Geek stuff, sci-fi... Geeks of the world rejoice: Futurama is back. After a long wait, today is the official release date of "Bender's Big Score!", a 90 minute direct-to-DVD film, that will later be chopped up into the first four episodes of the new season. Filled with geek and nerd references, Futurama is a popular American cartoon series, by Simpsons' creater Matt Groening, that sadly got cancelled way before its time by the Fox Network. Now, it's back, and the opening sequence, a big slap in the face of the Fox Network executives, is already a classic. I have already seen the new film, and as a big, big Futurama fan, I can tell you it will not let you down. Three more direct-to-DVD movies are already planned, so go out, buy the DVD, and just like Family Guy, let's get it back on a regular schedule! My personal favourites: Zapp (s03e02): "That young man fills me with hope and some other emotions that are weird and deeply confusing to me." And of course the classic sign over Amy Wong's parents' house (s04e06): "You came to the Wong place."

>futurama was cancelled because half of the writers from the simpsons were pulled to write for it

Actually most of the original Simpsons team was moved to Family's Guy (a show I don't like).
Most of Futurama team was formed by people who left Simpsons after it started to decay (after 4th season) and returned.

That's why Futurama's writing was everythign the simpson's weren't at that point. The show's writing was just as good if not better than the Simpon's at its best.
