I've seen every episode at least once. The thing I've never done is show every episode in order in a marathon (I don't have the time and patience to do so). The novelty of the hasn't worn off for me and I find myself often putting a episode on every once in awhile.

I can definatly see someone get tired of watching the same stuff over and over again knowing there will probably never be more of again.

I don't think its a cardinal sin to say that Futurama isn't your favorite show. It's not mine either but It's definatly a reason I got into art and animation (My majors in college). Futurama for me ranks up there in top 5 things to watch on TV; which includes South Park, Family Guy, Simpsons, and Chappele's show.

I still haven't done the marathon thing, I need to assemble some friends for a weekend, and lock the doors so they can't leave :evil:

Just so you all know, definately is spelled definitely. Just go with me on this one, I have been corrected many a time by t3h spelling nazi edel  wink

I do however watch the show a lot.  I've seen most episodes on their first showing, I've watched them all at least twice on my dvds, and when I'm watching tv late at night, I will turn it on and watch the episode.  It's not so much the obsession anymore, like I said earlier, Futurama has become a part of me.  And I understand that loss feeling, because when it was fresh and new I was genuinely excited and believe me, I was uber obsessed.  I made songs, the monday at school was always talk of what happened last night, when I got the internet, I downloaded EVERYTHING that was Futurama.  And back then there was a lot of good stuff, believe me  smile 

I'm not saying that you can't say that you're bored of Futurama, and I'm not really trying to give you a way to become "unbored".  I'm just laying it down of what Futurama truly means to me, and that's why whether it's boring or not, it won't ever be gone.  Not even if Fox could cancel it a thousand times...

From now on I will definately spell definitely correctly.    wink 

Once again Winna, I think that Futurama  definitely (see I can spell it right) is part my life now in a sense. Because, it was part of the reason I'm taking Animation now in college.

Off topic- Is anyone else having problems with the General Discussion threads. I mean it takes forever for it to load for me and I have DSL. Any answers for this?

A little problem with show was that seasons get little old after they finished.Many stories are still enjoying but just arennt that kind which you can watch over and over (just as I think).New season TV or production was nice refesh.So now...

Forgive me for posting in this pointless thread but if you're sick of the show, don't watch it anymore....if you're sick of anything just don't do it....!  roll eyes

I've been so bored with PEEL the last few months that I just stopped coming here and I haven't missed it as much as I would have a year ago....

Futurama is my favourite show and I've seen every ep countless times....you can only take so much....have a break and watch them all again in a few years....and when you do don't start a new thread and tell us.... no no

Let me break....let me break you down....for your sake....I will break you down...."[/small]

It's like your favorite Christmas special.  Sure you may like it, but if you watch it all the time, it gets a little boring.

I love Futurama, but I don't watch it all the time that I feel bored of it.  I suggest that to those who are bored with Futurama, be moderate.  Moderation is a good thing.

Just like how Fry likes Star Trek so much, I like Futurama that much.

I wouldn't say I'm bored with Futurama, but it isn't one I'm overeager to watch at the moment either.  It's become one of those shows I'll watch the odd episode of when there's nothing better on.

I'm not bored with it, myself.  If someone is bored with the show, I understand.  Besides, how can I be bored with it when the comics and DVDs are still going strong?

To be honest, I don't watch Futurama on CN much anymore.  I've tried to watch a few episodes recently, but I don't end up watching the episode completely.  I figure, I have the episodes on DVD and so what's the point?  Thank goodness for the comic book though.

I remember when I first watched Futurama, I was really into it and I became a die hard fan.  However, between 2001-2003 I would continue to watch episodes, but I wasn't really into them like I was during the first two seasons.  There were a few episodes between that time that did stand out above the others.  It wasn't until when I learned it was cancelled that it rekindled me being a die hard fan once again.  I guess now, I'm starting to lose that die hardness.

I hope some big news concerning Futurama happens, because then I'll start to feel like a die hard fan once again.

Like others have said, Futurama has become such a solid part of my life that no matter if I don't watch the show or visit the websites on a regular basis, it's always in my heart. I have a calendar here, a t-shirt there, but I don't have every single piece of merchandise and memorabilia ever made, not even close. I don't want it. I don't need it. Somehow, with Futurama, just knowing the show is enough.

It doesn't matter if other people around me (or not, as in the case here) get tired of it. It doesn't matter if nobody wants to talk about it or watch it with me anymore. The show is something special to me; it represents not necessarily a time in my life but a frame of mind I love and cling to. Besides being a wonderful television show, Futurama means so much to me personally that I never seem to tire of it and I really couldn't care less what anyone else thinks of it.

Watch for the UBB tag at the end of this. I don't want to have to explain it.

It's a fact that people do get bored of things and move on. Only real obsessives and nerdy types stick with anything, because as we all know, liking something strongly, and not just following it because it's currently "cool" is a character weakness or a mental illness.

Also, America is made up of indivuduals strong in character, strong in body. Jocks, for the most part, who would rather watch the football and be real men, rather than take time to enjoy something a litte more intelligent. So FOX being an American network, FOX did the good American thing and axed our favourite show.

Just one more example of how the US media are trying to keep the US population stoopid, and another example of how I'm glad to be living outside the US media's sphere of influence. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to write Tony Blair, explaining why he should be shining Mr. Bush's shoes right now.

I already have it planned out though.  When I get older I will buy a big suitcase/trunkboxthingy and put all my futurama dvds in that box.  I will also include in there a dvd player (just in case time makes fools of us all).  I will then take floppy discs and cds and copy off wallpapers and icons and games and other things off the internet.  I'll probably include every page of the Futurama website museum along with old logs which still spark memories.  I might download all the episodes and put the them on cd too and put them in there; I regret I didn't videotape all the episodes when they first came on, or I'd put them in there too.  I'm going to put up all my Futurama memories in a box for safekeeping forever and ever.  And when I find someone I can share my deepest interests with I will pull out that box and look through it and we'll watch a few episodes.  And a little later, when I have kids, I will pull that box out again and I'll introduce them to Futurama.  And when I'm dead and chopped up into little pieces, my Last Will & Testament will have a clause in it giving that box... the box of Futurama to my dearest.

You see.  Futurama isn't just a show for me anymore.  It was with me during an important period in my life, and even if the jokes get old and stale, those stories... those characters will be with me.  And the people (I'm sure the ones I'm talking about, know I'm talking about them) I met along the way, they will be here too *points to heart*

I'm just as much of a fan now as i ever was. But i'm a fic reader so for me it's almost like getting to watch new eps (provided it's a well written fic). Plus my roommates are all casual fans and will occasionally ask to see certain eps, or we'll watch adult swim. It's easier to keep up your fandom when you have people around you who are also fans. (though not to the extent that i am)

So very well said. I totally agree with you SpaceJockey. The show is special to me too, I don't care if no one else will like it in one year, or two months , or three weeks, I'll still love it because it help me get through the good times and the bad, and the times when I needed to laugh too. Futurama will always be apart of me, no matter what happens.

Ok, I'm done with this lame post. Move on, nothing to see here.  wink

I can't even watch Futurama anymore. Every time I watch the show, all I can think of is this part of PEEL and all the morons like Guru who have ruined it for me. I also think of the Weird Scenes forum which has pretty much ruined the show for me too.

If you want me, I'll be back in Offtopic.

I was never into futurama until it got cancelled (sadly), but the first time I watched an episode I would die laughing.  Now I watched them so much that I only laugh out loud at some parts, but I smile the whole way through -- as if I'm on a high.

Conclusion: I'm addicted to futurama.

^You're not alone. If I go for two days (hell, even one) without seeing one complete episode of 'Futurama', I start feeling sick and irritable, and lose my concentration. (I'm not joking.)
But once I finish watching the last four episodes after my "One Episode A Day Starting From 'Space Pilot 3000'" marathon, I will once again try to stop watching it for a while. (Although I may break after three days, like the first time I tried.)

Children, children, play nice...
Nothing wrong with getting bored with something.
And it takes balls to admit in the face of such die hard fans.

Here's an experience of my own:

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Deek.
Heard so much Stones in college - couldn't keep his int'rest piqued.
And then one day he was playin' in a band.
And that renewed the faith for that guitar pickin' man.
Stones, that is. Only Rock an' Roll. Live with me.
Now the next thing ya know, ol' Deek's a reborn fan.
His band mates said "Make a slide out of that there can".
Said "Silver Trainr" is the song ya oughta play"
So he chugged down a beer and's a fan to this day.
Stones that is. Keith Richards. Star Star.

Make of that what you will.

See? It works perfectly well as one larger post. USE THE GODDAMN EDIT BUTTON!

If you keep blatantly ignoring the rules, I know I, and probably others, will report you to a moderator.

And back on-topic:

I can agree that it does get boring after a long time of watching reruns. But if you just take a break for a while, don't watch it very much, maybe slow down on posting here, when you get back into it it will be more interesting. That's what happened to me.
I basically competely lost interest in Futurama and PEEL over the last summer. I think I suffered from withdrawl. I'm still recovering.

I don't watch Futurama nearly as frequently as I used to, but I still laugh when I do. I also sometimes put it on to calm myself down when I'm stressed out. Kind of like comfort food, only harder to chew.

Hell, everything gets boring after some time, but with such well developed fandom you can read the fic while you're "on a break" from watching eps... It works for me... And just like Venus said - reading a good fic is just as good as watching the show - and additionally after some time you can have trouble which sentence/situation came from the original Futurama and which from the fics at least i have it that way

Hee, that reminded me of this quote:
"We both know you won't make it halfway to Vergon 6 before the craving sets in. Then you'll come crawling back for another taste of sweet sweet candy...Bam!"
Fitting   tongue

As for staying on-topic; since my re-discovery of Futurama only happened a few months ago, I'm still on fire   wink But I've also noticed that my other obsessions have had to slide aside a bit. Still love them, of course, but I still don't get all excited when seeing something, say, Python-related. Which strikes me as weird, because that hasn't happened for *such* a long time. Now, *Futurama*, that's a whole other deal. I even blush if somebody mentions it.

I don't know if this has a point, make out of it what you want. But hey, the craving for some sweet candy will probably come back.

one thing you'll need to learn is that PEEL doesn't use HTML, only BBCode.

so replace the < > on most basic HTML tags with [ ] and you'll be set.
&#91;b]Bold[/b]
&#91;i]Italics[/i]
&#91;u]Underline[/u]
&#91;s]Strikethrough[/s]

those are the most common examples. for a more detailed description of BBCode, check out the Unofficial PEELers' FAQ by aslate.

and welcome to PEEL!

I am truly impressed by such commitment.  Other than eating and (often) breathing, I can't think of any activity I would care to perform every day.  I admire the fact that someone could be so devoted to a television show that their day depends on it and they go into withdrawal without it.

On the other hand, I would like to smack some of these people.  C'mon!  It's not a religion (although it's soon to be one).  Do you think that any of the writers/producers/v.o. actors/artists ever watch the show again?  Maybe once each episode at most?  I'm sure that Mr. West (if he even owns the DVDs) does not curl up in front of them with a pint of Ben & Jerry's and a tear remembering his days at the recording studio.

It's just a television show.  It's not that impressive.  Sure, it's funny.  Sure, I can admire the talents involved.  But it's nothing I couldn't do work on myself.  The same goes for most of you...I think.  Respect yourselves a little bit more.

Best wishes in your continuing fight with addiction,
