    You will giggle repeatedly.
  2. No doubt about it, Futurama and its entire splendid voice cast is back, sly wit, social satire and all. So, too, are the disembodied heads of celebrated figures.
  3. I'm happy to report that, much like the disembodied head of Richard Nixon (who shows up in the second episode), it's the same barrel of laughs it always was.

    Fans who feared they'd seen the last of Matt Groening's cult classic will be thrilled to see the show return in good form.

    Since there will be back-to-back shows tonight, the premiere episode, "Rebirth," starts where the last DVD left off. It's not as good as the second episode, so be sure to stay tuned.

    The ensuing jokes aren't new. The men-turned-women only want to know if this planet has a shopping mall. The men still won't ask for directions. nBut Groening has never relied heavily on subtlety, and his strong suits, like timing and tone, keep things moving.

    Probably the most uneven, and at times borderline unessential, season yet. But when Futurama hit, with episodes like "The Late Philip J. Fry" and "Reincarnation", they were some of the best the series has done, and would fit in nicely with the highs of season 4 and 3. Full Review »

    The fantastic thing about the new series is that it's able to pick up where it left off without hitch: no small feat by any means. It's exactly what it always was: a high-quality, intelligent animated series that could pick a fight with "The Simpsons" any day of the week and fare quite well. Full Review »
