Trivia

The final 2 minutes of the final Futurama: Meanwhile (2013) hints at the possibility of a reboot and that the reboot could be given the Star Trek (1966) and Terminator Genisys (2015) treatment. With Professor Farnsworth, elderly Fry and Leela entering a new time line via the Time Button. See more »

Goofs

Leela's biological father is a mutant; one of his traits is that when he speaks his mouth appears to run vertically and open horizontally, whereas it is the opposite for a "normal" person. The problem with this is that he goes back to having a normal, human-looking mouth when not speaking. See more »

Absolutely Brilliant- the best TV series ever!
26 February 2008 | by BigBirdtheBumSee all my reviews

The television series Futurama is nothing short of brilliant and in my opinion is the best television series ever. I personally do not actually like science fiction movies or series aside from this one show which i give an exception too.

Futurama is easily leaps and bounds above the rest as it focuses substantially on character development and does avoid the common stereotype of "a family" as the focus. Instead the focuses of Futurama is simply several unique and hilarious work colleagues and there many adventures across the universe. What also is very unique is the characters are all different and each have there own opinions which provide an excellent contrast in the series. Another aspect of Futurama which surpasses other animation shows is the quality of the visuals. Futurama is notorious for having excellent visuals and has won several Emmy's for its animation achievement. The positives do not stop there; Futurama is amazing at portraying an amazing amount of emotion into the episodes that at some times had my holding back tears. This level of emotion is not even present in the Simpson's.

One final positive thing worth saying is that the show is able to appeal to all audiences, not just sci-fi lovers. For example by 50-year old mother can't stand sci-fi and she absolutely loves the show. The series itself does however contain some sexual humor that is structured rather uniquely to simply pass over young children's heads. Essentially all the sex jokes made will not be understood by the younger viewers.

Of course the show is not perfect as at it does of course have flaws. But thankfully these flaws are out shined by the brilliance of the series.

All I have to say is the biggest mistake in television history was to cancel this show, and put Family Guy back on instead of this. Conversely I am glad there are several more movies coming out which will provide the shows many fans with much more laughs. Overall I give the series a 10. One of the two television series I have ever given this too. The other being the Simpson's.
