This episode had potential.

It had a lot of good jokes, and the setting and situation was great.

But then they ruined the entire thing.

Fry: But I guess you'll never feel the same way about me as I do about you.
Leela: I guess not.

This portrays Leela as an unfeeling, coldhearted person. And then she just walks away!
(Although she did make up for it slightly.)

Then there's that message being blown up. It's a well known writing rule never to use coincidence to help a character. But this is a point-blank example of when I think it should not be used hurt a character, either.

I liked 'Parasites Lost' because it was artistically sad. This episode was just blatantly sad.

This is one of the three Futurama episodes that actually made me cry...

(See my reviews for 'Love & Rocket', 'Parasites Lost', and 'Leela's Homeworld'.)

i only had 1 problem with this episode. bcoz of the time skips everything was being moved in2 the future in2 the places they would b, but when every1 had 2 "clear out" coz of the circus, they stayed in the same place! other than that, it was one of the darker ending but as i sed 2 comments previous, i loved this episode

This was excellent. The time skips were funny. I knew they were going to happen, but I wasn't dure when, so when they started during the basketball game I was ROTFL! Classic.

This is my favorite episode. It was so funny all the way through. I'm not even a fan of basketball but i thought it was amazing. The ending was great, a tear came to my eye. ARE YOU FUNKY ENOUGH TO BE A GLOBETROTTER?
