Kif's and Zoidberg's "skeletons" are great. :)

"I don't have bones. I'm supported by a system of fluid-filled bladders."

That birthing device is so not drawn by Matt. His "sketches" always look like he was holding the pencil with his nose.

And apparently an upcoming episode is entitled "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences." Yay!

That Bender statue is awesome!

I still want an empty Bender Head case for my DVDs that I already have.

They should really lose that one way too Simpsony looking woman from their background character pack. She always stands out like a sore thumb to me.

I didn't think that Birthing thing looked bad at all...

...which proves that Matt didn't draw it.

Well, the site info was slightly off. It definitely looked like the final prop design sheet instead of a sketch, so it's the refined version of whatever Groening initially drew.

I got the joke without doing the math.  Or having any math skills.  Yey references!

Does this mean Bender's gonna get hooked on shock again?

I don't get it at all.

I think it's meant to add up to 54.  Hence, Studio 54.

Huh? It's 1, 2 and 27. Oh, I guess if you multiply them. I kept thinking the 33 was 9. I'm an engimaneer!

it's called prime factorization. you break a number down into multiples of prime numbers.
dF = 0
d*F = J

In preparation for the new episodes I will be re-watching the whole series. If you alternate between watching 2 and 3 episodes a day, then one movie per day, you will finish Wild Green Yonder on the 24th.
Today's episodes : Space Pilot 3000, Episode 2: The Series Has Landed, and I, Roommate.

It always amazes me how strong this show started.

Now that I have actually read the book "Ender's Game" (something I had never done but should have a long time ago), I need to go back and rewatch Bender's Game to see if it sucks less, since I now realize that it was an obvious homage. :)

Can't wait 'till the 24th for new episodes!

I haven't read the book in a long time, but I don't think anything in Bender's Game was an homage to Ender's Game other than the title.
