Then get out of the forum.

The fact that he doesn't like Futurama/ Family Guy isn't why he should get out of the forum. This isn't a futurama fanclub forum. But, there are other reasons why he should.

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.

You monster Jurrasic Bark is my favorite episode I have to fight the tears at the end of it all watching Seymore wait for Fry to return.

"Ack I didn't cry when my farther was hung for stealing a big but I'll cry now." Although the Episode where Bender becomes god is great as well.

I like the Willy Wonka parody of Family Guy better.

"Oompa-Loompa" *kick* "Inhales* "aaaahhh..." *inhales* "aaaahhh..."

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

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Wow I was sitting there waiting for something funny to happen and it ended.. and I was just, stunned.

But you still hated it right? ;)

The what if machine episodes were pretty good, kind of like a Futurama treehouse of horror, but without the horror.

"What if Bender was really giant?"

I hope they bring back Futurama i always found it a lot funny and smarter then the Simpsons ;D

Yeah Futurama is more sophisticated and humourous than the Simpons in my opinion, definitely.  I love the episode where that giant storm cloud (or something like that) abducts all the old Star Trek cast and forces them to act out his script, and the Futurama crew have to save them.  It went something like that... i just know i found it hilarious anyway.

I agree, I always turn that episode off. I was completely stunned by that, and now I hate it when they talk about who he left beind because he never says he misses his dog or anything.

Anyway, I think the Slurm factory is one of my favs, I couldn't pinpoint my absolute fav though.

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

Its funny because they have to fight each other and Fry fasions a bowstring out of caterpillars... and Leonard Nimoy tries the Vulcan knockout grip on Bender :D

I love that part. Possibly my favorite part of that episode.

hehe the catepillers untie and go all over Fry (giggles uncontrolably). Although I'll defend Jurrasic Bark like a crazed fanboy I enjoyed everything about that episode.

What is this human emotion you call Wuv.
Surley you mean Love.
No Wuv spelt with an Earth "W".
This concpet of Wuv confuses and infuriates us.

Fry reminds me of that 3-eyed fish on The Simpsons...
I don't know why...

I think I can see some similarites.

EDIT: I just realized that it looks like Blinky is eating Fry.
