Let me clarify, what I meant was that he might have a new show to replace The Simpsons. The voice actors are signed for 15 seasons, by 2005 they'll be done, that was what I meant, although I admit it wasn't very clear. Of course I still want new Futurama on the air in 2005, I doubt any other show could replace it.

By 2005, Matt Groening will become a dark god, bathing in the torchlight reflected from the pool of blood spreading toward his feet from the still warm carcass of R Murdoch, onetime leader of the viscious cult known as FOX TV.

Do I need medication?

I bet after the Simpsons' fifteenth season, they'll just contract the actors to do yet more episodes.

Considering how FOX has treated Futurama, the next time Matt Groening makes a new show he might not offer it to FOX.  I'm sure there are other networks that would be interested in a show from the creator of the Simpsons.

BLACK BOOKS- Don't know, but most UK sitcoms have a short life
SIMPSONS- Going down the loo
BECKER- Might last a few more years.

Oh boy!  How wonderful my TV viewing will be in 2005! [sarcasm detector blows up]

Terry Farrell has left "Becker" (does anyone know if she quit or was fired?),  and according to the CBS schedule for fall 2002, Becker's moving from Mondays to Sundays.  Now am I right that moving a TV show around the schedules in the U.S. is a bad thing?

Another Black Books fan. Brilliant. The simple answer is tape any shows you like then rip off that plastic bit that means they can't be overwritten. I have tapes somewhere of almost all my favourite shows.

I have more to add...
COLD FEET - Last series this year (probably)
TRIGGER HAPPY TV - Ended last Christmas (probably a good thing, but still a shame)

(what the hell is becker?)

Becker's a U.S. sitcom that's been showing on U.K. sattelite & cable channel Paramount Comedy Channel, but not on any terrestrial channels.

Come on, guys. FOX's new Reality* show, American Idol, is relevant, obviously-unscripted, good-natured fun for intelligent people who are fed up with dimbulb doo-doo like Futurama*.

Looks like you'll all have to turn off the TV and go outside afterall.

Cut it out with the unhealthy obsession with hating Fox. They gave you the damn show in the first place, didn't they?

More like hating the person who gave you the most delicious candy on earth then stopped giving it to you. Would you hate him so much if you'd never been given the chance to taste that sweet, sweet candy in the first place?

How about this... a store starts selling a new brand of candy. It's the most delicious candy in the world. After about a week, the store owner decides to start selling his own brand of candy. It's inferior in every sense of the word. Of course, the store owner knows that nobody's going to by his crap if really, really good candy is available.

So the next time you walk into the store, your favorite candy's nowhere to be seen. When you ask where it is, the store owner says that it's still available, but it's in the back of the store, on the very bottom shelf, all the way in the back, behind the sacks of fertilizer.

And because you love this candy, you go back there every week. And half the time, it isn't even there. And when you go to complain, the store owner keeps telling you how committed he is to that particular brand of candy. Yet, the situation never improves. But, you stay optimistic. You try to get all your friends to buy the candy. Their response: "Oh, I tried that. It was good. Do they still make it? I never see it anywhere."

And one day, the store owner decides to stop ordering the candy. Why? Because he had a huge backlog of the stuff in his basement. And no one was buying it anyway. "Of course nobody's buying it!" you reply. "You never put it on the shelf!"
"Don't worry", he says. I still have a whole crate of it in the basement. It's been sitting down there for a year, but it's still good. And when it runs out, MAYBE I'll think about thinking about ordering some more. Of course, by then, the candy company'll probably have closed the factory down..."

And THAT, my friend, is why we hate FOX.

I'd burn that damn store to the ground, man. And they'd find the owner buried in his own fertilizer.

FOX would never have given us Futurama of their own accord. They wanted Matt Groening to prop them up once again, and gave him free reign to do as he wished. But when he handed them Space Pilot 3000, they asked with one voice, "What's going on? W-Why isn't it The Simpsons in outer space?" and immediately set about screwing it into the dirt.

Yeah, I'll love them for that.
