All I have to say about that scene is  that was one ugly wedding dress that Leela was wearing.

I had to notice, in the wedding scene, where Fry kisses Leela, she fights back for a bit, but then, when the commercial ends and the show comes back on, she seems to be kissing him back, strange
I guess it was a change in storyboard layout:
- First planned time jump: To the time when they already were declared man and wife, when Leela "woke up" during the kiss.
- They changed the scene to include the "declare you man and wife" phrase by preacherbot. and either forgot to adjust the faces during the kiss, or didn't care ("What the heck...no one will notice, and we're on a budget")

This is one of the best episodes of the series. It has everything: sci-fi, crazy monsters, shippiness, and the Professor as his very best, senile self.

The plot is simply brilliant, and the humor is spot-on. If there is any single episode in the series that accurately defines its best qualities, this would be it. 10/10.

Very humorous episode, and where did the emotional ending come from? This episode is what the show is about: Crazy Basketball players that are very smart in mathematics with crazy alien monsters attacking them, while time randomly skips forward for scientific reasons that are so complicated that it would be easier to shove a phone booth up your ass. 9/10

Not at all. The timeskips are explicitly stated to be due to the destabilisation of the nebula from which the chronitons were harvested (destabilisation which was caused by that harvesting, in fact). Chronitons were escaping from the nebula, and messing up the strict linear flow of time in their wake. So, time "skips". The "chroniton" is a fictional particle, and is used merely as a mcguffin in order to force the events of the episode towards their conclusion (which is the point of the ep).

So, neither scientific nor complicated.

Crazy Basketball players that are very smart in mathematics with crazy alien monsters attacking them

This isn't strictly right either. There are no crazy alien monsters attacking people. Instead, the mathematically gifted basketballers play sports against a team of mutant atomic supermen.

Reviews like that make me wonder whether people watched the episode, or decided to review it after reading the description in the TV times.

I guess in the show, but in reality, if this was to happen, then it would be much more complex, right?

Just eating dinner and watching this episode now on DVD.  My favorite joke from this episode has always been when Linda is reporting the news while time skips:

Time continues to skip forward randomly. Details at elev...
(skip)
This is the news at 11. The mysterious and unexplained...
(skip)
Turning to entertainment news, teen singer Wendy might just be the latest...
(skip)
...won three Grammys last night...
(skip)
...found dead in her bathtub.

9/10

Great episode, without a doubt a Classic. It has a bunch of good gags, and the emotion of Fry trying to win Leela over is felt. It can totally relate to me, it makes me hate myself.

I like the introduction to the Globetrotters as well, but I still kind of wished that the first act was different, and involved different new characters instead of the Globetrotters. I mean I like them, especially how often they appear to help solve mathematical problems with the Professor. But still, the first act could have been a little better.

I enjoyed this episode a lot. It contained lots of comedy and emotion. There's not much that could be done to improve this episode, in my opinion.
