    If there was a season 8, what kind of episodes would there be that you can think of? Here's some I came up with. Hopefully others will join:



    All In Or Nothing:


    Say, since Futurama did some sports-themed episodes like baseball, basketball, and even curling in a comic book, why not soccer?


    Planet Express is in debt and on the verge of foreclosure. If that isn't bad enough that our heroes are on the brink of going to the unemployment line, some aliens from the planet Striker challange Earth to a soccer match. The soccer playing aliens challange the Planet Express Crew. Farnsworth makes a robotic soccer team and the aliens from Striker beat the robot team. Then Fry, Leela, Bender, Hermes, Amy, Scruffy, and Zoidberg form into a soccer team. The aliens tell them if the PE Crew wins, they will win a whole bunch of money to save Planet Express from forecloure, if the aliens win, the planet Striker will shame Earth in soccer forever. The Planet Express crew all end up competing against the aliens from Striker in the 3014 Fifa Universe Cup! (Let's face it, Futurama should've done a World Cup themed episode. Lord knows The Simpsons have done one)



    How about another episode with the Slurm Worms?



    Fuel On The Hill:



    Farnsworth is making some rocket fuel. He needs one more ingredient for it to make it complete. Once he gets the key ingredient, he falls asleep and starts to sleepwalk. Then Farnsworth unwittingly walks into a Wormulon colony where the Slurm Worms live and mistakenly takes some new Slurm called Moon Rock Berry and puts the rocket fuel in with the Slurm Worms. The next day at Madison Cuber Garden, the Slurm Worms announce a new flavor of Moon Rock Berry Slurm on the news. Linda and Morbo are on the scene to report it and the spectators drink the Slurm and they all die of stomach explosions. Fry, Bender, Leela, Hermes, Amy, and Zoidberg are all watching this on TV when Farnsworth annouces his new rocket fuel. He opens the vial and it everyone discovers it smells like the new Slurm. The Slurm Worms find out that it was Farnsworth who unwittingly switched the new Slurm for rocket fuel. Then the Slurm Worms break into Planet Express, and capture everyone (even Leela, too) and take them back to Wormulon. Once they all arrive on Wormulon, Bender, Leela, Hermes, Amy, and Zoidberg all get locked in an attic and are marked for execution while Farnsworth and Fry are taken into a laboratory forced to make Moon Rock Berry Slurm and the rocket fuel. Fry gets mistaken for Farnsworth's assisant so they interrogate him about the ingredients to the rocket fuel, but Fry doesn't know nothing about science. The Slurm Worms want Farnsworth's rocket fuel so the Slurm Worm can build bomb with it to destroy Earth! How will the Planet Express crew escape from this one?

    Really? Nobody?

    They're all marked for execution was what I forgot to say. Even Fry and Farnsworth are. How did everyone like this ideas?

    Maybe someone can think of a new creative campaign to get the show back on the air on a decent loyal channel this time?

    Also great effort and great stuff for story ideas.

    With all the hype and hoopla about sharks lately, if Futurama had a season 8, they could've done this:

    A Sharknado episode! Based on the movies! With Bender was Ian Zierling of course!
