Ben and Mike take you on a podcast voyage back through one of the greatest TV shows Fox ever cancelled. We also talk about a lot of other tangets that come up, whether it's Battlebots or A-1 Steak sauce.
Back to the Futurama Finale
This is it. We're done. Podcast over. I hope you enjoy our self-congratulations, our lister-provided-congratulations, and a few surprises along the way.
See you on some other podcast! (That podcast is at https://goodmorninggreendale.com no need for us to be coy about it)
Ben says goodbye. Mike says goodbye.
This is it. It's the last one. We're talking about the last Futurama episode and it is called "Meanwhile" and we liked it. Fry and Leela finally get some quality time together. Maybe too much time? No, no it's just the right amount of time.
Meanwhile (heh, get it?) we talk about the English language melting, Cornface dot com, marriage proposals, and y'know... feelings. Feelings about the end of the TV series we love so much.
Ben becomes time-ified spaghetti. Mike feels challenged by hot surfers.
Stench and Stenchibility
It stinks! Wait, what is this, a podcast where we talk about the television series, The Critic? No, sir! This is Futurama land. But it does stink because Zoidberg makes it stink. But he also finds love. Somehow. Through all the stink. It's a lot to process.
Also a B-plot involving a joke well past its prime.
Meanwhile we are talking about the hot new trend in Phoenix, Arizona that should definitely be called the Orange Joe.

Ben skips straight to the blood loss. Mike goes to the domed body parts Superdome.
Murder on the Planet Express
We're going on the Back to the Futurama Studios corporate retreat! And we probably won't die!
Hey also the Planet Express crew is also doing a retreat. And they might just die thanks to an alien that gets loose on the ship.
We're also talking about the names for rooms where one might eliminate waste, Jesus camps, exciting sounding books you can buy right now on Amazon.
Ben watches his favorite holiday movies. Mike joins a coven of rats.
Game of Tones
An evil tone is going to destroy the planet why not? But that's not important, because most of this episode is hanging out in Fry's dreams. Or memories. Or dream memories. It's not totally clear, but it does mean he can't go to the Booby Tuesday's.
Ben, meanwhile, does the important business of pointing out that popcorn is a SCAM. That's the kind of thing they'd say "Hey you'll want to check out this important thing on the news tonight but we're going to wait until after sports." Also, Mike talks about sports. It's kind of his thing.
Ben is pro-rulers-at-movie-theaters. Mike is forced to also be pro-rulers-at-movie-theaters.
Leela and the Genestalk
We're taking a look at the CONTROVERSIAL world of GENETIC ENGINEERING and also the somehow less controversial world of being a big ball of tentacles with a face. Leela is a big ball of tentacles with a face. Fry still loves her though. Not controversial.
Meanwhile we talk an awful lot about left-handedness in cartoons and the best made up disease to have. We also contemplate the best condiment to put on a hat prior to eating it.
Ben wishes to be the friction in your genes. Mike takes a look in a book.
Thanks guys - loving re-living one of the best shows that Fox ever cancelled.
I didn’t realise how much I needed this podcast until I listened to it. Brilliant. 5 stars
Good news, everyone!
Excellent podcast. Love the constant references and in jokes between Mike and Ben, and it's just great to reminisce about Futurama.
