** "[[Recap/FuturamaS7E3Decision3012 Decision 3012]]" is basically 20-odd minutes of "Birthers are bigoted morons". Made especially painful by the fact that the whole controversy had died down immensely by the time the episode aired.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Opinions on ''Futurama: The Game'' vary. While it's not a terrible game, is an uninspired ThirdPersonShooter, merely SoOkayItsAverage by most fans' standards. While the graphics do look rather nice and the character designs translate well into 3D, its main saving grace is its hilarious story, which was penned by the actual writers and performed by the voice actors of the show. Not only does it manage to lampshade a few aspects of the show, but it makes fun of a few video game clichés as well. Luckily, all of the cutscenes (and some filmed gameplay) were strung together and released as an unofficial episode, which is available as a special feature on the second [[TheMovie film]] release, ''The Beast With a Billion Backs''.

*** Incidentally, that very episode contains the line: "This must be a hard time for those who confuse TV actors with real-life friends." The episode aired right around Cory Montieth's death (although the writers couldn't have possibly known about it), making it a shockingly relevant line at the time.

* FaceOfTheBand: While Fry and Leela are the main characters and get the most focus in plots, Bender is considered the face of the show and the most recognizable character, much like Stewie on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and Cartman on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''.

Added DiffLines:

** Kif in later seasons. Some fans don't mind his relationship with Amy, while others didn't like how his personality changed from a DeadpanSnarker to an ExtremeDoormat.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: "[[Recap/FuturamaS6E4PropositionInfinity Proposition Infinity]]" was an allegory for legalizing/delegalizing gay marriage at the time. The episode could have provided insightful commentary on the issue, but instead ended up reducing an important social issue to BlackAndWhiteMorality. In particular, Farnsworth was given a very generic FreudianExcuse for opposing robosexual marriage, when his opposition could have instead been out of genuine concern for society and/or the Planet Express crew, thus making his change of heart far more valuable than it was.

** The "Susan" butt boil is quickly getting a lot of this for various reasons, such as it being an already outdated joke in an already topical-heavy episode, and for just having a really annoying voice.
