Futurama: "In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" Review Episode 2, Season 6

This is our review of the second of two new Futurama episodes that aired back-to-back on June 24th. Click here to see our review of the first episode.

The second of two new episodes on Thursday did a much better job of reestablishing a weekly series quality to Futurama than the premiere. While "Rebirth" was forced to reacquaint and catch people up, "In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" was essentially a standalone episode delivering a lot of laughs and a quintessential Futurama story.

"In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" was by all accounts a Zapp Brannigan episode. All the main characters had a role to play, but Zapp was the focus throughout, starting with his hilarious black and white 1950's B-movie serial-style dreams. These bits perfectly bookended the episode. All of the segments were great, but I got an extra kick out of seeing Zapp's dream version of Fry as a dopey looking eight-year-old with no lines. Following Zapp through the episode was more fun than I first thought it would be. Too much Zapp can often wear on an episode, but "In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" kept the character interesting and more than just the one-note pompous jerk he can sometimes be.

The way I always saw it Leela didn't really despise the thought of having sex with Zapp again the whole time she just didn't want to deal with the consequences that came with sleeping with Zapp the first time.
