Good News, Everyone! .....

From George at Sleepless in Midland comes this alert that new episodes of Futurama are on their way to the small screen via broadcast and at least one direct-to-DVD movie.


George offers a couple of nomination for 'Best Lines to Date' ..... here's mine (from Season 3, "Insane in the Mainframe") .....
Leela: "That's it, I'm going to show Fry he's human, the way only a woman can!"
Professor: "You're going to do his laundry?"
('smack' SFX as Amy slaps the Professor)

And here's my own query ..... my ten favorite episodes. What are yours?
"Space Pilot 3000"
"Hell is Other Robots"
"Xmas Story"
"The Deep South"
"Parasites Lost"
"Amazon Women in the Mood"
"The Luck of the Fryrish"
"Insane in the Mainframe"
"A Tale of Two Santas"

"Roswell That Ends Well"
"The Sting"
"The Farnsworth Parabox"
(Okay, so it turned out to be thirteen ..... bite my shiny metal ass!)

By the way, here's a great link for all things Futurama

George, and I loved yours ..... thanks for the heads-up on this ..... I had no idea it was in the works ..... and I've always considered myself a MAJOR fan.

I had to chuckle as I read your list. That one about Roswell was one of my favorites, too. There's a terrific line from the professor in there:

Fry: But Professor, aren't you afraid you'll change the future?

Professor: This from Mr. I-had-sex-with-my-own-grandmother. Screw the future. Let's get that microwave!

George, I had forgotten about that one ... a GREAT line!

Sorry to keep peppering this post with comments, but I believe I misremembered that last quote from the professor.

I think that what he actually said was "This from Mr. I'm-my-own-grandfather."

Guess I'll need to watch it again.
