I used to love Futurerama but found that I wasn't missing it all that much when it was gone and haven't yet seen any new episodes.

So freaking glad their second chance is working out. I really loved the show when it was on originally and hated when Fox canceled it. They just seemed too quick to do so back then. It never really got the chance it deserved. I watched it all the time on Adult Swim and was giddy when they announced it was returning. Really happy to see it thriving now.

I wouldn't say it didn't get the chance it deserved. Most shows today don't get 2 seasons, let alone 5. I enjoy Futurama for what it is, but somewhat like MojoOops I didn't really miss it when it was gone.

Haven't kept up with the latest season, but will likely find some time to do so later on.

Yeah, I supposed your right, it did have quite a few seasons, but it still feels like it got cut short early. I totally missed it when it was gone. I loved the show and at the time watched it more than Family Guy.

LOL! Easily one of my favorite episodes. Their reactions to the death sentence are just so funny, and then the ending when they're all in casts are hilarious. That was a fantastic reference!

I loved the part where they saw the other people have died, they are just bones, schakled to the wall, but there face tells a different story, with that big grin on their skulls.

I'm gonna have to catch up, haven't seen much of the new seasons.

It took me a long to time catch up as well. Hell I just finally started watching those direct-to-dvd movies they had released. I fairly caught up now as far as the seasons go though. It's about the only time I really use my DVR: cartoons.

Not sure if they're still going, but I got all of the seasons for $12 a pop on iTunes about two months back. The seasons are definitely worth the $12 price tag.
