YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH!!! New Futurama on March 10th, "A Pharoah to Remember." Here's what Tv Guide.com had to say.
Sounds good. How bout you?

"Rosebud... Yes, Rosebud frozen peas. Full of country goodness and green pea-ness. ...wait, that's terrible. I quit! ...just a handful for the road. ...oh, what luck. There's a french fry stuck in my beard."

Yeah, i like how that sounds, i think it will be a very good episode.
But,... don't you think there will be more episodes like 'a ...... to remember'? (they also had ' a flight to remember' right?)
oh, well, we will all just have to wait and see.

You were right Fry.

Great, that’s an episode I particularly wanted to see because there aren’t enough episodes these days where they visit other planets and stay there throughout the duration of the episode. It sounds very promising and it’s one of the remaining Season 3 episodes that I most want to see that hasn’t aired yet along with “The Route of All Evil”. It’s about time they caught up with some of their backlog of Season 3 episodes and I’m glad they are showing this episode this year instead of me having to wait until next year to find out about the planet modelled on Egypt.

It sounds good  smile

I doubt they will have another "a ...... to remember", "A Flight to Remember" is titled after the film "A Night to Remember" which was about The Titanic disaster.

It's about time.  It sounds like it could be a really good one.  I miss the days back in Season 2 when there was a new episode almost every week...

So, if that's right, 2 new eps in a row    big grin

According to TVGuide.com, this Thursday we'll be getting "Put Your Head On My Shoulder," then "Bugaloo" on Sunday, but next Sunday they have "The Problem With Popplers" scheduled.

Of course, FOX might've switched out "Popplers" in favor of "Pharoah." But this should put to rest any doubt that FOX is deliberately killing the show; they cry about a backlog of episodes, but they've scheduled two reruns over the next three weeks, and had two pointless pre-empts in the past three weeks--including tonight's "King of the Hill" pre-empt.

I know, it's such a rip-off. Of course it's easy to get angry when all we have to do is sit around and watch them kill the show. I want reasons not techno babble about ratings

Reasons?  Ok: Matt Groening owns Futurama more than the Simpsons.  They didn't want another network getting the series and kill off their shows (so they buy the show and kill it).  They don't get tons of money from merchandise like they do with the simpsons.  They don't understand the humor.  They stick it in bad timeslots because it does ok compared to most of their shows in the bad timeslots.  They blew all their money on buying the rights to various sporting events.  They waisted money on terrible movies that flopped hard this year.  Fox execs don't like Matt.  Animation is more expensive than Glutton Bowl or Cops.  They use faulty logic.  Guenter runs fox.

Mix and match... pick the ones you like.

I was all excited and now you ruined it, I guess it's not your fault though. Does anyone know 100% which episode will air?

Cool, I'm looking forward to "Where the Buggalo Roam". It's about time the followed up on the Amy/Kif thing. Gonna be neat to see.

But I was hoping for "A Leela of Her Own" for march 10th. Ah well, maybe next week.

Okay, I was thrown off by the added Thursday slot. (Sorry.) The Thursday extras would be good news--a sign that FOX wants to do away with the "backlog" they created--except for the fact, of course, it's all reruns.

Why are mutants consigned to the sewers, while FOXecutives are allowed to run around loose?   puke

At first I was a little worried that Futurama has been delayed for two weeks. I knew that "Where The Buggalo Roam" was supposed to come before 3/10.

What region shows Futurama twice a week? I thought showing extra re-runs within the week was a production no-no, as it is not syndicated.

The Simpsons has done this in the past, usually as "on a special night" type showings. They've done this for Survivor and other shows as well.

If they have this extra Thursday slot now, why oh WHY are they wasting it by showing re-runs!?

The fact that it's going up against the second-highest rated program on TV (C.S.I.) might have something to do with it. I know all of us would watch Futurama, but the Fox bigwigs won't put on new eps against that kind of competition.

Hey, I need re-runs to finish my guide pages for Season 2! Plus, I haven't seen them in 2-3 years! Re-runs are holy to me.
