    Twenty-six new episodes to run on Comedy Central as soon as mid-2010.


    Sadly, still no Life In Hell series.

    I got the impression from the last movie, well it wasn't an impression on the DVD commentary, Groening and Cohen said they were done.
    And they made the last movie as kind of a finale.
    Guess not.
    And I'm such a baby, the episode with Fry's dog always makes me cry.

    I have always considered the end of that episode, with "I Will Wait For You" playing, to be one of the saddest endings to anything on film that I have ever seen. Any show. Any movie. Anything filmed. Ever.

    Or most poignant. Maybe "saddest" is the wrong term.

    Regardless, I cry every time. I'm such a baby, I get dusty ANTICIPATING that scene.

    This one's for you, Jay:

    How many movies have there been? I watched Bender's Big Score a few weeks ago, but I don't think I ever caught the second one, if there was one.

    There is at least one more: "Beast with a Billion Backs"

    Glad to hear it's coming back. Love the show for so many reasons.

    Fry's dog gets the most ending love, but there are tons of great ones. The end of the episode where Leela meets her parents is fantastic, as is the ending of the last of the original series, where Fry dials up a crudley drawn Leela and himself on the holophoner.

    Come to think of it, that opera episode is one of my favorite ever, in any show.

    "Bender's Game" and "Into the Wild Green Yonder" IIRC are the other two.

    The one with the time skips, where they play basketball against the Globetrotters, was great too. Funny episode in it's own right, and then at the end you see Fry's love note in the stars to Leela blown to smithereens -- and he just kind of accepts it. It's heartbreaking.

    One of my faves is where Leela and Fry have to pop the can lids in a certain order to override the Planet Express ship. Fry sees Leela's oxygen running low and hooks his up to hers.

    The 'you leave me breathless' candy heart is an awesome touch.

    If these are not the movies cut into three episodes each, then my wife and I are about to be the happiest people on the face of the planet!
    You have to love a series that has a payoff for a joke in the first episode in a movie that they release years later after being canceled even.

    I'm disappointed that no one has yet suggested that someone else bite their shiny metal ass.

    So I'll do it - bite my shiny metal ass! ;D
