A quick reminder that Season 6 of Futurama starts TONIGHT (Thursday) on Comedy Central at 10PM (9 Central) with a special HOUR long season premiere! To tide you over until then, here's Zapp Brannigan to bring you up to speed on The Story So Far:

"Yes, it's sort of a comedy central now. And we're on it!"

...

"I get it!"

I missed this show so, so much.

Wow, I really don't watch much TV these days so I had no idea this was happening.

There's a great interview with David X. Cohen at The Onion A/V Club:

http://www.avclub.com/articles/david-x-cohen,42482/

Some minimal spoilers. (There will be more nudity on the show.)

If you've ever listened to the Futurama DVD commentaries, David Cohen is a very bright fellow and he's run a good ship on Futurama the last 12 years against some daunting challenges. I don't think he'll ever get the credit he deserves - and I mean the Trey Parker/Matt Stone, Seth McFarlane level of credit - but I really believe Cohen is right up there with those guys as one of television's all-time great writer-executive producer-showrunners.

Lemme see if I've got this straight:
First there is the 2-hour "straight to DVD" movie titled "Into the Wild Green Yonder". That's showing up as 4 half-hour chunks, called episodes 801-804. Has that ever been broadcast on TV before?

Then, immediately after that, are the 2 half-hour, new episodes, numbered 601 & 602, which have never been disseminated on any media.

Have I got that right?

Nope. The four straight-to-DVD movies (of which "Into the Wild Green Yonder" is the fourth and final) make up a 16 episode "season 5" (which is technically season 6 because FOX spread out 4 seasons' worth of episodes over five broadcast years, but there has been some retroactive regrouping to knock it back down to 4 seasons of FOX + 1 season of movies).

Here, just go look at Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org). ;-)

I wondered why there wasn't a thread discussing the new episodes - they haven't been screened in the US yet.

I watched them Tuesday night and thought

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
the first reset episode was OK for what it was, 2nd was quite good. And yeah - noted the increase in nudity


Above - not an actual spoiler, just my opinion on the overall show without any specifics.
