    Despite what your TV Guides or Tivos say, tonights episode of Futurama is NOT a re-run. Be sure to tune in at 7:00PM.

    Wow. I can't believe I actually just watched an episode of Futurama that was just mediocre.

    I guess after this many years, it was bound to happen. [​IMG]

    Still the ending was good (closure, don't you know), and no true Futurama fan should miss it. It's not that it was bad, it just wasn't brilliant.

    Oh, I almost forgot...


    Thanks for the heads-up, Steve.

    BrianW, cannot disagree with you more. I absolutely loved tonight's episode. Definitely one of their better ones. Of course, there's been a New Futurama drought for so long, perhaps my perception of quality Groening stuff has been distorted. The best part had to be Fry's "coffee-time" effect.

    It was a bit too political for my tastes... I knew what they were saying, but it was too over-the-top to be funny. I don't think I more than chuckled.

    The politics made me go 'meh.' Hollywood in general is anti-Bush. So what? I get over it with a chuckle and move on. Its still funny. [​IMG]

    The coffee counter and the coffee bullettime effect was classic...seemed like a take off of the South Park episode where they counted how many times someone said "Shit."

    Good stuff!

    Definitely a solid episode, though I sorta liked the two prior "new" ones (The Sting & The Farnsworth Parabox) a bit more.

    Good gravy do I love this show. Fox still has five unaired episodes to go through.

    Season 2 DVD = Aug. 12th = Me = [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Something is really bothering me about this thread, so I'll just come out and say it:

    Why wasn't it titled "Good news, everyone! (Futurama)"? Now we'll have to reserve that title for the next boxed set.

    For my fellow Futurama Freakz:



    This info comes from the very reliable www.gotfuturama.com by way of the also reliable www.thefutoncritic.com

    --I'm sad to see the show go, but it's quite simply too good for the Fox network. Bring on the remaining R1 sets already!
