What is really annoying about this article is that she thinks she speaks for everybody. It's not up to moralizing busy bodies to decide what's best for other people.
Also, if she thinks Futurama has bad language, bad humour, and gratitous violence, there are a lot worse shows than Futurama. The Simpsons itself recently has become a large blood-fest and a lot more violent than it used to be. I'd hate to imagine what this woman thinks of South Park...  roll eyes

Whats the deal with complaining about a show?
Have they got nothing better to do?
Did it really make thier CRAP lives much more worse off?

That kind of happened to me actually.  I've always thought Futurama was the superior show, but used to watch Family Guy ravenously back in its last season on Fox.  And I bought the first dvd and really enjoyed it.  But somewhere along the line...I dunno, I just somehow lost most of my interest in it.  I still watch it every so often, buts its clear to me that it might not have lasting appeal.

As for this AS message board douchebag, who cares.  Its just his opinion (however wrong he may be) and judging by the ratings Futurama isn't leaving Adult Swim anytime.  Although I have to admit it always bugs me when people say "Family Guy is better".

EDIT: And WOW, those epinion people are really idiots.  Whatever happened to simply switching off the tv when your kids are around?  I know kids are going to sneak some things, but is it really that hard to monitor what your kids are watching?

And that's terrible, Miss Bender.  Clearly this calling someone a "feminist" for having any kind of opinion shows that he isn't worth listening too.

Having investigated further, I'd like to put some of the blame on epinions, for putting Futurama in the kids' section. These dumb jerkwads obviously saw the front cover, thought "Ohh, cartoon = kids' show" and never even considered the content. Fools.  mad

I've tried to put these wrongs to rights, but I suspect the dumb author woman will never look at that review again.

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

You guys are all just taking the words right out of my mouth.

And getting back to what Hedonism Bot said a while ago:

...it's not intended for a young audience, so the language and situations can change accordingly. That's why the DVD packs are rated 12 in the UK. If you are talking about the nation's children, then cancelling Futurama won't make a bit of difference - it'll just create a generation of embittered delinquents. This is, of course, assuming that Futurama is the cause of wide-spread hooliganism and general depravity.

That woman is talking about violence in the whole world and thinks cancelling Futurama will make a difference! I'd just like to draw your attention to the fact that even though in the US it may be rated PG-13 or whatever, and in the UK it's rated 12/PG, there are loads of countries like France where it's not rated at all, and it isn't like they're living in their own world of terror and violence because of it. This woman doesn't understand that by hiding real life from people she's making things worse, and she's the person who's making bad language bad because she's the one who gets so easily offended by it.

pwor okay i'm finished.     big grin
