I like this episode good. I haven't seen it in a while though so I'll get back on with the discussion later.

TOTPD!

Bender: "What's that? One of those Led Zeppelins I've heard so much about?

Leela: "What's that? One of those Jefferson Starships I've heard so much about?"

Today is Time Keeps On Slippin'

I really liked this episode. Fry really tries to win Leela, which I really liked. But the ending, oh, my heart just broke for Fry. frown

This episode makes me so sad... Every time the ending gets me. I wish so much that Leela had taken the ship out but even if she did  they would have used the damned reset button which has destroyed all my hope in the Fry/Leela ship because there is only so much of the getting together then getting broken apart that I can take before I say fuck this. Leela immediately went to accusing Fry of doing something not even stopping to think that Fry wouldn't do something like that to her. Zapp would be understandable...

One of the series' best espisodes.

Linda: "Turning to entertainment news, teen singer Wendy might just be the latest--"

Linda: "--won three Grammys last night--"

Linda: "--found dead in her bathtub."

I used to never watch this, mainly because the ending was so sad and quite out of keeping with what you'd expect from a show like Futurama but despite the ending (which despite being sad is really quite touching and important to the show as a whole) this episode is golden.

It's absolutely packed full of lines that shouldn't really be funny on the face of it but manage to be hilarious, my personal favourite being this one from the Professor:

"None too soon. While you were gone the Trotters held a news conference to announce that I was a jive sucker."

Why is that funny? I don't have the slightest idea but it's hilarious none the less.

I suppose the hilarity of most of the episode is one of the reasons why the ending is so sad, you don't see it coming but it really fleshes out the character of Fry and highlights just how devoted he is. If Parasites Lost didn't make you even slightly interested in the Fry/Leela sidestory this episode should snare you.

Brilliant episode.

My favourite line in this episode would have to be: "You lost the woman of your dreams, but you still have Zoidberg. YOU ALL STILL HAVE ZOIDBERG!" And I love how passionate Bender is about being a globetrotter and how crushed he is that he didn't get to be one.

Yeah poor Bender getting his dreams crushed. You gotta love Zoidberg, so desperate for friends. I agree with Gorge, there are many funny lines. This episode, made me want the Fry/Leela ship to happen, but something made it end and I shall cross that bridge again

Nice to see the Professor got what he wanted from way back in PYHOMS: A man with a cannon in his chest.

The time skips make for a very funny way of scripting, my personal favourite being: 

"Now to begin the arduous task of attaching it to the ship..."

[skip]

"Off you go, apparently."

The time skips basically make it so they can fit in even more brilliant stuff.  The way I
see it.
Possibly my overall favorite episode, if I had to pick one.


It encompasses everything that's good about Futurama.
And does it in a creative, original way.

I disagree. This episode, although it contained an original premise and some very catchy comedic moments, failed to leave an appropriate emotional impression upon the viewer. If you want an audience to feel sad for a character, or tearful, even, you construct the scene so that it means something, so that there is an underlying message or some interpretation to be had in the events. You want to feel sad and emphasise entirely with the person... Not depressed and heartbroken because the writers you had previously thought were clever, witty geniuses have run out of ending ideas and so instead decided to reveal their true colours as blandly appeasing sadistic bastards.

Cloverfield could pull off ending on a cliffhanger and answering nothing, and in a way, that was its basic strength. Then again, it had spent over an hour stipulating the fact that no questions would be answered, and that the situation was inherently hopeless. Even there, though, the fate of the characters remains uncertain. TKOS simply spent its half hour building up an admittedly admirable plot in the usual respectable detail we've come to expect, only to toss in a blank emotional slate with absolutely no purpose at the last minute.

Thank God you showed up, Xanfor. There's only so much sycophantic praise of Futurama I can take (including from myself).

But with all due respect, Cloverfield sucked and TKOS didn't wink

Personally that part's a favourite of mine too, I'd say this is one of the Professor's best episodes.

I thought it was so funny how we all felt bad for Fry, but some of us felt even worse for Bender not becoming a Globetrotter. wink

The Scary Door in the beginning is probably the best one. Also this episode has one of my favorite lines.

Leela: "Let's take the rest of the morning off and take Fry to do everything he ever wanted to do."

Fry: (sexfully) "Everything?"

Leela: "Except that."

Agreed! It's just an assortment of completely nonsensical events following on from each other yet despite this at the end Bender just says "saw it coming" in the most bored tone imaginable.

I find it amusing anyway.

Not a favourite of mine. Mainly cause I'm not a Lucy Lui fan and Fry's choice of robot download seems crowbarred in (you can imagine the writers just leaving that line blank until they knew which celeb they'd managed to get on the show).

Having said that, the propaganda film about dating robots is great.

The episode was good but it wasn't up to the standards set by other episodes in the season, One of my personal favourite gags was when Fry was feeding the T-Rex and got his hands bitten off. Fry always seems to lose body parts in most seasons.

Having revisited this episode again it really isn't that bad. It's not the best by any stretch of the imagination but it's got one or two fantastic moments, such as:

Leela - "Come on, skipper. It's my last chance to prove I'm not the worst player ever. Please put me in."

Skipper - "No. We're actually winning this game. You only go in as a joke when we're eight runs behind. Or when our other pitchers sneak out early to beat the traffic."

That bit always cracks me up and there are a couple of other moments that provide similar results.

Overall it's not one of the best episodes by a long shot but it's really not as bad as many people seem to make out.

Not the best episode but the opening is fantastic.

Leela: "Oh, put down the binoculars, Fry. The wall of that strip club isn't going to collapse twice in one day."

Fry: "I know, and I've grown to accept that."

Fry: "I know, and I've grown to accept that."


That's another classic! I'd actually forgotten about that one somehow. Then there's the dialogue from Fry that follows.

"Now I'm more interested in that new pizza parlour across the street. Kinda makes me pine for my days as a pizza delivery boy. "Here's you pizza," I'd say. "I didn't order any," they'd say. And then I'd be off to my next adventure. "
