    Link: Futurama may be coming back. - Because of high DVD sales, Futurama may come back as a series, a la Family Guy.

    I can`t wait to see it come back! I can`t believe it was cancelled in the first place. I kept on hearing that it only had a cult following but I found it to be a funny, smart show. But I`m a cartoon junkie. I could do without Zaf Brannigan in his little mini skirt uniform, tho... I always found it to be a little skeevy.

    In the simpsons there is a hint that futurama was cancelled. In the episode with grandfather rock or whatever, the squeeky voiced teen tries to commit suiside of it, and before he does he yells "Why did they cancel Futurama?!". I always thought that this was just a joke but oh well.

    And for the record, Leela isn`t a alien (as it says in the article) she is a mutant. Yes i do watch too much TV.

    Oh dude, seriously. I think I may have creamed my pants. Futurama is THE show, if you don`t get the jokes, you need to take a class in humour, and basically an education.

    I only found out the show was canceled while watching season 4 with the commentaries (And even they are funny). I was disheartened, I felt like writing a letter! :-P

    I will be happy with whatever they decide, whether it be another TV season, direct to DVD, OR a movie, I care naught, just as long as they continue to make these works of genius.

    Futurama was and is the best show ever. FOX screwed with Futurama, on the east coast it was almost always either not shown or joined in progress with 5 minutes left due to sports as it aired on Sundays at 7:00pm. If given the cushy slot of 8:30 like the crappy Family Guy, it would be Fox`s top rated show.

    "crappy family guy??" god i hate middleaged people. anyway, futurama was ok but they need to make it a lot less wholesome if they`re going to bring it back. every fu.cking episode ends with bender finding out he has a sensitive side.

    Right... I forgot, 4 = every episode.
    Ok, lets just pretend that they all occured in one season. typically there`s roughly 14 eps per season, that means it occured just over 33% of the time.

    Now that`s if all those episodes happened in the one season, which they didn`t, but even still, 33% is 67% shy of every episode

    AHHH! I hope this is true. I love that show too. My boyfriend just used this quote in his speech about his Nova because this has always been one of our favorites from that show:

    “I`ve never seen a supernova blow up, but if it`s anything like my old Chevy Nova, it`ll light up the night sky"

    I have to say Family Guy is funny, but no comparison to how great Futurama is... Family Guy is just a mindless string of timely references, visual gags, and fart jokes. Futurama has depth (for those of us who appreciate it), and a timeless quality. In 10 years, if you watch the Family guy DVD, half the jokes you`ll have to say "oh yea, that`s when Bush was in office," and such. Futurama is timeless in that it`s beyond our time, has continuing story lines that cross episodes, and it`s just witty! End of story.

    I`m amazed to find out how big Futurama is in Australia, gotta love the brothers and sisters from down-under!

    Futurama, Family Guy, Simpsons - all quality shows. I like Futurama because of its philosophical and political undertones, Groening, the maker of the Simpsons and Futurama, has a degree in philosophy.

    1) Gender-Bender - deals with Womens distrust of transexuals claiming to be women, some Lesbians deny access for Transexuals to "all women events (lesbian events)" because they claim its just another way for men to infringe on their women-hood.

    2) Episode where all robots must be destroyed to prevent global warming. Prof. Farnsworth (represents the USA) angrily refuses to attend the conference, because he knows he is responsible for the problem.

    3) The episode where the monkey gets the intelligence hat, it deals with the tendency of intelligence giving greater powers of perception and thus increases sadness, vs. the arguement that ignorance is bliss. In the end,

    the monkey chooses a life of mediocrity, by keeping the damaged hat and choosing to goto business school, which saddens the Profesor who hoped for greater things.

    Bring it back.

    No one could have put it better. The same argument should also be used as an argument for anyone saying family guy is better than the simpsons. Though it is incredibly obvious that the newer eisodes have gone down hill it still lasted longer than family guy which is losing face after four seasons. Also where can I get the futurama movie? I didn`t even know it exsited. I`m not the biggest fan but I try.

    futurama leaves tons of things unexplained and expects the audience to just find it funny. i know it`s a cartoon set in the future but it would still be a lot funnier if it were a little more realistic (like family guy bichez).

    AWESOME!!!! I`m still baffled as to why is was cancelled in the first place. I have all of Futurama on DVD...I`ve watched the episodes over and over (and over with commentary) and it just rocks! I`m in love with John DiMaggio`s voice!
    I wonder how old cruxshadows was 4 years ago that she didn`t know it was cancelled. I remember watching it on channel Seven in 2000. And I remember signing a petition on the net not to cancel it.

    FRANCESUX:

    You`ve obviously never seen the episode, Spanish Fry. It may not be as OBVIOUS as Family Guy, but there`s certianly no lack of adult jokes in Futurama.

    Secondly, just because Futurama doesn`t feel the need to explain every little tiny thing to the audience like we`re all a bunch of idiots and acknowledges that some of us actually DO have brains unlike so many shows that are out today, doesn`t mean it`s impossible to understand the jokes.

    Thirdly: Apart from the robots and the heads in the jars and the cyclopses and lobster men, Futurama is realistic, at least more so than Family Guy. And has way more of a plot.

    Family Guy has its funny moments and I like it, but it feels more like just a bunch of punch-lines tacked together which then have nothing to do with the rest of the plot. And where Family Guy is half the time hilarious and half the time just stupid or pointless, Futurama is funny the whole way through.

    And when I say realistic what I mean is believable. Believable in the World of Futurama that`s been set up for us, and it`s very consistent. It has great continuity.

    the last episode was actually very touching... it would be interesting to see our Planet Express crew together again.
    What i truly loved about futurama is that, (unfortunately, unlike the simpsons) it is truly timeless. Becouse the episode is set in a completely different time, it takes the essence of earth, and earth in 3000. :P All jokes are funny, and it really gives us something to think about.
    Bring Back Futurama!! (and Firefly while you`re at it. goddamit, that was a genuinely awesome show... daamn them!!)

    I have all 4 seasons and I`ve seen every episode litterally at least 4 times! Futurama is the best show ever they should have never cancelled.
    If anybody finds out Matt Greonings e-mail tell us so we can all tell him how much we love Futurama!!!!!
