As I said at TFP, a Local TV Station of my country is showing the Futurama 5th Season episodes. Yesterday (July 10th) that TV Station showed "4ACV06 - Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV" translated of course!. Just to let you know...

This seems the best place to bring up an idea I've had recently. In Bender Should Not Be Allowed On TV
and in Pygmoelian (Simpsons)
Does anyone think these two sound very similar?

It was good, lots of jokes... Since I watched the episode in Spanish maybe I missed some...

Keep in mind Moe's episode mainly centered around him getting plastic surgery.

This episode didn't air in the US yet as FOX wanted to use it as the finale (because of the title). People at Curiosity didn't like them and told them to use Devil's Hands instead. Hope they succeeded.

That's very interesting, because Sky (UK) told me they were allowed to air "S5" episodes, but they ended up not doing so...I guess this suggests it was because they didn't fancy pissing off Fox, not because they weren't allowed to  smile

The Local TV stations of my country could show Movies that don't even are in Local Theaters. I think FOX LA gives a damn showing the "S5" episodes first...

Thanks a million Javier for the description!  This episode sounds really interesting!  But also, it's clear that it wouldn't make a good series finale.  It's a good thing that DXC and company intervened.

I can't believe FOX wanted to air that as a series finale! I can almost hear them.
