New Futurama 6/15

Man, I thought this one was pretty funny overall.

Don't think I've ever seen Hermes' son before -- a chip off the old block.

They did a great job tying the whole thing together.

Hermes' son has been in a few episodes (most prominently in the one where he and the Farnsworth clone started up a competing delivery business to Planet Express).

I thought it was pretty funny.

I liked it a lot. the whale puking was great stuff.

Then the mecca of fry's 100th coffee was comedy gold. His world moved so fast that normal life was slow enough so he could save everyone. Funny stuff.

Does anyone know if these "new" episodes will eventually end up on Cartoon Network?

Yeah, they will. Fox first needs to AIR the episodes in order to allow them to be syndicated. So you will eventually see them on cartoon network.

Who knows if they will actually be put back in the order they were suppose to go in original. A lot of this season is just side ones from other seasons.

One of the least used phrases in the English language.

I love how they made the whale have pink eyes when barfing. It's this attention to small details that make this a great show.

I never knew that whale vomit could be useful.

Pretty good episode, the end was great. I apperciate Futurama more after listening to the audio commentary for the first season. I can't wait for the next set to come out.

Great episode.

Fry doing his "Flash" impression was classic.

Didn't care too much for this episode although the whale puking was pretty funny.

Good episode. They need to have Hermes' son in it more often.

I agree.. It was a pretty good episode... but I think I enjoyed last weeks better.

Though Fry saving everyone from the burning building =

Very interesting....but the important question is, "Is ambergris obtained through whale puke?"

Perhaps it is obtained from whale puke because of the food that whales eat. You know, certain plants?
