    Hi,
    Wasn't sure where to post this, but where can i watch or download the Futurama eyePhone episode?

    I am in the UK so one site i found, wouldn't let me watch due to country viewing restrictions.

    Thanks.

    Can't you buy it in iTunes? It's available here in the U.S. so maybe it's available there as well.

    Here's a three minute YouTube clip with some of the best parts:

    The EyePhone

    There are claims that Apple forced Comedy Central to remove a buyer = zombie reference and a "dumb bastards" comment from Mom:

    Did Apple force edit of show?

    The article includes the removed sections which were originally broadcast.

    I watched it. It's pretty good, however, I think their original episodes were a bit more racy and a bit less fake. Purely imho though.

    I thought that was absolutely pathetic, Apple PR acted like a spoilt brat who couldn't take any criticism and proved a point that they act more and more like every of grey building corporation.

    I support Futurama!

    The copy I got from iTunes has the "offending" line intact :rolleyes:

    I thought the episode itself was clever but not funny, same as new South Park episodes.

    Shame on Apple for the edit though. I'm not liking a lot of their recent actions.

    I really like the new Futurama episodes - I'm surprised to see the negative comments! I was expecting it to be not-as-good, but I really haven't noticed any drop in quality compared to the earlier series.

    Perhaps it depends on where your expectations are before you start watching; i didn't want to hope for too much, so i was blown away when it turned out good?

    (Was a bit disappointed at the poking fun at Susan Boyle's appearance - and weird to see that dropped into an episode that spent the rest of the time poking fun at an institution who can afford it rather than a less-than-attractive singer.)
