I like physics but I love cartoons - Stephen Hawking
7 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Futurama episode "Reincarnation" was the last of the season. The episode is split into three segments. The first segment is in black and white, the second being an 8-bit video game and the third is anime.

The story of these three segments are loosely connected. Basically, a Diamondium comet is spotted and the crew goes to gather dust from it. Now there are a lot of things to like in this episode.

In each story, the different kinds of animation are effectively, yet affectionately lampooned. It's clear that this episode was a labor of love for all involved. Each segment is successful and uniquely funny in the way they explore the different platforms.

The 6th season of Futurama, I think accurately, has been accused of having some quality issues. Then episodes like this one come along and remind us all why Futurama developed such a cult following and ultimately started airing new episodes again.
