It's okay, I've seen better cartoons of this variety (simpsons, southpark, King of the hill). All though I gave south park and simpsons a 3 out of 5. south park was more like a 3.75 out of 5 and simpsons a 3.50 out of 5. This is a solid 3.
Like the Simpsons, except it takes place in the future and isn't funny.
who doesn't love futurama? it's sad that it's ending again.
LYAO funny at times!! :D
if you say it sucks u suck it pwns ass
This is one of my all-time favorites. I'm glad they finally finished the story, recently. This show always made me laugh and if I needed cheering up, Futurama always lifted my spirits. I really didn't like it much, until I watched it from the very first episode, then I understood the characters more.
A pretty good show from Matt Groening, but not really as good as The Simpsons. Some of the episodes are really funny or have a really good storyline. Some episodes, however are kind of boring.
LYAO funny!!! :D
Gotta jump on the band wagon for this show. Very funny. A little too adult for pre-teens but absolutely hilarious. One of the few cartoons I'll stop down and focus on. Have never connected with the whole anime thing - if there is anything to connect to there (maybe I'm just too old) - but this cartoon engages my mind when I want a laugh!
One of the best cartoons ever. I'm not terribly surprised some people give it a poor rating - because the intelligence, subtlety, broad humor, and warp-speed pace obviously is too much. You want full-out dumbed-down laughs, go watch something else. For brilliant lines and sight gags, reference to real science and science fiction, loveable characters, great laughs, and extraordinary voice talent - go for Futurama.
This show will have me laughing so hard it hurts at one part, only to have me laugh even harder a couple of seconds later! Very VERY funny!!! :D
Usually entertains. Somewhat underrated.
Honestly, the show took a while to grow on me but now it's one of my favourite shows! Thank you Cartoon Network, for giving my my daily Futurama fix! Why Fox lets the Simpsons drone on and cancel great comedy like this, I will never understand.
Kiff is my boyfriend.
This is easily one of, if not the best animated comedies out there. The storylines in each episode are fresh and original, but the characters are what makes this show great. Bender is hilariously obscene, and the Professor is funny in his crazy-old-man sort of way. I also enjoyed the animation itself, and some of the 3D shots are extremely well done. Here's to you, Futurama!
It is as good as any cartoon out there. Look for a spin off with Bender.
This show sucked and I can't beleive that the cartoon network puts this show on all the time!
This show is the most stupid one i've ever seen in my life and its intended for adults to watch.My sometimes adults prove themselves to be more easily amused than children.
If you think this show stinks, I suggest you watch some of the first shows, they were great. I wish I would have taped the first 10 shows. As time went on it got stupid.
if they can bring back family guy they should bring back futurama it was great anyone who didnt understand the show are lame ass ppl who dont have a open mind 2 thumbs up for everyone else keep the fight try to bring it back ( fox should trade it with simple life)
i thought it stunk. i could never understand why my kids liked it.
I thought this was a funny show not the simpsons but funny
they should bring this show back, it was awesome.
Dang! It Fox does it again
This show rates up there with The Simpsons and Family Guy. Although not as funny (but funny still) it is extremely entertaining. Watch it, you won't be disappointed.
As a huge Simpsons fan, I am no less thrilled with Futurama. As a huge sci fi fan, Futurama has a special place in my heart because of the writers' obvious love and respect of SF that comes through in every show. There are so many large and small homages to various Sci Fi subjects and icons that I catch something new every time I watch the show. If you love this show and you love SF, I recommend getting the DVDs and watching the shows with the commentary soundtrack turned on. You will LOVE it!
i know a lot of people who like this show its o.k. but in some shows its cool!!! u gotta watch this some time who knows u might love it
gee, is it gone. That's too bad. NOT
Someone at FOX needs to be fired for cancelling this gem. If you get a chance to watch it late at night on Cartoon Network's adult swim you should. It's the Simpson's equal maybe even a notch better (maybe because they have the same creaters).
This show was hilarious and had a lot of subtle, clever humor to go along with the not-so-subtle. But it was probably too off-the-wall to gain a huge following. I enjoyed it, though.
To the producers that pulled the plug: bite my shiny metal ass!
This show was cut way before it's prime. Every season only kept getting better. The show was so well-balanced between silliness, wit, and morals. I love Fry's and Bender's individual struggles between doing whatever they wanted and doing what's right, the Professor's goldfish-memory-geniusness, and Zoidberg's total lack of knowledge of being what he is - a doctor. Too many good things that will be missed, but one that I'll miss the most are the little 30 second blips before the opening credits. Some of the best humor was in those. Alas...another FOX tragic loss...ROBOT HOOUUSE!!!
Absolutely the greatest, mainly because it's funny. Bender's crimes, Fry's learning disability, the Professor's 3-second memory span, it absolutely runs together smoothly. Anyone who thinks it sucks is mindless
Thank goodness for the Cartoon Network and Adult Swim; they're running the show at 11P, so those who never got to appreciate the show can catch up on the fun.
Duh? who are these posters here dissing this show because it's 'stupid'? It's meant to be silly..that's what having a sense of humour is largely about. As an animated show I thought it was pretty well done. Some nice lines in dry, sharp and cynical humour underneath the daffy plots.
I can't imagine fully appreciating this show unless you have a fairly high level of nerd in your background. Having such a background (Dungeons & Dragons jokes are funny! Math problems make great site gags!), I loved this show. It also had great animation (with seamlessly integrated 3d effects), and a surprising amount of heart (Jurassic Bark was kick you in the gut level touching). The dvd commentaries rank among the best I've ever heard.
Man I loved this show and I will never understand Fox. They cancel good stuff and put crap in its place.
uninteresting characters doing stupid and silly things.
1st season was great. 2nd was decent. Then down from there. The setting was great, but the some of the stories got too weird.
This was the best American cartoon ever! Nothing could beat the humor and inside jokes of Futurama.
