    I set up a Series Link for new episodes of Futurama 2010 and found that all 6 episodes scheduled for Thursday 6/24 will be recorded, even though the first 4 half-hours seem to be the exact same episode, Into the Wild Green Yonder. Can it be that the same title is being applied to 4 different episodes?

    Yes. It's the movie from the latest DVD/Blu-Ray release. It's being shown in four thirty-minute parts.

    Yep, I just checked Wikipedia, which says Into the Wild Green Yonder is the last of a series of four straight-to-DVD Futurama movies. Elsewhere on the Web, someone says it's the best of the four.

    Glad I'm recording it. I may not have seen it.

    BTW, all 6 episodes are marked "First Aired: 6/24/2010".

    As a big Futurama fan I can say that "Into The Wild Green Yonder" is the best of the direct to DVD/Blu Ray Futurama movies.

    And I'm glad the series is back tomorrow!!!! Huzzzah!

    Yeah, they constructed all 4 of the direct-to-dvd releases so that they could break them up into 4-parters for airing on TV. They never aired them as standalones though... always airing all 4 parts back-to-back... BUT each one gets a new set of opening credits, which includes the changing credit gags... so there is a tiny bit of "new" material that wasn't on the DVD releases of the movies.

    Meanwhile, don't forget to pay attention that starting at 10pm EDT (after the 4-parter) they will be showing TWO NEW episodes... so make sure you catch both of those.

    Which didn't matter since Comedy Central covered them up with credits. :(

    Yeah... that really bugs me. Doing ads and popups during a show are bad enough, but when they actually cover up stuff that you want/need to see.. that is annoying.

    Cool! I like it.. It's kind of strange though.
