I'm told they do - I don't necessarily always agree.
BUT - it was great to be at Senaatintori when they performed there right after they won the Eurovision Song Contest ;)

Well, my kids have heard that winner song to death... I'm glad that part is over LOL. I like rock and partly heavy too, but that song is simply to... simple.

Sad Finland did so bad this year. It was actually a good mix of different genres. Not that I'm into Eurovision Song Contest, but I'm forced to see it every year :-\

I actually like to watch the contest every year, simply because it gives a good variety of different styles of music from around Europe. I personally didn't expect Waldo's People to get in to the Finals even, so they did better than I thought :D

I really like Homer as a character, but hard to say if he is my absolute favorite.
And also I really can't name one particular episode as my favorite, after seeing them all multiple times.
I do like the way the series has evolved from the first episode to the latest season, but still I guess I'd have to go looking
for the best episode in some of the first seasons.

Futurama ain't bad, but not as good as the Simpsons. :)

Not one of them super critical people like I am then. The show in recent years, namely since Season 10 has gone downhill ever since Mike Scully took the Executive Producer seat (he stepped down for Season 13, with Al Jean taking his place and the quality hasn't been that much better)

For most people, including myself, Futurama is preferred more than The Simpsons. :P
