Why is Leela single? Unless something happens in the episode, continuity screw up considering she and Fry have been going together all season.

I always thought it was an official unofficial relationship type thing going on

Definitely the weakest episode of the season, especially after the greatness that was last week.

I just realized it was only in reference to dancing and getting drunk...Fry was dancing with Bender.

I thought it was great myself but I have no idea why everybody wasn't freaked out by Nibbler talking.

Yep, in Bender's Big Score: Nibbler starts talking to warn everyone but he does not do the memory wipe. Then during Bender's Game, Nibbler is shocked that Fry is not shocked. Fry responds that Nibbler forgot to wipe their memories.

I did like that every character in this episode changed their Rs to Ws after being taken over by cats.

Oh, and Bender's "Why am I filled with sand...and tootsie rolls" line was great.

I think you have to be a cat owner - or live around cats - to get some of the humor. Since my wife brought cats into our home, I got a bunch of it. We both loved the "his anus looks like an asterisk!" line, which reminded us of one of her more dotty relatives (no joke). I think the show is getting better each episode, but I miss the math jokes, which have been few so far.

I liked it--I enjoyed it more than the Bender episode a couple of weeks back.

"Imagine, if you will...."

Are there 'legit' online episodes anywhere? I don't have cable (and don't miss it). But I'm curious about these new Futuramas. Comedy Central's website seems to just have 2min clips.

I liked seeing Nibbler as more of a staff member/less of a pet. I hope that sticks, but I have my doubts since I don't think Frank Welker is a regular cast member.

Nope
Your just going to have to wait until the DVD's come out. The show is produced by FOX, but Comedy Central owns the rights to it now. It will not appear on a legit site like Hulu since Comedy Central terminated their relationship with them almost 1 year ago. Since they paid to get the rights from FOX, of course they aren't going to post the episodes on their website. They want you to watch Comedy Central. The only exceptions are the shows they produce in-house like Colbert, Daily Show and South Park.

I liked it. I enjoy the Amy-centric episodes. The best line was "Amy, technology isn't intrinsically good or bad. It's how it's used. Like the death ray!"

I like cats as well, but it sucks that they're always depicted as the villains. The joke about using the longer days and nights to sleep was spot on.

Netflix has all the early seasons and movies available on their Watch Instantly service. You have to be on at least their $8.99/month rental plan to use the service, but you can start watching online as soon as you sign up. I think they still offer a free 2 week trial.

Edit: No new episodes yet though. I'm guessing CC makes too much from reruns to post them online right away.

Just google them. There are sites that stream all the new episodes in flash format. I don't see how it's illegal to watch what's out there. You're not actually downloading them for distribution.
