Sweet! Thanks to terrific DVD sales, the highly entertaining Futurama may be revived in the form of direct-to-DVD movies! I loved this show, and felt that it had surpassed the later seasons of The Simpsons in quality. Originally, I had thought that it was too much to hope that the show would come back (like Family Guy did), but now there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Bender has got to be one of the funniest characters created for television. He had me at "bite my shiny metal ass"...
In other television news, I've been main-lining continuous episodes of Scrubs from the Season One DVD set all day while catching up on work. It never ceases to amaze me that a show this smart and funny has not been cancelled yet. Go buy it immediately...
Lastly, I am having to rearrange a few things here this weekend in hopes that I can conserve bandwidth. I am really close to blowing past my new limit (that didn't take long), and hope that dividing up some long, long archives by year will help out. It's just my luck that this would happen right as I am trying to get things together before I head over to Seattle next week for work.

Thats good news about futurama – we’ve got all the series on dvd (buy 1 get 1 free offers are great). Never been too impressed on scrubs though.
I have the 1st season of scrubs on the way to me, too.I can’t wait. That is one of the very few shows that has me laughing out loud constantly. We used to get it here at 9pm every night, reruns, of course, but thenthey suddenly stopped showing it.
Norwegian TV is weird, that way. They will show something CONSTANTLY for a month, then you will never see it again. GAH!
That’s great news about Futurama. I can’t wait to see if it comes to fruition.
And I picked up the first season of Scrubs as soon as I saw it. Scrubs is one of those shows where I meant to watch it when it first started but either another show was on at the time or the stations started moving it all over the place. I was just mentioning a couple of weeks ago that when Scrubs comes out on DVD I’ll pick it up. Then it did.
I’m not sure if you were ever into Samurai Jack (the cartoon). If you are they just released the second season of that great show. A little heads up in case you’re interested.
Futurama was awsome from the start. The lady says that Zapp Brannigan was created with me in mind. Not sure if thats a compliment.
Indeed I do Troy… Samurai Jack and Batman are two of my favorite contemporary cartoon shows.
Oh yes Rob, I would think so! Zapp is cool.
Interestingly enough, Zapp was actually created with Phil Hartman in mind. But when he was killed, they got a Phil Hartman sound-alike instead. Fortunately, they didn’t go that route for all his Simpson’s characters, and chose to retire them instead.
I loved Futurama, and I’ll agree with you that it was better than ‘The Simpsons’. I’ll be so happy if it comes back in any form. Once Groening got into developing the other charachters, the show was amazing!
You know what I want to be released on DVD? “The Tick”. Not the live action one, but the cartoon that was on Fox.
I love Scrubs as well and have been hording episodes since season 1 came out (I didn’t pick up on the show on TV until the first season was nearly over).
As for it not being cancelled, you do realize that it has been put on hiatus until midseason, right? Which could mean cancellation. And, knowing the big four networks, it might just happen. It would be unfortunate, but not entirely unexpected. Granted Alias and 24 did quite well being put on hiatus for half a season. Who really knows what the hell goes through TV execs heads anymore.
