The best cartoon series on TV ever
I loved Futurama when it was TV and I always find myself watching it on my DVD player ( I have all 4 series ). I think the thing that carries it above other cartoons ( and it's not like I don't like the Simpsons or Family Guy ) is the wonderful mix of characters. Dimwitted Phillip J. Fry, who has trouble constructing a coherent sentence and whenever he attempts to say something profound it invariably ends up flying back in his face. Turanga Leela, a outcast amongst outcasts, who when not brushing off Fry is captaining the ship between planets while wondering about her own origins. Bender, a wisecracking, gambling chain-smoking robot that is on the crew of the ship for no apparent reason apart from bumming around. Dr Zoidberg, a penniless joke of a medical practionioner that has no friends and seems to ignite hostility for just being him. Hermes Conrad, a Rastafarian bureaucrat who when not limboing for his nation is filing and shredding with an obsessive fever. Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, whose wonderous inventions are perhaps only eclipsed by his seemingly growing amorality towards almost all living things. Amy Wong, the daughter of the rich Wong family and as such finds herself slightly naive about things that are deeper than hair gel and nail polish. Add to this the military hijinks of Zapp Brannigan and his long-suffering lieutenant Kif Croker as well as thespian robot Calculon, Warlord alien Lur and President Nixon as well as others and I think you have a group of characters that all have their own quirks and flaws to add to a very funny show.

I only hope that they have enough sense to put it back on again.

Quotes

Bender: All right! Closure!


Goofs

In many episodes the Earth's knowledge of things that have happened in the past is lacking, due to an apparent loss of historical documents throughout time (for example, in Season 1 Episode 2 "The Series Has Landed" it is made clear humans don't know the exact details of the first moon landing, or in Season 5 Episode 2 "Jurassic Bark" it is unclear how a 20th century pizzeria operated,) yet many people from Fry's time period are still alive, such as Richard Nixon or Leonard Nimoy's head. Also, even though characters do not know the details of important events in or before the 20th century, many characters make references to popular songs of the past (William Shatner in Season 4 Episode 12 "Where No Fan Has Gone Before", Kif in Season 3 Episode 5 "Amazon Women In The Mood".)


Crazy Credits

During the opening, old 1930's cartoons are played on a giant monitor and are different each time. In the episode "Roswell That Ends Well", the cartoon featured in the opening was played in the episode on a small TV. Also when the title appears, a new message appears every time.


Alternate Versions

Originally, one episode had a scene where Fry pulls down his pants and moons the business magnate Mom (of Mom's Friendly Robots). Her original dialogue was, "You call that an anus?", but it only appeared in closed captioning and was redubbed with "You call that a pressed ham?".
