After a four year encore on Comedy Central, Futurama bid another fond farewell, as its series finale aired Wednesday night; and though it may be painful to see the show end, we can at least take comfort in knowing that it went out on a high note.
The episode, titled "Meanwhile," began with a fun trip down memory lane, as Fry, Leela and Bender returned to visit the moon -- the first place they went on their very first delivery together. ("Man, we sure used to try harder back then.") Leela's subsequent death scare was a good way to jumpstart Fry's resolve to propose to her, and I particularly enjoyed Fry's late-night "pep talk" with a cranky Bender. ("Come ii-iiin.")
