one of my favorite episodes - especially the end, where Fry finaly makes it to do something right... you know ;-)

I think that this episode is one of the best Futurama has to offer. Its use of dramatic irony and pathos rivaled Shakespeare's in my opinion. It showed the unfair nature of the Universe, the impartiality of circumstance and fate, and among other things, the fact that even though love might be meant to be, it is doomed from the outset by circumstances outside of a person's control and foresight.

The end of the episode ended on such a potent down note that it was difficult to remember that it was a Matt Groening cartoon. I think that it was specifically meant to expand the scope of the show, to make it not only a quick witty animated sitcom, but a platform for exploring and portraying deep philisophical and socially significant metaphysical meaning.

I wouldn't say this about any other of the episodes, although I like them very much. But this episode is an important one in that it probes deeper into the mysteries and complexities of life than any other.

It's surprising this one isn't rated higher.Brilliantly written,although it's true that a lot of it revolves around the one trick joke of the time warping back and forth.I loved the actual emotion involved with Fry along with Bender's surprisingly touching desire to be a Globetrotter.This legitimate emotional content actually works here,just as the phony sentimental content in a few of the other episodes really doesn't work.Bravo to the writers on this one.

Kept me laughing the whole time espically when Proffeser Farnsworth is speeding ahead through time. The ending touched me how instead of a great opera song it was a simple tune.

This episode was alright. The first time I saw it on Fox I thought it was ok. The second time I saw it I thought it was better. My favorite part of the episode is when Fry and Leela get married and then divorced. That part was really funny. I also feel really bad for Fry in the end. I think Leela was a little harsh on him.

Ending was sort of sad. You can really tell how much Fry is in love with Leela.

Best line, as usual came from Prof. Farnsworth-
"I may be an old man-in fact I'm fairly sure I am."
