WHAT THE FUCK?????????
Not one of the four shows I actually watch!!! Those scurvy shister bastards. What they have to make room for more mindless crap? God forib there be a television show with actual wit and irony in it. THEY HAD THE FUCKING BEASTIE BOYS ON FOR GODSAKE! Sorry I just can't yell enough about how genuinly scrwed up that is. Futurama was something to look forward to everyweek, and they were always canceling it for their bullshit special events. Fox sucks. Boo those people!!!!!!!!!!!

Keepin it krunk...


There's only room for one and here she comes, here she comes...

This reminds me a lot of "The Critic." Maybe "Futurama" can have a life at Comedy Central?

"He had lived through an age when men and women with energy and ruthlessness but without much ability or persistence excelled. And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

blarg! I love that show! And I think it would have been a success if they had just put it on right after the Simpsons instead of stupid Malcolm in the Middle. That show is the one that should be cancelled!

This does not make me a happy plant.

Problem is, animated programs are expensive and time-consuming - particularly shows with Futurama's high production standards (e.g., using computers to help create "realistic" 3-D settings).

Essentially, animated shows have to have REALLY low production values (Space Ghost, South Park), or REALLY high ratings (Simpsons, King of the Hill).

Unfortunately, Futurama had neither.

...though I *imagine* DVD box sets would sell quite well.

HEEEEEY! Malcolm in the middle is a brilliantly funny show, ain't nothing wrong with it. Futurama is probably being cancelled because of Fry's voice, damn the guy that did that voice anyway...invading my ffx video game...ugh.

Thats crap though, considering that Fox gives them the shitass 7pm sunday timeslot, the one that is preempted by football, baseball, basketball, movies, and goodness knows what else, last season I dont know if there were more than 3 episodes that aired on the correct date... BLARGH... I love futurama...

Huzzah for jumbonium and whalers on the moon.

I love Malcolm in the Middle, wouldn't want to see that go.

It would be nice to give Futurama a decent time slot, maybe on another day. Oh, well...
