Who almsot feelsl ike Why watch Tv when shows like this get canned?
After episodes Like Jurasic Bark, godfellas ect..this show i think is a top 5 of all time.
i guess like Seifneld and even the soon to be Arrested Dev...it went out "on top of its game"...
I jsut find it really hard to beleive shows get better than this
because they dont.

What do u guys feel when u watch this and realize its probably not coming back?
its ebtter than current simpsons (god forgive me, DIEHARD simpsons fan. Way ebtter than AD, and its really diffrerent from FG.....Maybe when simpsons are done it comes back
but
Am i the only one who sees a really good episode and just doesnt wanna watch tv anymore?

BTW: forgive my typing but my hands are kinda shaky, was recentley in a car accident and have had a bit of a shake ever since..kinda scary but forgive the typos (and i could edit but it makes it harder)

Of course you are the only one who feels that way...why would a site devoted to Futurama actually like the show?

GET OUT OF MY HEAD!!!!!

Seriously, I too feel the same way, when I see reality show after reality show, coupled with the horrific trainwreck that is The Simpsons, I feel that TV is dead. Good TV anyway.

same here.  Every time televisual atrocities like American Dad or The War at Home come on I always think "and yet they killed futurama..." I doubt I'd watch television at all if it werent for South Park and reruns of The Simpsons and Stargate sg1 that aired before they sank into crappiness.

I understand just how you feel.  It's like whenever something new, actually good, and has some intellegence like Futurama did, nobody wants to have anything to do with it.  And Networks don't want to sponsor those kind of shows. I believe TV is dying because of endless seasons of The Simpsons, dysfunctional family sit-coms about brainless parents and goof-off kids, and reality shows.  And people wonder why enterainment is so messed up.

So, no, you're not the only one who feels the way you do.

it was a good show. fox just couldnt support, and the simpsons was more successful. so i think matt devoted more time to that

The only thing I really watch nowdays is The Simpsons. :hmph: Naw, CrapBag, FOX just sucks. I'm sure Matt did spend more time on it. It's got way better stuff and he enjoyed himself on the Futurama commentaries. Especially when they said pen** 6 times.

I feel your pain... tv gave me eye cancer... from "LAX" and "Medium" and other such shows that are insanely terrible..... but
futurama couldn't make it? an average person would like the show not just smart people.....

I've stopped watching 'cause there seems to be nothing new that sci-fi or funny it all seems to be some f***ed up show about a hospital and some doctor that works there, I personnally think that is now just mindless dribble. I just no longer care about TV, but for slightly different reasons to you. I do say that Futurama was on of the best shows around, a cartoon sci-fi comeday ... couldn't get much better.

once 'reality tv' dies out, tv will hopefully have some more worthwhile tv shows.

RS 2thou i have to, noticed all those medical shows. im no doctor but i get the feeling that half they stuff they talk about isnt even right, but i will stand corrected, and there are so many medical shows on its hard to tell them apart and i thought they would have run out of ailments by now.

reality tv has been going strong for quite a few years now. it isin't snowballing like it used to but it certainly isin't going to go away anytime soon.

I refuse to watch any medical show on TV becaue A) I hate seeing inconsistantcies and inaccuracies and B) I work it - and I have worked it for 17 years - I'll be damned if I'll watch it on my off-time!

Since this is a Futurama board, I don't think that you'll have any disagreements there.  no no

The fact that you're absolutely right about Futurama being one of the best series ever just means that you have above average intelligence!

Okay you cunts, let's see what you can do now.
