I approve of [spoiler]killing off everyone as often as possible[/spoiler].

I don't approve of any Futurama song since the end of season four.

Well, the last produced episode for that season was The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings, which is kind of a hard act to follow.

I'm not asking for opera, just at least give me something on the level of the bureaucracy song.

Yeeeeaaaah. That episode was terrible. Everything was pretty bland and forced.

I thought the In the Year 2525 number was pretty great.

But yeah, the holiday special was not very good.

Oh right, completely forgot about 2525.  Retracted.

This holiday special felt like a shitty what-if machine.

I DO like that they decided to forego the framing device, just because the ending of the first act came as a surprise.

The non-reaction to [spoiler]Scruffy's[/spoiler] death was the best part of that.

I bought the Blu-Ray of the new episodes a few weeks back and completely forgot to mention it!

There are some clunkers, but some of them were pretty great. The Late Philip J Fry is among the series' best episodes.

Also, the box design is SNAZZY AS FUCK.

Zoidberg is getting quite a bit of back story now. I'm pretty ok with this.

The new season is finally hitting its stride, but it bugs me to no end that Hermes is now a walking string of pot jokes.

I mean, he was already a one-note character, but now he's a low-hanging fruit one-note character.

I also like that they can handle continuity gags without breaking stride.  "Hey Lars!" and "You've really screwed the granny on this one!" are still funny even if you don't get the references.

(I WAS briefly nonplussed by the Professor's dismissal of Fry's branch of the family tree as useless and embarrassing given that Philip Fry II was the first man on Mars, but then I remembered that the Professor forgetting something isn't exactly a continuity error.)

Philip Fry II was from his brothers line wasn't it?

What weirded me out about that scene was "what's with the seventeen dung beetles?"

Why does he specifically say there are seventeen? Is it some math joke that I don't get?

It's a really obscure reference. Dung Beetle Theory
