haha, me too.

Greeting card: Come on, Comrade Bender! We must take to the streets!
Bender: Uh, is this the boring, peaceful kind of taking to the streets?
Greeting card: No, the kind with looting! And maybe starting a few fires!
Bender: YES! IN YOUR FACE, GHANDI!

I'm a bigger fan of the future.


But I don't know what to expect, because everytime I step into the future I realize I'm only in the present again.

i think it's a little over-rated; the zings are a little off...

i wonder why they just dont go ahead and make new episodes already. everybody and their mom is watching it.

Zap is the awesomest.

This show is brilliant
I like it better than family guy.

Bender always does the same stuff, he isn't as funny. He's like Bart saying Eat my shorts.

I grew to dislike Family Guy. I always found Futurama a lot funnier than The Simpsons.

The day Peter fell down and rubbed his knee for like 2 minutes was the day I said "This show sucks dick" or something to that effect, and quit watching. It just really pissed me off. I think they did that kind of thing more than once.

nah... here they show fururama first and simpsons after, so i could compare them well today. and, yeah, the simpsons are obviously more fun.
although it was one of my favourite episodes, the casino one... HILARIOUS!!!

The Simpsons is so moronic. They just say stupid shit the entire time and the stories suck. It was better in the past though. I don't even bother watching it for the last few years.

i'd say you're missing something. some of the new episodes are great.

Zoidberg: "Ah-ha! the once again the sandwhich heavy portfolio pays off for the hungry investor!" *eats sandwhich* "AH! I'm runined! WHY?! WHHYYYYY?!!!!"

You can't compare Futurama to Family Guy. Family Guy takes a shot-gun random approach to comedy - throw whats out there and see what sticks, the plots don't matter. Family Guy also has a super-random "WTF what that" vibe. Futurama the comedy comes out of the plots and the characters reactions to the plot. The characters on Family Guy change from moment to moment depending on the joke. They're both really good in thier own ways, just different.

yeah. there was a dip in quality around season 13 but then the writers finally got back in gear. (or maybe they just hired new writers...who knows)

Yeah you were too busy watching the great writing behind Buffy, The OC and Angel anyhow.
