Another week, a new Futurama episode this past Wednesday. It is time to give you my thoughts and impressions about this electoral story.

Futurama Season 7A - 7acv03 - Decision 30127acv03 - Decision 3012

Well, this episode was very entertaining. It had the upcoming elections featured in the year 3012, where Leela gets involved in the campaign of Senator Travers (perhaps you can't remember him) fighting against Nixon's head, but it turns out that he has no Earth Birth certificate (sounds familiar right?). The timing of the episode was right, perhaps some intro scenes, like the hospital entrance, could be shorter. The scene back from the hospital about the zebra entrance and the one of Bender vacuuming Leela's hair are kinda fun (even when they are just visual jokes).

One thing about this new Futurama Season 7A, is that 2 of 3 episodes have a sci-fi twist that really works (like the Ben twist in episode 7acv01 - The Bots and the Bees). Perhaps this was not an emotive story like the previous two, but it is looking greater that Season 6B in 2011, somehow because Comedy Central is following the original production order, and also Futurama writers seems to be back on track (even more) with some awesome episodes. The end is very good, everyone forgetting about Travers (what Travers?) because of a time paradox D: and Nixon being re-elected without an opponent, just like Bender said: Nothing ever changes... Politics 101. I'm not giving everything away on the plot this time..

This episode was written by Patric M. Verrone, he is also co-executive producer of the series. He wrote some great episodes, like "A Fishful of Dollars", "I Second that Emotion", "A Clone of My Own", "The Sting", "Attack of the Killer App" and "Ghost in the Machines" + more!

1.45 million meatbags and bots watched this episode the back Wednesday, looking good since the previous 2 episodes got 1.6 million viewers.

Come on people, do not forget to watch Futurama every Wednesday at 10pm/9c on Comedy Central, tell everyone to tune in to keep the series strong, I really thing you should see this 3 first episodes of the season!

If you wanna, say what you think about this episode in the comments bellow, any point of view, idea, thought or whatchacallit.. discution is always welcome.
