It seems as though my play on words was recognized and brought about a debate. Excellent...all goeth according to plan...

I kid, I kid. As an agnostic I'm very interested in seeing where this episode will go. I'm really hoping that the writers don't take a very defined stand on either side of the evolution debate, actually. Even though it's the theory I believe is correct, it's always a lot more fun to see points for and against it. In fact, I would love to see some gags that make fun of it just as much as the religious side to the debate, so long as they're clever and make me laugh.

My new sickening list:

1 - The Late Philip J. Fry (seems to be turning into an early-2000s Michael Schumacher - ending up 1st all the time so much so that it would be more interesting if he wasn't mentioned at all)
2 - Lethal Inspection
3 - Proposition Infinity
4 - First 2/3s of The Duh Vinci Code
5 - A Clockwork Origin
6 - That Darn Katz!
7 - Attack of the Killer App
8 - Rebirth

Long time lurker, first time poster.

Just have to comment on how good the scores have been lately. That's Christopher Tyng's work, right? Even though they apparently lack a live orchestra now, Futurama has been sounding better than ever.

I especially love the scores in moments like:

-Leela and Lars date in BBS - I seriously want this .mp3
-Fry and Farnsworth's one-month trip to Da Vinci's world
-The last 7 minutes of The Late Philip J Fry - especially this. The soundtrack for this episode is simply amazing. I can watch the last moments of this episode with my eyes closed (not that I wouldn't want to keep them open), and just enjoy the music. I don't know if the episode would have that emotional power nor that magic wonder without that score. The suspended strings right when Leela's message appears and the soft voices when the world starts ending hark back to The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings (my fav. episode). I am very eager to listen to future scores from Tyng, they're better than most film scores (and Usher).

Saxamaphone, I am a first-time caller...er, poster here, too.

I really like your post. I also find scores to be as interesting, if not more interesting, than the visual action or spoken dialogue of movies and TV shows. I'll have to re-watch those parts you mention. Re: that month-long trip to the Da Vinci's world, I think I was so entranced with the lyrical fluidity of the animation (and I'm always a sucker for beautiful space vistas), that I didn't even notice the music.

I have to say, though, that if one notices the score RIGHT away, then that composer did a terrible job. e.g., the music for Clint Eastwood's "Mystic River" was just so discordant on my ears, it really ruined the movie for me. So I was chagrined when it was nominated for an Academy Award (though I really am a fan of Mr. Eastwood's directorial work).

Bender's Big Score, The Beast with a Billion Backs and The Late Philip J. Fry all had wonderful music.

Rebirth and Attack of the Killer App had pretty horrible music though...

Benda was far funnier than Late, so that's why it gets the nod. I appreciated the epic sci-fi-ness of Late, but it needed the funny.

Ah, thank you. But surely a category that reminds one of DaveMason has to have some quality to it, right?
