Over the UK half term, Sky will be showing Futurama almost everyday at 9:30 AM. The episodes in question will be...

Sunday 25th, 7:00PM - Space Pilot 3000
Monday 26th, 9:30AM - The Route of All Evil
Tuesday 27th, 9:30AM - Kif Gets Knocked up a Notch
Wednesday 28th, 9:30AM - Less Than Hero
(As of yet, there will be no Futurama on Thursday)
Friday 30th, 9:30AM - The Why of Fry

Interesting that Sky are now showing mostly Season 5 during the week, ending with TWOF - perhaps indicating that Sunday 31st could be a new S5 episode...(could be). Sky did say they were planning to show S3 episodes until new shows were available, but maybe they now know something I don't. Anyway, it seems like a good chance to catch the pilot if you havn't seen it, or catch up on some S5 episodes you missed.

Wicked. I missed both season 5 and most of 4 :-(
Roll on half term.

Looks promising.

Oh and if it hasn't already been mentioned, Futurama apparently returns to Channel 4 screens in July.

Just to be really annoying  tongue, I'll point out Sunday is the 1st June  wink.

Thanks for clearing that up, Radio Times' website has been jumping around all over the place on this.

In a slightly related note, the affiliates are predicting (I refuse to say scheduling now) "The Sting" will air on FOX on the 1st June, as well. I'm still expecting the worst-case-scenario, however  frown.

Well, the schedule updated. Nothing particularly interesting; there's a repeat of SP3K on Saturday (marking a return to the Saturday repeat), and TSHL on Sunday:

Saturday 31st, 8:00pm - Space Pilot 3000
Sunday 1st, 7:00pm - The Series has Landed

That is the most ridiculous schedule! 1ACV, 3ACV, 4ACV, 4ACV, 4ACV.

Whatever. At least they're showing it.

The return of Saturday showings could be a sign that Sky are preparing to show the brand new Futurama episodes very soon after FOX. Perhaps the following week. I mean, I don't think they could show it on the 1st since I really do think FOX refuse to allow them to show it before they do, and if they aired the same day, Sky would be 5-6 hours first.
I don't see what the problem is. If any Americans wanted to bootleg the Sky version, the download time would probably take more than 5-6 hours anyway...
I suppose it's just the principle of the thing  roll eyes

Wrong on the download time. A lot of Americans (like me) have broadband and can easily download it from an undisclosed source in under an hour. I would never do this, but it is possible.

I'll bump up this with a little update to the update   smile - in addition to the above, Sky are now showing even more Futurama on...

Saturday 31st - 1:00 PM - I Second That Emotion
Sunday 1st - 9:30 AM - I Second That Emotion
Sunday 1st - 12:00 PM - Brannigan, Begin Again

Bit of a weird schedule, but hey - at least its on. As I said before, I guess its a good chance to watch some old episodes at TV quality if you don't have the DVDs.
