We've been really happy with the new eps so far. It's like the old show is back!

We were worried after those crappy movies (the first one was ok, but the last three were pretty bad, IOHO).

The last one grew on me after watching it a couple more times, especially after the commentary.  The middle two(2) still are kind of dull... the tentacle one being the weakest IMO, simply because they tried to fit an episode's (maybe two) worth of plot into a movie length.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

I like the 4th one best.
Same here. For me it's 4>1>2>3.

I like the unreleased fifth movie best.  For me it's 5-1-4-3-2

A little nit-pick about the first new episode (do we still need spoilers?)

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Do you know the great thing about nerds... they try hard to explain stuff away so the creators don't have to.  Like so:

Just watched the Duh Vinci episode, 3 times, I guess I liked it.  3rd one was mostly to  freeze frame a lot, massive amounts of detail in some of the scenes, must have drove the animators crazy...

I really enjoyed that episode.  I've said "Not even a card." nonstop since watching it.

Favorite since the series relaunched. The plot was fun, the jokes kept me laughing, and I like that they stuck with Fry's belief that you use nails to hammer in nails.

Wait, you're saying that isn't true?  Well that explains a lot.

There was a lot to like in this one, from the Millionaire parody to the ongoing satire of the Dan Brown nonsense. 

I do wonder what the Professor and Fry did in that spaceship alone for a month, though.

Really, have to wonder how they ate and breathed, and other science facts.... ;D

Well, maybe I should just relax.  They probably worked on a lot of crossword puzzles.

It's a sad state of affairs on the internet that this is probably one of the few active forums left that would get those jokes... but the fact that the jokes are made and understood here makes me love these forums all the more. ;)

This was a really funny episode. Definitely the best one so far this season. Love the twists that he was actually the dumbest person on his planet, and what his masterpiece invention was actually for. Classic.

Awesome episode tonight with a sweet ending. I don't know if history will place this one beside Jurassic Bark, Leela's Homeworld, or Luck of the Fryrish, but it was a nifty episode none-the-less. Nice to see Hermes get a little character development too.
