  • I was incredibly harsh on this after only having seen it once

    This still isn't one of my favourites, as I dislike it when this show goes away from comedy for emotion, and some humour really suffered here as a result. Bender's magician act, for example, was pretty unfunny, and some of Zoidy and the Professor's lines seemed a little laboured. Apart from that, though, this was pretty good. I liked Leela and Amy's thing and Fry's reaction, it was great to get more insight into Fry's life before he was frozen, and the tragic plot was executed beautifully. The way the two plotlines wound together was nice, and there were a few great jokes, especially at the beginning of the future storyline and in the pre-freezing flashbacks, and some cool touches, such as Seymour singing 'Walking on Sunshine' and Nibbler's eye at the cryogenics lab. Bender was generally rather annoying, but he didn't feature too heavily. The final scene was harrowing, and one of the best emotional scenes seen on the show.
