Futurama: The First
5 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this first episode is a good starting point to the whole series. In it it explains how fry got into the past and puts together the main characters and their reasons for interaction. It also has a few hidden features in it. Like theirs a scene were Fry and Bender run into a head museum and one of the heads is the head of Matt Groening the creator of the show and The Simpsons. It also has like said in the main menu a few errors in it; were the bars Bender bends off mysteriously appear again then vanish. It was they shows first episodes they still were working out the kinks so give them a little slack. So in general its a good starting base to a great animated comedy in my opinion.
