Yeah, the romantic tension in the Simpsons really broke down once Marge and Homer hooked up.

I'd execute anyone who had a hand in any post Season 8 "Marge and Homer's Relationship is Strained and Close to Divorce" episode without breaking a sweat.

The Mysterious Voyage of Homer tied that story up forever, and included Johnny Cash and insanity peppers in the deal.

...I'd say it flowed pretty naturally from Devil's Hands and Big Score.

So how many relationships have you been in where it went straight from "There's no chance of a relationship" to suddenly "Omg, we're basically dating now."

That's not what happened at all.

The relationship has been a tug-of-war, with Leela trying to reconcile the fact that Fry's a good guy with the fact that he's dumb and immature.  It's a heart-versus-head dilemma, exemplified here by [spoiler]her repeated asking for an explanation for what he's up to and why she should trust him[/spoiler] and ultimately resolved when [spoiler]she realizes she doesn't need an explanation, she knows him well enough that she can trust him implicitly[/spoiler].

So perhaps the question should instead be "How many relationships have you been in where you wondered intellectually if it was a good idea or not but then finally decided to take a chance?"

In which case my answer is "All of them."

re: show continuing

the simpsons.

that is all.

1. I found last night's perfectly watchable.
2. As Constantine points out, it's not an apples-to-apples comparison.  Besides the relationship issue, there's the question of continuing creator involvement -- Groening is essentially a rubber stamp on Simpsons at this point, and David S Cohen, who wrote a number of the best episodes, left to go do some other thing.  My feeling is that as long as Groening and Cohen have direct involvement with Futurama, we're going to get quality work, though I don't dispute that diminishing returns ARE inevitable at some point.

Okay, Thad, I'll just tell you you're right.

Yeah, I can pretend to be diplomatic while getting one final jab in, too.

I did not like it. Much like Bender's Game, it reeked of trying too hard to be funny, and falling just a bit too short. I certainly hope the series is over, now, before it sinks any lower. The only movie I actually enjoyed of the four was Beast with a Billion Backs.

I really can't honestly say that I liked the movies.  I liked a LOT of the jokes in the movies, but the movies themselves were irritating.  I really just wish they made a new season instead.

Just watched it, having managed to miss its release completely. :whoops:
Enjoyed the hell out of it.  I don't know if it beats out BBS for my personal favorite, 'cause stable time loops get me all hot and bothered.

Droppin' out of stealth mode because I hadn't seen the news reported anywhere else, but Comedy Central orders 26 new episodes of Futurama.

Absolutely zero. That's why I watch movies/cartoons/whatever. I like to believe that the girls I'm into and not yet into if-you-know-what-I-mean haven't already decided we're never going to hook up.

I hate it when I don't know whether Kazz is being sarcastic or not and i want to agree with him, but I do not want to be ridiculed.

Great! So instead of just canceling Futurama, they've now dredged up its body and reanimated it as some sort of shambling horror. Fantastic.
