I'm sorry if this has already been posted, but I haven't really spent much time on PEEL lately.
I thought you guys might want to see this... smile

The link takes you to the Official BBC News Entertainment Section , so this should be read by quite a few people! It just shows that Futurama has taken it's place in pop-culture even thought Fox did everything they could to make it sink without a trace.

Bender RULES!

Yeah you can't beat Star Wars no matter what. But I'm glad for Bender! Go Bender!

Awesome, but not quite to the max, #1 would have warranted a to the max...

I think that's from the IMDB poll of the day that ran a couple of months back. The BBC are slow on the uptake...

I *think* it was only a poll of the day...might have been bigger than that I guess.

Well, it's nice to see Futurama get some recognition. Still, it would've been great to see Bender at #1. But hey, I'll take what I can get.

Awesome.  And I've got a soft-spot for R2-D2, so that's great too.  Plus, just to see Bender ranked with a character in arguably the most popular science fiction story of all time is pretty great.

I think R2D2 is cute! I mean it's Star Wars people, Futurama had no chance. I mean if Star Trek had a popular robot than yeah it would be third. But be happy that it was even annouced as 2nd.

Yeah, and personally I don't mind R2D2 beating out Bender. They're both great, and I've also got a soft-spot for him. Really, I couldn't have seen Bender having a chance for second place, but that just shows how bad I am at predicting illogical outcomes. Aww, man...

I noticed that, was just pointing out that I thought it was an old IMDB poll, not that it was from there specifcally. Just wanted to clarify  smile

Second place?  That's just a fancy word for losing.

To use that attitude why dont we say that MAtt groening second choice was to make Futurama.

Never use that attitude and someone always has to lose, its part of competing.

what i hear bad use of grammar, and yes, i merely trying to prove a point. I know that futurama is the greatest show of the universe birth and death, but dont be mad at me trying to say there always has to be a loser, and a winner, which shows that Futurama could always kick "the simpsons" ass!

Hmmm...To some people, saying R2D2 won over a kleptomaniac, alcoholic robot would be an insult...But, even though it was second, it's nice to know Futurama has a record niche somewhere.  smile

Those who choose to alter fate will do so at their own misery.

I meant that what Nix said was a joke from Futurama.  A joke that came out of Benders own mouth no-less.

Bender coming 2nd is better than not being on the list at all. R2D2 is first because Star Wars is real popular(Like I need to say that). But I hate R2D2 because I can't stand things that sound like my answering machine.

But he's adorable!  Cut R2 some slack.

Sorry, but as someone who played the death out of his 70+ Star Wars Action figures as a kid (shut up  wink ), I can't tolerate R2-D2 bashing. 

Let's just be glad Bender got so close at all.

It doesn't bother me that R2D2 won. He's great. I just re-watched A New Hope...sorry "Star Wars" to all you cynical anti-prequal old school fans....Uh what was I saying, Oh yeah R2 had me grinning and laughing throughout. And i've seen the film atleast 50 times already. I just hadn't watched it for about a year or so.

Bender coming second is great but R2 deserves the crown (until Bender mugs him and takes the crown leaving R2 in a alley-way.

Has anyone seen the hilarious "R2-D2 Beneath the Dome" featurete on the Attack of the Clones DVD? For that alone R2 gets top place!

The only way I'll give that garbage can R2D2 some respect is if he tosses back a few beers and steals stuff.
