    I don't know what's worse Xbox exclusive or another return with more lackluster episodes....anyway the only think I'm feeling right now is this:

    Xbox!? WHY!?!

    I mean, wouldn't it make more sense to release new episodes through a more diverse service like Netflix? After all, I'm sure not every Futurama fan is a gamer. Such a venture just seems like Matt and David would be shooting themselves in the foot. Unless of course, their plan is to make any future DVD sets of Xbox exclusive episodes sell better by making their initial availability much more limited.

    Again, come back when you can make a consistent flow of really good episodes. The ratio of lackluster to well done is astounding for a show I once hailed as the greatest animated series ever made.

    You're BoJack Horseman, no cure for that.

    Well, here's the finalized box art for the complete series DVD set.



    At least it's the same style as the current DVD art, but it's really to simple for my liking. Really wished they would've been more creative, at least having a group shot of the crew on it or something to represent the complete series better.

    nah it looks fine

    Comedy Central couldn't afford to keep Futurama afloat with 13-episode seasons. If a cable network can't even afford it, then XBOX's budget for a new season of Futurama will be like $6.

    Like Seth MacFarlane's addiction to creating terrible new shows, Matt Groening has a problem with concluding a show. He needs therapy.

    What do you think they put in the Bug Juice?
    Bugs?
    No they don't. Come on...shut up.

    Or worse, having a very unimportant character (almost forgettable sometimes) for the cover. Like Ricky. That was his name right, that gay guy or whatever? Or I don't know, why not stick somebody like Smelly Hippie?

    I'm pretty happy with this new complete series cover, but why not fix a problem here? Make the first four seasons be on DVD (or Blu-ray, less discs, more features, and closer to the original quality), the rest on Blu-ray. We know that some still want Bender's Big Score and Beast with a Billion Backs on Blu-ray, you know, being HD and all.

    You mean Randy, the guy who occasionally yells quotes in the background and for some reason is treated like a regular recurring character in Overclockwise and Stench and Stenchibility? He's...funny.

    I'm fine with the simplistic cover since it does fit in with the style of the other DVD's, but it would've been nice to have seen them do something more complex or interesting to represent the entire series, especially given some of the cool art they've done in the past. Eh, either way, nothing will ever be able to beat the Bender head in terms of a cool DVD package.

    Randy, that was it. Yeah he was funny, but a pretty big background character.

    That Bender head was awesome. Should have had a body to store the extra discs when they would hit 20 seasons of zombie Futurama.

    In the event of another new season of Futurama, who would actually write it? Dan Vebber has already rejoined American Dad, Eric Horsted is executive producer on something called "Bounty Hunters" according to IMDB, Michael Rowe is the new showrunner of "Bob's Burgers" and Josh Weinstein has a bunch of other projects on the go, so would they have to bring in a team of new writers apart from Keeler and Cohen?

    Vebber didn't seem to have a problem jumping ship back to Futurama last time...so who knows. On a side note though although Vebber never wrote the best Futurama episodes his AD ones were always stellar, so I'm super excited to have him back there.

    Bounty Hunters = contender for worst animated show I've ever watched. It's horrible. Maybe worse than Allen Gregory.

    Now Michael Rowe on Bob's Burgers, no. I'm not really sure who started that rumor but I'm pretty sure that's not actually true.

    I'm not familiar with Vebber, which episodes did he write for Futurama and AD?

    he wrote a handful of seasons 1-3 episodes in american dad, all of which are pretty good. in futurama, he wrote all the crappy season 3/4 episodes, and the dumbest revival episodes.

    I finally watched an episode last night (Season 1, Episode 6. The whole thing happened to be on YouTube and I had nothing better to do) it was like somebody tried to mesh Brickleberry with the Republican Space Rangers cartoon from the Grand Theft Auto games and then to top it all off, threw in that tone of dirty yet safe humour vibe that Crash Canyon had.

    Annnnnnd, despite liking all of the above, yeah, "Bounty Hunters" is pretty fucking bad. You know you're show sucks when the only half decent thing about it is the voice of Larry the fucking Cable Guy.

    That's kind of my point. Like, he's really crappy, yet better than anything else in the show.

    "Roger Codger", "Not So Desperate Housewives", "The American Dad After School Special", "A.T The Abusive Terrestrial", "Meter Made", and "Escape From Pearl Bailey". Basically all good ones, the last four being straight up gold. He left after production season 3 but is now back for production season 8.

    His Futurama credits are not quite as stellar, they include:

    "Birdbot of Ice-catraz", "Route Of All Evil", "Love and Rocket", "Obsoletely Fabulous" from the original seasons, and "A Clockwork Origin", "Cold Warriors", "Fun On a Bun", "Mobius Dick", "Theif of Baghead" and "The Inhuman Torch" from the revival years.

    Not crazy about any of those tbh. He also wrote "The Zeppo", one of the best Buffy episodes, and "The Book Job", a fairly decent Simpsons episode from the past few years. His best work has definitely been on AD though, which is why I was annoyed he left to go back to Futurama, where he'd probably still be if the show didn't end. I hope we get an episode or two credited to him this year, and I hope very least he's on the actual writing staff (I assume he is, but all I know is he's getting co-executive producer credits).

    Ah, I remember liking all those Futurama episodes besides Thief of Baghead, which wasn't bad but wasn't great. And I haven't seen The Inhuman Torch. But I've liked most of revival Futurama unlike the NHC, so in my eyes he's a pretty solid writer all around.

    Besides Obsolutely Fabulous and Thief of Baghead, his Futurama episodes have all been pretty great actually, especially Birdbot of Ice Catraz, Fun on a Bun, and Möbius Dick. Glad he's back on American Dad again, though his Futurama episodes have been pretty consistently good, especially in the CC run.

    I do like "Birdbot", though I don't think it's the classic I've heard people call it, and "Route Of All Evil" is enjoyable (great subplot). Apart from that I've only seen the later episodes he did once and none really stuck out to me..."Mobius Dick" and "Fun On A Bun" are probably the highlights. Maybe "Cold Warriors" was good too, I don't remember it though.

    I like every episode he's written for all the shows except the Inhuman Torch. That episode just sucked plain ass. The Book Job is one of the better latter day Simpsons episodes for sure. I REALLY enjoy that one. His American Dad episodes are funnier and some of the best episodes of the series and while his Futurama episodes ARE great they aren't nowhere near best of the series material.

    Other than "The Inhuman Torch" I like all of those. I do think his AD ones are better though. I hope he writes some really great episodes this season!
