    Default Futurama, What an great show.

    Farnsworth #1: Your people and your slight differences disgust me. I'm going home. Where's that blue box with our universe in it?

    Farnsworth #2: Oh you'd like to get back to your evil universe wouldn't you? And destroy your box with our universe inside it.

    Farnsworth #1: Nonsense! I would never do such a thing unless you would already having been going to do that!

    Farnsworth #2: Eh, Wha?

    Farnsworth #1: You heard me!


    I love this show. I still hate the fact that it's cancelled.

    Yeah, I love that show. Got it all on DVD. God knows how many times I've watched each episode.

    Ok sure the Professors got some WICKED one-liners, Bender kicks shiny metal ass, and Leelas freaking hot, but ZOIDBERG takes the cake!

    Yeah, he's pretty great. Pretty much all the characters on Futurama were great.

    I love Futurama and am currently borrowing Season 1 DVDs from my sister.

    I love the professor's lines, like in Mars University:

    Professor: Well, let's go gather him up. No point in letting a perfectly good monkey go to waste. *licks lips*

    I love futurama. totally. loved the leela/fry stuff (that's right! i shipped for a cartoon!). and zoidberg was hysterical. in fact, the entire thing was hysterical..and brilliantly written, and some really really good sci-fi plots. the episode where fry has people living inside him that make him smart..but are also killing him, so the professor and the others do the fantastic voyage thing inside him to save him..while on the outside, leela falls in love with the intelligent fry..that was so clever, and really very moving, at the end. and the devil was a great character..and i really, really loved the ending..with leela sitting in the darkened theatre, saying 'i want to see how it ends'. perfect

    Hmm, as I recall it turned out those worms were not harming him at all.

    The Futurama 'ship' episode I like the best was the 'time skip' one. Where one minute they are getting married and then bam, they're getting divorced hilarious stuff.

    You're right. The problem was that soon they would never be able to remove the worms.

    lol I love futurama, not such an avid watcher but every episode makes my laugh loads. My favourite has to be the one where they do a whole thing about Slurm. I can't remember what it's called but I sure as hell loved it!

    Leela: You're blackmailing me?
    Bender: Blackmail is such an ugly word. I prefer "extortion."


    I love this series. Frankly, it was much funnier than The Simpsons' past few seasons. They even managed to throw in a complex storyling involve Fry, giant brains, Nibbler, and Fry's grampa.

    [Everyone on Earth except Fry is moronically stupid]
    Fry: What are we going to do?
    Professor Farnsworth: Duh, I know, let's play the lottery.
    Amy Wong: No, let's buy internet stock.
    Dr. Zoidberg: On margin. Zoidbee wants to buy on margin.
    Hermes Conrad: [holding a board in front of his face] Look at me. I'm invisible.
    Fry: Wait a minute, I know what's going on here. You've all become idiots.
    Bender: Hey, let's go join the Reform party.
    It's a Fargate! It's different.

    I don't even think that was meant to be the very last episode.

    Fox canned it because no one knew when it was on, and they just showed the episodes that were never aired on Fox.

    "Bender Should Not Be Allowed On TV" was the intended final episode, however, FOX messed it up again.

    <sigh> I was so depressed when I heard Futurama was to be canned. All of those Simpsons jokes at Fox's expense were well deserved.

    Does anyone remember the Star Trek episode? That was pure comedic genius.

    Leonard Nimoy: Melvar you have to respect your actors. That's why I got such a good performance out of Bill in Star Trek IV, because I respected him so much.

    William Shatner: Yes and that's why I got such a good performance out myself in Star Trek V because I respected myself so much.

    That's not what the DVDs say--they say "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings" should've been the last. (Also support by it's opening quip being "See You On Some Other Channel." )
