Just caught up myself. The last episode really was a banger. This show has really come into its own. I mean to say, it has stepped up to a whole new caliber. Really hilarious; the characters really have character, not just some Fighter/Ninja/Wizard shite, but real character. (I'm over-tired, sorry if that doesn't agree) The thing is though, right as they pop the most hilarious shit and I'm rolling big-time, they go into some seriously depressing shit. I'm not sure if this is every episode, but I can't remember one where it didn't. This must be the style Groening likes, and it's part of the thing, but for me, it's a real downer. Still watch, and still enjoy it, but damn. I watch the show to laugh and feel better. My life is shit. If I want to be sad, I'll watch the news or something. It sort of pulls me out of the immersion to be jerked like that. I'm laughing hard and can't wait to see what happens next, and suddenly, one of the characters is dead or something and the violins play . WTF.
