The battle was fought all through this year, but in the end Matt Groening's Futurama took home 2011's Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program. Needless to say, Bender's will be getting drunker than usual after this win.
Good! I'm glad it's getting the recognition it deserves. One of my favorite cartoons.
Futurama has always seemed undervalued.
I don't think so. Everyone over here likes it and talks about watching it like crazy. My friend just finished watching every single episode.
Awesome. I LOVE futurama, and I personally prefer it to other animated tv series. Why? because unlike the rest, they arent restricted by family structures and values. Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, Cleveland Show etc.... Futurama is about friends. Which is a nice change.
True, and being that it takes place so far into the future and has that sci-fi setting, they are more free to explore wild and crazy concepts. Granted they are all cartoons and don't have to face any particular real world 'laws', Futurama still has more room to try new things.
What about South Park?
Personally, I can't stand that show. And I think Quagmire was probably talking about the FOX cartoon shows (which Futurama used to be a part of).
I hate South Park
