    Did anyone watch this episode?
    The opening tagline - "Hey Tivo, suggest THIS!"
    And the videogame segment [​IMG] How did they get away with that stuff? Nintendoo 64? Donkey Kong? Pacman? I seem to remember some law allowing use of trademarks and copyrights for parody, must have been that.
    Liked the Wizard of Oz bit at the end too.
    Great, great show.

    I missed the beginning and turned it on when during "Space Invaders" scene:watching the Invaders close in row by row- which made me pissed I missed the beginning.

    Very funny.

    Best. Futurama. Ever. (Said the like the Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons).
    The Bender story was not the greatest but the other two ruled. Especially the video game segment. [​IMG]

    It started up halfway through the Pac-Man segment here in Boston... ::sigh:: What I saw, I found incredibly funny.

    The obnoxious thing is, the game ended pretty close to on time, but for some reason Fox ran ten or fifteen minutes of post-game. Makes me wish that they'd just not show "Futurama" until football season is over.

    My favorite part was the "Space Invaders" part. Something like "..the order is drop down, reverse direction, increase speed!" [​IMG]

    The whole episode was great! As for the section about Bender beoming human, it was great the way he still made a "whoohoo" sound after he died by having gasses escape the folds of flab.


    Funny stuff...bring on the season by season DVDs!!!

    My favorite bit was when Fry was preparing to take on the "invaders ... possibly from space":

    Oh boy, I happened to catch this episode half-way through on a Fox satellite feed. When I saw the video game stuff, I was laughing so hard, it hurt. Normally, I wouldn't be home when Futurama is on, but I made sure to tape this one!

    I loved when Q-Bert came out of the alien ship!

    Made me sigh and exclaim, so this is where the Simpsons genius went to.

    All I have to say is "Woooooo".

    My kids were on the floor in tears when he did that. And when they rolled him off the stage.

    That was the funniest episode so far. They even had the "Beserker"? guy in the video game act.

    Second funniest I think was the Schnoo Schnoo episode.

    This episode WAS good. I usually don't watch this show, but it was HILARIOUS.

    Wakka Wakka Wakka. Haha my roomate was laughing so hard when Ms. Pac-Man came out. I still love that no slugs or tokens, we want quarters!!! Hehe, I think the only good part of the recent Simpsons was when the pack of dogs was huddled and talking and then slowly moved away. But this entire Futurama episode was hysterical.

    Did you catch that the one guy out of the invaders ship said, "All your base are belong to us!"

    My favorite part though:

    "We resemble, but are legally distinct, from the lollipop guild." I laughed so hard I almost threw up.
