The final episode of Futurama is over, bringing with it the end of an era. Will you.. Laugh? Cry? Pour yourself a glass of wine to toast the good times? Damn Fox's name for the umpteeth occasion? Or simply sit down in contemplation at what has been one of the finest series in recent years, cut off in its prime before reaching it's full potential? Come on, do tell!!

Remember, this really IS IT. There is NO MORE.

"Bite my shiny metal ass" is the most overused phrase of all time.. OOPS!!

First I'm going to damn Fox's name for the umpteenth occasion.  Then I'm going to get really depressed.

I will...

... laugh, cry, pour myself a glass of toast to whine about the bad timeslots

... think about the fact that if I jumped into a black hole any time before Sunday at 7pm I could llive forever without ever reaching that post-Futurama era

... call a satellite provider and ask if it's still possible to get service without the broadcast channels (until recently, you could _only_ get service without broadcast channels, but that's no longer true)

... failing that, reprogram my TV to skip channel 11 (KTTV, Fox)

... failing that, blow up channel 11's transmitter

... spend just as much time trying to decipher AL3 even though we never got to see it as if we'd had plenty to go on

... not watch all those episodes that I didn't illegally download, just as I don't do with all the NewsRadio, Family Guy, etc. episodes I don't have

... finally write the great American novel, paint my masterpiece, and compose the song that will make the beautiful mutant of my dreams fall in love with me just before the Earth is destroyed

... take up heroin, or at least morphine

... hibernate for two months until the next new South Park episode, so there will be something worth watching on TV

... check gotfuturama.com at least 28 times/day for any news of Futurama's future

... find out if there's anything to do on Sunday evenings outside the house

... rob Billy West's roommate wearing a Bender mask, while Billy is home, just to make sure he gets it

... call 212 information and ask fo Applied Cryogenics and see if they can freeze me until Futurama comes back on; or call Ron Popeil and ask him if the head-in-jar technology is ready yet

... build my own satirical animated sci-fi romantic comedy, with blackjack, and hookers

Hi everybody. A word of advice before watching "Devil's Hands": Remove all sharp objects from the vicinity of the TV. If you are in a third floor flat or room, close the window securely. And take off your shoelaces.

Oh and payn, very funny. Your wordplay astounds me. Just a quick question though, isn't there a rule about using the D word? (you know the one I mean) If this topic gets closed as a direct result of your slip I'll.. I'll... Grrr!!

Plus, I will...

... call up Fox and say, "What they all said, plus don't think I've forgotten that you still suck for cancelling Family Guy"

... call up NBC and say, "You still suck too, for cancelling NewsRadio."

... call up ABC and say, "You still suck too, for cancelling Clerks."

... call up UPN and say, "You still suck too, for not cancelling Enterprise."

... call up CBS and say, "You've just always sucked, sorry."

... dig up Katrina and the Waves' first album (the one before the one with "Walkin' on Sunshine"--I think it was called "Shock Horror"?) and figure out why I haven't listened to it in 20 years

... adopt some 17-year-old orphans and change their names to Philip, Amy, Toronga, and Bender and see how long it takes the state to take them back

... find and befriend some teenager who's named "Bender" because his parents' first date was "The Breakfast Club"

... try to figure out the recipe to Bachelor Chow

... invest half my money in whatever NYSE stock is registered as MOM, the other half in anchovies, and the other half in terraforming-suitable ivy and hemp seeds

... find the last episode of Ally McBeal on gnutella and burn it to CD, just in case

The D word? "Decipher"? "Dreams"? Ah, "Download"!

But all I said is that I didn't illegally download any episodes of Futurama, and therefore will not be watching any such episodes--which is a good, positive, pro-American-copyright-law/pro-PEEL-policy sentiment, is it not?

It's not as if I told anyone where or how I could have downloaded them, had I chosen to (which, again, I didn't).

If this is a problem, I'll edit the post. Should I say that I won't watch the episodes that I didn't tape because I felt it was ethically less questionable to wait however long it takes for the DVDs and/or videos to be legally available? Because I didn't tape them, either.

I'm thinking about saving the last few episodes and watch one every year on christmas. That way I can look forward to new episodes and it will always be a great event when I watch them. But I'm afraid that i'm too impatient to go through with that.

we just don't like people talking about where and how to get episodes in non legal ways and also no talking about swapping non legal files, etc. just mentioning the word in passing isn't going to get you killed.

I plan to buy all the dvds and watch them in a continuous loop intermittently drinking myself into oblivion until I forget everything and can watch it all again for what will seem like the first time. Of course this will mean sacrificing family, friends and my job but at least I am keeping things in perspective (unlike that wacko Smitty -joke-). Of course once my life is completely destroyed I can just sue FOX and make it all better.

I'm having about twenty people over to my house for a "Futurama Funeral". I've sent out invitations with a picture of Bender with "X"s for his eyes, and on the back each of them was a unique frame grab featuring a death related gag (Bender lying in his coffin, Fry holding Seymour, Fry in his coffin, Prof's Skeleton from AOI1, etc.). I've got a Robonoarah (See: "Fear of a Bot Planet" ) and am going to put up pictures of Dead Bender with things like "REMEMBER ME" and "RIP FUTURAMA" written beneath them. Before "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings" airs we will watch "A Pharaoh to Remember" in honor of the late Futurama. Afterwards we will have dinner, delivered pizza (spluh!). Besides that... I don't know, probably cuss at FOX a lot.

Oh, and turn off the TV. When Futurama's over, I think I'll turn off the TV.

EDIT: People said I was dumb, but I proved them!

I'd love to say that I'd fly over to the USA to kill all humans (in the Fox boardroom) whilst extremely drunk on malt liquor; or sit and imagine new episodes until they seem like they're real; or sit and play my DVDs on repeat play and convince myself it's not over.

But I'll probably just feel mildly disappointed and hope something else comes along.

Futurama is the alpha and omega of great television.  There are few shows that could even come close to calling themselves "original" or, as I like to say, "Futuramaesque".  I think I'll get a couple cases of Slurm, get the 50lb bag of Bachelor Chow, fill the whole thing with water, and not stop gorging until I've finished.  My wife will have a crazy mess to clean up.  Nothing new there.

I will turn off the T.V. I will laugh, I will cry. I will curse Fox for the umptinth time. Then, I shall sit there, wait for August 12th, go buy season 2. Then, I shall watch S2. Then, I shall wait for S3 and S4. Then, I shall hope for a movie. And then we'll see what happens next.

It depends if the episode makes all my work in progress defunct - if not, yes it'll be a shame but I'll happily watch the old ones from time to time. If it does bugger up all my work in progress - then I'll really cry.

Sad sad very sad but true.

I've already lived through this - seeing the end of the only shows on TV I ever really cared about - twice in the last few months.  I watched the last episode of Farscape, and I watched the last episode of Buffy.

After next Sunday, my TV will serve little purpose except (1) provide background noise, (2) be a dust magnet and (3) serve as my DVD player's monitor.

I will be a little sad, but not devestated.  S2 is released here a week later (here in the US), with S3 and S4 coming out next year.  Cartoon Network will be showing all 72 episodes starting this Fall, and who knows, Cohen and Groening may pull the occasional special out of their hat for a year or two.

No matter what - I will always have 72 episodes, 26.4 hours, 1584 minutes of Futurama available to me.

In 6 years, I'll watch "Fear of a Bot Planet", "The Problem With Popplers", "Amazon Women in the Mood", or "Spanish Fry" (so shoot me - I thought it was hilarious) and laugh.

What a flood of eloquence this topic has unleashed.  I want to do all of the above.

Payn, you ought to get a title.  How  about "Rantmeister"?

Anarchist reminds us that we can make more, if we have the desire, talent, and time.  I've seen ample evidence of the first two.

Damitol, I had to wipe away a tear.  Not just you.

Damicol..  yeah that really pissed me off. What is the point in showing a really long-running series like Farscape only to finish it without a proper ending?! Duh! That was a really good show, even better than Star Trek in my opinion (all series) but now I know it will end on a stupid cliffhanger with no closure, I don't see the point in watching the rest of the episodes. And yet, Sci Fi keep making that pile of crap Stargate SG. Grrrr!! Has the world gone mad?! And on Buffy, at least that had an episode to finish  the series off indefinitely, unlike Farscape, which will forever be left in Limbo. I wonder if Futurama will suffer the same fate after Devil's Hands... hmm.. we'll see..

Wow, a Charlie Brown reference!  Hahah...

Once that final episode is done, I'll sit in silence and watch the credits roll by (even if they're blocked by another Banzai ad   mad ), then turn off my TV, walk to the computer, and share my thoughts with the rest of you here.

It's gonna be a sad day, but shortly afterwards Season 2 comes out, so that'll ease the blow.
