Trivia

The song playing while the 3 are traveling forward in time is based on 'In the Year 2525', recorded by Zager and Evans in 1969. Although the version in this episode more closely resembles the theme song from the short-lived scifi action show "Cleopatra 2525." See more »

Goofs

Since the time travelers saw everything relative to the geographical position of the Planet Express office, there's no way the Professor could have shot Hitler. See more »

best of the season so far
5 August 2010 | by cinematicusSee all my reviews

This episode is classic Futurama - something that's been missing since the series' end and in this season/series so far.

It's got the elements that made Futurama such a good show: an amazing voyage, a decent dose of actual science, a sentimental element that somehow lingers for eons of time (in the story), humour in the face of the universe, and bender being impossibly annoying.

i don't recall ever wanting to kick bender's shiny metal a** as much as in this episode. if you watch you'll know why.

the writers for this episode cannot be the same ones that wrote the previous six. I wish they would write more of the episodes since their material so obviously is the essence of Futurama that made the show such a hit in the first five seasons.

One thing i miss however is that the graphics could have been more elaborate particularly for the big bang.
