    The Cartoon Network has started airing Futurama...and I had no idea how great this show was/is. I'm hooked now. Any other fans?

    It was good for a few episodes, but then it just became tiresome. It ain't no "Simpsons"!

    I've caught about 5 episodes so far. The "Mad scientist" dude has me rolling every time he speaks. Plus it sounds like Billy West is voicing a couple characters. Dat's allways a good thing!

    THis show shows flashes of brilliance at times but it is mostly mediocre IMO
    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

    I watched it for a couple of years hoping it would eventually improve and find its "niche"...it never did IMO. It's nowhere near as funny or clever or original as The Simpsons.

    One of the negative aspects of the show is that it frequently takes one joke (which normally would be funny as, well, one joke or even one scene or minor subplot) and builds an entire show around it, beating it to death. You're tired of it 10 minutes into the show.

    I agree with FH...Bender is the only halfway decent character. Somebody no the show a favor and cancel it immediately.

    Actually, I disagree with everyone so far who says that Futurama wasn't (anyone who doesn't know, the episodes this season are NOT new, just left over from last season... Futurama is DOA) as clever as the Simpsons. Have you watched recent seasons of the Simpsons????? Talk about unimaginative.... Now, I agree, Futurama doesn't come even close if you are talking about seasons 1 - 8 or 9 or so. Maybe early Simpsons just are in a class by themselves....

    I was surprised they pulled the plug on Futurama, but, they did the same thing to Family Guy....

    I just realized this post doesn't completely make sense... it's too early for me to be thinking. [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img]

    As a die-hard Simpsons' fan, I even think it's gotten tired over the years. I rarely bother to watch any of the new seasons anymore, I'd prefer to watch some of the classic-reruns over and over again.
