Verrone Network: Comedy Central, Wednesday nights Airdate: June 27, 2012 It was a smart move by the FUTURAMA writers to use this year’s election to do their own sci-fi take on campaigning and how society views on voting for a President just never change. And “Decision 3012” is a smart piece of political satire, even if it isn’t the type of laugh-out-loud funny we come to expect from the show. The concept is simple. The […]Read On »

FUTURAMA has been very good this year – particularly last week’s “Law & Oracle” episode, but this week, the show sunk to a surprising low. “Silence of the Clamps” is a complete mess, repeating many themes and story strands from the earlier part of the season and barely providing any actual jokes in the process.

Stewart Burns Director:  Edmund Fong Network: Comedy Central, airs Thursdays Original Telecast:  June 23, 2011 After the gender-bending episode of Season 6A “The Prisoner of Benda” which allowed the Planet Express crew of FUTURAMA to switch brains, the Season 6B premiere of the Comedy Central series takes things one step further with gender re-assignment for the entire cast of characters. “Neutopia” begins with Planet Express broke and no money to keep their operation going.
