This last one was pretty good, lots of good laughs.

Rewatching previous ones I liked the first more for some reason.  The second was pretty good before but I think knowing the gag actually makes the first half of the episode more funny.  The rest still pretty flat for me.  So 3 out of 9 so far, that's probably about average.

Have to avoid expecting too much from the last few...

It sucks it's being cancelled (again!). The Simpsons should have been cancelled in 2000. It's terrible now. Matt Groening should have put his efforts into Futurama instead. It's like Family Guy vs American Dad. Family Guy started great. I used to love it. Now I can't even watch it anymore. It went from "edgy" to cruel and uninspired. American Dad, however, is a much superior show with a lot more heart. Not to mention that it has one of the best animated characters of all time in Roger. Unfortunately, Family Guy and The Simpsons are the ones that bring in all the ratings.  >:(

Just came across a box in my garage with a set of the old action figures from Futurama (and the live action show of The Tick). Forgot about the Futurama ones! I think my wife bought them.  :highfive:

Now if only I can find my old series 1 TMNT ones that are still in the packages from when I was a kid... I know they're at my parents house somewhere...

Just think: the guy who created The Tick wrote the Firefly episodes Jaynestown and Trash.

My friend across the street when I was growing up had the ENTIRE tmnt action set. Technodrome, Turtle Van, every weird character they ever made a figure of... I am still jealous and may try to buy some someday just to make up for it all.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

 Don't want to spoil it for anyone that hasn't seen the latest episode so:

 That "thing" in the locker room with Bender had me on the floor, man that was funny.

 Overall it was a funny episode.

 Only one more to go......

It's RANDY!!!

I love how a random one-off character who only had a name behind-the-scenes ended up becoming a well used character. Randy is the favourite of pretty much all the cast and crew.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

I think they're going to stand by that one. It felt like the writers were sending Zoidberg out with the kind of happy ending they weren't going to have time for in the finale.

I loved it. It was great to end on a story that was somehow both large scale, and also small and intimate.

I will absolutely be thrilled if the show gets picked up somewhere else (or maybe gets turned into a real movie), but if this really IS the end...it's been a hell of a run, and I am grateful for all of it.

Beautiful and perfect way to end the series, while still leaving a door open for a future, should it ever re-re-resurect. If this is it, I feel closure. If it's not, I'll look forward to more.
