "And I would I have got away of writing the episode, if it weren't for those roteen critics."
