Can be watched till the end of time..
Futurama is the second series by Matt Groening. Now when I was watching The Simpsons one idea was that why we can't see this guy more, why he is only behind a widely known TV series while poking some other people. But with Futurama I say he is (OK, was) unleashed.

Futurama deals with moron pizza delivery boy Fry being accidentally frozen and wake up 1000 years after into a whole new world. Strangely this is not the story of the Fry's adaptation, because he is not. He is still the same stupid guy back in 20th century.. Maybe a little improvement but that's all.. Then we meet Leela, who is the only cyclops alien in the whole galaxy (as far as she knows), orphan, different from others. Last but not least the main cast includes Bending Unit Bender which is a robot. Nice thing about him is that the general idea of a robot is that they are always serving and helping and supporting, but Bender does not. He lies, cheats, steals...

Then the supporting cast has the cute and horny Chinese (or Japanese?) Amy, Fry's great^20 nephew professor Farnsworth with crazy inventions but an unstable mind, doctor Zoidberg that mastered on human medical but not a human itself, Jamaican manager who is a qualified limbo master and denying machine...

I like Futurama because it creates an unexpected, yet tempting future and combines it with cunning references and a strange comedy style. It's range of poking is 'wider'..

Futurama can turn any depressed mood to a happy mood if just the watcher accepts the fact that show does not require a deep concentration for the whole concept, but likes to catch it slowly by using trivial extras and nicely planted sci-fi references.

This show was one of the best. Ever. It's a pity that it was canceled an I pity the fool who canceled it. Such things should continue till the end of time.. Thanks to the makers of DVD, they partially do.

Futurama is mandatory for all sci-fi and comedy lovers, and highly recommended for everyone else.

Trivia

The character Cubert (the Professor's clone) was initially conceived as being somebody who would point out all of the show's inconsistencies and plot holes. The idea was that he would be the voice of obsessed fans that paid far too much attention to detail. Unfortunately, the writers couldn't figure out a way to introduce him until season two, and aside from his debut episode, he never took on his original intended role.

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

The production company logo shown at the very end of the show is "30th Century Fox".


Alternate Versions

Cartoon Network has censored the Professor's favorite expletive, "Sweet Zombie Jesus" on at least two occasions, removing the Jesus.
