The End of Futurama, or Is It?

farewellfuturama
Corey and I are die-hard Futurama fans. We love it! We love everything about it. We were very smad (sad and mad) when we heard that it was being canceled … again.

We’re holding out hope that it’ll find a new home and be renewed by another network. I use the #SaveFuturama hashtag on Twitter and Facebook whenever possible. It may not do much, but it lets me know I’m not alone in my sadness and it gives me hope that it will be renewed. Also, I silently, sometimes verbally, seethe at my disdain for Comedy Central and Fox. I’m not bitter at all!

Last night was the final episode (for now). And, IFF (math term = if an only if) Futurama doesn’t get picked up again, then it ended in a way that I can be happy with the series. I almost cried. It was that great of an episode.

As a non-permanent farewell, I thought I’d post my top ten episodes.

  1. Parasites Lost“Parasites Lost” (season 3)
  2. “The Devil’s Hands are Idle Playthings” (season 4)
  3. “All the President’s Heads” (season 6)
  4. “The Late Philip J. Fry” (season 6)
  5. “The Sting” (season 4)
  6. Bender’s Big Game (“season 5″)
  7. “The Day the Earth Stood Stupid” (season 3)
  8. “Three Hundred Big Boys” (season 4)
  9. “Calculon 2.0″ (season 7)
  10. “War is the H-Word” (season 2)

I’ve only seen it once now, so it hasn’t grown on me yet. But, I’ll probably end up adding last night’s episode (“Meanwhile”) to my list.

Are you a fan of Futurama? If so, what are your favorite episodes?

    I love Futurama! I’ve been a fan since the beginning. When it got picked up by Comedy Central, I was able to watch a few episodes, but then my family moved and we didn’t have that station anymore. I bought volumes 5 and 6 on DVD so I’m caught up until that point, but I missed the rest of them. I’ll probably splurge at some point for the rest of the series.

    My favorites… let’s see…

    S4E4: Less Than Hero
    S3E7: The Day the Earth Stood Stupid
    S3E11: Insane in the Mainframe
    S6E3: Attack of the Killer App
    S4E12: The Sting
    S3E4: Parasites Lost
    S2E17: War Is the H-Word

    I know there’s plenty more, but I just glanced through Wikipedia to pick out the ones I love (and find the titles, because I can’t remember them, lol). Looks like we enjoy the same ones! :D

    Now I want to marathon the whole series! :P

      I have another friend who does’t have Comedy Central so they’ve had to wait. It’s too bad it’s not on Hulu or online somewhere. I hope someone like Netflix will pick them up because lots of people who don’t have cable or Comedy Central have Netflix.

      I love “Attack of the Killer App,” “Less than Hero,” and “Insane in the Mainframe.” It was actually really hard to narrow down my list, lol.

    I love Futurama. I thought it was WAY better than The Simpsons. I don’t know if I have favorite episodes, but I have favorite moments. Most of them involve bender. Now I want to go watch all the seasons again. Sadly, I missed the last one.

      I didn’t know you were a Futurama fan! See more reasons why we’re kindred spirits! And, yes, Bender is awesome. He’s Corey’s favorite character. Whenever his computers is almost out of batteries, it says, “Bit my shiny, metal asterisk.”
