James Pugh of Playeraffinity: In a previous review, I mentioned how even when Futurama misses a beat, it is still one of the most entertaining shows on television. I feel like that assessment applies to this episode. On it the surface it has all the makings of a classic Futurama episode. However, it never turns the proverbial corner and becomes something special. A Clockwork Origin attempts to tackle the rather large issue of creationism vs. evolution but eventually just skirts the question and offers up some good laughs amongst some uncharacteristic misses.
