This is a fantastic start to a series that constantly performed above my original expectations, and focused on 'continuity' and *gasp* character development.
This first episode takes things slow, doesn't overwork itself, and let's the audience discover on their own the rich characters and story.
The jokes are 'smart', 'fast' amd other words that scare people away these days. Despite the fact

This is a great episode to start off a superb show.
A lot of people were saying they were dissapointed in it not having certain people like Amy or Zoidberg. In my opinion this was a smart move. Most pilot throw all kinds of people at you at first and it throws you away from who the story is about. Having just Fry, Leela and Bender with a small part from the professor was the right way to go. Saving the smaller characters such as Amy, Hermes, and Zoidberg for the second show allowed us to get to know the four main ones.

It was even more fun after watching all the DVD extras about this ep.
"Welcome to the world of tomorrow!" "Shut up, Terry."
