Trivia

In this episode, Bender's head is trapped in the past, and the crew digs it up out of the ground when they return to their own time. This is a reference to the _"Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1987)_ episode "Time's Arrow," in which exactly the same thing happens to Data. See more »

Goofs

The P-51A Mustangs were obsolete in 1947. The P-51D Mustang (bubble canopy) would have been the correct fighter - if jets were not available. See more »

The One Where Fry Is His Own Grandfather...
20 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny and brings in such a good concept and idea. I love that they talk about something that is quite recent, but a really long long time ago, for them.

In this episode, an unfortunate mash of a microwave oven and a Supernova, throws the Planet Express crew into a space-time warp. It sends them back into the year 1947, roughly, one thousand and fifty years earlier. They accidentally get a man killed and Fry goes to comfort his finance', or wife, I'm not sure which. They hit it off, but it turns out that the man he got killed, was his grandfather, which makes his girlfriend, his grandmother. Before realizing this fact, Fry had slept with her, and he became his own grandfather. Yeah. Not only is he his own grandfather, but he slept with his grandma. Ew. Meanwhile, Zoidberg gets captured by President Truman, and experimented on, but it's okay because Zoidberg gets all the food he wants, so he's happy.. Leela and The Professor try to work out a way to save him and fix the Planet Express ship, so they can return home.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
