:frown:

Anyway, the final episode ever airs next week. Is anyone tuning in for the big sendoff?

I liked it! Very touching, the infinite loop falling was pretty funny, and I liked the callbacks to the moon episode.

Though that last third did kind of rob the supporting cast of a final send-off, I guess. But whatevs.

Yeah, I was thinking about that. It started become clear that it was going to be all Leela and Fry from there on.

I've been re-watching this series in bits and pieces. One thing that I noticed was that in the very first episode when Fry falls into the cryogenic chamber, you can actually see Nibbler's shadow next to his chair tipping over. I never noticed that before, but upon some research, it turns out that it was planned that Nibbler was the one to send Fry into the future, years before that plot point was actually revealed on the show. All this time I always thought that it was just a clever retcon, but it was actually planned, which surprised me. Then again, it probably shouldn't have surprised me too much since I do know that Leela's origin story was also planned out ahead of time. In the first episode featuring the crew running into the Sewer Mutants, you can actually see Leela's parents among the crowd (once again, years before this was actually revealed on the show).

The commentary for the episode (which was before the episode in question was made or aired) hinted at it and even told you where to look for a "surprise". Futurama was extremely well planned from conception. Those first four seasons are still pretty top notch.
