This is not meant to be a download topic, don't start asking for adresses.
For myself: I saw like 5 episodes on tv, then fox stopped broadcasting it and half a year later I discovered they were available on the net  big grin big grin.

I have recorded the entire 2 frists seasons, I only have downloaded the 3rd season because here it still hasen't been aired. I've watched approx. 5 times each episode (I don't wanna get bored of it).

By the way, downloading ALL the episodes is a hard task...

As a general rule I record them and watch later, I just wish Fox would release them for sale on video.

Futurama is the best, so I watch them live, and record them at the same time for my own private collection.

2 for me.

I've never seen the pilot until yesterday when I found it on the net and downloaded it. 3 hours!!! It took three hours, but maybe thats normal, I don't know, but it diffently cools down the interest. Ah well, good thing I have the rest on VCR, sort of.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

I have most episodes downloaded, and watch them that way.  I plan on watching the 4th season live though, whenever that is gonna be.  I watch them on my PC because I just heard of Futurama for the first time about a month ago.  With a T3 connection, downloads don't take all that long.

I just watch them on TV.  When I watch stuff too often I got bored of it, thats why Futurama seems so groovy, cos I dun think I've seen any of them more than 2 (or maybe 3) times.  I was thinking of getting the season one box set the other day but.... usually box sets cost a bomb.

I watch them when I feel very lonely and when my life sucks, because the episodes makes me laugh... (well, I'm not that lonely all the time so lately there's not been that much viewing)
Maybe I should start to see them all again

I download each new episode, then when they premiere on TV over here in the UK I watch, while recording, then usually watch again later. Heck, I even watch repeats!

I would tape them but I dun have enuff cassettes to put them all on...  Plus I don't want whole libraries of videos of the same program... Perhaps if they released videos like the Simpsons did that just had four episodes all following some sort of theme rather than big box sets with the whole series on, I'd buy them...

I don't know for you technically advanced nations but here in germany you actually can buy a bundle of futurama-episodes in a rather beautiful collection-box - unfortunately i only own a dvd-player and they're unable to come up with this collection on dvd  frown

I think it's Germany.. I think it's 'dubbed' (mabybe), and i think it's because a lot of theme don't know english, and the fact that there is a lot of them!

Started downloading the episodes in September '00, and have been updated every time Fox have aired an episode since. I hate what TV2 did to Futurama when they started airing the episodes with subtitles, misspelling the names (Lela, Kiff Croaker, Zap and so on), translating completely wrong from time to time, which naturally screwed up the jokes, and so on. So I only watched the first 7 episodes on TV, even though it was more comfortable than sitting in front of a computer monitor.

Me too, sort of... Started in 1999.. summer, and then i got up to date in the middle of season 2, and then i downloaded one episode within a week after air.. and when i was finished with all 44, they started sending them here.. doesn't that just suck!

Oh dear oh dear oh dear.  They don't really do that do they?  That is poor... if they're going to subtitle it they could at least do a proper job of it...  no no

I watch, record, and download them.

I have all the episodes and video and I downloaded Season 3on my computer, I only have three season 2 episodes on computer. I only downloaed the new episodes as soon as they first shown on Fox. that's what I'm going to do when Season 4 is going to be shown on Fox soon.

I started recording in September 2000, and I started downloading in November 2000.

I downloaded all the 3 seasons, and I recorded the 2 first seasons. Now I am recording again because Antena 3 is airing the season 3 now.

I saw the first two episodes in TV, then downloaded every other episode. I have mostly DivX, some RealVideos, a couple of MPEGs... from a variety of sources, HTTP, FTP, IRC, WinMX, whatever. This is for several reasons: First, dubbing in latin america sucks bigtime. I wanna see it in the original klingon. Second, episodes take a long while to get in here (season 3 is still months away) and I need to see the latest episodes in order to keep The Leela Zone updated (though I haven't updated for a while, back when episodes aired I was updating regularly). And third, related to second: I need the videos in the computer if I'm going to extract grabs, sounds, and make scans of the episode. And since I don't have a video capture card, downloading them is my best (and only) option, even if it takes over thirty hours to download an MPEG, ten hours for a DivX and five hours for a RealVideo (my connection's speed).

I'm trying to download the new ones, because our pathetic channel 7 here in Aus isn't showing them... What makes it worse is that I've got modem Internet, AND a 425 MB download limit! Oh, vanity my name is Proffessor Farnes- er, Sour  smile. And 3 hours sucks for a 35 MB DivX... Pffftooeee.

3 hours for a 35mb file is pretty standard, it takes me about 4 hours to get my eps, but the size and time varies
