Got anything you like to do in particular while watching Futurama, or anything of the sort(I'm going to get some truly predictable responses)? I like to have Kazaa open and then play Futurama through Windows Media Player, turn on some music, and balance out the volumes so they're about equal(this is only for ones I don't have on DVD). Not having music drives me nuts, but same with animation. So what do you do while watching the show? Any rituals?

nope. when i watch Futurama the show has my complete undivided attention. I may pet my cat randomly, if one of them comes up and asks for attention, but that's all.

Sometimes I post on PEEL while watching Futurama.  In fact, I'm doing that right now.

About the same as Venus and Actionlapoint, I pet the cat if its around or I just get comfy with a cup of tea and maybe one of Hermes cigars.

I play on my PC sometimes, nothing too involving though, like the Sims.

We must be twins.

Well, except for the nationality and Leela/Amy thing.

i sometimes just watch it but most of the time im either playing about on macromedia flash, trying to make a cartoon worth watching or i quite often go to sleep with season 2 on. A classic series.

I sit on my bunk-bed, eating mini-doughnuts right before it starts, then my eyes are glued to the screen until it's over. The house could explode and the Sun could engulf Earth, but (if I were still alive) I'd still keep watching.

I tend to do homework which requires mindless repetitive actions while watching Futurama, like front covers for projects. Speaking of which, I'm supposed to be finishing a project right now.

If it's an episode I've seen recently I might write, work or surf the internet at the same time but usually it's just futurama, a glass of coke and my insomnia.

Usually I won't be doing anything.  On seasons 1 and 2, I usually have it on when I fall asleep, actually...  But otherwise, I just watch it.  Season 3, being new, won't be watched while I'm falling asleep for awhile.  Like until I know all the good jokes by heart.

I'm a conscientious objector.

What's a little thing like nationality between friends?

And isn't it better if you like Leela and I like Amy, instead of us fighting over the same girl?

I love to have it on as background noise when I'm doing something tedious, like homework.  This could, however, be the reason it takes me 6 hours to write a 2 page paper...

I usually sit on the lounge and watch it while eating, or doing nothing else....

If I'm on the computer and my brother is watching it, I'll occasionally glance over and laugh but I can't concentrate and do both.... hmpf

Now this is why I don't do most of my homework.

I have a fort I usually watch Futurama in. It's just some cushions and pillows jumbled together with a couple of chairs, but is so damn comfortable. My "Futurama Fort."

I just watch Futurama in a Lazy Boy recliner, and sometimes with popcorn.   tongue

No Lazyboy session is complete without a few beers in the fridge compartment in the arm. I just hope I have enough energy to get another beer.
