I'd prefer a new Groening show to Futurama coming back because everything he's done so far has been brilliant and there's no reason to think that the new show would be any different.

Hmm Mildly good point but Futurama and a new show'd be better! How about a Zoidberg spinoff series!

So there is also no reason to think that new episodes of Futurama (which we all want) wouldnt be brilliant as well.

Indeed, I concur.

While a new Groening cartoon would be good, I think I will stick with Futurama, I love the characters and the setting too much.

And who knows, the cartoon might suck bigtime, making a Futurama comeback even more unlikely.

Liberal Daughter with a Conservative Father?

 For pities sake. The entire comedy premise of All in the Family was that the conventional roles were reversed - conservative youth and liberal parents - the opposite of that is just plain banality.

Besides the matter was best covered in Yes Minister for a start.

Apart from the alien that sounds like the most spurious and unimaginative premise for a series I've ever heard.

The hell?  Have you ever even seen All in the Family?  Maybe you're thinking of Family Ties.

As much as I'd like more Futurama I'd really hate if if came back in low-quality. It'd be nice to see Groening try something new, new themes bring new ideas. One thing though, as a Life in Hell fan I'd hate to see that animated, it's always risky to bring in voices to pre-existing characters.

i agree. when you are used to how a character sounds, it is hard to make a voice for it.

Dilbert was supposed to have a bland voice.  He's a bland guy.

Anyway, I love that show for casting Larry Miller as the pointy-haired boss, and Jason Alexander as the evil Mr. Catbert.

I think because of Simpsons getting lamer every season there have to be a change, I would love to see the Simpsons characters age. Besides I would prefer new Futurama episodes ^^

@ cromble:

I could talk all day about decline in quality, and such, but instead I'll just briefly state my feelings...

I agree that The Simpsons showed a steady decline in seasons 9-12, but in my opinion, it has rebounded. Actually, season 15 (this past season) is the best since the golden-age (seasons 1-8).

The characters can't age, either. Besides the fact that it's illogical, that would completely destroy the show. I mean, it has survived for 15 years without much major change; why ruin it now? Also, Matt Groening and others have directly stated that the characters were never intended to, and never will, age.

And, I'm sure most of us would love more Futurama, although preferably a movie. That way, we could still have the complete series, as well as what would probably be a great film. Not too shabby, huh?...

And, I don't mean to sound hostile towards you or your opinions, cromble. So please don't take offense. Welcome to PEEL, by the way.

I heard that they're thinking of having Bart turn 11 in the final episode.

Really? Creepy! Wouldn't it be a kick in the ass to all the fans if he turned 20-something all of a sudden? You know, his real age.

I'm pretty sure he was joking.  But that rumor is false.

Someone (Mike Reiss?  I'm not sure, but it sounds like him) once suggested that the movie would have "Bart losing his virginity".  Also a joke of course, but he clarified it as a joke later.

I understand your opinion, Gorky. It was simply my 'wish', to see what happens when Lisa and Bart are adults (or rather what they become), and there will be no consequence of my opinion, either.
Season 15 didn't run here in Germany by now, last saturday the last episode of season 14 was shown, so I can't say anything about that.

Just watch "Lisa's Wedding" or "Bart to the Future".

Your wish is granted.  Long live Jambi.

Although I suggest "Lisa's Wedding", seeing as how "Bart to the Future" was so awful.

Well then, I see you're point. Season 14 was nothing to write home about. I'm sure you'll love season 15 once you get around to seeing it.

By the way, American Dad was picked up for midseason.  It premieres 30 minutes after the Super Bowl (The Simpsons airs before American Dad).  When Fox makes it's huge schedule change in February it will air at 9:30 after the GOOD AD, Arrested Development.

I really doubt Futurama would come back in low quality. It was still in its early days when it ended so they had tons and tons of fresh ideas still floating around...maybe after another 15 years though we'd be ready for something else. And i don't like to think about it, but by then Groening would be getting on a bit  cry ...but even though Billy West would be about sixty-five, i'm sure he'd still have his young young voice   laff

I keep going back and forth on this, thinking it'd be good or bad if it came back. I think I really would want it to come back and if it was bad at least my favorite people would be employed doing something they enjoy. Just that would make me happy.

I agree. Back in 1999, MG said he wanted to animate Binky, SHeba, Bongo, Jeff and Akbar for TV.

So...why hasn't he? It's hard for me to get the comics, so I would totally watch a show. Probably no one likes him anymore (*cough* Fox *cough*) Which doesn't bode well for our Futurama...  frown

A Futurama spin-off in which Dr. John Zoidberg leaves his life in New New York and moves to Seattle to host his own radio medical talk show.  However his new life is turned upside down when his uncle Harold Zoid is kicked out the retirement home and comes to live with Zoidberg.

The show also stars Zoidfarb, Zoidberg's snooty cousin, who falls in love with Heather, Harold Zoid's Neptunian Youthasizer.  Rounding off this impreesive emesmble cast is Phoebe, the sexy producer of Zoidberg's radio show.
