"I need my sleep, I have to get up five times a night to play Xbox."

I did not know this was a problem that afflicted all men; I thought it was just me. Once again, Futurama has brought me peace of mind.

Maybe this was discussed earlier in the topic, but I only just started reading it.

Does it bug anyone else that they seem to have given up all pretense that this is 1000 years in the future and now just throw out modern references willy nilly? Things that these characters couldn't possibly know about, like XBox, The Office.. um others that I can't remember but I'm sure were there.Yes the old series had modern references, but they usually devised some excuse for how it was possible. Now they don't seem to bother.

And yes, I'm only just now getting back into Futurama after it was dropped from Adult Swim.

That being said, I quite liked the gender episode. The bender episode, was okay. Wait gender.. bender.. I just got that! Assuming that was intentional.

Yeah, I noticed that too...  A LOT of current cultural references.  Doesn't really bother me all too much though, but I prefer it when it's more of a future twist on current things really.

Except when Fry blurts out "Like the Kardashians!" that was just lazy. Unless the Kardashians become Galactus in the next one thousand years, which is what I'm going to assume.

The more blatant pop culture references are a bit annoying, but I was so excited they managed to sneak in a Newhart "Larry, Brother Darryl, Other Brother Darryl" reference.

I enjoyed the Dig Dug reference at the end of the second episode.

But that felt a little more organic.  The others seemed a bit odd since they are usually very consistant in immersing the viewer in the future culture.  The strongest stuff in the gender episode was the Rock Creature.  That was a great character.  Both episodes were strong, but also didn't feel nearly the series best.  It was nice that Patton Oswalt was in the second episode and he did a great read on the lines, but I feel that the lines he had were just OK.  I think that his character was well realized but it didn't blow me away.  Looking forward to the rest of the season though,

Liked both episodes, 2nd was far better though.

Hope we get something as good as "The Late Phillip J. Fry" for this half of the season.

Nice to see the robot devil again, but 2 Bender centered episodes in a row?  A bit too much Bender to start off the new season.
