I thought this was really good. When travels back through time and puts himself through the Cryotube.
Because in the Pilot episode, you see nibbler's shadow as Fry falls in... oh well.

He freezes himself,
he's his own grandpa,
lord knows what he'll do to himself in the...oh right...

I hate to give two low ratings in a row, but I'm not that big on the big episodes like this. It was good, up to the point where they threw away all the comedy, for a plot-oriented episode. I appreciate them doing this, but I am still partial to the laugh-a-minute episodes. It was good, and not terrible, by any means, but it could've used more comedy.

A funny "Back to the Future" remake. It is cool to see that a lot of things happened in the first episode! :)

Futurama rocks, Fox sucks.

i actually haven't seen this yet but i get a good idea of it from the framegrabs. its weird are leela and fry going out now or what i thought they started going out when bender had that thing with the ship. also its really good how they gave hints to this episode since the pilot that was cool. i should see this in a few weeks when sky(uk) show it i'm wondering if we might get the episodes before you lot. fox have been right out of order to u americans while sky have been giving us a new episode every week. this sunday they are already showing teenage muntant leela so who knows whats going to happen.

Nice! Ended some plot strings, started some new ones. Confusing, but one of the best episodes in a while!

I loved that episode, although I was hoping that Fry would see Seymour again when he went back...

I thought it was hillarious that Nibbler, when luring Fry to the cryogenics lab, made it a prank call "I, dot, C, dot, Wiener." It shows that Nibbler is not only a cute voracious character but has a sense of humor. A also loved how they made the Nibblonians like little pets ("Purrr... Purrr... STOP THAT!" and the mouse toy)

My favorite part had to be the Scooty Puff Jr.

Loved how they went back using Nibbler and the Brains, plus clarifying why fry is immune to the brains because he is own grandfather.

Also it is Amazing writing with the little touches, because with the flash back of fry’s dog (Jurassic Bark) you can see nibblers eye in the trashcan. Then when fry drops the horn you can see both fry and nibblers shadows.
But even more Amazing is looking back at the first episode when fry gets frozen, nibblers shadow is still on the ground. To think they put that in 64 episodes earlier is amazing.
Excellent Writing, Great Episode
