"Hey, in case Hulu cancels us, would we consider moving to Amazon?"
"Fuck no."

I don’t know why the “Things happening 1000 years in the future are remarkably like things happening right now” conceit isn’t hitting for me anymore. Science fiction is always about today, but it just seems too precisely about exactly today in this new season.

I mean, it wasn't as bad as the Doctor Who episode about AmazonKerblam!, but that's not a high bar to pass. As with the other episodes thus far this season, I was mildly amused by moments in the episode, but otherwise felt like, eh, what's the point?

I may be in a minority, but I’ve found these episodes surprisingly good! I was braced for the worst, but these have all brought smiles to my face.

This one may have been a bit on the nose, but it was still fun to me.

Got my Shingles vaccine yesterday and am really feeling it today. Watched this while stretched out in bed feeling pretty ugh.

It did feel a bit less inspired than some of the best of Futurama. Even so, I got quite a few good laughs out of it. It might not be peak Futurama but it's still plenty fun.

...consider moving to Amazon...

Hmmm - I don't know, but I could have sworn at least 2-3 'Amazon Originals' do tend to poke a little fun at their hosting megacorp, would have been one of the following; Made for Love, Upload or 'The Consultant'.
