Two episodes in and we're already running a bit long! But we end up having some deep conversations about life and junk as we talk about the episode The Series Has Landed.
Key talking points revolve heavily around Bender and how awesome Bender is, and we discuss how Fry maybe represents humanity a little more than we're comfortable with.
Somewhere in Alanis Morisette's attic, a portrait of Ben gets a little more Ironic; Mike carries his harpoon and perhaps... sings a whaling tune?
Fry and Bender become roommates, with HILARIOUS results?
Major talking points: Robots and alcoholism, or whatever the opposite of robot alcoholism is, boring geology lectures, flavors of mummies, and the definition of "preemptive."
Ben falls in love with robots and wants to kill all humans. Mike just wants more tweets (tweet at us at @backtofuturama!)
Have the boy lay out your formal shorts! You're gonna need 'em for this rip-roarin' tale of romance and debauchery and steam pipes.
Talking points include whether or not you think Bender or Zoidberg is the better character, proper pronunciation of champagne, velour everything, and super disgusting sounding ringtones your friend's wife is going to love.
Ben grows more eyes. Mike falls in love with a lobster monster falling in love with an actual lobster.
Prepare your ears for a properly formatted data file!
Today we talk about a lot of old technology as Fry and Leela have to pretend to be robots. Things get very complicated very quickly.
Other talking points include Blernsball, more robots, puppies that are not mechanical in any way, and the holiest of robot holidays. It's a robot heavy episode.
Ben cleans the gunk out of the mouse. Mike accidentally activates futuristic technology.
What would you do if you suddenly had ONE JILLION DOLLARS? Would you buy a 20th century apartment or Ted Danson's skeleton?
Talking points for today's show mostly revolve around pizza toppings and the sorts of things you might do with all the money in the world. Spoiler alert: Ben would buy a fleet of blimps. Also, Mom's Friendly Robot Oil comes up a fair bit.
Ben proves he is not good at impressions; Mike listens to some classical music about the buttocks.
Strap in because this may be our dumbest episode yet. That didn't turn you away? Good, because today we're talking about that time Fry accidentally drinks an emperor and in turn becomes emperor himself!
Talking points include frosty beverages, names for a parkour podcast, and a return to Ben's Euphemism Corner.
Ben eats a big heaping bowl of salt. Mike gets excited for Podcast Day.
Today's episode is A Big Piece of Garbage! No, that's the name of the episode, we'll let you judge the quality for yourself. But we do spend a lot of time laughing at jokes like we are 12 years old.
Talking points are elastic memory, amorphous mayoral duties, and ACTION MUSIC.
Ben yells about the usefulness of a smelloscope. Mike appears to have drawn a doodle of him as a cowboy.
Get ready for a religious experience and a trip through heck as we join the church of Robotology!
Talking points are why Futurama keeps making fun of New Jersey, dramatic irony, the Beastie Boys, and floppy disks.
Ben is complacent about his right to party. Mike explains the Beastie Boys to a younger audience.
All hands on the fiesta deck! Today we're taking a trip back in time to the year 1997 to bask in the glow of the 1997 hit James Cameron Film, Titanic.
Episode talking points are hitting references when they are still relevant, legendary limbo champions, Zoidberg / Jellyfish Lady love, and the return of Zapp Brannigan.
Ben thinks Zapp is creepy. Mike thinks that a bucket of PBR is too much.
It's back to school time as we endeavor to become college dropouts at Mars U!
Suggested talking points are the mathematics of wonton burrito meals, the habitability of Utah, regulation pantyraid ladders, and the how to spike a punchbowl with or without monkeys.
Ben questions why he didn't break Mike's legs. Mike relates to Fatbot.
