I'm still confused on the numbering, as TV.com has this listed as Season 7, but Wikipedia (and CRZ) have this as Season 6. Well, tiebreaker goes to the Admin, so Season 6, it is.
First episode was a perfectly logical segue from the last DVD into the new season. It felt like it went really fast, though. The episode was ok, but it's not like they could blow their entire wad on the first episode. Perfectly acceptable.
The second episode felt like it was going fast, too, but MAN everything from the last commercial break on was total gold. Even after all these years, Zapp Brannigan still rules the universe. The ending was just awesome and gives Zapp some brand new fuel for his lust.
I really missed this show. Glad to have it back the way it was meant to be.
Perhaps it was the Noid who should have avoided me.
I think that there was at least one instance of butchering in every episode that Fox aired since the Olympics marathons. And it wasn't just the "shock value" stuff they were cutting either (like Quagmire "looking for his keys").
