ATTN ALL: New Futurama Sunday!!

assuming Fox doesn't preempt it. It looks like the original air date was supposed to be in April but it was never aired. “The Sting” airs Sunday at 7!

Cool - I hope it is a take-off of the movie - one of my favorites.

I guess that would explain why TiVo lists it as a repeat:

Futurama
Sun 6/1 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm Rated TV-PG

"The Sting" Animated, Science Fiction, Sitcom (2003) Billy West, Katey Sagel, John DiMaggio, Lauren Tom. Fry, Leela, and Bender attempt to collect honey from space bees. (CC, Stereo, R)

My Tivo doesn't say it's a repeat. I saw this last night when I was checking my to-do list.

So these are episodes made a while back, but unaired? What season would this be then? 6 or still 5?

Officially this is still Season 4. If you go by production schedule, which is how they are releasing the DVDs, they only made 4 seasons. Its just that Fox has been stretching the last season over the last 22 months.

Just to add to that...
Apparently, for sydication purposes I guess, they're part of the FOX created season 5 which is why Cartoon Network can't show them (yet).
FWIW, to show how goofed up things are- there's a season 3 episode in season 5!

That was a pretty sentimental episode... goes well with the last episode that aired where Leela and Fry are proven to be in love.

Wasn't all out hillarious (tho swedish novelties always get a chuckle) but I thought it was pretty solid... Don't worry. Be Happy, it's only a radiator after all.

Kind of shows how Futurama is actually unique..

That was a great episode.

"Wake up, Leela!"

"Noooo!!!"



"Were you guys just singing?"

Bender: "Nope, I'm not allowed to. Court ordered..."

The episode looked sad, and reminded me of the sad Christmas dog episode. Unlike the sad dog episode, this one had a more happy ending, so I'm pleased.

I agree that it wasn't the most hilarious laugh-out loud episode, but very nice. New episodes are so rare.

I thought it was good. Loved Bender communicating with the bees.

The bit with "If you want Leela, you'll have to go through me first" made me laugh non stop for 2 minutes.

Good episode.

But then again, anytime we can get a new Futurama, it's a good episode.

My favorite line in the show--

Hermes: "Honeycomb's big! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!"
Bender: "It's not small?"
Hermes: "No! No! No!"

"Looks like Fry is walking on sunshine now"

Guess it ties into the whole Dog episode.

Enjoyed it greatly, then again like posted above, anytime there's a new futurama it's enjoyable.

not as funny as the older ones, but nice to have. I can't wait to get all the season boxsets.
