The One With The "What If" Machine...
15 October 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode. It is completely different to any other episode of Futurama, except for the other Anthology Of Interest episode.

In this episode, Professor Farnsworth reveals that he invented a "What If" machine, where you ask it any "what if" question, and it shows you what the answer would be. So of course, the crew decide to use it. Bender asks what it would be like if he were 500 feet tall, which leads to disaster. Leela ask what it would be like if she was more impulsive, which also ends bad, as she ends up murdering the crew. And Fry asks what it would be like if he never came to future, and it turns out it was better to be frozen.

Title Card: Painstakingly Drawn Before A Live Audience

Fun Fact: Scruffy the janitor is named for the first time.

Best part of the episode: The Leela segment, and Zoidberg.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
