1 Loved the original run of this show. It is classic, with funny writing, great character chemistry and inventive plots. But I have to agree with (). The movies were disappointingly unfunny, and the new episodes have lacked the humor and heart of the first go. It just seems forced, the humor and writing are not on par. I have watched entire episodes and maybe smirked twice. Not good. Now that this show has been cancelled by Comedy Central, I am sad to say that I am not upset, but relieved. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 5:04 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Too much gross, cutesy or pathetic humor. That stuff works in small doses. Not as a life stlye. Similar to the Tim and Eric show, the recurring joke in Futurama is that "everything is all messed up." The stories often have a clumsly feel to them. Once in a while a good episode. The Simpsons in its heyday (first few seasons) rolled up and smoked all of Futurama. -- Submitted By: (ExTVLover) on May 23, 2013, 12:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 One of the funniest (and truest!) Simpsons quotes. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 19, 2012, 12:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Robert, a little old quote from The Simpsons for you. Okay, maybe my dad did steal Itchy. But SO what? Animation is built on plagiarism. If it weren't for someone plagiarizing The Honeymooners we wouldn't have the Flintstones. If someone hadn't ripped off Sergeant Bilko, there'd be no Top Cat. Huckleberry Hound, Chief Wiggum, Yogi Bear, hah! Andy Griffith, Edward G. Robinson, Art Carney. Your Honor, you take away our right to steal ideas, where are they gonna come from, her? -- Submitted By: (Jp) on February 16, 2012, 10:44 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Sadly, it seems EVERY animated show out there follows the Simpsons' formula: replacing plots with zany gags, characters that get dumber each season, etc. Even Spongebob followed this formula; compare older episodes to newer ones and you'll see it for yourself. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 15, 2012, 9:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I have to agree with Robert. I was a huge Futurama fan when it first aired and threw a tantrum when it was unceremoniously cancelled. When I heard they were bringing it back I literally jumped for joy-until I saw it. First the disappointing movies. And when they announced the series was returning, I had hope it would return to the greatness of the original. Alas, as the second season of new Futurama (officially season 7) drones on, I am still disappointed. The writing has taken a down turn. The characters are becoming Simpsonized- losing their humanity in favor of gags. The clever, off-the-wall humor of the first airings has been replaced with "the more obnoxious the better" type of thinking. The characters says fewer surprisingly funny lines, instead, spew tired insults too constantly. And everyone is becoming Homerized- much stupider season after season. The episode The Duh-Vinci Code was especially awful, like Hawking trying to write slapstick. The only episode so far that somewhat reminded me of the originals was Neutopia. Clever, bizarre, and sometimes laugh-out loud funny. I still have hope for a better, more consistent season. -- Submitted By: () on February 14, 2012, 10:03 pm - (6 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I can't really say that this show boned, although I still like the older Fox episodes more than the DVD movies and Comedy Central episodes. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on August 3, 2010, 8:08 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I can't say this show ever BTF, I can say the first three seasons were the best. They must haved changed writers, directors or something for the fourth season because the story plots and writing was that same. Even the direct-to-DVD movie's and the new episodes don't have that wit and freshness that the first three season's had. -- Submitted By: (workstoomuch) on July 24, 2010, 1:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Futurama never boned, IMO - if anything, it was Fox that boned by putting Futurama in a time slot where it was bound to be preempted by a football game going into overtime or they just HAD to show the stupid game "highlights" reel for the 7,833,215th time. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on April 24, 2010, 10:28 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

11 Futurama was great. It was a nice show that mixed sci-fi with sitcom and the characters were all likeable. Then it was cancelled. The newer episodes aren't as impressive as the old ones. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 1, 2010, 12:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 The worst-the absolute worst episode of Futurama is far superior the the BEST show of Family Guy. -- Submitted By: (syzygy) on February 28, 2010, 4:20 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
13 The second DVD movie "The Beast with a Billion Backs" was definitely the low point of the series. I think the big misstep with the straight-to-DVD movies was that they were created in a way that they could later be split into 22 minute episodes, which led to some pretty jarring shifts and uneven plots. Hopefully with the upcoming season of "normal" episodes Cohen and Groening can get back to what they do best. -- Submitted By: (SmoothT) on November 4, 2009, 6:33 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 The show semi-boned with the movies-broken-into-episodes ordeal, although the movies were great (except the third). However, it's dis-semi-boned itself by being renewed. -- Submitted By: (rlargent) on October 25, 2009, 9:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 The real shame is that this show was not more successful. If only it would have been and Groening would have canceled the Simpsons for this one. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 20, 2009, 9:37 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Futurama is a superior comedy with a strong, colorful cast of characters that is a lot more tightly focused than the huge Simpsons cast. I think its irreverent humor carves out the niche that Family Guy should have had but then started trying to be something else. I think Futurama's comedy is smart and witty without ever being too high-brow or inaccessible. It was a travesty when it was cancelled and Bender's Big Score showed everyone how good their narratives could be when given the chance. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on July 24, 2009, 4:00 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

18 Some people are saying that the recasting announcement is a negotiating tactic to scare the original actors into working cheaper. I think we should all send in intentionally crappy impersonations of the Futurama characters to FUTURAMA@SCOTTMULLERCASTING.COM just to discourage FOX. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 18, 2009, 11:36 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 http://www.crunchgear.com/2009/07/17/fox-is-recasting-futurama/ Virtually the whole damned show is being recast. So I think it's safe to say this show is done. I'm saying it now, it's dead Jim. Even the fillet was raped... -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on July 18, 2009, 6:21 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
20 Yes they will be back. I wonder how the ratings will be. -- Submitted By: (kitchenbreak) on June 13, 2009, 4:20 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
