Re: Futurama Season 7 Discussion Thread

You stated my thoughts a lot more elegantly than I could have achieved. Touching character development moments for Frye but Mom was definitely miscast.

BTW, how many episodes remain?

I liked the irony of the "Adventure Time" cameo since John Dimaggio voices both Bender and Jake. (That's one bizarre "acid trip" of a series from the couple of episodes I've seen.)

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Futurama Season 7 Discussion Thread

^^ Adventure Time is really good. I wish I got to watch it more often. Phineas and Ferb is still the best of the current crop, though.

I saw Futurama this week (I put a sticky note on my TV). The beanstalk episode was great. I love a show with a message and this was perfect: "I don't care if it feeds the hungry and cures disease-- it's still wrong!"

Mom did seem pretty off, however, no doubt about that.

I bet they thought they were being really clever making a timely parody of a forthcoming mega blockbuster "Jack the Giant Slayer"...

Re: Futurama Season 7 Discussion Thread

I thought this one was pretty good. Not one of their best, but I've seen worse. I do agree that Mom was out of character though. If the rest of the episodes match the quality of the last few, I think the series will be going out on a high note.

That was pretty good. Not great, but pretty good.

The scene with Finn and Jake was awesome. My ten year old son made me rewind that several times.

I loved the Finn and Jake scene, but I also loved the Burt Ward and Adam West scene!

^Yeah, even the music resembled Nelson Riddle's "Bat-climb" motif.

Re: Futurama Season 7 Discussion Thread

Beautiful. That was Futurama at its best. Good to see one more episode like this before the final hoorah.

Re: Futurama Season 7 Discussion Thread

Yup, they did it to me again. I felt the explanation for the CE3K ship and the "tones" was pretty lame, but Fry reconnecting with his past was a good story to tell, and that final scene had me in tears. It's good to see Fry's mom finally developed beyond the one joke (obsessive football fan), while still keeping that joke as part of her character.

Re: Futurama Season 7 Discussion Thread

But couldn't Fry just have done the whole dream thing again AFTER saving the world and thus talk to his mo-- *SMACK*

Still, a touching episode. The whole thing was about closure and his inabilty to deal with losing his family over the years. He SORTA dealt with Yancy and had a tear-jerker of an episode with his dog, but his parents had been mostly caricatures whom we thought he'd never miss. Good one.

Re: Futurama Season 7 Discussion Thread

I only caught the last ten minutes or so, so I didn't get the full effect, but it looked pretty nice. These types of episodes are what make Futurama a real classic.
