My next review for a show will be on Futurama. It is a show from Matt Groening (Simpsons) as well as former veteran writer David X. Cohen (developing the show). Futurama follows the comic exploits of Phillip J. Fry, a pizza delivery boy, who was accidentally cryogenically frozen in 1999, and awakens in the year 3000, finding much has changed, and, yet, is seemingly familiar. Together with an assortment of alien, robot, and human friends, he works for an intergalactic delivery service, Planet Express, run by his descendant nephew, and finds many adventures along the way. What do I think on the science fiction show from the Simpsons creator? I do enjoy it and it is a superb show. However, due to my lack of big knowledge of the science subject, I don't watch it very often. I will do every now and then when I'm bored but the purpose of this show will probably make me smarter than usual. Netflix is my only hope to see the episodes I missed when it first premiere. I don't tune in to Comedy Central very often besides this and South Park. I only tune it on rare occasion. I do remember seeing Futurama on Adult Swim and it is the second show that did so well on reruns that it was revived just like Family Guy. Like that show, it would get boring and old seeing the original 72 episodes over and over again. I liked both of the original and the revival series. They're still the same show in my opinion and never went downhill at all. The creativity of the show is well done and the plots for the episodes are very unique. I liked all the characters here but my favorite would obviously be Bender. He always been a funny character especially his catchphrase and the mischievous stuffs he would do. I don't really want to choose my favorite episodes due to not being a regular viewer compared to 7 years ago. So in conclusion I do enjoy watching Futurama but not very much. I'm not into sci-fi genre very much and I tend to see it when there's nothing to watch. 9/10
Sadly, Futurama is enduring a second cancellation--this time, by Comedy Central. At least that network is giving it a proper farewell. The animation style of Matt Groening's other hit, The Simpsons, is prevalent, as are the storylines, though there is a shorter cast of memorable supporting characters than on The Simpsons. Futurama, along with The Jetsons, will endure the test of time as one of the greatest animation series, even when the show's reruns are viewed in 3000. Who knows what technology will be employed to watch TV during that far in the future...
I have recently started watching this show at night, and i really do enjoy. It is a good comedy show that doesn't have to o with the Fat, lazy dad, and the problems with kids (simpsons, family guy, American dad). This show has very good plots along with very funny jokes, problems that they have to deal with. The only problem about the show that anyone could ever see is that, It is a little bit too far fetched that many people may find stupid or unrealistic. I think this show is better then the Simpsons, not as good as Family Guy, but this is definetly up at the top!
Even though you could say Futurama is more "adult" than The Simpsons, Matt Groening still throws in some of the heart-warming qualities his first cartoon has into this epic, action-comedy-awesome cartoon.
Last season was amazing PLEASE renew this series for another 5 years. Also, the movies were great too. Can you add a few more of them. This is the most clever show I have ever watched. DO NOT LET IT DIE. keep 'em coming.
Futurama is the best show that will ever be on tv. Episode i starts out by having a 25 year old pizza delivery boy who accidently fell into a cryogenic freezer like thing and wakes up in the year 3000 when he meets a cyclops named Leela, a robot named Bender his nephue named proffesor Farnsworth, Dr Zoidburg, I cant really explain him, Amy the intern and Hermes the buracrat.
In other words this is the funniest show of all time. Gotta see it.
In my opinion, Futurama is better than The Simpsons. I'm sorry but this ultimate show is so much funnier and clever how couldn't you agree with me? Futurama is my all time favorite show and I have never hated any part of it. Many fans say that the newer episodes on Comedy Central are horrible, I must say i'm pretty dissapointed. I must admit, the newer episodes of Futurama may not be as sweet as the older episodes, and they do seem less clever, but overall they're really enjoyable and funny. Futurama finds a way to be completely hilarious yet find a way to be sweet and heartwarming at some parts, which is a rare element in cartoons. Every single character is either funny or enjoyable, two main figures being Bender and Zoidberg who you can watch on the TV forever without getting sick of them. It's a mix of "The Jetsons" and "The Simpsons" and it's grand!
Futurama is an amazing show! It's a really funny show and it even made me cry once.. Leela meeting her parents was so sweet.. and her parents giving her up was so sad.Also even though Fry and Yancy fought.. Yancy named his own kid Fry :) so sweet.. Sadly Fox Canceled the show, but luckily Comedy Central saved it! And guess what? The new episodes may not be great, but their still good. Just look at "Cold Warriors", "The Tip of The Zoidberg" , "The Late Phiillip J Fry" and more. This show is more better than The Simpsons even.
I'm definitely an adult cartoon watcher, like family guy and south park and stuff, but i really love that this show has the capability to be super funny and appropriately serious. Like i love the episode where Lela finds out who her parents are, isn't the end of that episode where they show how her mutant parents have always been there looking out for her sweet? Things like that is what really makes me love this show. And i like how the relationships in this show are just real, like Lela and Fry, he just loves her so much, sure he thinks she is hot but i love how his love is just so unconditional and that she is finally giving him a chance in these newer episodes. Also i like how Amy loves Kif so much even though she is rich and could be considered hot she still loves him anyway because of his personality. This show is just a great mix of funny and heartwarming moments and i just love it!
Plot: Philip J Fry, a pizza boy with a terrible life. Was frozen accidentally by December 31, 1999, and he was unfrozen in the 3rd millennium. There he sees the futuristic life and beings. He met a cyclops woman named Leela, an aggressive robot named Bender. He also met his future nephew, Prof. Farnsworth. His life was more lighter from there. But still, he encounters a lot of strange and bizarre events in that timeline!
Characters: They are unique when it comes to their personalities. They also have their own small back stories. Voice acting and dialogue is perfect. And each characters has their own hilarity.
Humor: Well planned and executed. Each jokes gets unique and different from episodes.
Art: Matt Groening did it good again. They're all fine.
Overall: 10. One of the most perfect cartoon sitcoms.
I love this show as do many others. 3 specials and a return to television speaks for itself really. The characters and stories are a good break from the usual prime time adult cartoons that play for now.
I really enjoy this as an alternative to the Simpsons and in many cases I will choose this over the Simpsons. Well worth watching and enjoying.
This was one of my favorite prime time shows and i absolutely enjoy its stupidity and plot lines. Matt Groeing showed us through this series that he wasnt just a one show man but that he could do 2 awesome shows. they obviously need to bring it back because when the Simpsons and Family Guy get the boot, FOX will be on very very thin ice. I know Groeing is a busy man, but he balanced between two shows between 1999 and 2003, why cant he now. Fox, you have made a deadly mistake. You must bring it back. Now.
When I first saw this show not too long ago, I thought it was the funniest thing I had ever seen! I remember those times when it used to be on Fox, and me and my dad would put it on and laugh away! But I don't think it comes on Fox anymore, but it still comes on on Adult Swim! Rite from the start, I knoew this would be a great, funny, and hilarious show, because it was created by Matt Groening himself; the famed creator of The Simpsons! I remember most of the characters on the show, including Fry, Leela, Bender, Amy, Hermes Conrad, Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, Kif Kroker, and Zapp Brannigan. I am soooooooo glad this show will get another season!! I was hoping for this moment!! This show is one of the coolest and funniest shows ever! It deserves a 10 out of 10! Thank you again, Matt Groening!
This show has a lot of the same humour of The Simpsons without the preachy undertones.
As cartoons have become more a fixture of modern TV, most shows have opted to try and be outlandish and offensive (South Park, Family Guy, American Dad, etc.) or else they try to be moralistic (Simpsons, King of the Hill). Futurama is just a series of fantastical events involving pitiful characters and scenarios so absurd they really utilize the cartoon format.
Kudos to Groening for creating such a fun universe and characters and I pray it never devolves into making current events episodes. They never age well.
Futurama is by faar one of the best shows comedy central by far.......it did get canceled and i do think the old ones(season1-4) were better but iam real in joying the newer episodes and i think that FOX should have never canceleded cause it was a hit and i was so glad that it got picked up by Comedy Central and since it is on comedy central now they can say and do more stuff then on FOX so they are trying to make it edgey which i don't really like but it is still old futurama humor.So it's good
this is problably the only cartoon show that has been funny throughout the decade. other cartoon shows like Spongebob and Family Guy have nowadays lost their charm and arent as funy as they use to be. But futurama has the wittennes and srill more than enough character dynamic. Honestly, y not zoidberg
The way I see it is Family Guy has turned itself into an unwatchable show that is more recycled than computer paper. This is Family Guy (aids joke, gay joke,cut-away,aids joke,cutaway,and meaningless situations). Although the plot on Futurama may not always make sense at least it stuck to it's roots and doesn't throw out jokes that make you uncomfortable to watch. Bender is an awesome character and one I highly doubt I'll forget well into my years of alzheimers, Fry is dimwittedly funny like the way Homer Simpson would make you laugh (without the spousal-kid abuse). Futurama is just one of those shows that grows on you and I think comedy central did a good thing for themselves and the viewers picking it up and putting it in a decent time slot. Ive watched Futurama since it came out and I'd have to say this is by far my favorite rainy day tv show. Im happy to hear that there picked up for another 23 or 26 episodes because if I have to literally judge the animated tv shows that have been on since my adolescence with another family guy episode i'm going to get surgery to be blind and deaf. I love cartoons and honestly the only good ones left are Futurama, American Dad, South Park, Ugly Americans and the way I see it the more the merrier as long as it's not complete crap. So Futurama definitely deserves 10 for making me laugh and not making me feel compelled to turn the channel when it's on.
Okay! The reasons why I have this show down as mediocre are two-fold. First of all: The show had a pretty bad start. In fact, the second episode was quite embarrassing to watch! Secondly, even though this show had a few good and funny moments (And mind you, I am saying 'moments' instead of episodes), it had a tendency to place rather bad jokes into its episodes or dumb plots. However, it didn't fail quite as badly as King of the Hill. Therefore, I will wrap up this review by saying that if this show ever made a comeback, it had better start making funnier and more wholesome episodes. And by this, I mean episodes that I actually find funny and not just stupid. Fin.
This show is very awesome and funny as well it was a great show i liked the antics of Fry Leela and Bender,Bender was the funniest character of all Fry can be funny at times as well Man these were the days i have really good memories of this show and even better it's coming back in 2008(it's moving to Comedy Central) i just can't wait but i wonder why Fox had to cancel it oh well this was a great show the first episode was the best and this show is even better than The Simpsons.
What can I say?... this cartoon is awesome and absolutely hilarious at the same time. I enjoyed most of the episodes in this show and the humor is absolutely hilarious. Matt Groening (who also is the creator of "The Simpsons") not only makes awesome and great humor in the "The Simpsons" but he also does adds awesome and great humor in "Futurama" as well. I don't know which show is better? "The Simpsons" or "Futurama" because I honestly love both cartoons equally. "The Simpsons" and "Futurama" are both hilarious in different ways. "The Simpsons" is hilarious because the things they do is stupid. "Futurama" is hilarious because the thing they do are brilliant in a very funny way... sometimes it does have hilarious dumb humor but that's what makes it fun. My favorite character in this show is Bender. Bender is a robot who drinks alcohol and smokes alot which makes him hilarious and I find it brilliant. Come on, how often do you see a robot that drinks and smokes? That's why I love Bender the robot who drinks and smokes alot. Professor Farnsworth is my other favorite character as well because he says the wackiest things that somehow make me laugh so hard. Bender and Professor Farnsworth are my favorite characters in "Futurama". As for the other characters, they aren't as funny as Bender and Professor but they're good characters. The other characters in this show are Phillip J. Fry, Leela, Dr. Zoidberg, Amy Wong, and more. Overall, "Futurama" is just a hilarious and awesome cartoon to watch... it's too bad that Adult Swim doesn't air the reruns anymore but I can still watch the reruns on Comedy Central now... If you love "The Simpsons", you just might love "Futurama" as well. 10/10
i've always watched this show on and off. but i've really starting getting into it and i'm glad i am. bcuz truthfully every episode no matter how bad i can say i laughed or giggled. cuz this show knows how to make anyone laugh or giggle to laugh out loud. this show has made me to all of that. and i haven't watched all of the epiosdes sadly. cuz like i said i'm kind of a new fan. but glad to be one. hope the show will continue to go strong. sometimes it even better the simpsons. and i've watched a lot of the simpsons episodes new and old. go futurama take south park and family guy down!!!!!
