    Aw man, it ended? Why am I just hearing about this now?


    Well, I'm hoping it was a good one. Now time to wait for someone to post it up on YT. ^^

    I'm sure it'll reair again. The finale was a nice way to end the series. If it was a standalone, it feels cheap with the copout ending which would undo everything fry and leela experienced at the end. If it was to be flawless, I'd have just let it end focused on the 2 of them growing older and just fade to black. But I can't complain too much as this show has more lives than a cat, so an open ending is to be expected. Not too many shows gets to end on their own terms and some ended on cliffhangers, so I'll take what i can get.

    I hated it. I've always hated the saccharine romance between Fry and Leela, espcially when Fry gets sappy or whiney, and I hate the episodes that center on them because they are not very funny, they're boring, and we hardly get to see anything of the other characters. The last new episode of Futurama that I will ever watch was the exact type of episode that I despise. It was like a kick in the teeth.

    It was a great ending to a great series and I'm glad that Fry and Leela ended up together. They were meant to be and the romanace was the best one in a while.

    Really? I thought it was great. I respect your opinion.

    It was mostly good. First half was OK. Second half was good. Netflix should revive the series.

    I know I'm in the minority here but I was immensely disappointed! Mainly because we get almost no Bender. This should have been an ensemble episode. Also did anyone else think the humor was uncharacteristically cheap? The violence was appallingly excessive! Leela loses her hand and Fry gets splattered again and again in shocking gore. I thought I was watching South Park! Not a good thing.
