I love Lrrr, ruler of Omicron Persei 8, so I was excited to finally see one of the new Futurama episodes dedicated to him. We've had our Zapp Brannigan episode and our Mom episode and I was starting to get worried they were saving Lrrr for the next season. I'm glad they didn't, because "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences" was a heck of a lot of fun.
Back on Omicron Persei 8, Ndnd was nagging Lrrr over his lack of ambition. Lrrr's attempt to conquer Earth failed, and after an argument that ended with a frying pan embedded in his head, Lrrr went to Planet Express to crash. Leela tried to convince the alien to go back and make up with his wife, but Lrrr chose to follow Bender out for drinks and debauchery. Lrrr's mid-life crisis gave the episode lots of opportunities to show the big, angry, bellowing alien conqueror in rather mundane situations. Those juxtapositions are a big part of what I enjoy about Lrrr's appearances on Futurama. Watching him on a date uncomfortably admit, "I just got part way out of a bad relationship," was one of those highlights.
