OK, maybe I was in a bad mood when I typed that post and took what you said the wrong way. Sorry.

Friends?

Back OT, I thought 'Fun on a Bun,' was pretty PG rated. I can't remember all of it so prove me wrong if there's anything bad in there.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that "Love's Labours Lost in Space" and "Spanish Fry" seem pretty appropriate for children.

Yeah, I think they're appropriate enough, of course people have different opinions on what is considered appropriate or not. But, I agree with you on those ones.  smile

Zapp had a few seuxual innuendos "This time I'm the one judging the sausage" and probably a few more, I'd say it's ok for a 10 year old but not for much younger.

Viva Mars Vegas & The Inhuman Torch seem pretty good for a young kid.

I'd need to rewatch it, but according to my memory, 'Torch' was safe. The story would be very easy to follow for kids, and things such as the high voice gags would be humorous to them. Viva Mars Vegas had a few iffy jokes, but they were very minor, so I'd say that one would be safe as well. 'Fun on a Bun' though is definitely not appropriate. It had innuendos galore, making it unsuitable.

Yea, like I said I can't remember all of it.

Some parents might not like Zoidberg's line about hell in The Inhuman Torch, bit I'd say most parents would be fine with it.

Well, the line is minor enough to be ignored easily, in my opinion. Plus, some people may find it to be funny I a 'Did he just say that?!' sort of way.

Yeah, but I've seen parents of my cousins who won't let their 5 year olds watch a movie because of one uttering of the word damn, but then again they let them listen to "Blurred Lines" a pretty misogynistic song, so....   roll eyes

Bendin' in the Wind was a very tame one. The bong at the start will completely fly over their heads, and most kids at that age will literally think it's a device to speed up and slow down time. :P There's also some language, but it's commonplace Futurama stuff. The plot may not interest them too much, since it's about folk singing rather than fighting aliens or visiting distant planets, but it wouldn't be too inappropriate to show.

Despite the fairly graphic splattering of Fry at the end, Meanwhile is possibly the tamest Futurama episode sex and language-wise, and if it wasn't for that scene, I'd heavily recommend it.

I'd also recommend Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles, it has a very simple and fun plot with lots of slapstick, like the Zoidberg transformations, and despite a few iffy gags, like Farnsworth's aside about "ultra-porn", most kids would enjoy it a lot. Maybe Pazuzu at the end could creep them out though...

I would say Meanwhile is too violent for kids, but I'll agree with Leelas Hurdles.

Meanwhile does have the list of places where Fry & Leela have had sex, but that's all I can think of.
