    Last weeks episode wasn't great

    by Porco Drunko

    but overall this season has been pretty strong. Certainly helps remove the bad taste that the movies left... now they just need to decide whether Fry and Leela are in a relationship or not and stick with it. I'm fine with a will they or won't they scenario but the are they or aren't they thing is a real slap in the face for anyone they cared about the relationship that had built up over the first four years of the show.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 3:59 a.m. CST

    wow TNA lost to BBQ Pitmasters

    by RealDoubleJ

    I think that's the clearest sign that Hogan, Flair, Nash, Jarrett & Bischoff have finally lost their powers to draw. On subject, hurrah for Futurama & may next year bring a 24 episode season of equal hilariousness

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 4:48 a.m. CST

    I thought ever since Fry uploaded that video of her...

    by _Venkman

    Their relationship was in trouble. It seems like they're more the occasional fuck buddies for now.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 5:30 a.m. CST

    I enjoyed last weeks episode

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    the only one of this new season i didn't love was the brain swapping episode, but so far futurama has been on of my favourite shows of 2010

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 6:11 a.m. CST

    Watch Futurama so we don't have to save it again.

    by Doctor_Strangepork

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 6:54 a.m. CST

    How can you NOT love the brain-swapping episode?!

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    That was comic GOLD.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 7 a.m. CST

    Brain Swap was great!

    by Gleemonex

    How many other shows present the audience with a logic problem to figure out while they watch?

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 7:03 a.m. CST

    Even if every other episode was crap

    by Gleemonex

    (which they weren't) the season would have been worth it just for 'The Late Philip J Fry' and that wonderful 2525 parody.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 7:07 a.m. CST

    The only really bad one

    by The McPoyle Clan

    was Proposition Infinity.

    Whole lotta Amy fanservice ths season

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    Which is a GOOD thing. :)

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 7:28 a.m. CST

    There are lesser episodes and greater episodes...

    by rbatty024

    but I don't think I found any of them to be failures this season. I agree that the writers have their mojo back after the films. I enjoyed the films, but they paled in comparison to other seasons. There were too many restrictions on the writers. They had to made four individual episodes that some how worked into a ninety minute film. It's hard to worry about that structure and still make something funny and entertaining.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 7:42 a.m. CST

    It's been a bit lumpy for me this year...

    by AndoSoundsLikeAMong

    The start was good but I didn't like the first few after that so much; in fact, the singing butt-boil almost felt like they had finally crossed into the Simpsons latter-days territory of pushing comedy at the expense of the characters too far. It was a cheap and unattractive dig at poor Leela which (although you never know with Futarama) will hopefully never come up again, though that also makes it all the more stupid.<b>Luckily it has been better the last few, although I'm not sure why Ami didn't complain when Kiff's leg got eaten in a recent ep?! She was there?! Ho hum, minor point. Let's hope they make more. Ramble over.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 7:59 a.m. CST

    People have overly nostalgic views of earlier seasons

    by ThrowMeTheIdol

    While there have been a few so-so episodes this season and one obvious clunker (they should stay away from political preaching), the great has outweighed the meh and overall the season is as good or better than any that came before.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8:07 a.m. CST

    Mong

    by ThrowMeTheIdol

    I agree though about the Susan Boyle joke (though I didn't take it as a shot at leela, just as a lame attempt at doing a topical gag). It was so bad that it made me think they were going to flounder this season. Never been so glad to be proven wrong.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8:17 a.m. CST

    Yeah, the Prop Infinity ep was meh

    by FeralAngel

    But I've enjoyed most of the others. I especially liked "The Late Philip J. Fry", "The Duh-Vinci Code" and the "Prisoner of Benda". Great eps. Yeah, and I've said it before but I agree that Fry and Leela's relationship needs to be better handled. I mean, one moment he's angsting over her and the next she's kidnapped and he's more or less meh about it. Same deal with Kif's leg getting pulled off and Amy also being meh. WTF? Those lapses in characterization are things I'd expect from a lesser show, like Fairly Oddparents or something (low blow, I know, but it's the best example, what can I say?) Anyhoo I'll be watching tonight. That was a great clip. (whisper) *bam*!

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8:23 a.m. CST

    Why no love for...

    by KelseysNuts

    ... Burn Notice on this site? Consistently good ratings, Bruce 'The Man' Campbell, very entertaining series. Futurama is a class by itself, but praise for Burn Notice is overdue.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8:26 a.m. CST

    FeralAngel

    by hst666

    I agree with the inconsistency in the relationship. In one episode they appear to be more of a couple and in the next, they don't appear to care about each other.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8:31 a.m. CST

    Herc

    by emteem

    Are you saying that Futurama in general is your favorite half-hour of 2010, or that tonight's episode, specifically, is your favorite half-hour of 2010?

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8:41 a.m. CST

    One reason for people underrating this season...

    by rbatty024

    is because it hasn't been in repeats yet. Futurama, like a great wine, only gets better with age. I don't know what it is, but even the best episodes are even better on repeat viewing. Some gags that were only mildly funny at first, become hilarious latter on. <p> Also, I agree about Burn Notice. Very solidly put together show. Whenever I watch Burn Notice I wonder why network television seem incapable of making something this good. After all, it hits all the requirements. You are capable of watching the episodes out of order (the season long story arcs can be ignored if you want), which makes it easy to syndicate, and it is generally family friendly. It's the kind of show I would love to watch as a kid. But network television is content with shoving out five more lawyer/medical/cop show.

    Twilight Zone S1 BluRay price

    by readyoufool

    has anyone else clicked this and seen what they are charging for it? The discounted price is 70-fucking-dollars! The original price is $100. I hope no one buys it. Apparently the same people who priced Northern Exposure priced this set. I could see asking $40 or maybe even $50 for retail, but $100 for 19 episodes and some special features is disrespectful of the fan base.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 9:42 a.m. CST

    The only complaint I have this season....

    by Darth_Tarantino

    ...is that Fry and Leela's relationship hasn't been solidified. After all the years of waiting to see them finally get together, it seems that their relationship consists of being hopelessly in love one minute and then not giving a shit the next. JUST LET THEM BE A COUPLE!!

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 9:44 a.m. CST

    @ JoeD - Great line from great episode

    by XandmanFan

    Here's another favorite from the same one: Fry: "When are we going to get to <something like drink Slurm>?" Slug-Guy: "Soon enough." Fry: "That's not soon enough."

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 9:47 a.m. CST

    "He was bitten by a radioactive Superman."

    by SpyGuy

    Best line of the season so far, IMHO.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 9:53 a.m. CST

    Here's my candidate for best quote of the season:

    by skimn

    parody (yes, an easy target, I know), then found in whole episodes of other comedies. Futurama IS back baby!

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 2:03 p.m. CST

    too much topical humor this season

    by shatners hairpiece

    can Futurama be dated? I think this season will be the most dated one yet....

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 2:29 p.m. CST

    See, everyone hates on the Robosexual episode...

    by little_lebowski

    but I loved it. Not for the topical content, but because the background gags came so fast and furious that I couldn't stop laughing. <br><br> And because "Back when I was full of piss and vinegar, and by bed wasn't..." is my favorite line of the whole season.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 2:46 p.m. CST

    Okay, I would have got on better with that if I had known who Susan Boyle was. No, I don't live under a rock, just in Japan. Hating YouTube also helps keep my awareness of Western pop culture firmly in the dark; doesn't really help when watching Futurama, though. Jokes about Japanese toliets, now *those* I can understand.

    by Chewtoy

    Yeah, some were definitely weaker... the "Susan Boil" one was among the worst, although the opening recycling stuff was gold and the two headed goat was funny, so even there it's tough to complain.<br><br>This latest episode highlights the one inconsistency that bothers me more than the relationship status... Fry's intelligence. He goes from complete moron who can't keep Lela's secret to actually clever guy solving mysteries and leading the mutants. I usually enjoy "average intelligence" Fry more than "total moron" Fry... It's rare to see both in the same episode though.
