And somehow DXC, Groening and the writers somehow think that's what the fans are going to spend their hard-earned money for?
Well, we all did
go out and buy the dvds. I mean, in all honesty, even flawed futurama is better than anything else on tv.
Yes, we bought the DVDs in hope that the stories would improve over time.
As for better than anything else...
Batman, The Dark Knight, Battlestar Galactica, Smallville immediately spring to mind as being superior. I don't consider the movie DVDs of Futurama to be at any way related to the TV series, so they are in a different postion than being a TV series in my eyes.
And I bought the last two DVDs for my wife. I was so disgusted by BBS that I immediately turned anti-shipper. I refuse to accept the pale immitation of Futurama that has been inflicted on us as being worthy of my time in repeated viewing.
I'd rather the series stay dead at ITWGY if all the writers can come up with is, "Fry chases Leela, Leela rebuffs Fry, Fry and Leela spend one short moment being close, Bender steals something."
Advance the damned plot and come up with some new ideas instead of re-hashing Fry in the 20th century, Leela's crushing loneliness and Transvestbot on the street corner.
Now excuse me, I'll be reading some of Coldangels fics. At least the amateur writers know how to advance the plot.
