yeah, i showed everyone The Day the Earth Stood Stupid during English on the last lesson of Year 7. cuh, my tutor group have no taste for art.

Also, doesn't it state on the DVDs that it is illegal to do that? But it isn't. Shut Up. Shut Up...

I read that crap. I was always thinking of trying to watch Parasites Lost during biology, but now that they've bumped us up to KS4 it seems highly unlikely. I also voted yeah.

It just depends on the reason.  Futurama would be perfect for classes about animation (particularly creative angles and character acting).  For science classes though, probably not, since the "science" on the show is obviously iffy and inconsistant.

We're doing a thing on the Titannic and I was thinking of bringing in 'A Flight To Remember' but my teacher probably wouldn't let us watch it  :( .

We did sci-fi for an unit in English class this year. I was going to bring in Futurama after we watched The Day the Earth Stood Still, but I settled for doing an entire project on Futurama.

Also, let's see what's next up in Science for me...geologic times and planets. Hmmm...The Why of Fry for geologic("Who killed the dinosaurs?""Me!" )and perhaps any episode of Futurama for planets. If only I could bring it in...

My High School watches Futurama all the time. Just the other week we watched 'Amazon Women In The Mood' and 'A Tale Of Two Santas' for no reason at all.

Pfft! I wish I could bring Futurama in. Sure most kids know it and like it but like our teachers wouldn't let us watch it. And if I could, I'd bring in Rosewell That Ends Well, for...history   ;).

I'm currently in the process of doing an English essay that is about the future. I reference Futurama many times in it.

A also brought in 'Crimes of the Hot' to watch in class when we were studying satire.

lucky you. I've started Media in English, and all we get to do is "superhero comics".

I watched Roswell That Ends Well in History class (when we very briefly did about "post-WWII" stuff, for like 2 lessons or something). Was a very fun lesson.

Sure!  I believe some Futurama episodes can be used for educational purposes!  When I get back to teaching in the fall, I'll definately show some Futurama episodes to the class!  Maybe they will learn something. 

That's the cool thing about a show like Futurama.  It's fun for all ages to watch, and you can learn things from it, too!

dr.bender nye: How could you not finish a 23 minute episode?

As long as the episode is somewhat educational, I believe it should be allowed to be shown in school and other places. (Unfortunately, I doubt any of my teachers would allow it. But, I don't know who 4 of my 6 teachers will be, so I never really know.)

Well we did do changing copper in to silver then it was announced and about 1/4 hour later we watched Futurama cause theres no DVD player in school and worked out the volume to the Laptop and on a big screen.

What'd you do at the parts when Leela was about "fraternize" Fry? This is my only qualm with showing this infront of my parents. There's just too much sexual stuff.

Interesting question, I voted yes. I bring in a DVD to school every day - before I go, I'll always put some disc from some show in my bag, on the slim chance we might get to put it on in some class. When we do, everyone seems to enjoy it - and it's good for the show since it gets more people familiar with it. Besides, beats the hell out of doing work...  :rolleyes:

Of course! I even did a project of a magazine with the theme of Futurama for English. I put some PEELer's names into the project as "staff writers" or "fan artists".
