Wow. That's basically a perfectly accurate version. Props for being able to accurately mimic their writing...although not sure if that's props-worthy...

As a regular viewer of the Big Bang Theory, the laughter isn't that eager, but it's a joke they'd tell.

Okay, now I've seen the episode, and that rant about the Matrix smacks of "we're thirty seconds short on this episode, what can we throw together with long shots in CGI and a voiceover?"

And did they Negative Continuity the destruction of Mars? They totally unhappened the destruction of Mars.
Well, IIRC, Mars wasn't actually destroyed at the end of that episode. So either Mars was still habitable or they aired the episodes out of order.

Or they retconned it. Any are a possibility.
Yar har har har har...
My guesses are that this episode takes place before the season premiere, or Mars just went back to its orbit again.

The Futurama wiki says that episode ended with Mars still in Earth orbit, so I guess they (probably the Wongs or Zapp's outfit) towed it back in place.
Why would I write that?
Continuity? No that's for real shows, let's just make more pop culture parodies.

But honestly this episode was pretty good. Yeah it was an Ocean's Eleven parody, but it wasn't obvious about it. It made sense in the context of the story and even if you've never sen the movie it still works. And I like to see Zoidberg get bigger roles.
Remember! Hyperbole is an exaggeration made for comedic effect, and shouldn't be taken literally!

Futurama has been pretty good about continuity actually. They set the Earth spinning backward once and showed it doing so ever after.

This was a pretty "meh" episode, but the room full of charts and Amy saying she wouldn't reveal the full details of her plan until the heist had actually begun were great.

Nobody has an opinion on the nature anthology episode?
Yeah for some reason, this thread isn't in the front of peoples' minds.

The nature anthology episode threw me for a loop. The episode in itself was good, but was it fitting for a finale episode of the season? Did they really PLAN for any proper season finale? Also, they already have the Tales Of Interest series they occasionally make so introducing a second what-if scenerio is odd.

Is it just me, or was that season really short? surprised
 
It was 13 episodes. Which is actually standard for many shows today.

Also, pretty sure it's just a half-season; at least with last season they split it across two years, two batches of thirteen. Don't remember if they did that this year too.

Man, you gotta appreciate how versatile the quotes in Futurama are!

This, for example, can be used in so many contexts...

Stay awesome, people.

Amazon Women in the Mood is the greatest episode ever.

"If I said you had a beautiful body, would you take your pants off and dance around a little?"

"I find the most erotic part of a women to be the boobies."

"What is that? Candy? Candy's for dorks! Gimme that!"

"Death by snu-snu!"

"This one's like a summer guy."

"How about you interface with by ass? By biting it!"

"L-E-E-L-A!"

"You win again, gravity!"

"She's built like a steakhouse, but she handles like a bistro."

"I had snu-snu."

It has to be your place. Mine totally reeks of ocelot piss.

I agree with Purple Dalek. Amazon Women in the Mood gets my vote for one of the funniest episodes of anything, ever.

^^ That's by far my favorite of Zapp's many, many hilarious lines.

This is a title.
Pretty much anything with Zapp in it is gold.
The madness is catching.
