I got the Volume 5 DVD over the weekend (I'm from the UK, couldn't be bothered waiting further), listened to the commentaries and I was quite interested in what David X. Cohen was saying in a couple of them about the show having a smaller writing staff due to budgetary reasons and some of the more "classic" Futurama writers (along with some new ones) were brought in to write as freelancers.

I started wandering whether they'd have a higher budget now that the show's been renewed again but for whatever reason, I assume they won't. But if they did or if they decide to bring certain people in the writing staff who weren't on full-time in Season 6, who would you like to see back?

I, personally, would like see Lewis Morton back on the show full-time. He's probably my favourite writer and I remember being excited last year when I found that he'd written one of the episodes that was coming up (and damn, he didn't disappoint!). I don't know if he's written another one in the upcoming batch of 13 episodes, but I hope he has. Plus, he's great fun on the commentaries haha

I tried looking for some before I made the post but couldn't really find any.

Well, I think that record's been beaten now considering the movies and new episodes.

I'd like to see Kristen Gore come back to the show.  Whatever happened to her?

I think it's Ken Keeler; I believe he and Lewis Morton tied for most episodes written in the original run.

I think she wrote for Saturday Night Live for a couple years.

Kristen Gore has also published three novels of questionable quality (I once tried to read the first of these, "Sammy's Hill"; it's kind of chick lit-y and completely un-Futurama-y), but that's neither here nor there.
