I need to make a case here for this being the best Futurama episode ever made. It's not just an Armageddon parody, it's a warning for everyone alive today and everone alive tomorrow, provided you're not dead. This episode has more impact when watched with and open mind than being hit in the nuts by a gladiotorial pugil stick whilst stood with open legs. Best Episode Ever. Well, maybe almost ever. 'Mars Universiry' comes close. And 'The Why of Fry'. Man, the way that 'Scooty Puff Jnr' falls apart is one of the funniest things ever drawn hundreds of times over by Koreans in poor conditions... Hilarious...

There's nothing offensively bad about this episode, but there's also nothing too great about it. It's a decent Farnsworth-centric episode (and probably the first of the series), but there are better disaster-ish episodes to come.
