S6: Enjoyable season doing what it does, albeit with a few episodes that don't work
After the fifth season I did look forward to returning to this show, and with changes in my life since then, the show has the additional appeal of being 10 minutes long which is about the amount of time I usually get before I need to do something else. The sixth season returns with a run of episodes which pretty much do what the show does well, which is to produce very odd plots and deliver them with comedy derived from the characters. Much like the opening of the previous season was memorable for how little we saw of the main characters, the sixth's first episode has them invisible, meaning the episode is mostly static backdrops and voices.
Of the 10 episodes I would say more than half are of the standard that the show set for itself; good writing, good laughs, and good use of the characters. The second half of the season seems to have some weaker moments, and there were episodes that didn't work as well. Fry Legs seems completely out of place due to its focus on Frylock but yet presenting him completely out of character to the point where I spent the episode wondering if I had missed an episode where this transformation had occurred. The live action episode at the end is one that sounds cooler than it actually was I liked the idea but it was not particularly smart or funny, with only the novelty value making it stick.
Weaker back end aside though, the season will do it for fans, and was good enough to make me look forward to the next.
