We're back in a brand new studio and we're talking about part 2 of another movie! Fry gets sad and tries to leave forever. Something really terrible happens to Kif. Zapp does some things, I guess. The Professor goes to jail.

We also talk about cat cameos (cameows), Pokémon, and an unfortunately lot about robot penises. There are some saucy details about conference calls.

Ben chooses Squirtle. Mike chooses Bulbasaur.

Jun 7, 2018

A rift has opened in spacetime, and your friendly Back to the Futurama hosts are here to help you through this trying time. Fry finds love and Kif and Amy find more love and we also talk about the Oregon Trail video game for some reason.

We also talk about proper wedding etiquette (warning: we are probably wrong). We find out about a new band accidentally on this week's Hot 40.

Ben talks to a giant medium-sized ant. Mike is the Sausage Man.

May 31, 2018

We're wrapping up on the last part of the first Futurama movie. MORE time travel ensues! Things get even more confusing! Things are REVEALED

Also we talk about jumping sharks. And which amendments are for your right to party. THERE IS ALSO A SURPRISING M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN PLOT TWIST. We invent a new kind of server farm. Zapp makes questionable decisions.

Ben takes off his glasses and becomes sexy. Mike forgets what he told his wife.

May 24, 2018

Everything just keeps getting worse as the scammers keep scamming everything. We find out some more stuff about time travel. A wedding may or may not happen.

There's a whole rant about Family Guy (surprise! Bet you didn't see that one coming). We talk about what the heck a narwhal actually is. We use a lot of Torgo's Executive Powder.

Ben gets an Executive Producer credit. Mike considers the consequences of butt touching.

May 17, 2018

Time travel gets weird and it's about to get weirder. Multiple instances of everybody? Bender needs to pee? SEYMOUR LIVES?

We also talk about what would happen if you woke up and there was a clone of yourself, Renaissance painters, levels of doom, levels of Doom, and tired old jokes about the year 2000 election.

Ben buys one gallon of gas. Mike brings some bubble solution.

May 10, 2018

FUTURAMA IS BACK, BABY! But after a few years away, does it hold up? We're going to find out.

We also talk about Family Guy and its influence, butts, Olympic medals in various sports, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, spam ads, and much more!

Ben gets on a soapbox. Mike needs to be more rad.

May 3, 2018

Woah! We finished the original run! We get a little self-congratulatory for that, but we also talk about why we love Futurama and our hopes and fears for the movies and beyond.

We also talk about... uh... Frysier. Just... I can't explain it. Sorry.

Also, we have a Patreon page now! If you want to support us, you can throw money at us over at patreon.com/backtofuturama.

Ben talks a lot about Frasier. Mike is the duct tape holding this podcast together.

Apr 26, 2018

Here we are, the end of an era. Before the reboots, this is where it all ended. That's all she wrote, until she wrote more.

BEN FINALLY GETS DUNKED ON. WHAT? So does New Jersey (we are less surprised by that). We find out Mike does a pretty good impression. We find out there are definitely real deleted scenes with Alanis Morissette and find out what irony truly is (it was in our hearts all along).

Don't forget to check out our guest Kate's podcast at https://subvertedtropescast.podbean.com/

Ben is bad and he should feel bad. Mike parties like the Greeks of old.

Apr 19, 2018

Having some trouble with your love life? Why not try the most appealing aphrodisiac of all: listening to two idiots on the internet making jokes about dongs.

If you're not into that, we also talk about The Scary Door, "Just Friends Spooning", Windows screensavers, Bigfoot, that thing dogs do where they spin around before lying down, and questionable songs. Frankly, if nothing this episode turns you on, we have failed.

Ben plays bass for Wang Coffin. Mike finally crosses the line.

What would you do if you got a crooked $300 tax refund right now? You know you'd spend it on coffee, and we think that's a good choice.

We also talk about Rosanne, Shania Twain, naked bike rides, marine biology, and art.

Flip a coin; heads you listen to this podcast and tails you don't. Think about how unfortunate it is that there's a you in an alternate dimension who didn't get to listen to this episode. How sad for you in the Mongoose universe!

We're talking with James, the other half of Unabashedly Obsessed (unabashedlyobsessed.com) as we talk about parallel universes, sweaty boot rash, ideal podcast guests, great senior quotes for the yearbook, and an accidental rant about another TV show (who is surprised?)

Find James on Twitter at @unabashedjames and check out all his podcasts!

Ben is silver. Mike is gold.

We're getting an upgrade this week as we learn to deal with our new coworkers who are better than us in every way. And we're also talking about the time Bender gets stuck on a deserted island. Bring your 10 best desert island discs.

We also pretend we have a sponsor. And pretend we're a clip show pretending to not be a clip show. We promise 100% it is not a clip show.

Ben has some sweet potato liqueur. Mike manages to do your job before saving your life.

This one is a rough one. We talk about some stuff we don't really like talking about.

But we also do talk about Jerry Seinfeld and Puppy Petting Olympics, soap opera drama, and life changing college courses.

Ben starts a war with Jerry Seinfeld. Mike stands on a desk.

Mar 15, 2018

On today's very special episode of Back to the Futurama, somebody DIES. Maybe? No spoilers. But yeah Fry dies and it's kind of sad.

We also discuss bees, fear of bees, Hot or Not style websites for bees. Neptunian Milhouse makes a comeback. We discuss Leela's fashion choices and Bender's life choices. And we try to figure out if we can swim in jelly.

We're also joined by Erin of the podcast Unabashedly Obsessed! We got her hooked on Futurama, so we've done at least one thing right with this podcast. Check out her podcast at https://unabashedlyobsessed.com

Ben has a phobia. Mike can't swim in jelly as far as he knows.

Hi. We don't know much about Star Trek, so we were the logical choice to talk about this Star Trek related episode of Futurama.

We also talk about one of the worst TV shows Ben has ever seen, Welshie, being a nerd, Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, and I think that's about it. Then some updates on March Ocean Madness 2018.

Ben rants about a bad TV show. Mike makes a bow out of caterpillars.

Would you give up your present life to go have a future life in order to save the universe? What if you were the most important person in the universe? That's exactly what Fry has to deal with in this week's episode.

We also spend way too much time talking about steamed hams, looking questionable stuff up in dictionaries and phonebooks, doing the nasty in the past-y, and of course, The Chaz Experience.™

Ben writes for an important magazine. Mike becomes a sports commentator.

Mike got snowed in and we couldn't record our normal episode, but our podcast buddy Max was already scheduled to record with us. So instead of talking "The Why of Fry," we zag and just talk about Futurama for a bit. We talk Max's Futurama favorites, going up watching the same TV, and other potential shows that might take up the Futurama flag. We also touch briefly on whether or not Futurama stuck the landing when it rebooted.

Ben defends an anime series. Mike is probably fine.

Youth is wasted on the young! Or maybe age is wasted on the old? It could go either way. The important thing is that we hop on the podcast highway to discuss.

We also talk about Tootsie Roll Pop commercials, Podcast Clippy, the ultimate fate of Instagram, and the various larval stages of Zoidberg.

Ben tries to become a tooth fairy. Mike is transforms into a compact disc.

Feb 8, 2018

It's a hot one, like some number of inches from a mid-day sun. Cool off with a tall, cool glass of Futurama. We're here to sell it to you from our weird podcast lemonade stand.

In addition to talking about global warming, we also talk about Al Gore, dark wizards, way too many balloons, and we question whether or not everybody does, in fact, love Raymond.

Ben reflects 40% of Rays. Mike plays a trombone.

Feb 1, 2018

Grab some tissues and be prepared for some EMOTIONS. EMOTIONS!!! Yes, we're talking about perhaps the most infamous episode of Futurama, Jurassic Bark. It's the one with the dog. And it is very, very sad.

We also get an interview to talk all about how sad this episode is, and that perhaps reveals that Mike is kind of a jerk sometimes.

Ben cries in a coffee shop. Mike is a sociopath.

Jan 25, 2018

In our modern society, we have to make sure we know what our kids are watching. But we also struggle with making sure they are cool, but not cool by robbing somebody. Life as a parent can be very complicated.

Luckily, we're here to help! And in the process, we accidentally unleash the immortal power of a certain 90s film, and we have a special guest (it's Bender's Banjo, making its 4th appearance).

Ben consults the dictionary. Mike builds an indestructible fort.

Jan 18, 2018

We start this episode asking some hard hitting questions, but we promise it's relevant to the episode. Zoidberg eats a flag and people get up in arms about it. The only flags harmed in this episode are made up, fictional flags, we cannot stress that enough.

It's Freedom Day, though, so do what you want! Listen to this podcast or don't! Personally, I felt like not writing a very good episode description. Freedom!

Ben starts a very specific radio station. Mike becomes Zoidberg.

Jan 12, 2018

What would your superpower be? Shapeshifting? Flight? Something better than our dumb butts can come up with? Would you be a hero who saves gemeralds or would you STEAL the gemerald?

Aside from the New Justice Team, we talk about alternate social media platforms, IKEA furniture, tiny robots named Andrew, and the most buck wild natural history museum that ever existed.

Ben becomes CEO. Mike commands the loyalty of sea creatures.

Jan 4, 2018

Would you date your primary mode of transportation, even though it violates interstellar shipping statute 437-B? Bender does, and hilarity ensues.

We also talk... uh... way too much about Roman Mars. We talk about the best new flavor of Cthulhu. We talk about controversial art. We talk about something called earwig honey. What don't we talk about?

Ben is 23% invisible. Mike dreams of ranch dressing.

Dec 28, 2017

It's been teased for multiple seasons but we're going to finally find out where Leela comes from! And it's NOT where you'd expect. Unless you've seen this episode before, which you probably have.

We also talk about where to buy goats, holiday specials, deals we've made regarding breakfast cereals, album names, Snakes on a Plane, and much more!

Ben tries to garner a sponsor. Mike knows it's Jon Arbuckle.
