There’s a new episode on tonight. I’m going to watch it even though I’ll probably be disappointed. (Well, I’m used to disappointment. Sometimes I actually look forward to it.) The second episode was better than the first so maybe the trend will continue and episode 3 will top episode 2. It could happen.

But while you’re busy turning gold into cottage cheese, you need to watch out for poor little Beaker!
“Oh, that’s very naughty, Beaker! Now you eat these paper clips this minute.”

Robot politician? That explains a lot. Apparently, he’s the result of faulty programming (probably COBOL or maybe LISP).
