The Planet Express gang goes retro in FUTURAMA - Season 6B - "Reincarnation" | Futurama TM and ©2011 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. All Rights Reserved

Stars (voices): Billy West, Katey Sagal, John Di Maggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche Writer: Aaron Ehasz Director: Peter Avanzino Network: Comedy Central, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: September 8, 2011 When FUTURAMA decides to do one of its three-segment special episodes, it’s always worth looking forward to and the Season 6B finale “Reincarnation” is one of its best yet. Taking three totally different animated styles, FUTURAMA re-invents itself in tone and storytelling with each segment progressively getting weirder and weirder. It’s a geek haven with the first segment kicking things off in black in white in that old Max Fleischer […]Read On »

TV Review: FUTURAMA – Season 6B – “The Tip of the Zoidberg”

Dr. Zoidberg and the Professor in FUTURAMA - Season 6B - "Tip of the Zoidberg" | Futurama TM and ©2011 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. All Rights Reserved

Stars (voices): Billy West, Katey Sagal, John Di Maggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche Network: Comedy Central, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 18, 2011 Original, funny, and interesting, it seems like the writers heard our cry that we were fed up with the bland FUTURAMA versions of old classics.  This week, in “The Tip of the Zoidberg” they actually made up a storyline from scratch.  It’s also a great back story that explains a good deal, and does so with some hilarious lines. The show starts off with Dr. Zoidberg (voiced by Billy West) treating the crew of the Planet […]Read On »

Stars (voices): Billy West, Katey Sagal, John Di Maggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche Network: Comedy Central, airs Thursdays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: August 11, 2011 This was inevitable – Fry and the gang finally take a page from the script of the great, Scooby-Doo.  In “Fry Am the Egg Man,” the FUTURAMA crew make a mildly funny attempt at pulling on our pet heartstrings in homage to the Great Dane with a hint of Old Yeller in there. We start off with Leela (voiced by Katey Sagal), Fry (voiced by Billy West) and Bender (voiced by John DiMaggio) taking […]Read On »

Stars (voices): Billy West, Katey Sagal, John Di Maggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche Writer: Josh Weinstein  Director: Stephen Sandova Network: Comedy Central, airs Thursdays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: August 4, 2011 In “Mobius Dick,” the FUTURAMA gang blandly pays homage to the big three of seafaring classics as the crew goes on a mission that incorporates JAWS, MOBY DICK, the biblical Jonah story and a bit of inter-dimensional rocketeering. Our story starts out as Farnsworth (voiced by Billy West) intends to have the family of his first crew at a memorial service to commemorate their first mission in which they […]Read On »

TV Review: FUTURAMA – Season 6B – “All the Presidents’ Heads”

Futurama - Season 6B - "All the President's Heads"| Futurama TM and ©2011 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. All Rights Reserved

Stars (voices): Billy West, Katey Sagal, John Di Maggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche Writer:Josh Weinstein Director: Stephen Sandova Network: Comedy Central, airs Thursdays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: July 21, 2011 Nice Comeback. The latest episode of FUTURAMA, “All the Presidents’ Heads”, is a much needed return to what kept the show a comedic institution for all these years. This one hits the spot with a basic time travel premise, bringing back the intelligent referential humor and a nice pace with a three part storyline. We start out tonight with Fry (voiced by Billy West) going to his night job […]Read On »

Stars (voices): Billy West, Katey Sagal, John Di Maggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche Writer: Eric Rogers Director: Frank Marino Network: Comedy Central, airs Thursdays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: July 21, 2011 FUTURAMA had a shot at bringing the funny back this week and just didn’t pull the trigger as this week’s episode, “Yo Leela Leela,” featured an easy target but went the PC route instead. The episode concerns Leela (voiced by Katey Sagal) visiting the Cookieville Orphanarium where she was raised. The orphans want a better story told to them than Leela’s life, so she goes off and writes […]Read On »

TV Review: FUTURAMA – Season 6B – “Silence of the Clamps”

FUTURAMA - Season 6B - "Silence of the Clamps" | Futurama TM and ©2011 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. All Rights Reserved

Voices: Billy West, Katey Sagal, John Di Maggio, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche Writer: Eric Rogers Director: Frank Marino Network: Comedy Central, airs Thursdays Original Telecast: July 14, 2011 Now that was pretty bad. 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. When Planet Express has to deliver a package (robot clamps) to a […]Read On »
