Futurama Thread

This year, on the 10th of June, the first episode of Futurama season 6 will go to air :)! This will be the first official Futurama episode (excluding the feature length films) since 2003; 7 years (for those who can't count)! It's fittingly called "Rebirth", and will be the first of the 13 episodes in season 6, and then a season 7 is also planned - we'll be having a total 26 new episodes! The whole original voice-acting cast is back and Matt Groening and David X. Cohen are still heading the team and writing episodes!

Now, I've known about this for quite a while now - as I'm sure most of you have as well - but actually getting an official release date and episode title just makes it seem that much more real and make me, personally, that much more excited. So how about you? Are you excited about the television return of Futurama? Or are you worried that it may be a failure and forever tarnish your opinion of Futurama? Will the episodes live up to the old ones? And how did you think the feature length films fared against the classic episodes?

Opinions and speculation please.

  • I followed the series and saw every episode up to the first one after the movies...and then I haven't managed to catch a single episode since. It hurts and I feel I only have myself to blame.
  • Well it's been a while since Futurama made it's comeback after the 4 movies and It's now on it's second season after it's comeback. Anyway you can talk about anything Futurama in this thread (Also since this is a Futurama thread expect a few Simpsons references from Coolsome)

    Anyway my question is what is your favorite Futurama movie?

    There's already a Futurama thread.

    But, to answer your question, my favorite movie is Bender's Big Score. I liked the other ones, but BBS seemed to connect the subplots to the main movie the best out of them (they also seemed to split up into separate episodes the best when watched on Comedy Central).
  • Either Bender's Big Score or Green Yonder, but because I like seeing Leela and Fry.
  • I'm the guy who voted Yonder. Just tossing that out there.
  • I've added my vote to yonder as well. Doesn't help that I like to Go Green.
  • I voted for Beast with a billion backs. I like the story in it and the Bender Subplot was so funny :D.

    Bender's Big Score is a close second then Into the wild green yonder and then Bender's Game

    I liked that movie but I didn't like the fact that the Bender subplot with the Earth's robots just ended up being unresolved at the end and it wasn't followed up on as everything just ended up back to the status quo in the next movie.
  • ...but it did have David Cross.
