My sister and I love the show.  It's something we watch together!  We also like South Park, too.  Our parents hate those shows.  They think we're obsessed with them.

I have a friend who likes it, and at least three friends who I have converted from being neutral to liking it a lot. I am the biggest fan of them all though, plus none of them have a favourite character like me  wink

Everyone loves Futurama. They just don't know it yet.

Me and my brother used to watch the show together. But then he moved out.

Is that a Discworld Noir reference I spot? Also i know about two people who like futurama, i.e. they've watched all the episodes, but they aren't as obsessed as us. I know two people who are neutral also.

I have some Fututrama stuff decorating my school stuff. People'll say, "That show is really good" or "I love that show". Though I doubt any of them are obsessed as I, I don't know any one who dislikes the show. Though many haven't heard of it.

It's weird.  Before college it practically felt like I was the only person  in the world who watches Futurama.  Then I got to college, and found lots of people watch it on Adult Swim.  So, that was a really good thing.  Oh yeah, also my little sister watches Futurama, basically because I was watching it, so she started watching it.  She's not as obsessed with the show as I am, although she likes it a ton.

I have a couple friends that like the show, but aren't really as into it as I am.  My younger brother likes Futurama about as much as I do, and the rest of my family "appreciates" it.  That is to say, they watch it when I do, and think it is funny, but not much more than that.

Are you implying that you're not?   no no

Anyway, my friend watches it sometimes, and so does another. The first one partly because I threaten him if he doesn't hail Zoidberg.   tongue

Most people I know have seen about 1-5 episodes, but I was fortunate enough to hook a few friends, and my brother and mom, on it.

Some people I know say they've seen around 60-70, but they don't even know what Leela or Fry's names are and the names of even their favorite episodes.

You are talking about Mike... his favorite episode was Bendin' In The Wind and he didn't even know that. Sad, sad shell of a kid.

Luckily, having seen 71 episodes, I can name any episode with a few clues  big grin

I don't really know anyone who's into it as much as I am. I remember a time in school when I talked with a friend about the Slurm Factory episode, but that's about the most interaction I've had yet.

 However, I'm doing a Media Studies coursework project on Futurama, so hopefully I can arouse the interest of a few classmates while I'm at it.  smile

One coworker watched it casually during its original run.  Other than that, nobody.  Just you lovable freaks.

me and my friend had a sleep over once, and, once again, we're only kids. we watched futurama and now she really likes the show    wink. 10/3/03, i found out that this kid at school named eric Monzel likes the show. everybody else except  my friend and i have no idea what the show is considering it's an elementary school with all these little kids flooding the place. i sure wish jounior high came in the 5th grade.

My sister doesn't like it. In fact, she refuses to watch any episode - although she likes the Simpsons. Weird.

A couple of my friends enjoy the show, but none of them as much as I do. Probably because they haven't watched it as much (thanks a lot, Focks).

All of my friends at school like it, almost as much as me. One i know of did visit PEEL briefly after watching Crimes of the hot, to remind the rest of us of the Morbo classic in that episode  smile But he wasn't here for very long, he was a one-post wonder  smile

Other than that :
Parents - Never seen it, i don't think
Other 'Relies' - Most watch it (Or at least, used to when it was on at a sane time), don't know of thier specific opinions though...

Well I, my roommate, my dad, and several of my friends watch it, with one more trying it out, and I know someone who did character layouts on the show for three years.  I convert as many people as I can.  wink

persephohi, that's way cool that you know someone who worked on the show!

One friend from our local Star Wars club also is into it bigtime.

I actually knew her before she worked on the show, so it was doubly cool when she got the job.  She's got one piece of Leela art that she did in her spare time still up on her page (I think she used to have more but she cleans her older stuff out a lot).  http://aimeemajor.com/images/portfolio/misc/lleela2.jpg

All the family and friends, really. And since I just started Uni, I've met loads of others who like it. Since i'm taking animation, most people in my class seem to like it. This started when somebody noticed the Futurama wallpaper on my desktop in class. All the people in my flat like it too. The Frenh girl in my flat (I don't know how to write her name) was in my room looking through my DVD/CD wallet. She asked what Futurama was, I lent her a DVD, and now she's borrowed and watched them all. Just a few minutes ago I was at the Computer help desk and the guy  who was sorting out my laptop saw the wallpaper and started chatting about it. I think that anyone who has actually watched the show likes it. But thanks to Fox not enough people even know about it.

Most people I know have watched at least one episode because it used to be on in Australia at 8:00pm on Fridays. However, since the show has returned, hardly anyone watches it anymore due to it's crappy timeslots. McSeason 3 and most of McSeason 4 was aired at 10:30pm on Monday or Thursday, and McSeason 5 is being aired at 11:30pm on Tuesdays!

If only people gave the show a chance...  frown

Pretty much all my friends and people I hang around like Futurama.  When Adult Swim started showing it I had people quoting it to me like, every day(since I'm the resident Simpsons and Futurama nerd at my school essentially), and that trend more or less continues today.  My sister also really likes it and watches whenever I do.  Parents also will watch with my occasionally (Mom really liked Luck of the Fryrish, and Dad really likes Bender).
