Fry: The most important person in the Universe!
12 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Fry is feeling down; Leela is off on a date with the Mayor's Aide and he is left taking Nibbler for a late night walk. Feeling useless he sits down and starts talking to Nibbler and much to his surprise Nibbler replies. It turns out the Nibblonians need him once again; this time he must save the universe from the Giant Brains. They are constructing the Infosphere a giant depository of all knowledge and once they have finally recorded everything they will destroy the universe to stop more knowledge being created. Because Fry lacks the Delta brainwave he is the only person who can infiltrate the Infosphere and destroy it! There is one think the Nibblonians didn't think of though... the Brains inform Fry that it was the Nibblonians were the ones responsible for Fry getting frozen in the first place and they can send him back so he can stop himself getting frozen!

This was another fine episode and an important one too as it gives us more details about his past; not only do we learn that Nibbler froze him we also learn that Fry's strange brain is related to the events shown in 'Roswell that Ends Well'... or as Fry puts it 'He did the nasty in the pasty'! One of the highlights of this episode is the way in links back to events in previous episode; it also links back to the very start of the story. It was good to see the Nibblonians again; Nibbler is fun enough when he is pretending to be Leela's pet but it is funnier when they are talking seriously while being overly cute. The subplot involving Leela and the Mayor's Aide provided a few chuckles and it was great to see her response when he refused to share the ice rink with a group of orphans.
