    The Planet Express crew wants to get all the holidays back like they used to be in the twentieth century, and they also get to learn the true meaning of them. So again the usual, comment on the episode, what you thought or what you wanna see before seeing it, have fun

    I actually think this'll be a good episode, even as a broadcast season finale! I'm really excited, only 5 days to go!

    Oh good thing I checked Futurama today, I completely forgot about this episode, would've missed it. Anyways, love the Christmas (holiday) episodes, expecting the same here.

    I was just wondering if the series is going to continue in 2011? I really hope so! I adore this show so much!! Especially Fry and Leela's relationship! I can't believe I'm so attached to a fictional coupling... Anyway, so the Holiday spectacular is the season finale?


    Please respond! I would so like to know!!

    As far as I understand it, there will be 12-13 more episodes broadcast next year (no word on when yet) to finish out the season order. Hopefully CC will order another season after those are done!

    It is the Broadcast Season 6 finale, but will not be the end of the Production Season 6, either way, there will be a gap between this episode and the next 13 episodes in June 2011

    Shame they couldn't focus on at least one of the stories at the time, I would like to see the expansion of the 3000 Holidays... wish one of the characters made a comment on how practically everyone dies at the end... like a comment on how in the year 3010, the joyous level of holidays about family and gift giving has been lowered down to people dying... which kinda fits with Robot Santa... something like



    Fry: Those stories were awful. We all die in the end...


    Bender: Except for me, who just happen to wrote it as a masterpiece at the last second, but it was the middle story... which should have been first... or the finale.... MY STORY WAS THE BEST!


    Fry: How is this an X-Mas special? It's depressing as Family Guy trying to tell a story without cutaway jokes...


    Leela: Fry, I don't know how you celebrated X-Mas in the past, Fry, but the month of December is a time of death, panic, and woe. Thank Sqadlor it comes once a year.

    I didn't like how at the end of each story, nearly everyone dies...

    The first two segments were good, but I couldn't stand the third one.
