I live in what you would call a 'faraway country' so i downloaded my first episode. The reason for this is that i was looking for simpsons eps and every single site had futurama too.. so i tried the pilot.. and it kicked ass!!! So my first impression was as good as a first impression could get i think!!!!

...and they still kick ass!!!!

Of course it was....Futurama is the king of shows!

I discoverd it when looking for South Park or Simpsons ep to download with a friend. My three first ep was : "Space Pilot 3000", "I, Roommate", "A Big Piece of Garbage".

I liked it so much...so much....I can`t wait until season 4 arrives!!!!!!!

My first impression was: "What's that, any crazy ep from the Simpsons??" - Later I checked the teletext   smile it was Futurama, ep 2. "Futurama, what's that?? Seems interesting..."

After that I started to search info on the net, later I started to download episodes... and now I can't live without Futurama!!   big grin

The first futurama I saw, I walk in the room & 5 seconds later see a brick drop out of a robot's ass, & I knew it was meant to be.

I liked the first episode... Nothing special. Second one was better, as it had better drawings and voices in my opinion. I was kinda surprised that cheap assed Prime bought it instead of the allmighty Ten which has the Simpsons. (Prime not showing Futurama for AGES!) Yeah.

I saw the first show and thought it wasn't bad.... not great, and not as funny as the Simpsons.... but still worth watching.  Then I kind of got sucked in... I never liked it as much as I used to like the Simpsons, but its still one of my favourite shows to date.

For some reason I remember it being on after the Super Bowl.  Unless I'm totally nuts.  I'll ask my brother if he remembers, 'cause he saw it, too.

I watched Space Pilot 3000 when it first aired on terestrial in the UK & I loved it. I already saw some clips from that episode in the adverts before the program aired & I was interested with new new york & those tubes & knowing it was from Matt Groening I knew it would be good.
 After I'd seen the first ep I was hooked & hoped It would maintain it's excellence & it did.

I was a major Simpsons fan (Homers still my father-figure role model   smile )

Then I saw a bit about Futurama In the paper, I thought Leela looked HOT, so I thought i give it a look.

Man was I right, she was HOT, that first glimpse of her in SP3000, mmmmmmmmmmmmm.

I was then and there.    smile

P.S. I still think she's HOT    smile

Yeah I'll go with DRH -

I heard Matt Groening and Futurama in the same sentence, watched it, and loved it. The show was and still is very clever to me.

Also, I remember seeing The Simpsons and first Family Guy episode after the Super Bowl.

First of all: I live in Germany!
Well, it started the first time I saw a bender pic. It was on a Half-Life-Modelingpage in the preview section. He looked really cool and kind of gentle  smile
And then later the year a friend of mine said he marian i've got a cool cd with the sequel series to the simpsons! its really cool... he got the cd from a friend who downloaded it. So I borrowed the cd and watched some eps. Tey were ugly 220-real movies nd on the one cd I had the whole first season and about the half 2nd. I didn't get all the jokes but I liked the charakters from the beginning. By watching more and more eps I got to know the charakters more. Today I just LOVE them and since the german translation kills the best jokes and weakens the charaketers I got every singe ep in 220MB-mpeg on about 16 cds  big grin

When I first saw the Super Bowl commercial for Futurama I knew I had to watch it.  Knowing it was from the creator of the Simpsons and the clip was funny I marked the date in my mind.  When I saw the episode I was dazzled and I enjoyed it.  Did I love the show?  No not really.  I thought Fry's voice was weird and I couldn't stand Bender's voice.  But the humor (the suicide booth) in the show stood out and I knew I would continue watching it.  I missed a few episodes after the pilot because I kept forgetting about it.  But after awhile I become hooked with the show.  Now the show I once thought was a neat show with terrible voice acting is my favorite show ever.  I

Saw Matt Groening plugging the show on BBC2, saw Futurama commercial on C4. Saw some Futurama. Taped some Futurama to watch later.

Now the tapes are all that keeps me going until the next TV aired episode.

Pardon the quoting of something 3 months old.... but I figured I'd point this out, so you all know that Nix is my fault.

I loved the idea of it from the very beginning. I saw one or four episodes, but my viewing really took off when I got to school. Made Nix watch some of it, of course I didn't download episodes. Cough cough. I've been a big supporter since the beginning, it's just that tv viewing isn't a big thing for me. I don't go out of my way to find a tv and watch it at a certain time, so I miss lots of good stuff.

I remember I heard that a channel was showing a new serie from the creator of The Simpsons, that's all I knew then. I began watching it and though well, it looks very Simpons like but the second Bender came into the story I was hooked. He must be the funniest cartoon character I have ever seen..

I've watched since the first episode; Bender's "Bite my shiny metal "a"-word" was my first indicator that the show would be a bit more adult-oriented than the Simpsons. It is a "semi-dark" sci-fi show - the future is not as bright and cheerful as that of the Jetsons but not as bleak as Planet of the Apes. It is my only "can't miss" show.

I remember anticipating the premiere and when it finally came on, you know I was there. I was hooked. I just loved the fact it kept me laughing. I guess I lked it a lot at first because watching Fry's expressions was very entertaining. But after the third episode, I stopped watching it. I dunno, I was on stupid pills. Then I got addicted in the middle of season two. There.

The first I heard about it, I read it in the TV Guide and had a pic of some of the Planet Express crew doing various antics. I thought Prof. Fansworth was gonna be an evil guy. Well he LOOKED evil to me in that picture! I saw Space Pilot 3000, thought the Simpsons was better. Now though, I know Futurama has found a place in my heart.

I knew it was gonna be nothing like the Jetsons, and it was created by Matt Groening, so I gave it a go. If it was just a sitcom about a 31st century family living in a space-needle-like building, I wouldn't care.

Due to my Extremly high expectations, I was a little bit disappointed when I saw the first episode. But I taped it and all the following episodes. After a few episodes, I got hooked, and now I watch a couple of episodes almost every day, and I like it, I like it a lot.

Yay I've *bumped* a 2 year old thread BAM....!
My first impressions were hell yeah this show is great....! I loved it from day one when I saw the pilot ep, I loved the jokes the characters, the plot just the whole premise of it....

I was worried it was gonna be like the Simpsons but after seeing the pilot that was soon discarded  tongue
Before Futurama I was a huge Simpsons fan and I still was and have only just recently become bored with it....it's just "meh" these days....

I never missed an ep and I still have them all on tape....I'm dribbling now so I'll stop....

My first impression of Futurama - sitting in an Italian hotel room watching Futurama in German   smile

...and then revisiting those episodes I saw in German, and realising the plot was completly different to what I had assumed it was!

I was excited about the new "Simpsons" when I heard about it.  They did a lot of magazine and TV ads.  I loved Matt Groening's "Life In Hell" series and subsequently the Simpsons.  I watched the first episode and thought it was great but then missed the second.  I watched a bunch of eps on and off for a while but I could never find the damn things!  I don't watch TV very much anyway so it angered me that a show that was very entertaining was so hard to get a hold of.  After a while, I forgot about it.  Then, I watched a new ep, uh, TWOF I think, and I realised everything I missed!  Slap me silly!

Damn you all! We can't get season 3 for a millions years in the US!  WAHH!

I also watched SP3000 when it first aired. To be honest, although I liked it, I wasn't blown away or anything - The Simpsons were still by far my favourite show at the time. I watched a few more episodes over time, but due to the lack of advertising and not knowing when they aired, I lost interest.

Then one day I started watching the show again on FOX (This was during The Simpsons' decline), and suddenly I found it a lot funnier. As I watched more and more, I became almost obsessed. The cast, the humour, the feeling of 'belonging' in a strange amazing world, were all amazing. I don't believe Futurama ever provided the sheer laughs of Family Guy or season 3-7 Simpsons (though it came close), but it has made me feel more emotion than any other animated show I've ever watched, which is why right now it is my #1 choice. I'm currently looking for a job whose main reason is being able to buy a DVD player and the Futurama DVDs...

saw the pilot
thought it was a little too sappy and not as funny as simpsons.and thought frys voice was a bit annoying

buti thought it would improve over time as it was still had to introduce everything.

i thought it improved as the series went on.
and through every series that followed

i dont think it matched family guy and simpsons
at its best though,

I remember knowing about Futurama from the first day it was announced on TV, and they were showing some scenes from the pilot, the one where leela asks for backup, and the one where fry gets all happy cause he wont see anyone again... and I loved them... I couldnt wait... then the big day came, and I saw the pilot... and I didnt like it at all... so I stoped watching Futurama, but when I moved to Mexico for Uni, I started remembering about the shows I couldnt see anymore (cause Mexico shows them in spanish) so I ask my sister to tape them, and send them via mail, and she asked what I wanted... I told her to tape the simpsons, and whatever else she thought was cool, so I got my first tape, with some simpsons episodes, and it had a few futuramas.... all I needed was the "series has landed" to be a FAN forever.

I have to admit I never heard of it until CN brought it along. I couldn't sleep one night so I watched it being I love CN, and I fell in love with it after watching "Put Your Head On My Shoulder"- my first ep.  Haven't missed it ever since.

My first impression was "funny as hell,, good animation". It wasn't until later that I learned how deep it was, with parasites lost. i just thought it was a comedy/ sci fi until then. then i realized this show is more emotional and you can learn stuff from it.

Then I got obsessed, urged to go on the net for it, looked up sites and crap only o cry when informed that it had been cancelled.

I first heard about Futurama when it was on the Guardian (UK newspaper) 'Guide' supplement cover.  I looked at the faces of Fry, Leela and Bender and thought "I *know* I'm going to like this"   smile

I downloaded the firsst episode in English before the series aried in FOX Latin America. The jokes were excellent, but when I saw the same episode in Spanish I was a little disappointed because the translation missed and still misses a lot of jokes.
I also think I started TFP before the series aried in  FOX LA but I'm not completely sure...

Well, I saw a commercial for it at the superbowl, first thoughts? "That's gonna bomb. It'll never live up to almighty Simpsons. But I want to watch it."

Yeah that does sound a bit strange but anyway, then March came and I sat to watch "Space Pilot 3000".  In all honesty, I liked it, but didn't think it was "simpsons" which I realized after viewing "Series Has Landed" and "I, Roommate" this wasn't supposed to BE another "Simpsons". It was it's own original, very clever and also very funny show, that also after viewing those three, I started enjoying it more than the crappy "Simpsons" Fox was shoving down our throats every Sunday night. By the second season, I was hooked, I didn't get to see enough of the third season, because of how poorly it was aired, then I just heard it got cancelled, and didn't even know there were other episodes yet to be seen. Then this year, it debuted on "Adult Swim" and I got hooked again. So hooked, I've gotten Volumes One & Two (Three hasnt come out here yet  frown) and I started watching the episodes on FOX again (you know the new ones this year) and, well, just got plain hooked.

And now I joined PEEL! Hooray!

I always loved movies/shows with freezong and/or the future in them, so I saw "Space Pilot 3000" when it first premiered because I thought it sounded like an interesting idea for a show. When it was over, I think it was the first pilot episode for anything that was actually good. Usually shows seem to have pretty weak pilots compared to later episodes if the show gets picked up, but that episode got me hooked. It was also during that one week when Fox did promote Futurama, you know the week of it's premiere.
