Jump to Season 1 Season 2 Season 3 Season 4 Season 5 Season 6 Season 7

[Part of TV Series: Futurama]

Episode Title
Production Code, Broadcast Code, and Netflix Code.
The bulk of each entry is typically Notes where each line is prefaced by a label (e.g., "B" or "C") which references the time period that I watched the episode. See my post TV Series: Futurama which summarizes these labels.
The last line of an episode entry informs each label's viewing number, date of the viewing, and time of the viewing (when available). For example, "B=2=20121015 19:30-19:52" means notes prefaced by "B" were made during my second viewing of that episode, and the viewing occurred on 20121015 from 19:30 to 19:52.
