On a scale of 0-100 what mark would you give Futurama? A lot of people might say 100. But I say 99!

99, yeah...
There's always episodes I won't like, but 90-95 or so...

I'm going 80%-90%, the only show with a higher rating all time would be The Simpsons.

The Simpsons all-time.  I mean, stuff like "Simpson, Homer Simpson, he's the greatest guy in history, from the town of Springfield he's about to hit a chestnust tree" and "Hello Mr. Thompsons.""I think he's talking to you" are hard to beat.  Given more time, I could think of some even better, even harder to beat, moments of the Simpsons.  If Futurama lasts a grand total of 10 seasons, I will change my standings perhaps.

awesome
I would have to agree then.  No doubt the Simpsons is better, has more funny bits, if you consider it as a whole. Of course it has a big advantage over Futurama.  There is a bigger pool to glean humor from and it's easier to forget the parts that fell flat. 

I'd say that as a whole, Simpsons is better, but this season Futurama is waaaaaaay better

I say Futurama is better than the Simpsons of NOW.

However, I would go as far as saying that Futurama will someday dethrone Simpsons as the funniest show ever. That's if Futurama retains it's quality in a period of 5-7 years. I hope it does retain it's comedic qualities or maybe even get even funnier as time goes on. That would rock!  big grin

Exactly what I'm trying to say.  In fact, I don't think I could have said it any better.
Kudos! 
If Futurama retains its excellence up to a season 8-9, I would seriously consider it.  If it last 12 seasons, I will definitely say it's better all time.  But not until then.

yes, that's what i believe too...with so many years behind the Simpsons now, Groening is running out of new material...especially with Phil Hartman gone...they lost many characters without him...but with Futurama, almost anything can happen because its the future! that's why it's so funny to see all the weird stuff that happens on the show...  tongue

The Simpsons might not be too great now(although it can still be funny sometimes), but seasons 3-6 are awesome...some of the greatest stuff ever. I wish this season's episode were half as funny as them.

Mike Scully's leaving, and Al Jean is gonna be the new executive producer next season. Hopefully he'll make everything better, but I don't know, I'm starting to think the show is a lost cause. He'd have to fire half the writing staff and either hire back some classic writers, or at least hire some new guys that actually know how to write a decent story. And even then, I doubt they could ever recapture the greatness of the classic seasons...the most I can hope for now is just a decent, entertaining show.

Anyway, Futurama...yeah, it's great. Currently funnier than the Simpsons have been in years. Not as great as classic Simpsons, of course, but the writing keeps improving. If it keeps with the current trend, and fox doesn't screw it over, I can see it rivalling classic Simpsons in a few more seasons.

On another note, Simpsons still do manage to get out a really good catchphrase every now and then:

Duffman is thrusting in the direction of the problem.

IMO, the better episodes of Futurama currently(ie Parasites Lost, Amazon Women in the Mood, Luck of the Fryish, etc.) is as good, if not better than most of the best Simpsons episode. Also the writing of Luck of the Fryish rivals that of the best Simpsons episodes.

I'd give Futurama a 93/100
Seems kinda low, but its higher than any other show in my opinion on TV as of now.
The Simpsons would be right behind with a 92/100

I am predicting the close death of simpsons.  It was a great show but its really losing momentum now, its just not funny anymore.  Just like that MadTV.  Back in my day EVERY show was funny, and they had spazz, yes spazz and a little bit of....

this is kind of a dumb topic.  everybody here will say that futurama is above 90, and you're being pretty harsh if you give it below 98.  even though i think i remember this topic from a while back, maybe a better title should be "Futurama VS Simpsons," because that's what this is mostly about.

Fishy Joe, they'll have an entire new crew of writers next week, the remaining writers will probably be Matt Sellman, John Swartzwelder, Mike Scully, Al Jean and George Meyer, hell, the classic writers.

Conan, eh...he's hilarious, but people really exagerate his impact on the show. His episodes were great, but so were just about all the other episodes back then. Seasons five and six are my two favorite seasons, and Conan left right at the beginning of season five, so he had no influence on a lot of my favorite episodes.

It'd be great to bring Conan back, but only as a writer...I don't trust him as an executive producer--after all, look at his show. It's pretty much had the same pattern as The Simpsons: after a brief rocky start, it had some really hilarious comedy, but then lost most of the better writers to other sketch comedy/talk shows(Dana Carvey, Mr. Show, Chris Rock Show)...they were replaced by less funny, lazy writers(laziness on Conan, by switching to four shows a week instead of five, and by blatantly repeating previous bits...and laziness on The Simpsons by switching back to the full intro, and also by making ridiculous, nonsensical endings instead of writing something original). His show is still good, but only because Conan himself is funny enough to keep it entertaining through the interviews and generally poor comedy bits.

I agree...I'm being hard on The Simpsons(but it's like they say, we're hardest on the ones we love...you certainly wouldn't see me rattle on endlessly like this about any other sitcom). It still makes me laugh, and it's a lot better than most of the other crap on TV. But still, I can't help but look at what the show once was, and what the show is now...and also look at what the show COULD be now. The show still has some great writers(Jean & Reiss, Matt Selman, Ian Maxtone-Graham, among others)...it should be so much better than it is now. Come on, that N'Sync episode was just inexcusably bad. It was embarrassing to watch.

Man, this is a long post...if anyone is still reading this, I apologize.

For me it's hard to decide which show is better. It's true, the Simpsons are around much longer and as far as I can remember every episode was funny (some more, some less). Futurama is still at the beginning and I'm still learning new stuff about the characters, which seems impossible to me with the Simpsons-characters. I guess we know all about them. There are no enigmas left like Leelas parents for example. So Futurama has a lot more opportunities left.
On the other hand there were some Futurama-episodes, that really bored me.
So I wouldn't compare the two shows. They are in a way different. I hope they both survive.

What Ricky said ...
I'm far from willing to scan all threads for Birmingham Cow Disease on a daily basis. I do this in my spare time, like all of you. And deleting posts is a painful thing on UBB. And if you want me to reply to your "please let me on again" mails, make sure your mail account isnt full ...
Actually, forget that. As i said, I won't remove your college a third time, so better make sure you lot get things sorted and post in a normal manner. If you run against the flood control cause you all only have one IP, not my problem, can't help that. But if the result looks like above (if it was 2 posts, no problem at all, but this ?), I sure can and will help that. Be assured that I'm willing to sacrifice some unguilty at an English college in order to get the board enjoyable for the mass.
Hint: If you accidently double post, its a common behaviour to edit the second one and make it say that it was an accident. This happens to others, too. And most of the times I delete those when I come across them.
And ... who is the one at your school who signed up as "I am what you see" ? That'd better not be a clone account.
