Once again, I won't be around in chat this weekend. I hope to correct this for the next one...

Hope you do get caught up, because The Prisoner of Benda is an absolute stone cold classic.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

This thread has been quiet for a while, huh?

We have concluded the Futurama watch. in the end, it was OK! The show never hit the heights of seasons 1-4 again in my opinion, and the finale wasn't that great, but it had it's moments. Generally it was all a bit too mean spirited I think. But it was overall a fun way to spend a whole bunch of saturday evenings.

So we're going to continue!

Next up will be The Venture Brothers Season 3! Same time (9PM GMT) same place (our irc)

Agree with you on F'rama. Well, I'd be harsher on it, but the post-movies seasons did have at least a couple of episodes I wouldn't want to lose.

Would love to say I'll be in for Venture Brothers, but life... I'll give it strong consideration, at least.

I guess Venture's the popular vote, can't guarantee I'll find a way to get ahold of that on time though.
As for F'rama... if anything I've found myself becoming a lot more apethetic towards it in general, even the earlier seasons.

Guys, just to let you know, it's likely I won't be in time for rewatch today, though it's not yet certain. If I'm not online by the we start, go ahead without me.

Also, May, I apologise for not sending the file earlier this week, but I'm uploading it as we speak. It should get there shortly.
