Fry meets his twentieth century girl friend
3 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After Fry and Bender take the ship for a spin, dragging the Planet Express building with them, they are fired along with Leela; she is fired for leaving the keys where they could find them! Needing jobs Leela reinstalls their old career chips but due to a mix up Fry ends up working at the cryogenic storage facility and Leela ends up delivering pizza. When he opens one of the tubes Fry has quite a surprise; it contains his old girlfriend Michelle. Unlike Fry she finds it impossible to adjust to life in the year 3000 so suggests they both freeze themselves again. When the tube opens they find themselves in what appears to be a post-apocalyptic wasteland run by feral children... when they learn the truth it is worse than they imagined... they are in LA!

This isn't a classic episode but it does contain a good number of laughs; I particularly liked Bender's misused of the probulator! Fry's ex girlfriend Michelle wasn't a great character but then I'm sure we are meant to dislike her; after all she wants to take Fry away from his friends and treats him like dirt. The 'future' scenes were pretty funny; especially on first viewing when it looks as if he really might be in the year 4000; obviously the series requires it that he is still in the year 3000 and that gives us a great gag at the expense of LA.
