I don't care what the fan boys have to say about BBS it was a great segway episode into the new movies. For whoever thinks that TDHAIPT, or TLOFR have somehow been bastardized by this movie I would answer that this movie does not effect either of those episodes leaving the emotional aspect intact and if you are still crying over Fryís dog you need to get a life. Over time every series has to step on it's own feet at some point. I credit Futurama for addressing it's faults. This is the most brilliantly written series in network television history and I think we all owe a debt of gratitude to the series that transcended all of the other series and made something entertaining, intelligent and most importantly funny. This series and itís movie follow-ups have and will show us what Futurama can be. We all know that this is a more daring and thoughtful series than any animated or non-animated series has ever been. South Park is a fantastic show that does not have the character depth that Futurama has and lacks the depth of feeling that Futurama has. And as arrogant as this sounds ďbleepĒ the people that donít like Futurama they donít understand it and they never will. It is up to us nerds to parlay Futuramaís success into a continued  media juggernaut that will keep our favorite sci-fi series running forever. Groening, Cohen, Keeler, and all of the rest of you I would like to thank for providing us with such a great show/movie. In a small way you have made all of our lives better and Futurama is one of the best shows ever made. We all thank you for your contributions to Sci-Fi nerdom. I hope Futurama survives like the Simpsons and no matter what I will have Futurama quotes and memories for the rest of my life.

I for one hope that Futurama does not survive like The Simpsons. The Simpsons is shit these days. I'd rather see Futurama end on a high note than carry on into that sort of "survival".

Of course the ideal would be to see it go on forever with excellent quality.

But not like The Simpsons.

I second Arconix. People were sad over Seymore becuase he waited for Fry for 12 years before he died outside Panucci's waiting for Fry to return. Also Luck of the Fryrish added depth to Fry as a charater so this movie kinda took that away by having a Fry back in the past with his family. But I still loved it.

Yeah, I agree with you there.

Anyway, for a better comparison, I think it should continue forever like Pokemon has!!  ^_^


Meaning, in my opinion, Futurama should stay true to its main storyline, while at the same time change some things or add new touches here and there, while still at its heart being both the emotional and hilarious series we know and love.    smile


I don't mind the way they sorta changed some things about the series, with the execution of BBS and how that played out.  I still enjoyed the movie a lot.  Because for me, it doesn't change the episodes themselves, only how some of the things happened in the Futurama timline (which is kinda what makes me confused about the movie, and how it ties in with the series).  ^^;

Hello everyone!  I'm a proud fangirl of these two characters!  ^_^

Philip J. Fry (from Futurama)

Ash Ketchum (from Pokemon)

But remember, the Fry that went back and time to spend time with his family is now dead. The "real" Fry, the original Fry, never had the luxury of doing this. He doesn't know anything about it. So there is no change to Luck of the Fryrish/Jurrassic Bark as far as the effect on Fry's character. As far as he knows, his family never saw him again, and Seymore went off to find a new family.

The only thing that has changed is the emotional sting of being sad over Seymore and being sad of Fry's brother for missing Fry. The ret-conning in the DVD movie defitely takes away some of the harshness concerning those episodes. Still, I don't mind it. The original episodes still "happened" in a sense, and like I said either way it has no bearing on the characters in the show.
