Solar system B (or 1) is a little off. Saturn B's orbit is interior to Jupiter B's. (Unless that was supposed to be Neptune B. But it sure looked like Jupiter B to me.)

As for the ep: it was good, not great. I will not destroy the planet, but neither will I give the formula for immortality.

If possible, I would give it a 3.5 out of 5, or 7 out of 10, or 11 out of 15.7. (Mmm, pie.)

Hermes contemplating firing everybody into the sun...A, was funny, as was Leela knocking out Eveela with the same move.

Too much wasted opportunity with Zoidbergs. Also, we should have seen Leonard Nimoy's head with a goatee in one of the universes. (Or van dyke, or what-the-hell-ever.)

And really, there can only be one universe by definition, so anything we imagine, discover, or create is actually an aspect of the same universe. Not an issue specific to this episode. Or this series. But I digress.

Timo needs to get back on the aol chatroom and stop overanalyzing a cartoon, albeit a great, insightful one.

Wow, a near perfect episode, for me right behind "Where no Fan" and "Roswell". Comparing it to "The Sting" isn't a bright idea, they're two different kinds of episodes. "The Sting" was more of a character driven episode. "Paradox" is more crazy sorta humor that Futurama is best at. Of course the two Farnsworths and Zoidbergs were awesome. Now if you excuse me, I think I'll make a trip to Universe 420.

This in my opinion is the best futurama episode ever made.

The universe in a box concept was great and the implementation of this idea was superb.

Too bad that it was overlooked that destroying one of the two key boxes, thereby destorying the Universe within the box, would as a result destroy the second key box, thereby destroying the Universe that destroyed the first key box.

Also it was already infinity before they pulled the box through, as demonstrated in the above paragraph.

Still, since Futurama is not a serious show, then missing these points is part of what made it so funny.

knew it was going to be good after the first lines.

"oh lordy loo, help!"
"Buddha, Zeus, God, one of you guys do something!"
"Help, Satan, you owe me!"

these lines would probably work for homer simpson too, but the professor is funnier.
