The one story on the side bar of the main page talks about a book with an essay about Futurama. The book is called "Channeling the Future: Essays on Science Fiction and Fantasy Television" and here's the description given:
Channeling the Future: Essays on Science Fiction and Fantasy Television
Edited by Lincoln Geraghty. Scarecrow, $45 (254p) ISBN 9780810866751
The twelve essays in this collection examine aspects of sci-fi and fantasy television, from the recurring desert landcape of The Twilight Zone to the gritty aesthetic of the rebooted Battlestar Galactica. With the exception of Laurel Forster’s far-ranging essay on the scientist in sci-fi television (relating it to, among other things, the progression of the UK women’s rights movement), most essays will lose much impact for those who haven't seen the program under discussion. All, however, seem to build to editor Geraghty’s chapter on Futurama, where the previously discussed conventions are all, finally, set on their head. For fanboys of one or more, however, this volume should provide illuminating context. (June)
