Geek stuff, sci-fi... Futurama is coming back! The animated series, loved by many geeks, is the second show in the history of television to be brought back to life after a cancellation (the other one's Family Guy, also by Fox), mostly due to strong fan demand and very good sales from the series of direct-to-DVD films. Comedy Central ordered 26 new episodes to be made, and airing will start in mid-2010. Matt Groening, one of the two show's creators, said: "We're thrilled 'Futurama' is coming back. We now have only 25,766 episodes to make before we catch up with Bender and Fry in the year 3000."

Hopefully, it fares better. Only two of the newer Star Trek shows were any good.

The Next Generation was an awesome show.

Deep Space Nine was really good, however, being a creation of Rick Berman, well, it wasnt' Star Trek. Way too dark and pessimistic about the future. Not at all the way Roddenberry viewed the future.

Voyager was "Giligan's Island" in space. God, that show sucked. Bad. It was terrible.

Enterprise was really cool sometimes, but it was inconsistent. It wavered between optimism and pessimism about the future. They should have stuck with the bright view. Those were the best episodes anyways.
