I cannot stress this enough.  If this is the first time you are reading this thread, read this post, and the replies in their entirity.  That way we don't have to repeat ourselves.  There's a small FAQ I've started to add to the end of this too, now.  (For those of you too lazy to read replies  tongue)

-------------------

There's lots and lots of "Save Futurama" threads.  Even the suggestion that we devote a forum to saving Futurama.

First up, Futurama was cancelled three years ago.  Those just starting to realised that it was cancelled are a bit late.  The lastest petition about this has about 3500 signatories.  There is another with over 8500 signatories. A long time ago we all should have given up.  And most of us have.  But some of us haven't.

While it is admirable that you persist, there is a point where you have to give up.  You can argue all you like about "well true fans of the show never give up, never surrender" (sorry, reference to a movie about another dead sci-fi series), there is a point where your efforts are both pointless and stupid.

The "save futurama" threads and such are no better than threads like these:



Please understand that Futurama is dead.  There isn't much you can do, but if you are feeling productive, bring life to the old FuturamaSeasons project.  Notice how even they, devoted fans who wanted to continue the story, are pretty much dead?

This thread is ment to summarise all these "save futurama" threads.  It's not ment to be a flamefest, but rather set as a central place why "save futurama" threads should not be posted.  Sorry if I got too agnostic about this.  I could be worse.

Updated/Edit: Some extra threads on this, from 2003 onwards:

  • Summary of the success of efforts to get Futurama back
  • Goodbye, Futurama

    Spam threads
    1 2 3 4
    5  6 and probably many many others.  This is from a lazy search in General Discussion alone.

    Another update/edit: Kudos to Rage Dump/Boggy, Mr. Potter, SlackJawedMoron, GermanFryFan, Kyle_M, Lampy and Nix for your support with my arguments, and anyone else supporting this (some of whom probably haven't posted).      smile

    And if you're against this, and think we should be eggbombing FOX HQ, etc. to get Futurama back, please, save me some breath by reading my post entirely.  I notice a lot of those who didn't like what I said skipped that crucial step.  Then, read all the replies, entirely.  Your points may have been already raised and countered, or supported.

    Yet another update: Thanks to Mercepto for giving me the correct link to FuturamaSeasons.  I had to reword it slightly, but it does look fairly dead there, so I can use my original argument.    smile

    FAQ: (Added 16 Aug 2004)
     
    Quote
    Why can't Cartoon Network and Matt just make new eps?  After all, FOX cancelled the show.
    They may have cancelled it, but they still own the rights and intellectual property that is Futurama.  That is how they can sell Futurama stuff still.  When Matt signed on with FOX, ho would have signed an intellectual property disclaimer.

    Don't kill hope, I'm going to start putting anthrax in Rupert's mailbox!  Then we'll see who'll cancel whose favourite show!
    Learn to accept your loss.  Futurama ain't coming back, and "cheating after full time" won't really help it.

     
    Quote
    Hey, what's wrong with getting even with FOX?  Let us have more threads about bringing back Futurama, and more braindead schemes!
    It's all spam.  Yes, you can go and plan these schemes and talk about how much you want Futurama back; I can't stop you.  I'm asking you to kindly take it elsewhere, or don't do it at all.

Giving up is failing before even trying. If that is how you live your life then fine. Some of us still have hope. People are engaged in numerous projects in holywood, meaning, the chances are that even if they are all engaged in other projects now, you can still get most of them back to work on it.
If they ratings were bad and the show was hated I understand. But in Adult Swim its a hit! There is still hope!

Yes, we have tried.  We have tried for almost three years.  And we have failed.  There's a point in any war where one side must accept loss and give up.  And we are that side.

I want Futurama to come back as much as you do, but as stated, there is a point where you should simply face the facts.  See the title of the post (yes, more paraphrasing from a fairly popular movie, which is sorta science fiction).

You just contradicted yourself there.  If they are all involved in other projects, seperated, how can they work on Futurama?  Undoubtly their schedules would be busy on these other projects you speak of.

That's because FOX are more interested in showing the same old junk.  And it's the same old junk that their audience wants.  Adult Swim is a different audience.  So it's going to get different ratings.  However all your base are belong to FOX, so there's little that Cartoon Network can do to continue the show.  What you want is for FOX to continue the show.  They are the only ones who can because of the wonders of intellectual property law and various contracts.

I agree with mic and Rage.

The fact is that we're dealing with FOX, which is a corporation. A corporation is only interested in making money. Lots of money. If something doesn't gives them the amount of money that they want, then they just drop it. That's what hapenned with Futurama. The best thing you can do is to buy all the existing supplies of Futurama DVD's. That way they would make a profit and give aother shot to the show. But who would do that?

First off, Futurama was cancelled ONE year ago, not three.

Second, most of this was a result of AFF. AFF is NOT trying to get Futurama back. AFF is just trying to let Fox know that we are still pissed about the cancellation.

Third, don't kill hope. There is ALWAYS hope, whether you like it or not. You can call me an idiot for hoping if you want to, but I choose to ignore that. Hope is the only thing that keeps people going through difficult times. If my Aunt had given up hope, she would have died years before she did. She had 4 types of cancer, and was in the hospital 3 times before she died. She always said that she got through it by picturing her future. If she had given up all hope, she would have died.

That's how I feel, and your words can't change that.

Noooo, Futurama was cancelled 3 years ago. The last ep aired 1 year ago.

Keep your hope if you wish, just don't spam the hell outta PEEL while you're at it. We don't need 10+ threads devoted to the topic.

Also, I just know that I'm going to be accused of being some sort of elitest prick, but take a look at the people who post in these threads, and then check their rank/date they joined. Notice anything?

*ahem*.  Dated: 12th of Feburary 2002.  Though there are also earlier reports of it being cancelled.  It has no date, however it was before June 2001.  By my count, that's at least three years and one month.

You're showing FOX that you're annoyed about the show's cancellation.  Therefore it is in direct opposition to their decision to cancel Futurama - so the logical conclusion is that you're using it as an indirect means to get the show back.

I've had a family member going through a similar situation.  I know how it feels to see them wasting away in bed, with no hope of getting the treament they need (in this case, it was a lung transplant).  I felt it was unfair that she get this, as she didn't drink, smoke, and she took care of her body; in fact better than most people.

It's okay, infact, great that you all have hope for your aunt's recovery.  Though we're talking about a television show, not a person's life and a family.

Id like to add that although all 4 seasons have been released on dvd in europe the 4th season in america is not released untill August 24th. Is Fox waiting to see what the sale raitings will be before they make a final decision??.

Also, hi everyone been a while since i last post.

I think, I've read somewhere that the FOX-network didn't release the 4th season in the US yet, because they wanted to sqeeze even the last $$$ out of the commercials shown during the reruns. (Only on their network, they don't care about CN)

If you hope to get your show back and act that way, there is a 0.000005% it will come back (well, maybe a little more).
If you give up, its 0.0000%. As long as its not consuming my life, I'd go with hope, thank you.

Mic is now my hero. Futurama is cancelled, there's nothing that can be done. Spamming PEEL with Bring Back Futurama threads definately won't bring it back. Sending anchovies or honey or any other type of Futurama-related food to FOX won't bring it back (and I don't even see the point to be perfectly honest). At this point, high DVD sales won't bring Futurama back, as long as FOX still owns the rights.
 These are just my feelings you can all have your own opinions, but they're not going to change mine.

I'm just curious as to what kind of topics you would rather fill the forum with. As most everyone has seen every last episode a dozen times or so and we've had plenty of time since the last episode aired to analyze every last corner of a dead show.

I know that a 'Save Futurama' thread isn't going to bring back our show; The only reason Family Guy was brought back was the astounding DVD sales. But, I could also argue that all the 'frame grab' and 'quote guessing' games are a waste of bandwidth and everyone's time. Lord knows we could be doing better things with our time than mourn the demise of a TV show with these games.

You're not going to be able to stop people from registering without reading every rule & FAQ the board has, so there's inevitably going to be the new kid who doesn't know about the past attempts at bringing Futurama back from the dead. And they'll think they're a genius for start an online petition. You can't stop that. There will ALWAYS be those who register without reading the rules or doing a forum search.

So I ask: What sort of threads SHOULD we be posting? What do you suggest is the optimal use of  peelified?

Okay, here's something else you might have noticed: older members (that is, members who've been here for a while) don't post in the general discussion threads much, if at all. That's mostly because they do in fact, get tired of talking about Futurama all the time.
Basically, General discussion is like an introduction to PEEL. People come for the Futurama, and stay for the community (or leave because of them).
The powers that be are quite lenient to new members who show the ability and desire to learn the rules, but they expect more from members who've been here a little while.
But still, it IS a little insulting to that every single person who makes one of these threads seems to forget that there is a large, well established Futurama-loving (whether they admit it or not) bunch of folks who just possibly have already thought of it. It's even worse when newer members start calling older members things like traitors and what not (that happened a couple of months ago).
So, yeah, we can't stop them, but it would be nice if older members (and geez, I haven't been here that long) opinions weren't sneered at as fatalistic.
What sort of threads should you be making? Well, after you've been told off a few times for making silly threads, use your newfound knowledge to take advantage of the existing ones, and then, when you get bored of that, snoop around the other sections and see if you can find something interesting there. Or leave. It's win win.
Oh, and lurking is always a good idea.

Trying to get Futurama back is like trying to break down a brick wall using only your head.  Literally.  Sooner or later you're going to get tired of it, and watching other people attempt it provides amusement at first, and then annoyance when said new head bashers demand you start bashing your head against the wall again.  So if you people want to bash your head against the wall, knock yourself out, but don't demand that I join you.  I have been there, I have done that, I got tired of it.

As stated by a couple of the posts above me, after a while, we do get bored of talking about Futurama.  Thus there is the offtopic board.  I lurk quite a lot, but most of my posts are in the offtopic section.  I'll occasionally post in other sections, if I feel like talking about Futurama.  We're not hardcore nerds like in GalaxyQuest.  (Yes, I've mentioned that movie in one too many posts.  But it's a great movie, and sums up sci-fi fandom in a lot of ways.  I know it was aimed at Trekkies, but some stuff applies to some Futurama fans.)

I personally find these kinds of threads more interesting than trying to get the show back.  But nobody said you had to read those threads or post in them.  That's fine.  You can lurk in offtopic like I do all too often.

Yes, but there is a fairly sizable group at the moment.  They watch Adult Swim, read a bit about the show, find it's cancelled one way or another, and some of the history, and land here.  And they'll ask more questions, and some of them will go into this group who think they should even spam David X. Cohen and other people working on the show, along with other similar ideas.

Then, this thread will hopefully serve as an example that we've been down this line of discussion before.  Quite often we'll reference other threads in ones that are closed pointing out we've talked about it before.

So I ask: What sort of threads SHOULD we be posting? What do you suggest is the optimal use of  peelified?

I didn't say you couldn't talk about the show, make fan art and fanfics, make websites, buy merchandise and talk about it with over members in PEEL.  That's fine.  What I'm complaining about is the bunch of people who are crying all over the place about it being cancelled, and spamming PEEL with "save futurama" topics.  Most of us have had our cry that the show is over and there was a thread about it 2 - 3 years ago, and another a year ago when the last episode aired in the US.

I'm asking those trying to save the show to either move on, or move off PEEL with the "save futurama" stuff.  Go start your own message board, and don't forget the hookers and the blackjack.  Go and do AFF if you must (it's an interesting idea, I'll give you that), but after that, please stop.

This thread has inspired me. I'm going to bring back Seinfeld.

I and all my friends loved the show when it was on, and we are all sad that it's gone now. We were all upset when the last episode aired almost six years ago, and we feel the show deserved to have a better ending.

Sure, the show was on TV for nine years, but that's just not enough. They could do so much more now. Imagine how great it would be if we started getting new eps of Seinfeld. Imagine how many people would rejoice over that news.

I say we start a full campaign. We each mail a box of sponges to NBC to show them how upset we are about the show being off the air. We get as many people as we can to watch the reruns on TBS and other channels to show that the show still has a solid fanbase.

DVD's of the show are coming out soon, and I bet if they sell well enough, NBC will give in and bring the show back. They'd almost have to, or else they'd look like they didn't care. And that's what they care about most: their public image.

Sure it's a long shot, but look at Family Guy. It was dead for quite some time, and now they're making new eps. The same thing can happen with Seinfeld. Forget that they've all got different projects now, I'm sure they'd all love to come back to their great show.

Anyone who gave up hope for Seinfeld in the past five years is a damn traitor. You watched it for all nine years, and now you're just going to let it die? No, I refuse to give up hope.

If this works, I'm going to bring back Quantum Leap and Gilligan's Island too.

First, the analogy here is incorrect. Futurama was cancelled while Seinfeld decided to end the show, its wasn't NBC's choice.

Second of all, I dont really think anything we fans can do will bring Futurama back. Not AFF (I know, I know, it isn't MENT to bring Futurama back), no LiveMarch or petitions. I think the only thing that can bring Futurama back is the natural flow of things. After FOX will milk out the last money-maker from the series (Season 4 DVDs in America) I hope they will depart from the rights of the show in order to make one last "hit". When it is sold elsewhere, perhaps a new season or movie is conceived. And even after so much time, the chances are slim but it isn't that far-fetched. The people in hollywood are usually engaged in several projects, so if the show was to come back there is a chance they'll bring the major crew (the voice actors, yes. But some writers/animators/etc. can be replaced) back even though most of them have other projects. Selling the rights can also mean the ability to make a movie, a one-time shot that will make us all pretty happy.

According to the interviews I've read with Billy West, Matt Groening and such from the last few monthes (most links were given here on PEEL threads) it sounds as if the crew themselves didn't give up on Futurama's future too! On the interviews they dont talk about the death of the show, just how great it is doing on CN now. On the Simpsons they keep reminding us of Futurama ("Why did they cancel Futurama?", Groening in "My big fat geek wedding" ) which brings some hope.

I'm not going to sign any more petitions, or start a "Bring back Futurama!" thread. I'm just going to hope that the natural flow of things will bring Futurama back somehow. Its a longshot, but the idea is not THAT far-fetched. I've seen crazier s**t happen.

I think the only real hope has of coming back is the movie idea thats been floating around for who knows how long... Yea I want futurama to come back but the chances now are very slim.

And what are you talking about Seinfeld wasn't cancelled infact it was the highest rated show on TV. NBC offered Jerry Seinfeld the highest paying contract in TV history just for him to do more seasons of that show and he turned it down because he was done. But I do agree the last episode of that show was pretty lame.

The last Realistic shot at the show coming back is for the last season DVD's sell well here in the U.S. and maybe the show winning 1 of the 2 emmy's it was nominated for.

Idan, Squeaky, you've missed the point.  El Zilcho is satirising your attempts to bring Futurama back.  (I must admit, I cracked up laughing when I read it   laff )  The fact that you've countered the "points" raised just makes even more fun of yourself!  Statement retracted; see other posts below.

(Dear Mr. Swift, I am appalled by your eating babies campaign, and have notified the local authorities…)

I think Idan has the point at the end there.  Hope is OK if you like to cling fast to dreams.  No hope is OK if you prefer to be realistic.  We’re all fans here.  Clamoring about and rabble-rousing isn’t going to turn any heads, though.  The fans, at this point, have no say or effect on whether the show comes back or not, and that may be hard to swallow for some, but it’s true.

One thing I find particularily strange about this thread:
Why would fans of a sci-fi show want a reality check?
Huh? Think about it.

Futurama isn't dead, yet!  What about the DVDs?  What about the comic books?  Even though the show is done, doesn't mean we don't have the comics, DVDs, websites and fanfics!

This is the last thing I'm going to say... Family Guy's revival was basically luck, I mean Fox had no intentions of touching that show even though Fans of it signed many petitions and even sent stuffed toys to Fox and nothing happened... to Fox the show was dead. Then Fox saw the money it was getting from DVD sales and ratings on AS. Basically I'm trying to say that Family Guy's comeback was a rare thing and I don't see the same thing will happen for Futurama... But who knows. Time will tell

That link will take you nowhere. Try this one instead. But, yeah, we're pretty dead at the moment.

Well, about the satire thing all I've got to say is: DUH! (A little credit please?)
JBERGES got it right, on all points, so I wont repeat.

Sorry about that.  I'm not giving you enough credit... I retract my previous statement about your inability to detect sarcasm.

Wow... I see the Satire now but I didn't when I posted the first time. So, I'll admit my stupidity!    laff

I think that Mic's point is valid all the petitions in the world isn't going to bring the show back... Even if the show wins one of the emmy's it was nominated for doesn't mean Fox is going to bring it back. Now if the show pulls a Family Guy and starts making the network tons of cash off DVD sales and has high ratings on AS then maybe they will budge... I doubt it though.

With your astounding 137 posts(and most of them in the last week), I can only assume you signed up, posted a few times, disappeared, then came back. So you don't have the same grip on reality from everyone else in your era. Hm.

Ugh ... let's just agree to disagree, ok?  I'm having a change of heart here myself.  Non-AFFers, let the AFFers be, and AFFers, let the non-AFFers be.  If you aren't going to like what you see in a thread, stay out.  No one should have to squelch their opinion because someone else doesn't like it.  And that is exactly what I'm going to do as soon as I submit this post.  I hope everyone else here does the same.

Zoidberg227, this is not particluarly to do with AFF.  If you wanna participate in it, please, by all means do so.  But after that, I'm asking for a halt on all spam relating schemes to bring back Futurama.  That includes threads, offtopic posts and signatures.  If you wanna continue, take it outside, please.  The issues that this entails have been discussed earlier in this thread.

Yes lampy your right about this.  My apologies to everyone but I do have a life outside of this forum.

Getting back to the topic.  Yes futurama is gone and yes there isn't alot we can do about it.  It doesn't mean that we shouldn't do anything about it.

Okay, I suggest you go start a forum dedicated to this elsewhere.  Just add a link in your reply, and I'll kindly add it to the first post, so you can get that exposure you want for it.
