Alien references?  I can only think of two in the whole of Futurama off the top of my head:
Nannybot.  SLEEP LITTLE DUMPLING.  I HAVE REPLACED YOUR MOTHER.

And in Neutopia, Amy is piloting the same machine Ripley has in her "Get away from her you BITCH" moment.

By the way, fortified wine is wine that comes in a small castle, rather then a bottle.

I spent the last few minutes wondering if a castle was a name for a type of bottle or something.

Then I got the joke.

Now now, let's all enjoy a bowl of ice cream.  (Exactly what it sounds like.  A big bowl of ice cubes with cream poured on it.)

Is that the first confirmation we've had that Reincarnation will just air the week after Overclockwise rather than being held back till November as was originally planned or aired on the same night as Overclockwise as David X. Cohen said might happen?

I doubt it would, and I prefer Futurama to quit while its ahead with its dignity intact, something the Simpsons will never ever be able to do now.  Give me Black Books and Daria over Family Guy and The Simpsons any day of the week.

Quality not quantity.  Futurama is not Family Guy, people!  (Oh I know its fashionable to rag on Seth McFarlane, but I think American Dad is easily one of the best things on the telly.  Basicaly Family Guy is the sister that gets all the attention even though she doesn't really deserve it anymore, American Dad is the sister that gets ignored despite being the most interesting and funny, and Cleveland Show is the sister that should have been strangled at birth.)

I think Roger is probably one of the greatest new cartoon characters ever, and is easily SethMcFarlane's greatest creation.  And Francine is awesome.  She's looks and acts like a mentally unstable Princess Peach.

And back on topic.  Futurama for 2 more years!  That's the greatest news I have heard since my foster father said he was going to stop using the switch and just starve me in the basement from then on.

Me neither. I see Futurama having about 10 seasons of life in it, but if the writers could keep it going for 20 seasons at the same standard that they're at now (or better), then I'd love that. Obviously, being realistic, that won't be the case, but who knows? I can't see David X. Cohen ever giving up the showrunner gig and The Simpsons only really went down the crapper when Mike Scully took over (although it was still good TV up until Al Jean took over solo -I'd place a lot of blame on Scully for setting wheels in motion into how the show got so bad by season 13).
Frankly, if The Simpsons was still as funny as it once was, I don't think I'd mind the recycled plots, consistently wackier storylines and bad continuity. I mean, I would mind them, but I'd still be a huge fan of the show.

So yeah, I want Futurama to last as long as possible so long as I still consider the quality to be worthy of being my favourite TV show of all time -which currently, I do.

The Simpsons DVD sets 11 onwards are the worst, they have no proper holder, just cardboard with barely any room for the discs and it scratches the disc unless you're careful. I had to cut up plastic wallets and put them inside for protection, that's how shit the packaging is...

I like Family Guy, but American Dad is by far a better (consistently underrated) show and probably my second favourite animated show after Futurama.

Hear, hear!  Roger alone can carry the show on his own, and Frannie is more then the typical "Long suffering MILF married to an unattractive retard" character you see, from Wilma Flinstone to Marge Simpson.  

Also!  I really want them to explore new planets.  Most of Season 6 takes place on earth, but they have very few episodes where they go into space, or its quite brief before returning to earth.  Personally, I want season 7 to explore more of the Solar System.  We have seen a good amount of Mars and some of Neptune, and Pluto being a planet of penguins was good too.  Mercury and Europa also got featured in Put Your Head On my Shoulder (though I really think they should do an episode where they explore beneath Europa's ice shelf.)  I really would love an episode that takes place on a terraformed Venus.

Yeah, and Dr Zoidberg's race enslaved humanity, but it doesn't mean it wouldn't be a fun ep. I want to see more of Morbo's race, in fact Morbo in general has been lacking somewhat it Season 6 don't you think?...

Also, on the subject of things that sound like something they'd do in a comic; The Cure For The Common Clod/Cold Warriors. Need I say more?...

I dunno, I always liked the joke of there being an impending threat, but it never comes.  I am disappointed in the lack of references to his race, though.

That is a good point. Perhaps if they made more references to that then we could hold off it actually happening and it would continue to be funny. If that was the case though, I would like to still see more of Morbo's race and learn more about them in some other plot. We need more Morbo!...

Yeah, we don't even know the name of his species.  Hell have they even said Fawn's name out loud, or has she even spoken?  I don't want an invasion, because the impending invasion would pretty much destroy his and Linda's character (they just wouldn't be the same without him making some threat about reducing Linda's species to extinction, while she just giggles vacantly.)   I wouldn't mind some more episodes that show more of their private lives, but not too much.  (Morbo constantly threatening to destroy Fawn or Linda screaming about her children are pretty funny and clever.)   They're perfect the way they are. Still a few more hints wouldn't hurt.  (Like for all his snarling and threats, his and Linda's kids are having a playdate, or we see Morbo and Fawn, and Linda and her husband/boyfriend/whatever are having dinner together.  Or we see his daughter and her son playing gameboy together.  Shippers love extremely obscure males having some basic interaction with another obscure female character, that they can build massive fanfiction dramas where their basic intereactions mean true and undying love)   I'm not sure I'd want to see an episode built around them, but every so often an extra scene or joke about them would be fun.

Like the two couples double dating could just be a background scene at Elzar's, or it could be a one off joke. Something like this.

Fawn: It's so nice to see you and Robert are getting married again! 
Linda: Well, we've realized we're not getting any younger and no one better has come along, and well, the kids seem happy about it.
Morbo: A toast!  To Robert.  May he make Linda happy again, and together may they spawn more offspring.  But if he crosses her, and I will destroy him!
*polite laughter.*
Morbo: But seriously Robert, if you ever make her puny human tear glands activate, I WILL DESTROY YOUUU!!!!
Fawn: Have you decided where you're going to honeymoon?  Venus is lovely this time of year.

Fawn is mentioned by Morbo in an early episode, where he mentions that his wife, Fawn, loves Elzar's cooking.  I think it is in "The 30% Iron Chef".  But she is first revealed in "Three Hundred Big Boys".

Futurama could easily go on for over ten seasons with the right writers. They do have the entire Universe to explore, and at least one parallel to explore, and a fourth dimension, and a galaxy of terror, and their own neighborhood. Oh my yes, they could keep on trucking and trucking and trucking

She wasn't said by name though, but you're right that does establish that Morbo has a spouse and the mother of his beliggerent and numerous offspring.  And it could be that she got destroyed, and Fawn is actually wife number two.  Or five.

Nice dialogue, I enjoyed that and I could imagine that in an ep. I even imagined their voices while I was reading it without even realising I was, and that’s usually a good sign...

Btw, if Morbo's race ever did invade Earth it would look something like this…

Very true, this is why it makes me so sad that they insist on putting out pointless eps like Yo Leela Leela. No one knows how much longer Futurama will continue for, so they should be getting all of these amazing potential ideas out of the Futurama universe covered before going down the lonely road of eps like Yo Leela Leela filler ...
