Did You Know?


The plot for this story is based on a 1950 short story by Poul Anderson, "Flight to Forever", where time travelers can only move forward, unable to find a time where movement backwards is possible. They eventually travel through to the end of time and witness the rebirth of the universe and the earth before returning to what is their own time. See more »

This is the best episode of Futurama since "The Luck of the Fryrish."
12 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Late Philip J. Fry" is an absolute classic. It is hilarious, mind-boggling, romantic, epic, endlessly thought-provoking, and undeniably the correct choice for the 2011 Outstanding Animated Program Emmy.

This episode will take your mind and your imagination on a trip that only Futurama could, and right when it ends you'll want to immediately watch it again. It is that good, and I think it is arguably the best episode of Futurama ever. This episode is one of the many reasons why the world is a better place now that Futurama is back. I'm so glad it has been renewed through 2013. Keep the new episodes coming.
