    The end of Jurassic Bark made me more [​IMG] than any other cartoon ever.

    Very good episode.

    Did, and very much enjoyed it. I'm glad to have it back.

    Oh, Hai!


    Anybody watch last night's ep?


    Honestly, was not that impressed with the two season premier episodes. The plots were both interesting, but execution fell way short. Maybe it will take a re-watch to grasp them.

    Some of the jokes were hilarious.

    I like the new episodes simply by virtue of being more Futurama. It's hard for me to compare to any older episodes since it's at a consistent high as a series minus a few eps at the beginning of season 6 (like the puking goat and the eyePhone. FFS this isn't South Park or Family Guy). This season the time travel episode was incredible I thought. As long as the occasional really good episode comes around and the rest are watchable then I'm happy. I just love the series too much.

    I thought the gender episode started out okay but became way too wacky towards the end. I much preferred the Bender episode. Enjoyed Zapp's appearance in both!

    First two episodes sucked. The gender bender ep was an attempt to spoof older sci-fi story lines, most notably several from Star Trek.

    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.

    This season the time travel episode was incredible I thought.

    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.

    Futurama > Simpsons
    FU. The Simpsons is easily an A+, and one of the greatest shows ever made. Futurama is an A-, and not a great one either. The best quote is from 'Obsoletely Fabulous,' imo. When that old robot says, 'what?!,' then re-inserts the tape and goes, 'what?!'. The new episodes did not suck; which is nice!

    This one and Jurrasic Bark are probably my top 2.

    This was a brilliant ep. I'm also very pleased that both this season and season 7 will contain 26 episodes. As always though: there will be ups and downs quality-wise (subjective, of course).

    Big Futurama fan. First post ITT but I'll be back watching the new ep tomorrow evening (downloading after work). [​IMG]

    The latest ep is hilarious. So many great lines.
