  • Have to watch!!

    This show is OK. I love it. It just what I need when I get home from a bad day at work. It’s entertaining full of laughs and makes me want to never move again. It really captures the free spirit of media and keeps you wanting and guessing for more. It’s the kind of show that you don’t need to constantly watch in order to get the whole spectrum of what’s going on, I really like that, that way you can do multiple things at once. If you feel like it that is. This is defiantly one of my favorite shows.
  • I hope the future is like this!

    What can i say about Futurama?

    its a show about a guy named fry who is cryogenically frozen and wakes up in the future. at first he has trouble adjusting but after meeting his elderly relative, a rude yet sociable robot and a hot woman with one eye, fry is soon flying across the galaxy with many hilarious adventures.

    i love futurama and i am glad it is coming back. this show, along with The Simpsons, is the best thing Matt Groening has ever done. its funny and heartwarming at the same time!

    So hurry up 2008 - i want to see more!
  • An amazing show, that should NOT of been canceled.

    I was having a look over my reviews to see if I had missed any out, and then suddenly I realized....I FORGOT FUTURAMA!
    In some ways this show is better than The Simpsons, but right here is point where I stop comparing. Season 4 is my personal favourite, as it has 'Jurassic Bark' and outstanding and powerful episode, which reaches a emotion that I thought unreachable in cartoons. That episode alone was the reason I bought Season 4 on DVD..but enough about that, and more about the show. This show has such likable characters, my favourite being Hubert Farnsworth, voiced by the great Billy West. This show is very clever, as well as the animation which is incredibly detailed. The ending of this show was a huge mistake (not the final episode, the final episode is one of the greatest Futurama has to offer). This show should of at least reached ten seasons like South Park or The Simpsons.
  • ehh...it was OK but...

    Futurama was an okay show, it could of had done a little better, There were a few episodes that made me laugh but still in a way I'm a bit scared of the year 3000 thanks to them...even though there's a small chance that would happen.

    In conclusion, the show made me laugh here and there but there were times that it was just bland.
  • setting

    Futurama's setting is first and foremost a backdrop, and the writers are not above committing continuity errors if they serve to further the gags. For example, while one episode stated global warming was canceled out by nuclear winter, another episode was built on the premise of continuing global warming. The world of tomorrow is used to highlight and lampoon issues of today, and to parody the science fiction genre.

    Futurama is set at the beginning of the 31st century, in a time filled with technological wonders. Various devices and architecture are similiar to the Populuxe design. Global warming, inflexible bureaucracy, and substance abuse are a few of the subjects given a 31st century exaggeration in a world where the problems have become both more extreme and more common. In a jab at segregation, for example, the show depicts the human prejudice against mutants as being so great that the latter have been forced to live underground in the sewers. The characters' home on Earth is the city of New New York, built over the ruins of present-day New York City, referred to as "Old New York".

    Numerous technological advances have been made by the 31st century. The ability to keep heads alive in jars was invented by Ron Popeil (who has a guest cameo in "A Big Piece of Garbage"), and has resulted in many political figures and celebrities being active; this became the writers' excuse to feature and poke fun at celebrities in the show. Curiously, several of the preserved heads shown are those of people who were already dead well before the advent of this technology, the most prominent example of this anomaly being George Washington, who died in 1799. The Internet, while being fully immersive and encompassing all senses and seeming to feature its own digital world (similar to Tron or The Matrix), is slow and consists mostly of pornography, pop-up ads, and "filthy" chat rooms, though some of it is edited to include educational material ostensibly for youth. Television is a primary form of entertainment, though it's now of a higher resolution than real life. Robots powered by either alcohol or mineral oil are commonplace, and most have free will and emotions. The wheel is obsolete, having been forgotten and replaced by hovering vehicles and transportation tubes; these are reminiscent of old-style pneumatic tubes. At one point Fry builds a carriage employing wheels, albeit malformed and none of the other characters recognize the wheels - although Leela suggests that they would work better if they were round.[3]

    [edit] Galactic politics Earthican flag, "Old Freebie" The Democratic Order Of Planets logoEarth has a unified government, headed by the President of Earth (from season 2 onwards being Richard Nixon's Head). Earth's capital is Washington, D.C. and the flag of Earth looks similar to the flag of the United States, only with planet Earth displayed in place of the fifty stars. Citizens of Earth are referred to as Earthicans.

    The Democratic Order Of Planets (D.O.O.P.) is the fictional organization in the Futurama universe which has been compared to both the United Nations and to the United Federation of Planets of the Star Trek universe. It includes Earth and many other worlds, though Earth sometimes acts unilaterally without the aid of other D.O.O.P. members. Omicron Persei VIII is frequently engaged in conflicts with the D.O.O.P.

    Numerous other galaxies have been colonized or have made contact by the year 3000. All of the Solar System now operates under the Earth government's sphere of influence. Mars has been terraformed, and is home to Mars University. The Western Hemisphere of Mars is owned by the Wong family
  • This show is very funny and creative.

    This show, Futurama, is a very funny show. I love this show sooo much. Its a different show. Its better than family guy, american dad, and south park. its very creative too. i love how they have like all the future gadgets and they go into space. it also makes fun of our time like how "old new york" is in the sewers. it is a cool show. i can't wait until the movie comes out. I want to see it. i hope the somehow they can make new episodes of futurama or atleast air it more on tv. Futurama ROCKS!
  • My God can someone get this back please?

    I was just reading someone talking about TV shows that went on too long and then they said they favour shows like Futurama which got cancelled early on so they didn't overdoo it. WHAT! I never even knew it'd ended! They still play the repeats over here and as I don't watch it religiously I'd never even known it was gone. Then I came of here and saw that it'd ended 4 years ago in 2003. I'm shocked and confused. I'm sure they never announced this in England. This, along with simpsons is a briliant show which could go on and on and on....

    So sad...
  • Like it says BRING IT BACK! I like it better than the Simpsons!

    Bring it back! It was even better than the Simpsons. I have not seen all of the eps. yet, but I would still like to see what they could cook up for Futurama For years to come. Imagine what they could make for it today! They practically MUST bring it BACK! And... uh, stuff. Why'd they stop, anyways? We should... We should get them to bring it back by pop ular demand! Make a ptition! It is perfect! Who is with me on this one? If you are, please agree with me. I'll make a forum post potition! It's Brillaint!
  • From the creative genius who brought us The Simpsons!

    Futurama is a clever and hysterically funny show. I miss it! I watch the DVDs over and over again and pray that it's brought back. After working hard all week, it's a great way to unwind on the weekend with family. Fry and Bender are always a wonderful escape from reality as is watching all of the animated shows - Family Guy, The Simpsons, and American Dad. Bring this one back!!!!
  • Fry gets frozen on New Year's 1999 waking up New Year's Day 3000. He quickly becomes friends with Bender and all the Planet Express Employs. Fry, Leela and Bender are usually sent on deliveries to other planets where an issue arrives.

    I love futurama. This is my absolute favorite show. My favorite character is Zoidberg because i love how he acts and his love for food is hilarious. Also, his inability to tell much about humans and that he knows nothing about humans but still is allowed to operate on them usually Fry. Fry is great because he is always so clueless about the future and usually has to ask usually ending in Professor Farnsworth saying it was either burnt, went extinct or was discontinued about 4 or 5 years prior. Futurama is an excellent show and was renewed for 16 episodes in 2008 on Comedy Central.
  • Set in the year 3000, New New York.

    Set in the year 3000, New New York. Fry a dilervery boy from the 20th century gets frozen for 1000 years. Where he meets an alcholic robot Bender, a one eyed cyclops Leela, and met his great (1000xs) nephew. Theres also Hermes, Amy, Dr. Zoidburg and some others. I love the Fry Leela romance scenes cause it's so cute. I wish this show was never cancelled but I still watch it anyways. I also like Bender cause hes cool. This show makes me laught more than Family Guy. It's my favorite cartoon. It also has some depth so it's not just a big joke. Who ever though of this is a genius!
  • Because it is awesome!But I at least want FOX to renew this show and at least get a 200th Episode.

    "Fry"got frozen for 1000 years and did NOT die.When Fry wakes up he notices the world is different and plus got a new buddy by the name of "Bender"Bender is his roomate he does alot of jobs for "Fry".Then,He meets Leela a one-eyed monster.So,Basiclly it is in it's 3000"s.Please watch this.
  • First time winner!

    I hope this show lasts up to yar 3,000 if not then it at . least had some funny episodes ! i think this show has some pretty good violence. but a dumb mistake was Zap Branagan and Kiff !!! they practicly ruins the whole show!!! but without Kiff the funny show where the beetle ranch episode wouldnt be very funny. . . well in the show my favorite episode was the one where they head int the bee hive to gather royal honey. its funny because when lela was in the comma she practicly killed herself with reality and dreams. well you should watch this show!
  • What the???

    Ok, so it's about this dude named Fry, who delivers pizza? What kind of name is Fry?? Pizza places don't even serve fries! And that's just ONE flaw! These alien guys (and one girl, who's REALLY ugly!) who live in the future? Please! I'd rather watch the backyardigans than this show. THE BACKYARDIGANS!! One of the WORST shows ever! I'm sorry for all of you people who watch this show, but I can't. I just can't. It's WAY too horrible! I could name a ton of other shows better than this one, like Kim Possible, Danny Phantom, Yin Yang Yo, Growing up Creepie, and SO much more! This show just belongs on the "Shows that came out a long time ago and have already failed" list.

  • Love it!

    One of my favorite comedy shows out there. It is just so funny and brilliant in most episodes. All the characters have their own personality and they all clash together perfectly. I look forward to the new episodes they will be making. I watched it onn Adult Swim a couple times and just fell in love with it. I'm glad it came into my life, because it's just so fun to watch! Go Comedy Central with adopting it and getting the new episodes, i'll be there to watch them. But like I said, just a great funny show! I love it!
  • Its better than "The Simpsons"

    Don't get me wrong, I like the Simpsons, but there is just something about Futurama that I like more. It irks me to see people who hate this show and are glad it is canceled. If you don't like a show just don't watch it...to many shows have gotten a premature axe these days mainly cause television networks haven't realized no show is going to have the ratings of shows from the past. I am sure to all those who hated the show, there have been shows you liked that have been canceled as well. This one about a pizza boy frozen and waking up in the future was for me quite enjoyable. Which is the kiss of death right there, because if I like a show, it usually does get canceled and it usually does have a pretty good following, but for some reason the networks still somehow think all shows should average 20 or more million viewers or its a failure.
  • they need to put futurama back on the air for good

    they need to put futurama back on the air for good and take the simpsons off the air for one the simpsons were funny but these last few were not funny at all but futurama has been funny every time i watch it! i'm happy with comdey centry for bringing 13 new but fox needs to bring it back for good but i sill watch the dvds and on tbs and adult swim! heres a good futurama site http://www.gotfuturama.com/ Futurama is the best comdy on tv so please bring it back! hopfuly when they go to comedy centry they will stay
  • Funny show, but has some reasons for being unappreciated.

    I never really knew about this show until one day when I was waiting to watch Family Guy and had to wait for "Futurama" finish. I was really glad I liked Family Guy because this show is great if you're bored. Many people however don't give this show a chance. But others like me just give up on it. Let's face it, it's an okay show but the competition is just much better. I mean you got Family Guy, American Dad, and Simpsons to get over before watching this. But even so I always seem to end up watching Futurama before going to sleep or something becasue funny cartoons with idiots as the main character are classic and usually funny.
  • You Have to Love it

    Ok, You have to love or like futurama! I do and i think you should too. Futurama may have ended and will come back (2008 On comedy Central). The whole story is Smart, and creative. The characters are Even Better!! Fry is my favorite following by Bender, Leila! Ok so you may not like it but Lots of people miss it (I sure Do) I started watching in 2005 and since then thanks to Adult swim i've seen pretty much every episode! I give this show a 10 out of 10. Futurama Will Live on for years to come! w00t!
  • very funny story about a guy who accidentaly got transported to the future, and a whole new adventure begins

    This is an average show, but I also enjoyed watching this. The show is done quite well. The plot is quite interesting. I am also quite interested in the main characters. They go quite a bit of my attention. What I can say about this show is just that it is very superb in terms of giving the viewers enjoyment as long as they give much attention to it. It can be worth your time, just don’t get bored at first. Later, you will see that this show can be great indeed. Just have patience. I am not saying this show is boring. It can be fun.
  • One of my all-time favorites!

    Futurama has to be one of the best shows that Adult Swim has ever aired period! What was Fox thinking when they dropped this show. Futurama has some of the best characters that I have ever seen! I just can't wait till new episode air on Comedy Central in 2008!!! My favorite character has to be Bender. Well what can I say Bender is most likely everybody's favorite character in Futurama. I love the way he jokes,and he steals too! But of course You wouldn't expect less from the creator's of the longest running series "the Simpsons." I have been watching this show every night on Adult Swim for about 4 years now, and I have to say that I never get sick of watching this show,and again I just can't wait till the new episodes air on Comedy Central!!!
  • Too smart for FOX. All hail Comedy Central

    FOX has the worst record when it comes to canceling series that shouldn't be canceled. Arrested Development, The PJ's, The Lone Gunman, and of course Futurama. Sometimes it looks like the programming department is trying to torpedo the network. It's truly surprising that the Simpsons have made it 18 years and that Family Guy got a second chance.

    Futurama was and will again be one of the funniest and smartest shows on TV. Thank God that Comedy Central got them back on the air.

    Since this is a review, here goes. This show is one of the few to get the TV hat trick. Perfect cast, perfect writing, perfect direction. Canceling this show was an even bigger mistake than canceling Family Guy. Nuff Said.

    All Hail Comedy Central!!!!!
  • cool.

    A totaly origanal idea that was awsome i think this is ten maybe twenty times better then the simpsons. Futurama is a good old fashion time traveling tale about a guy who went into the year 3000 and met some new friends. it is funny how fast the main charecter gets the hang of the future and how he is in the year 300 and is still lazy.

    although i like them and they are relative to the storyline of the show the episodes about the main charecters past have angered many people i know.

    in conclusion i like the show and think it should go on for many more years.
  • Great show.

    This show is a great one and I really enjoyed watching it because it looked funny especially characters like Bender that is a robot and he looks funny in his actions. Also other characters like Fry that got frozen for 1,000 years and was sent to the future during that time. He is a great character and the main character of the series and he's a cool character in my opinion. Also there is Leela that she is a cyclops.

    Also this show has many good episodes about the future. Another thing that makes this show a good one is that is from the same creators of The Simpsons and that makes it even beter in my opinion. In conclusion for being a great show I give it a 8.7 great rating for my review.
  • i love comedy central for bringing this back!!!!!

    so its official Fox (who in my eyes cant tell a good show from a bad one) have sold the rights to comedy central who are now producing 13-16 more NEW episode... this is why fox are constantly shooting themselves in the foot all they need to do is actually watch the program's they make (rather than go by viewing figures) and then they could see what is good and what actually deserves to be cancelled.

    thats my rant done about fox, lets get down to the show...

    it has it all love intrests, the will they-wont they, between fry and lelia is one of the best i've seen, most shows either answer it in the first couple of seasons (superman lois and clarke) or string it out too much till the very last episode of their ten season (friends, ross and rachel) but half the time in futurama it becomes more than about them getting it together and you forget about it

    then there's zoidberg and Bender two of the most fantastic characters in tv history- both are funny and march to the beat of their own drum.

    even the supporting cast of the janitor, the professor, zap, and Hermes are funny with their own p.o.v of life-

    in short watch this show because who knows it might actually be the future???? like i say who knows

    i love comedy central - they rule my world
  • Hilarious and original...ohhh it's made by FOX, if it's good it must be cancelled

    Yes,I don't get the FOX decisions regarding Futurama, they don't learn from past lessons, an exemple would be Family Guy. I don't know, maybe even I don't care, about marketing,budget issues that left to Futurama be cannceld, all I know is that I'm watching..err...re-watching for the xyz-time the dvd's or the re-runs, and I never get bored!!!! Let's be honest, like Matt Groening said, it's a show for those who love S.F. shows and also for those who hates S.F. shows. It had good potential, and didn't had to stick to the old routine of parodying blockbuster movies (like South park for a couple of episodes) I cand hardly wait to see what Comedy Central has done to this show, till then ....
  • This program is ahead of its time. Well obviously! When Fry, a pizza delivery boy from present time, gets frozen for 1000 years, he wakes up to find a crazy new world!

    In this new world there are smart robots, suicide booths, strange pipe things that take you to places, spaceships/hovering cars for vehicles and a person that he meets first: with one eye! This cute one-eyed girl is Leela, and Fry falls in love and trys to get her to do the same in many episodes, but always fails. In the year 3000 he also meets Bender, a robot he found in a suicide booth but Fry stopped him, The Professor (If I remember correctly, he is Fry's only remaining relative), Amy, Nibbler and just about everybody else you will ever see in the show.

    As this show is created by Matt Greoning (or however you spell his name), creator of the Simpsons, the humour is added in too. So overall its a great futuristic show! :D
  • It's a show.

    this show is so funny its like Family Guy abd American Dad but in the future. i aslo think that they should have had fry and lela have a child together because everyone knows the both like each other or they should have did like a sad ending were fry goes back to his time just to see wat would happen to everyone ese when he left. Or maybe they sheould have Bender get an up grade like where he has cup holders to put his beer and have a ash try for his ciggars. I totally love this show!
