Matt Groening doesn’t need to work anymore, The Simpsons is one of those insane, money generating properties that will keep Groening, his family and their kids afloat for generations to come. Still, I’m glad that he still has drive to create something new after this long. The Simpsons is an integral cultural touchstone for most people of my age, and Futurama was one of my favourite shows during its initial run.
I think it was about time I caught up and got these reviews out closer to the time they actually come out. So, surprise: double post!
Our story of corruption and intrigue continue this week as we delve further into the machinations of both the government and the remaining Scout Regiment. Feeling a little less eventful than last week, the wheels continue to spin toward their inevitable collision.
I’m kind of amazed a show that started off with suck relentless, non stop action has managed to become one about political intrigue has managed to keep my attention so keenly, especially when when it produces an episode like this which is basically all dialogue and backstory.
