The two new episodes were a bit flat in parts but I still think they were good overall. I'd rather watch average futurama than most of what else is on TV right now.

Yeah that was a great episode- funny, but also dark and sad. Those kind of episodes are their best. I think Jurassic Bark and 7 Leaf Clover would fall in this category as well. For a comedy show, some of the endings are very poignant. That makes it problematic to compare it to something like Simpsons, which has a sarcastic outlook on the world, but isn't nearly as dark.
