C4 has always been a bit more 'free speech' than Sky One. S1's attitude was 'Futurama's a cartoon and cartoons are for kids', so they cut out some of the 'bastard's and more obvious masturbation references in 'Crustacean in Love' let's hope good ol' C4 keeps 'em in. The one where Nibbler gets flushed is a classic- good Data from Star Trek parody.

If Channel 4 are upto their usual tricks, it'll be pointless watching them as they'll be cut to shreds.  See "A Flight To Remember" as the best example of a good episode totally ruined.

Thanks To Daniela for the new block.
FSAC is not just about my art, it's for the fans, any art or fictions will be gratefully received.  I'm not going to go on forever, so if I stop, then without support the site would stop, wish will be a great shame, since it seems to have some popularity

RETIRED AVATAR KING - hopefully custom rank will return one day

I dont know what u lot are about.  I never noticed that they cut bits in episodes until u said.

I'm just glad that they are bew episodes that I have't seen before, besides if I havn't seen them what bits am I going to know were cut?

Also Channel 4 r pretty non-strict with things likes, I've seen programs that have had swearing on them, that were on in the middle of the day.

Well, if you haven't seen any other version, of course you're not gonna notice the cuts.

Case in point: I didn't see the Simpsons episode "Dumbell Indemnity" until it was in syndication. So, if anything was cut out of it, I wouldn't spot it. Whereas, when I see "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson", the absence of the "Make it out to Jesus, c/o The Pentagon" joke really stands out.

C4 did cut the episodes to shreads, they even cut out Leela saying "Bender are you jacking off in there".
Sky have started cutting the episodes a lot too since it was moved back to 7pm, the word "Bastard" is always cut.
I'm really sick of C4 and Sky, the simple solution is to move it to a later timeslot, southpark has always had a late timeslot so why can't Futurama.
If they are going to cut every episode I would prefer to wait till it comes out on video.

You're in luck, kids. Tuesday, C4, 6pm. Double bill of Futurama: I second that Emotion and Brannagan begin again. Two absolute classic episodes. Enjoy!

It's better when you tape the ep's on video where they not cut. Tape the ep's on Sky1 on Sunday 7pm.
