Critic Reviews for Futurama Season 6

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (3)

Most heartening, this Futurama doesn't feel like an exercise in nostalgia, like some old rocker returning for a greatest hits tour.

I thought this was a pretty good season for the show, not as great as where it left off, but generally good, with a few episodes on either side of the bell curve.

No other show can pull off the inexplicability that is Futurama, then basically admit it to the audience.

"Reincarnation" brought Futurama's season to a close in a wonderfully hilarious and original way.

Apr 19, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Overall, this was a strong start for the returning Futurama. I can only hope that the push towards much more adult jokes continues. As far as the humor level, the writers never missed a beat.

"Cold Warriors" was a pretty great episode, but then I'm generally a sucker for this sot of episode.

Solid but unspectacular...

Apr 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The Futurama writers have mastered the art of finagling a satisfying conclusion with just the right amount of open-endedness.

Apr 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Futurama is like a great comic-book; it might have been a while since you last read it, but you love the characters, and every now and then you learn something new, making you glad you went back to that world.

But once that was hit, there was a steady stream of smart, funny and emotional storytelling. Welcome back, Futurama.

Apr 19, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

There's a real sense of the epic as the current season of Futurama comes to an end. And when I say 'epic', I don't mean it in the rather overused and redundant way we get constantly these days. I mean truly awe inducing and magnificent.

The second half of Futurama's sixth season has been marked with a return to consistency.

Audience Reviews for Futurama: Season 6

  • Aug 11, 2019
    After a successful run of straight-to-video movies, Futurama is revived by Comedy Central for a sixth season. The Planet Express crew gets into all new adventures with Fry building a robot Leela, Bender and Amy hook-up, Leela becomes the writer of a children's TV show, and the Professor travels back in time to rectify the actions of a distant ancestor. The original cast returns and are joined by a couple of interesting guest stars, including Chris Elliott, Katee Sackhoff, and Patton Oswalt. But unfortunately the comedy isn't as clever and sharp as it was in the original series; relying more on topical humor and parodying current pop-culture (iPhones, Twitter, Comic-Con, gay marriage). Also, it tries a little too hard at times to recapture the magic. Still, it does deliver a lot of laughs and there are some good parodies and satire. It's pretty rough, but Season 6 is an entertaining and fun return to the world of Futurama.

    Season 6 brings new elements into the show such as satire of pop culture (eyepod) and parody of classic story (Moby Dick). Most episodes were great and enjoyable.

    In my opinion, the show is not as good after the movies. The episodes are very repetitive and the jokes become extremely predictable and less consistent. However, there are still some spectacular episodes like "The Late Philip J. Fry" and "Cold Warriors" that every fan needs to watch. Overall though, this season is a bit of a dissapointment.
  • Aug 18, 2017
    While it's more of a mixed bag than the original run, there are more than a few moments of brilliance peppered throughout to make it a worthy addition to the Futurama canon.
  • Aug 10, 2017
    Futurama Season 6 is hit-and-miss, Neutopia and Yo Leela Leela are a definite miss while Benderama and Prisoner of Benda and Attack of the Killer App are Hits.
  • May 30, 2014
    The return could have been a disaster, but thankfully there isn't too much to complain about, and there are some new top episodes to be made here. Zombie Futurama this ain't.

    incredible funny and hilarious
