I made a simple countdown page with instructions on which episode to watch today.  It's very simple.

Very neat, Svip--although it doesn't quite mesh with my countdown at present. Must be that pesky time-zone thing.

I watched "Space Pilot 3000" last night and was reminded of how great it is. It's one of my all-time favorites, I guess because it shows you that both the hilarity and the emotion were always there from the beginning. It's not the funniest episode (or the most emotional, for that matter), but it's a great introduction and it's so full of, like, promise and possibilities and stuff, and it just makes me happy to watch it. Like F_F1, I haven't seen an episode of this show in a few months, so watching through the series one episode at a time should be pretty interesting (you know, in a dorky way).

Currently, it is purposefully local time.  So it should 75 days left and "The Series Has Landed" if you live in Europe or North America.

It still says 76 days for me, so perhaps I don't live in North America, as I had previously thought. hmpf

Watching "the Series has landed", a thought occurs to me: How come Hermes and Zoidberg never mention the Professor's previous crew? They should've worked there at the same time as them bit never seem to talk about them.

Ah, that's the ticket. Sorry to be a pest, Svip, but you can't really expect me to count down myself...

And MightyBoosh: Interesting question; I've never really thought of that. If I had to guess, though, they probably don't talk about the old crew because they were never that close to them; in "The Sting", the doomed crew (on the black box) says something to the effect of "we're not as good as the old crew." So I'm guessing, until the current crop of characters, Farnsworth couldn't keep a crew long enough for Hermes, Amy, and Zoidberg to get too attached. And anyway, the old crew's fate just seems comically tragic (mostly just comical) until it becomes a major plot-point in "The Sting." Their gruesome demise is really just a contrivance to set Fry, Leela, and Bender up with jobs at Planet Express anyway.

As per Svip's countdown's suggestion, I just watched I, Roommate (as much as it pains me to watch just one episode of Futurama, or any TV show for that matter, at a time)

It's still April 10th here, so I just got done watching "The Series has Landed", which is another one of my favorites. I love the Bender/Amy interaction (and it kind of stinks that that dynamic wasn't explored much in the rest of the series), particularly this:

Bender: Hey, look what I won from a tourist's pocket!
Amy: Shut up. You're distracting me.
Bender: Come on, it's just like making love. Y'know: Left, down, rotate 62 degrees, engage rotor.
Amy: I know how to make love!

And that scene between Fry and Leela in the lunar lander makes the shipper in me mighty happy. It's just sweet and earnest, in a way that subsequent episodes really aren't. This episode has always given off a different vibe to me, and I can't quite explain it, but I like it.

Something tells me that there'll be quite a bit of Bender/Amy interaction in the new season if you know what I mean. Ah? Ah? Yeah, you know what I mean.

You're saying it's good that they both know how to make love, right? Continuity at its finest.

To boost my geek cred even further, I have added a new feature on the countdown page, where you can check when we are gonna get to a specific episode.  It currently understands 'season number', 'episodenumber' and 'episodetitle', e.g. 'season 3', '5' and 'the problem with popplers'.

Damn, doesn't work in Internet explorer, looks like I'm gonna have to break out the ol' FireFox.

There, now it works. Now back into your box you go, FireFox until Svip makes another page or until I need to use SWF Catcher.

Microsoft does not release a modern version of Internet Explorer for my platform, so I don't care nor do I wish to go through the entire trouble of testing my site in Internet Explorer.

I'm always up until the early hours of the morning so I watch the day's Futurama episode before I got to sleep until the afternoon.

This morning: Love's Labours Lost in Space.

Just watched "I, Roommate", which is an episode I always go into thinking I don't like, but am then always pleasantly surprised by. There's something a bit off about it--the pacing, maybe, or the sitcom-ish plot--but there are also some really funny moments. I like the housewarming scene ("That lady's got a huge ass") and Bender's blind-stinking sobriety ("I hate the people who love me and they hate me").

I'm behind by two episodes. I plan to catch up tonight. Of course, I may watch more than two and then have a few nights off during the week.

Love's Labours Lost in Space has got to be one of my favourite episodes. So many good jokes. "It was just a matter of outsmarting them" "Wow! I never would have thought of that."

I wonder if parts of Bender's Game's plot were one of those long term planned things or they just wrote the movie to fit with Love's Labor's story.

"I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it."

"...Then you'll come crawling back for another taste of sweet, sweet candy ... bam."

Still have to watch bot planet today, which TV should I watch it on? If only I had two or three minutes to think about it!

I actually think that a lot of the Vergon 6 stuff from "Bender's Game" kind of contradicts things seen in "Love's Labours Lost in Space" (and, to an extent, "The Why of Fry"). I can't think of specifics right now, but I guess my point is, I don't think it was a long-term plan so much as something they chose to work into BG because it made sense in terms of what we'd seen thus far in the series.

Oh, and I really like "Fear of a Bot Planet"--it's a funny episode--but I find myself thinking that those robots are pretty dang stupid not to realize that Fry and Leela are humans until they take their helmets off. I get that it's part of the joke, but it is a bit of a stretch.

Yeah, the pilot and Love's Labours Lost in Space were what would have drawn me in and kept me watching. They stand out a lot in my head. Today's episode is also one I remember fondly, and I don't even like anchovies.

While watching Hell is Other Robots I noticed that in the scene with with gold violin, The Robot Devil is substantially taller than Bender, Leela and Fry.

But the rest of the show it seems to vary. Then in the later episodes he was always around the same height.

'Sup with that? Doesn't seem to be mentioned on the Infosphere under "goofs".

Well, on to the final disc of Season 1.

I've been living such a wild and crazy life this weekend that I am now a couple episodes behind; I'll have to catch "A Big Piece of Garbage", "Hell is Other Robots", and "A Flight to Remember" at some point today. I've never been a huge fan of the first two episodes (I love the Robot Hell song, though), but I feel like re-watching these episodes generally makes me appreciate them more. You know, reevaluate them or whatever. For example, I used to think "I, Rommate" was mighty boring, but when I watched it last week, I really loved it. Either my tastes are evolving or I simply get more out of the episodes now than I did as a 12-year old. Perhaps I'm more enlightened (but probably not).

There's nothing much to do at work today. Wished I uploaded Futurama to my laptop. I've only watched "The Series Has Landed" just yesterday frown
