Jezzem, you should tell him that was sarcasm.

i dont beleve all those moments occured in 2 ep's, but i said that i haven't seen the show in a while and what i should of included is the previous post is i dislike any moments referring to aliens, monsters or talking monkeys or whatever. Family Guy does it I know, but that show is funny unlike this show

Family Guy is smart especially the older episodes which were more on-topic to the plot then what the are these days.

the older episodes are classics perfect balance of flashbacks, cut-aways and story development. Loved the Aliens joke about the queen a few years ago

"stop, not so fall yall, you think you can just step-away you crazy, i like to eat people especially yall. I like to yall with my little mouth to, yall u get back inside little mouth, i wants to play to, get back inside i gets ya when wheres eaten them"

Classic, especially if ur a fan of the alien series especially Aliens.

Should any of us even argue with this guy anymore? He's clearly and idiot. I mean, he can't spell, he thinks that family guy quote is less stupid and immature than Futurama and he pretty much joined PEEL just so he could get a link to some soft core Futurama porn!

Future Shock, yeah he DID spell it wrong.

I think the problem here is that you're completely disregarding the entire series after seeing, I'd say, about five or six episodes. And, with the exception of the dog episode--"Jurassic Bark", from season four--you're talking about episodes from seasons one and two, which were more gag-driven ("silly and babyish", as you would deem it, though I have to disagree). If you want to see what I consider the best of Futurama, I'd look to seasons three and four--the funny episodes got funnier, and the dramatic episodes were handled beautifully. If you're a fan of The Simpsons, like me, I think the two shows are brilliant in comparable ways: they can combine pretty sad stories with pretty hilarious jokes.

There's nothing wrong with joining PEEL to let us all know that you hate Futurama, but it'd be nice if you had more to go on than having seen less than a tenth of the episodes.

You could always change the name to Shot vs PEEL.  wink

I have said this before I think, but Futurama is clearly a labour of love, everything about it oozes care and attention to detail. It's clever but never pretentious, silly but never stupid, and er... better than the Simpsons.


My brain hurts!

Shot? Should be.
Anyway - Futurama crap? Here's a list of the awards it's won:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futurama#Awards

In comparison to the Simpsons; having a slightly older target audience means it has a greater emotional depth and more mature subject matter. Your criticism seems to stem from the fact that it exists within a science-fiction framework, and you may be personally adverse to science fiction. That's just a matter of personal taste, not a reflection of the program's quality... The science-fiction setting allows for greater situational and conceptual freedom compared to The Simpson's mundane real-world setting (and this is one of the reasons many people are drawn to sci-fi as a whole).

It isn't unfunny. Much of the humor just happens to be based in fairly advanced science and mathematics. It's humor for the intelligent, not crass absurdity like Family Guy. Don't get me wrong, I like Family Guy for a bit of mindless fun. But I also enjoy programs which require thought. Smart people do. Evidently you do not; your lack of intelligence evidenced by your apparent pressing need to join a fan forum for the sole purpose of bagging the member's chosen fandom... and then your apparent surprise that they would lash out at you.

Well duh.

I also find it amusing that you reference childishness yet seem to be a fan of Family Guy. Hypocritical much? FG, along with the virtually-identical American Dad (at least Groening and co. were able to make something different from their flagship product) is one of the most childish adult animations to be found.
Funny, but patently stupid.

Anyway, in conclusion: Fuck off.

The point is you come here, you've watched very few episodes then getting an idea the whole show is bad. And you only want one scene: a stupid out-of-place scene which most people think was pointless -- how do you think people will react to that?

So we agree, that robot dance that the Futurerama crew was doing was indeed stpid??

Like i have siad, I have seen many episodes all of which contain the same basic concept for example one I didn't mention that I most probably forgot about but now remember was that stupid titanic parody ep.

Shot, you claim to be 18, yet you are a total failure of spelling every single member's name you address.

How can we trust you can have an opinion on anything that is worth considering?

Did you expect us to greet you with open arms when you would announce that the show we love sucks, and you think it is the worst thing ever to happen on this very Earth?

Either you are a troll or just a complete fucking moron.

For your sake, I hope it is the former, because I seriously hope people are not that stupid.

 You are basically saying that because I don't like futurerama I am a moron, hmm last time I checked different people like different programming for example I like Family Guy and you might hate it however that doesn't mean I'm going to start calling you a moron or an idiot just coze u don't like the same show I like. Take that into consideration mate. oh and I have a right to free-speech which is why I'm voicing my reasons for my dislike for the show on these boards.

The robot was a popular dance in the 70s/80s... the gag was that the robot character was the only one who couldn't do it. That's actually pretty amusing. One of the many instances of past fads/concepts juxtaposed on the future setting, thus giving them a different level of meaning. In this instance we used to imagine robots would move in a certain way but as it turns out Bender can't actually do it.

You do need to know what the reference is to find it funny. And it's not funny if it has to be explained to you. Since a large percentage of futurama's cultural references are from the sixties through to the eighties you either have to be older or have some familiarity with historical trends.

EDIT:
No, he's saying that you're a moron for coming on here in the first place to voice your hatred of the forum's subject. That's pointless. That's just looking for a fight. And you're acting surprised that you found one.

Like I said before:

DUH!
