How the year 3000 will be

Futurama is one of my all-time favorite shows. I started to get a little bit tired of The Simpsons in the late 90's so it was a perfect time to give Futurama a chance. So basically it was, goodbye 20th century, hello 31st century!

I enjoyed it for how well the show was written and found myself quoting lines from the show on a regular "dasis" (insert obscure Futurama reference).

I was pretty bummed when the show was canceled but when the DVD's came out, I purchased seasons 1-4 and continued to watch them from time to time and it never gets old. I'm just so amused by this eclectic bunch that make up the Planet Express delivery team from the year 3000. They have it all from a 90's guy, a robot, a one eyed mutant, a Chinese female intern and a Jamaican limbo champion bureaucrat.



So be sure to check it out, especially since it's back on the air with new episodes. Anyone who is interested in wacky humor with a number of 80's references will definitely enjoy this show.

I actually just watched this show for the first time in years last week and they made some references to some relatively new topics. I couldn't believe they were still making new episodes!

One of the smartest, funniest shows ever animated. Self-aware and unapologetic, it gets me every time.

Like a delectable snack, Futurama delivers bite-sized futuristic comedy in every episode.
