You know that there's a very famous book called Sense and Sensibility, right?

Futurama didn't quite get to that pun, first.

Though I could believe that American Dad! are the first to use the "sensei" pun.

I'd like to take part in this but I remember a mod getting angry back when some of us listed several pages of Die Hard puns in the upcoming films thread.

Blackadder the Third had an episode called "Sense and Senility", though (as well as "Dish and Dishonesty", "Ink and Incapability", "Nob and Nobility", "Amy and Amiability" and "Duel and Duality").

As someone who is generally annoyed by everything Doctor Who, I concur. Awesome shirt.

Oh, and Murder on the Planet Express deserves that nom before Meanwhile.

No it doesn't. "Meanwhile" was the clear nomination for the Emmys this year and if it doesn't win, then it'll be a travesty. The only other contender that comes close, this year, is South Park.

Nominations:

Best Animated Program

Archer ("Archer Vice: The Rules of Extraction")
 Bob's Burgers ("Mazel-Tina")
 Futurama ("Meanwhile")
 South Park ("Black Friday")
 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ("The Manhattan Project")

Best Character Voice Over

Chris Diamantapolous (Mickey Mouse in Disney Mickey Mouse)
 Stephen Fill (Stan in Dog With a Blog)
 Seth MacFarlane (Peter / Stewie / Quagmire (and presumably others) in Family Guy ("In Harmony's Way"))
 Maurice LaMarche (Calculon / Morbo in Futurama ("Calculon 2.0"))
 Seth Green (various characters in Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise)
 Harry Shearer (Mr. Burns / Kent Brockman / Smithers (and presumably others) in The Simpsons ("Four Regrettings and a Funeral"))

Weird not seeing the Simpsons nominated for best Animated program for the first time in years. Anyway, Futurama deserves the win, no contest. It was a fantastic, emotional finale and one of the best episodes of the show's run. Black Friday was one of the better episodes from Season 17, but not an especially great episode of the show, especially on its own. Mazel Tina was funny, but not really Emmy worthy (should've been Christmas In a Car). And the other 2 show's I have no opinion on whatsoever.

As for the voice Emmy, I'd either give it to Shearer (finally he gets a nomination for his work on the show) or Seth Macfarlane (FG may suck, but he still gives one hell of a performance when singing). Maurice I'd be fine with winning, since he did do well on Calculon 2.0, but wouldn't be too disappointed if he didn't win since he has already won 2 beforehand (really wish Billy West was given the nomination this time, he seriously deserves one for the show).

I didn't like Christmas in a Car. Why the fuck would Bob and Linda forgive a man who tries to MURDER THEIR CHILDREN just because it's fucking Christmas? Just... Ugh. I did really enjoy Mazel Tina though, but agree that there were better episodes this season. Still, I'd be happy with the show getting the recognition it deserves. South Park and Archer's entries are really solid, too, and while Meanwhile is probably the best episode of the bunch listed, I'm honestly fine with any of them winning, really (save from TMNT, which I haven't seen).

As for the voice Emmy, I'd either give it to Shearer (finally he gets a nomination for his work on the show) or Seth Macfarlane (FG may suck, but he still gives one hell of a performance when singing). Maurice I'd be fine with winning, since he did do well on Calculon 2.0, but wouldn't be too disappointed if he didn't win since he has already won 2 beforehand (really wish Billy West was given the nomination this time, he seriously deserves one for the show).

While Harry Shearer DOES deserve an Emmy for his work on The Simpsons, let's face it, the cast has been phoning it in for ages now. The bland, lifeless voice work is almost as painful as the bland, lifeless writing on that show these days. Sure, Lamarche has already won, but Calculon 2.0 was some of his best work to date.

I agree that Shearer deserves to be recognised for his performances over the years on the show, but Beamer's right. He's the worst offender for phoning it in these days. Sadly, they missed the chance to give him some credit when he actually deserved it. I think it's partly down to old age rather than him hating what the show has become, but Mr. Burns in particular is just utterly, utterly lifeless nowadays.
Seth MacFarlane does do an excellent job at voicing Family Guy and American Dad!, though. He's a worthy adversary for LaMarche.


As for the nominees for best animated show:
I liked "Black Friday". That trilogy was the highlight of a lackluster season of South Park and I'd say they were pretty great episodes, if far from the show's best work.

Season 5 of Archer was all pretty meh. It was a cool concept but none of the episodes were stand-outs. They all just sort of merged into one and made for an entertaining show but certainly nothing worthy of an Emmy.

Bob's Burgers has never particularly impressed me and whilst I haven't watched it since season 1, I really can't imagine that it's improved drastically since then.

I also don't watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I think you'd have a very difficult time convincing me that it's produced something on par with Futurama, this year.

"Meanwhile" on the other hand was seminal. It was an utterly beautiful piece of work that works as a farewell for die-hard fans of the series as well as just a truly wonderful piece of work with an emotional punch for casual viewers. It's exactly the sort of thing that the Emmys usually go for and it would be awesome if Futurama could snag one last Emmy from its final run.

I guess Meanwhile deserves it, but I would've chosen "Game of Tones" or "Murder on the Planet Express" over it.

Maurice is my favourite voice actor on the show, so I'm glad he got a nom; "Calculon 2.0" was probably his best performance to date. But since he's already won twice, it's no biggie if he misses out.

It has. I almost gave up on it a few episodes into the first season, but by the time I'd reached season 3, it became one of my favourite shows on tv.

I feel like both Meanwhile and Maurice LaMarche are strong nominees. Even though I prefer Murder on the PE, Meanwhile is better representation of Futurama and has grander storyline. And I think voice acting of Calculon was remarkable.

Yeah; "Game of Tones" has loads of nice ideas but the whole thing is really messy and I feel like, if anything, it undermines the epic scope that previous Nibblonian-based episodes had achieved.

Eh, I know it's not perfect but it's still one of more unique Futurama stories in my opinion. Either way, Meanwhile is a solid choice.

Hey guys, I know we've spent years here talking about Futurama and we're unfortunately gonna have to move on at some point. But let's delay that shall we? I'm re-watching the series and writing reviews on my Medium blog. It's a bit of a writing exercise for me, because sometimes I just need to write even if it's not one of my intended projects.

Here's a review of "Space Pilot 3000" and "The Series Has Landed".

Let me know what you guys think.

I just got several seasons of Futurama on Bluray but haven't had time to watch them, yet!

Looking forward to watching with the commentary on.

I'm calling it now:

A Farewell to Arms is about NNY/Earth signing a petition/document/or something to ban all weapons (guns only), then an alien invasion or something along those lines happens and they have to defeat the aliens using some kind of science-y method or something.

I'm hoping it's literally about losing limbs.

You predicted well, tnuk.

Man, it still feels quite recent. It's funny to think that if Futurama hadn't been canceled, we'd be halfway through season 8 by now.
