huge success.

Not all of the reviews were positive... It had a plot hole or two too...

True, it wasn't perfect like Mobius Dick or Overclockwise, but you have to admit it was a damn good episode.

It was funny and very sci-fi. big grin Overclockwise was an anti-climax. If the show hadn't been renewed, that would of been a lame finale for me.

It would have to be done perfectly, because of their differences. I could see how it would be a success, but it could also be a huge failure.  mad

I really hope you're kidding, I really really do. The Simpsons just isn't good any more, in addition to it being a completely fictional universe. Groening has gone on record stating that The Simpsons is set in a fictional, very much cartoon version of America, whilst Futurama is meant to be more-or-less set in the real world. There are major differences between the two franchises. The Simpsons, for example, has been shown to be a TV show within the Futuramaverse.

It would be a plethora of self-referencing in-jokes, pointlessly shoehorned-in pop culture references, and horribly mangled continuity.

Please, for the sake of everything, nobody make a Simpsons/Futurama crossover movie. It'll be a gigantic, steaming turd.

You bring up a good point, there's almost no laughs. That's why it would have to be done perfectly. Still, it won't happen, and your right, it would 99% likely be a piece of shit.

It would depend on who took the production of it, the simpsons crew or the futurama crew. I bet it would be awesome. If they can do a great multi-comic spanning story of it, they can easily make a good film of it.

Let me put it this way; the Futurama crew handled the production of Yo Leela Leela and other stinkers. A terrible premise and poor execution of said premise cannot be saved by a decent production crew from producing something terrible.

I loved Yo Leela Leela. It was a perfectly fine episode. Way better than "All The President's Heads".

Why would the Simpsons/Futurama be a terrible premise anyway? It's worked in the comics, they are two brilliant shows. I'd love it.

Not at all, they both sucked (ATPH sucked a little less though, as it had a few decent moments)...

Then yes, you'd probably love a Simpsons/Futurama crossover movie. no no

There's a difference between not liking something and it being bad.

There's also a difference between liking something and it being good. You liked YLL, but that doesn't make it good. No power in the verse can do that.

To be honest, the think the mediocrity of Yo Leela Leela is exaggerated. I thought Neutopia was significantly worse.

(Just so you all know, I'm not trying to claim that Yo Leela Leela is a great episode.)

ImhO, "Yo, Leela Leela" had all the ingredients for a typical Futurama Episode:

- A character pursuing once again a solo careerer.
- Leela wanting to be a good example for the orphants.
- Link to present day: Kid show puppets often look like little aliens, and it's typical for Futurama to use these kinds of things for sci fi plots/twists.

But all those details just didn't really "come together". Probably because the way kid shows were presented made the episode look a bit too much like one.

Emphasis mine; that is the primary goal of a troll.  Totalnerduk's primary intend is not that; his intend is to be correct.  A troll never cares about winning an argument.

He is not interested in a response, other than a confession or the disappearance of the poster.  Ergo not a troll.  Trolls wants to keep people around, because otherwise they would have no fun.

I'd love a Simpsons/Futurama crossover if The Simpsons production staff handled it - because then it would just be a bonus bit of Futurama to enjoy on top of our usual yearly output and even if it ended up being as awful as it probably would, then us Futurama fans could just write it off as "not an episode of Futurama".

It would make a decent Treehouse of Horror segment. There's certainly plenty of ways for them to get around the whole "shows within eachother's continuity" thing.

But I wouldn't want it as a real episode of Futurama because it would be a cheap episode that would feel tacky and unwarranted. And also, because then we'd get one episode less of proper Futurama that year.

So does that mean I get to call you a troll now, Mr. Provocational? Hint: According to you, it does.

Absolutely. I suppose that as a TOH segment, if the Simpson family were sucked into NNY for a few minutes, I might actually enjoy it. But as for the theatrical release that was suggested, big no. That's one of the more retarded things that's been said, here in the most retarded section of the board.

ATPH was a funny episode, IMO, but it didn't feel like a Futurama episode. But the humor made up for it. I wold say it's between a 7.5 or 8.
