Great episode! The ending was a little sad for Fry. . .
One funny part:
"Are you really funky enough to be a Globetrotter?"
Bender: "YES!"
"ARE YOU!?"
Bender: "No...but over time my funk level could-"
"ARE YOU!!!??"
Bender: "No."
"DEAL WITH IT."
Funk level? HA HA HA AHA HA AHAHAHAHAA ... AHAHAHAHAH!

This episode undoubtly wins an award for the most original storyline featured in a TV show. The time skip element was both clever and funny (I still have no clue about that nude conga line part yet :D), it helped keeping the episode's pacing really high whilst not confusing the listener at the same time. Have you actually seen a show that goes 2 years ahead in only ONE 24-minute episode? That was a stroke of genius.

As for the plot itself... it contained many funny moments. The introduction of Ethan Bubblegum Tate was nicely made, he had many hilarious lines through the episode. It also had some clever moments between Fry and Leela such as their sudden wedding and divorce (all in only 1 minute!) and it had one of the most haunting and depressing ending sequences ever seen in Futurama or any show (not that it was a bad thing, it was awesome actually). It actually caught me off guard.

This has the makings of a great episode and it does succeed in almost every way. Great stuff.

One of my favorite episodes for two reasons.

1. Bubblegum Tate is my favorite Futurama character ("You are all fools of the highest caliber")
2. Arguably the darkest Futurama ending ever (who wasn't disturbed by that Globetrotters whistling)

YO, IT'S YOUR BOY, BENDERFAN12, GIMMIE PROPS! IT FEELS SOOOO GOOD TO BE BACK ON THE SITE REVIEWIN' ALL THESE EPISODES AND S*** LIKE THAT, YO, SLAP IT HARD, HOMIES, AND GET READY FOR THE REVIEW OF YOUR LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(OR SOMETHIN' LIKE DAT, YO!!!!!!!!!!) (YA'LL KNOW WHAT I'M SAYIN'!!!!!!)

"Oh your God!"(1) This episode was definetly inventive in more ways than one, consistenly funny, very off-beat (even for a "Futurama" episode, what with all the time skips and the Globetrotters coming in on a spaceship from another planet and mutant basketball players and a nude conga line...)and, in many ways thought provoking and touching, with, without a doubt one of the darkest, if not the darkest ending ever, in "Futurama" history.

YO, FOOS!!!!! YA'LL BE LIKIN' DA REVIEW SO FAR, RIIIIIIIGHT!!!!! GOOD, YO!!!!!!!! IT'S NOE THE RAP-OFF PART OF DA REEEEEVIEW WHEN I RAP A LINE FROM A POPULAR RAP SONG AND YA'LL OUT THERE GUESS WHAT SONG AND ARTIST IT IS...
"WELL THE FCC WON'T LET ME BE, WON'T LET ME BE ME, SO LET ME SEE.
THEY TRIED TO SHUT ME DOWN ON MTV, BUT IT FEELS SO EMPTY WITHOUT ME."

IF YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHO THE ARTIST OF THIS SONG IS AND WHAT THE SONG IS CALLED, CALL THE NUMBER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE REVIEW AND IF YOU ARE THE THIRTEENTH CALLER AND YOU ARE CORRECT, YOU WILL RECIEVE A PAIR OF RED TUBE SOCKS AND A SIGNED COPY OF OUR MYSTERY ARTISTS ALBUM, THE EMINEM SHOW, SIGNED BY EMINEM, COMPLETE WITH SUCH HITS AS "CLEANIN' OUT MY CLOSET" AND "WITHOUT ME"...DAMN IT...I JUST GAVE AWAY WHO THE ARTIST WAS DIDN'T I... AND THE NAME OF THE SONG...DAMN, I SUCK!!!...WELL IF YOPU ARE THE LUCKY THIRTEENTH CALLER YOU CAN GO SCREW YOURSELF BECAUSE APPARENTLY I'M OUT OF BUISNESS FOR GIVING AWAY THE ANSWERES TO MY TRIVIA QUESTIONS ONE TOO MANY TIMES...BUT YOU CAN'T BLAME ME...IT'S SOOOOO HARD NOT TO...ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU KNOW THE ANSWER...WELL I GUESS IT'S BACK TO SLEEPING UNDER THE WATER FOUNTAIN AT THE PARK FOR ME...UNLESS I SOMEHOW OBTAIN $5,OOO DOLLARS TO BUY MY CONTRACT BACK...HEY, DO ANY OF YOU KIDS OUT THERE READING THIS WAN'T TO LEND AN OLD POOR MAN $5,OO0 BUCKS, EH!!!... YOU'D BE DOING YOURSELF A FOAVOR AS WELL AS ME...IF ANY OF YOU FIND THE HEART TO LEND MY MONEY CALL ME AT 1-800-EMPLOY ME..CALL NOW...REMEMBER, YOU'LL BE DOING YOURSELF A FAVOR AS WELL AS ME...NO, I'M NOT SURE HOW YOU'LL BE DOING YOURSELF A FAVOR, BUT I'M CONFIDENT THAT IN THE LONG RUN, YOU'LL FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF...WHAT WAS I DOING HERE TO BEGIN WITH...OH YAH, WRITING A REVIEW FOR THE "FUTURAMA" EPISODE "TIME KEEPS ON SLIPPIN'"...WELL YOU KNOW WHAT...I'M TOO TIRED FROM ALL THIS MOOCHING OFF GOOD WORKING PEOPLES MONEY TO FINISH WRITING THE REVIEW, SO I THINK I'LL JUST EXIT THE PREMISES NOW AND FEAST ON THE DELICIOUS ROTTING GRASS IN THE BACK OF THIS STUDIO...LATER...AND REMEMBER TO CALL...THE NUMBER, ONCE AGAIN IS 1-800-EMPLOY ME, I REPEAT 1-800- EMPLOY ME... ONE MORE TIME FOR ALL YOU SLOWER READERS OUT THERE, THE NUMBER IS 1-800-EMPLOY ME...PEACE OUT!!!!!!

(1) Props to Bender, my man!!! That quote ("Oh your God!") appears in the "Amazon Womwn in the Mood" episode! That episode was nominated for Outstanding Animated Program episode the yera it was released (but it unfortunatley lost), but that episode is definetly worth check-ch-check-check-check-ch-checking out(2)along with todays episode that I was too lazy to finsh reviewing!

(2) Props to The Beastie Boys for using the ch-check it out line from their song Ch-Check It Out on their most recent album, To the Five Bouroughs. The Beastie Boys are all "Futurama" guest star alum and are a very cool band...definetley worth ch-checking out the new album that hit stores in June 2004!
