  • Futurama is back!

    http://www.tvsquad.com/2007/11/26/da...uad-interview/

    Just like when FOX initially killed The Family Guy, the fans rallied long enough to bring it back.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the primary reason Futurama got cancelled was because Groening didn't want to do it anymore?

    Regardless, only good things can come from this.

      Re: Futurama is back!

      The original dust up iirc, was that FOX felt Groening was spending too much time on Futurama (lower ratings) instead of the Simpsons (cash cow). So much was spewed at the time, I have no real idea what happened. All I really know is that my favorite cartoon got the axe.

      Now I'm stoked to have new Futurama material no matter how long it lasts.

          Hopefully it won't be like Family Guy and will be funny when it returns.

            I'd have to disagree, I find Family Guy to be just as funny since it's return, last night's episode was excellent. (11/25)

                  I hate family guy. Just a bunch of random idiotic jokes that dont pertain to anything at all.

                  Futurama is the shiznit though. Im excited.

                    I'm not normally a fan of no-brain humor, but Family Guy does it for me.

                    Futurama is in a whole 'nother class. Its like an older cartoon that while its perfectly fine to let your children watch it (and get alot of enjoyment out of it) there are so many well crafted adult references that make it great to watch as an adult.

                      well said right there... I totally agree. I am super excited were getting new material :D .. and about the random pointless jokes.. Im pretty sure the reason its been amped up since the show started is because that is probably the biggest complaint from people who dont like the show lol.. I think its hilarious... thats the beauty of random jokes... they are random ! they are free to take a shot at anyone or anything at any given moment!! classic!:row__642:

                        Here is the difference.

                        Family Guy I laugh.

                        Futurama I laugh and smile.

                              I prefer Family Guy to Futurama. Futurama had to grow on me a bit.

                              I don't watch the new episodes of Family Guy though. The only "adult" comedy cartoon I watch at this point is The Boondocks.

                              Best one out there anyway.
