Simply astounding
26 June 2019 | by benko-duboveckySee all my reviews

It has been nearly 6 years since the premiere of this episode. It has been nearly 6 years, since I first watched it. And I still get goosebumps whenever I just remember it. It is a magnificent piece of art.

The plot is top notch, develops just at the right pace, not too fast or too slow, is not overly convoluted, yet it leaves you in expectations to the very end. Pulling this off in writing is already a feat of its own, however that is not all.

The emotional handling in this episode is great. It makes you laugh (hard), it makes you cry (at least inside). I don't think I ever felt more emotionally touched by a Futurama episode than this one. Sure, there are a couple of other episodes that did make me go soft, but this one took the absolute cake.

Or perhaps it was, because with each passing minute I knew Futurama as a show was coming to an end? Probably. But here's the thing. This episode made me long for more Futurama episodes. And the thing is with the conclusion. It works perfectly in both scenarios - if Futurama never ever comes back, it makes for a beautiful conclusion. If it does come back, it makes for a significant breaking point.

Maybe, it is good that Futurama ended, even if a bit too prematurely. Perhaps, it's better that it came to an end. Unlike The Simpsons that in its current stage is decreasing in quality, and as much I hate to say it, is going on a zombie mode.

Futurama may not be the best-selling show of all time. In fact, corporations kind of seem to hate it. First getting kicked off by FOX, then by Comedy Central. But one thing is unequivocal - this show has some of the most loyal fanbases in the world, and like with every good show has and I dare say will have more followers in the future, and perhaps, just perhaps, one day, Futurama will be revived. It definitely deserves that.

One more thing, if the future was as great and beautiful as was depicted in the show, I'd be excited! :)

We miss you, Futurama <3.
