In the grand tradition of Shatner's "Get a life!" skit . . .
18 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is my first full exposure to "Futurama" (and I guess I'd picked it based on the episode title; it looked good), but 'Where No Fan Has Gone Before' is a pretty damn good initiation. It's really just an excuse for getting the TOS cast back together ("Family Guy" did it with TNG), but the actors are good sports about it. It also functions very well as a riff on, well, pretty much everything; behind-the-scenes squabbles, Shatner's spoken word singing career, and even Trekkie culture (Melllvar is one of the funniest things I've seen on TV).

Sendups are a dime-a-dozen . . . but when they're pulled off just right, they're hilarious.

8/10
