    Overall, a really good episode.
    I felt like some of the earlier time travel stuff could have been better, but overall, the episode was well done, and quite funny.

    Spoiler:

    Actually, if you consider it to be "paired" universes, there is no paradox.

    Fry 1 skips over Universe 2 and continues on to Universe 3, where the paradox is ended.
    Fry 2 skips over Universe 3 and continues on to Universe 4, where the paradox is ended.

    Because Fry 3 and Fry 4 were killed, there is no continuation past this point. So the time loop is closed and the paradox doomfield collapsed to a singularity.

    The only problem here, is that it raises the question of whether or not Fry 1 really is Fry 1. Odds are we're seeing just another random do-over of the universe, not the very first one. And since it's an odd-numbered universe, the three we saw should have been killed before ever entering the time machine.

    Then again, it's established that each universe can have slight variations, so maybe the universe two universe back had a slight tweak to it that for whatever reason stopped the experiment from ever taking place.

    It would, and that slight tweak (in universe -2) in would be fry/bender/prof being crushed by the time travelers from two more universes back (universe -4).

    Okay that was confusing as hell but basically

    Universe -4: Fry time travels and disappears
    Universe -3: Is skipped over by -4 Fry, while this Fry also time travels and disappears
    Universe -2: The fry from this universe is crushed by the -4 Fry, thus he never goes to Universe 1 and kills the Fry in the show
    Universe -1: crushed by -3 Fry, also does not inferfere with the next loop
    Universe 1: Main universe Fry came from in the episode
    Universe 2: Skipped over by universe 1 Fry, this Fry goes into the future
    Universe 3: This Fry is crushed by 1 Fry
    Universe 4: This Fry is crushed by 2 Fry

    Closed loops that can repeat forever without interfering with each other

    It's one of the better new episodes, yeah. The sequence at the end is amazing, with perfect musical accompaniment too. ( 'Little Bird, Little Bird' by Elizabeth Mitchell)

    Very reminiscent in presentation to the Pizzicato Five sequence at the end of the "Leela's Homeworld" episode, which itself was one of the better episodes from its respective season.

    Good stuff.

    I thought new episode 2 worked solely on the back of Scruffy's great one-liners.

    Scruffy is always wonderful, and somehow hasn't been overused


    also I just realized: the show is now in 3012, which means that Fry is now 37 biologically

    The only part I didn't really get into was their arms ripping off. I found that kinda bizarre and out of left field.

    Yes, more bizarre than two planets being within feet of each other traveling at a casual pace.
