For the most part, I've been impressed with 'Futurama's' return to the airwaves. Some episodes have been a little rocky, but there's always more than a few bumps when a show has to penetrate the thin layer of TV's re-entry layer.
It feels like the old show did, but something has been missing from the last few episodes: a real sense of emotion. One of the great things about 'Futurama' and shows like it are its surprising ability to make you feel something other than laughter. The "Jurassic Bark" episode, the one in which Fry's dog waits for Fry's return long after he's been frozen in the cryogenics lab, was the closest I ever came to crying at a TV show. Thank God for man's inability to divert tears from flowing by sheer will, even though I had to use a pair of pliers and some loose thigh skin to take my mind off of the emotional pain.
