I love this episode because its one of the first ones i ever saw and also the very first one i downloaded. When ever i think of futurama i think of this episode. I really like it becasue it gives so much information about the year 3000 on earth, instead of them running around some abstract planet with some crazy plot.

I personally think that this episode is a classic and i will keep watching it again and again whenever i feel the need for some futurama.

I wrote this a few weeks after the last episode in season five. Theres no more episodes , arhg

This is corny but hilarious.
Best line:
Mayor Poopenmeyer: And for outstanding bravery, I present this Glemmy award to Professor Hubert Farnsworth, which we confinscated from Wernstrom, after it became apparent that he was a Jackass

Farnsworth can hold his own, and for all you shallow guys out there it was excellent satire and commentary on how we treat garbage.. great episode

The most funniest modern day jokes plus the look of the future. Matt keeps coming up with more and more funnier jokes I really think he could go into ten seasons!

I can't believe more people didn't mention Fry's reaction to the garbage ball! Seriously, I must have rewound and watched that on the DVD about 25 times in a row at least 10 times. That is truly a noise of greatness. The timer part also rules. Also, just the part in the video where they're playing that same music when the porno starts up...oh I won't get into detail on that. By far the best one of the first season. And as far as the Bart Simpson joke, I found David Cohen comment on the commentary funnier than the joke itself..."How did we ever get permission to use that sound clip?"

We want to tell you our opinion about this episode. We watched it in our English lesson, because we had the topic environment.
This is our favourite episode. It is just great how Matt Groening showed the spirit of the 20th century and how it is going to destroy the world suffocating under mountains of garbage. We also liked the competition between Warnstroem and Prof. Farnsworth. That showed in a funny way how people compete for a bit of glory and acknowledgement. The insertion of the Simpsons made the whole episode round of.
It was quite a good thought to think of Armageddon and to change the episode into a Futurama-like failure you can laugh about.
