I was expecting so much from this episode that it flopped for me. I liked it for a Futurama episode, don't get me wrong, but so much hype was generated for, what, the past year that it was supposed to be on that it fell flat (Thanks Fox!).
I did like finally seeing the reason behind the Nibbler and Nibbler/Fry shadows in 1999, but thought it'd be a little deeper than it was.
Too bad FOX continues to bone this truly funny show.

Wow! This was a really cool episode! It put a different look on the whole series. I'd always thought Fry had put himself in the future by falling off his chair. But it was really Nibbler. Well, then again, it ended up being Fry who put himself in the future after all. Well, still, really cool episode! I am partial to time travel movies and shows.

I liked the episode very much. It tied a lot of things in. However, it was bittersweet. Since they are letting the cat out of the bag on a lot of secrets, it is only too obvious that there is no hope for the continuation of the series. I think that this would have been the perfect series ender. It leaves it very open-ended. We know why Fry came to the future and that in the end it was what he really wanted. He served a purpose in the future. And everyone lives happily ever after. What it also does is it leaves open the possibility for the series to continue at some other point. So I think it provides a sense of finality, but leaves the door open.

A great episode that tied it all together, but if this is the last (new) episode, they blew it with one small omission:

This was the perfect opportunity for Fry to rescue Seymour before pushing himself (and Seymour) into the freezer.

One of the worst episode. Not funny, stupid plot. Dont make much sense. I felt like I was watching an SImpsons episode. I expected a better plot.

Amazing episode! I guess I'm just a hopeless romantic, but it's these episodes that I feel really are the brilliance of Futurama. No other cartoon can cause such emotion in the audiance. Hell, it gives most any other show a run for it's money. It's hillarious and timeless, and it's a shame that Futurama won't be around much longer for more of these gems to pop up.
