A really good episode with a good story and Fry, Leela and Bender are all great. Almost a 5

Finally, an episode that revolves around Farnsworth!

Leela: Ok, everyone, lets get ready to run. We've got 25 minutes. Uhh, 15 minutes. 5 minutes. 6h minutes?
Bender: Here's your problem. The professor put the countdown on upside down!

There were some funny parts at the beginning and the end of the episode ("plus or minus a few seconds, what with free will and all",) but I think this episode was kind of boring.

This episode can be given nothing less than a 5. "Michael", Dr. M.", and "futuramastinks" are as gay as Fox's reality shows. I think this is the best episode, and I've seen all but the early parts of season 5! Very good jokes (especially the professor's usual insanity.) This was one of the first episodes that I ever saw, and it's what got me hooked on Futurama! Quote: (The Professor at the Academy) "Oh my, I presented the Death Clock last year! I have to make another invention in the next ten minutes! Hmm, perhaps some sort of Death Clock!"

A very funny episode and a good story. (It's a shame lots of season three and season four episodes got rubbish.)
