ok, family guy is back, so where's our futurama? i want at least 4 more seasons. anyhoos, here's what they could do even if fox doesn't want the show back. the simpsons has been stale for years now, so why don't they just start making futurama episodes and giving them to fox as new simpsons episodes.

yeah, i know it sounds retarded, but think about it. the creators of the simpsons can do whatever they want with the show. they have such huge freedom and they never do what fox tells them to do (or not to do). and matt groening was even considering moving the whole show into the past and having it be about young homer, so really, they could make a huge content change and as long as they still called it "the simpsons" i think fox would be contractually obligated to air it. someone call matt and david and tell them to get on this.

First off, let me say welcome to Peel. There are links to the FAQ and a good one on the Fry Hole. Second, check other threads using the search tool, because there's many topics already about this. Third, I don't think that would work because Fox would know it's Futurama, they still like the Simpsons, they actually had more freedom on Futurama because they blatently ignored what Fox wanted. Plus Fox is employing them, they can just refuse to air it or just void the contract. Don't get surprised if this thread is closed by the mod. Good idea though

hm. i usually assume no one would ever come up with an idea as inane as something i might think up, so i went ahead and posted. incidentally, i just did a search for "simpsons" and couldn't find any topics about slowing turning the simpsons into futurama while hoping fox doesn't notice.

Yeah well people are pretty quick to start bitching about duplicate treads. So just do what I do and never start anything, just wait for someone else to do it.....it's even less work that way.

Do a subject-only search in General Disscussion for "back," and you'll find all the other crazy-assed barely-legal crack-brained plots to get Futurama back.
