A much as I love the show along with everyone else on this forum trying to resurrect the show (which I intend to join in the cause by sending Fox letters, even though I'm in Australia even though I doubt they'll give a rats arse) I have this feeling of inevitablility that no matter what can be done those obstinate fools at Fox are too set in their way to kill Futurama. I think the fate of the show was sealed long before this given the amount of pre-empting and lack of proper promotion by Fox so I believe that we fans will probably just have to swallow this bitter bitter pill and move on.

On a side note I'd like to know the reaction of this offical cancellation by the head people of Futurama mainly Matt Groening and David Cohen.

i did have a feeling this would happen someday. when a station starts airing eps out of order that's usually a sign that things are heading south.

They did that to monty pythons flying circus for the first three seasons. Similar thing, nobody really understood it at first, and the BBC didn't really give it a good timeslot at first.... until they found out (at one of the filmings, which were in front of a live audience) the people started to enjoy and understand it. And look where MP is now!

Yep MP was tragically cut short but they did makr three movies after and John Clease made the hillarious Faulty Towers. SO there might be a light at the end of the tunnel still.

Monty Python became legend.
And lo, there was much rejoicing. Hurrah. :smiley waving flag:

I think MP was cut short because John Cleese got fed up and left - after that it lost some of its edge. I mean when ever people refer to classic MP sketches they hardly ever mention ones from the series John wasn't in.
He returned for the films and they were fantastic. And there was much rejoicing.  wink

However this is beside the point.

I find that there are many short running series that obtain a much better cult status in the following years than some more "successful" shows that went on much longer. However to be compeletly honest with you, I don't care if Futurama becomes a "cult" (It'll be great if it does) but I'd rather be watching brand new episodes of Futurama in years to come rather than remonising about the old ones.  hmpf

Try wishing on an eyelash instead.  Or at 11:11.  Or even a shooting star...  smile
