Yeah they really need something for their Sunday lineup. This Sunday has:

King of the Hill 7-8
Simpsons 8-9
Malcolm 9-10

I mean half those are reruns, and only one of the shows is remotely good.

TOTPD! :laugh:

One of my friends was in America when the pilot aired in March 1999, and he came back and told me all about it and how brilliant this Futurama show was. So when the pilot aired in September 1999 over here in the UK, I decided to watch it to see what my friend was obsessed about.   <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Needless to say, I soon saw what!

I didn't watch all of them on their first airing, not because I didn't want to but sometimes my parents were watching something else or I was out, but I saw as many as I could and I now have all 4 DVD box sets.

Nope. Just got into it about a year and a half ago when I saw "Hell Is Other Robots" on Cartoon Network.

Yes, they're allowed. PEEL Faq, scrool about half way down and there'll be an explanation how to use sigs.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

Thanks Teral, I had the same question actually.

I saw the ads for the show and the first few episodes;I saw maybe 8 of the first 12 I think. Being a large football fan I am ashamed to say that it was my favortie sport that helped to trash this series' chances. That prempting caca just ruined it, I missed so many shows due to the crazy scheduling.

I got hooked on Everquest sometime after that so for about 2 1/2 years I lost track of time completely. I eventually detoxxed and started watching/collecting anime. They were showing Witch Hunter Robin on AS on Cartoon Network and they were at the point where they were doing episodes that I did not have so I started watching CN,which I normally would never do. In case y'all didn't know they had Futurama airing right before WHR... I started watching it again and boy did that bug bite HARD... I have the seasons 1-3 on DVD now. I can't believe I forgot about this truly great show. The Lord works in mysterious ways...

I must admit I did not know about this show at all becouse it wasn't said much over here when the 1st season ended. I first heard about it at a friends place where he had it on video and after awhile I got bored so I decied to watch just one as no one was around. I got hooked as soon as it started. I wanted it so badly that he gave me his so I would be quiet. (don't worry he got more later)

After I found that there was commentary on DVD's, I brought S1 of Futurama now I got all 4 on DVD and are still going through them.

I still got the old tapes from my friends as well

Have to say it's been one of my favourite shows since it was first aired, i didn't become obsessed until i bought the third season though and when Australia finally got futurama merchandise, how can you resist any of it.

Sadly, I became addicted after the show was cancelled. My friend had some of the DVDs, and I annoyed the crap out of him by watching them over and over again. After that I was addicted.

Fan since the pilot, but uninterested parents and unfortunate viewing times meant that I could barely watch it. Now I've got a DVD player and Broadband, I'm properly hooked, and can confuse my friends with a quotation for any occasion.

Hey - first post (long time lurker). Anyway...

I saw the very first airing of the first episode, and I remember thinking "This show is ok." I never really saw it again until my friend got me Season 1 on DVD last year. One day I popped it in and within 2 days I had watched the entire thing. Now I watch it every night and the DVD's pretty often to.

BTW I'm buying a portable DVD player today - a main reason for the purchase being Futurama on the go!

I've always been a big Simpsons fan, and when i saw the ads of it and heard it was from Matt Groening, I decided to watch it and i've loved it ever since, but sadly, they stopped showing it on TV in Australia after season 2 (luckily i have cable which is where i saw the Season 3 episodes but i haven't seen 4 or 5 yet).

Id been a sipsons fan for a wile, but one show wasnt enough, i wnated more comedy animations, so i watched King of the hill and south park but they still didnt fill the void finally the Sci-Fi aspect of futurama made me complete

I was with it from about day -60!!
Ever since I saw an article in the Irish Times about it with that infamous Fry and Leels on a sky-scooter, I knew it'd be great.
Then before I saw the pilot on Sky 1, I downloaded a crappy quality clip of Fry doing the "7654321Blastoff!" bit from Episode II!

Ironically my family moved to Hong Kong right when Futurama was about to start airing on SkyOne in the UK.

I caught episodes online in 2000 but didn't get truly addicted till about October last year.

I'm with Faze, except replace "Irish Times" with "Wired magazine."  I was following the hype before the show even started.  The pilot was a big deal for me.

I've been watching it since the beginning but I wasn't particulary Impressed at first. But I gave it a chance to find its feet and I seemed to enjoy the show more and more each season.
