Does anyone know if the new season is for 13 episodes or the 26 that Comedy Central ordered?

Well, tonight's the night. I'm hoping this becomes the one revival that bucks the trend of other series revivals being woefully inferior to the originals.


Enough is enough, Disney. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray.

The first two episodes (the ones they are showing tonight) leaked a few days ago. Word is that they do not dissapoint. And it's not like they've been out of the game for all these years, there were the 4 DTV movies.

Looking forward to the show being back. Twelve episodes this summer, then a holiday special, then another twelve next year and another special. (Comedy Central ordered 26 episodes.)

Some cool preview shots here:

They were pretty decent, I thought.  I wasn't blown away but I'm glad I remembered to watch.

The first episode was a bit weak, but that was to be expected. It was a series relaunch, and they had to tie up a few loose ends.


The second episode was typical Futurama. Full of innuendos, double-entendres, partial nudity, cultural references, and a ludicrous storyline. Yep! They're back all right!


It looks like Leela and Fry will finally hook up, but it might be treated as a "fait accomplit" instead of being drawn out endlessly throughout the series. If they do that, I'll be happy since that means the writing team can concentrate on creating even more ludicrous episodes instead of rehashing the same running gags over and over again.

I loved a couple of the Docs lines - like the Blade Runner joke and having hope, no, not really.

Is it available through any of the streaming sites, like Hulu?

Thanks for the pointer, but I don't have cable, so I have to catch it online (e.g. Hulu) or wait for DVD release :)

First episode was good. 2nd one was definitely classic Futurama. I'm glad it's back.


My daughter was a bit upset by the commercials. She'd never seen the show other than on DVD.

I thought the first two were terrific. The logic of the first one confused me a bit but it was still enjoyable. The second one was even better, and Zapp Brannigan is always welcome in this show.


Here's to another 10 seasons!

I've watched the first one again. The logic makes more sense the second time around.

Like every show, it has its own standards of what can and cannot occur within the context of the series.

If Sam and I were referring to the same thing, just being able to follow what actually happened with Fry and Leela as explained at the end. It was a little hard to follow the first time though because it's conveyed so quickly.

Exactly. I was also trying to say that the flashbacks and "present" got a bit jumbled for me. Maybe they should use the "flashback music cue" from Lost. /img/vbsmilies/htf/smiley_wink.gif

The EyePhone episode's timing couldn't have been any better! And it was surprisingly accurate! /img/vbsmilies/htf/laugh.gif
