I really like this TV series. It's based off the Simpson's, thus shares similarities, but the plot with them being from the future with robots adds a lot. The characters are better IMO than the Simpsons.

Sf how did you miss fry in the actors list?

I love this show and can't wait for the new episodes to come out (if they still are?) I would give it a 5/5

I love this show. I find it very entertaining. It's never then Simpsons, so there aren't as many episodes, so I've pretty much seen all of them; which is bad because now, I'm starting to watch it less.

A while ago there was a thread about the show being restarted, can anyone confirm this is still going to happen?

Because I copied the list off IMDB?

I never understood what's got everyone so worked up about this show. Just plain average IMO.

I think the difference between futurama and the others such as Simpsons and Family Guy, and South Park is that it is not all toilet humour. However, with the setting based in the future, it leaves alot of room for beyond current reality jokes, which separates it from the Simpsons.

This and family guy work great together side by side on Adult Swim. I don't laugh out loud that much, but I chuckle and I think of this as a great "unwind from the day" show.

4/5

I love the show - is one of the reasons I am keeping cable TV beyond the 30 day free trial they offered me.

Brightbane - IIRC Billy West also did the voice of Fry... so he is not really mssing.

I like all Groening shows really, so we have this one completed as well. It's a shame it eventually got cancelled.

Funny Show, pity it got cancelled, though Comedy Channel did say they might take it up.

Bender and Zac Branigan are easily the funniest characters on that show.

It seems most everyone (including myself) that I've heard from seemed to like this show, yet it seems to be so underappreciated by the corporate entities who control our content. I think this is primarily due to the fact that while it's certainly brilliant at times, and always amusing, it doesn't truly stand out from the competition.

They have one of the best characters in it. Morbo who also made a short visit to utopia a few years back. He's great fun

Futurama is fantastic! The characters crack me up - Zoidberg with his voracious appetite, Morbo with his scathing remarks about human life, Bender with his unrepentant criminal activities, Hermes, oh that bureaucrat and Fry, with his 20th century anachronisms....

For me this show is like South Park. No brains required to watch it, no thoughts required to enjoy it. I need either South Park or Futurama to sleep at night.
