You may now Commence Jumping for Joy. (I know its not definite yet but odds are it'll happen.) Could it be fox is learning the error of their ways when it comes to Canciling good shows and leaving on bad ones?... nah. Probably not. They just want a cut of the Futurama cash. Still, Yay!


What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

I'm glad they might bring it back... BUT... I hope the little hiatus will put the show back on form. The last few episodes werent very funny. The one with Fry's cloned dog being the prime example. I prefered it when they still used the whole 'we have to deliver things to Cliched planet A in the parody system' plot device, before they based the show entirely around their lives on Earth.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I must say I'm personally not a fan of Futurama nor family guy...so this is bad news to me.

I'm not sure he would like that. Perhaps a big white room where nothing can happen to him and he can't do anything, where could that be? Oh! I have an idea!

I like watching gagged kittens that are strapped to a conveyor belt heading for a bed of razors screech for their lives.

Oh freaking awesome!

My favorite episode had to be the one where Bender was stuck in space, and he had a colony of things living on him... Awesome...

The one about Fry's dog made me cry....
XYZZY!

Then get out of the forum.

I am excited about it, as I am fans of both series. When I got the Family Guy box sets, they came with shirts saying "You're freakin letter writing campaign worked"...or something to that effect. Classic.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.
