Futurama Canceled - Again...

Comedy Central has decided not to renew Futurama, which means that the 31st-century-set animated comedy will end its 140-episode run on Sept. 4. The final 13 episodes, which represent the second half of season 7, begin airing on June 19 at 10 p.m.

Futurama is no stranger to cancellation, of course: The series aired from 1999 to 2003 before Fox sent Fry & Co. into oblivion. After thriving in reruns on Adult Swim, Futurama was relaunched in 2007 with four-direct-to-DVD movies that Comedy Central ran in half-hour increments as a 16-episode fifth season in 2008-09. Comedy Central subsequently ordered a sixth season of 26 episodes, which aired in 2010-11, and a seventh season of 26 episodes, the first half of which debuted in 2012.

I always liked Futurama. Its one of the few cartoons that could always make me laugh. Its a shame its coming to an end again, it will be missed.

i think this is a fun show even now

 

The problem is the network,

They dont play it consistently, might be on one week not the next,

Fans from then to now still like the show, Just seems the network didn't do their part well

Thats true. I never knew when a new episode would actually be on. It used to be on the same wednesdays as south park. But with the large gaps of time between seasons, I never knew when to actually watch it. Even when there were new episodes, the lack of airing them consistently made the newer seasons blend in with the constant reruns of the previous seasons. I've seen every episode of Futurama and with it being on netflix I had no desire to watch the constant repeats on their channel and it would result in me missing the new eps I'd actually want to watch. I wouldn't necessarily say the network purposefully set the series for fail, but you don't see Fox airing 3 reruns of simpsons on a wednesday night and then throwing a new ep into the mix every other week. Futurama could have succeeded better if they actually dedicated a time slot for it.

Definitely. Futurama is far better than all three of those shows. :nod:

 

Family Guy and American Dad haven't been nearly that good in the past couple seasons. I'm surprised they keep getting renewed. But then again, Fox has tried adding new cartoons to their sunday lineup numerous times and failed in the ratings. Their latest one is Bob's Burgers. Honestly, I didn't care for it at first, but I prefer watching Bob's Burgers over Cleveland Show and Family Guy now.

      I started Revisions on Netflix. The first episode has awful and janky CGI but it gets a lot better after that. The premise is great, but for fucks sake the main character is so damn annoying. He makes Asta from Black Clover look like a good character. Mecha series have the absolute worst main characters the majority of the time. I just don't get it. Mikazuki Augus, Sousuke Sagara, Lelouch Vi Britannia, and Van of the Dawn are the only ones I can think of that I've ever liked. But here we don't have your typical emotionless husk, or pacifist crybaby... you'd only wish for that once you meet Daisuke Dojima. He's ultra full of himself and a selfish idiot. Holy cow he should be a side character. All his friends aren't that great either as they all bicker with Daisuke's douchness. Why am I even watching this?

      Netflix put Code Geass up. Rewatching it reminded me what a badass Cornelia was (ultra best girl), and how savage Euphemia's death was. Damn it was so gut wrenching. It will always be the moment I'll never forget about the series. 
      Also, how I yearn for a return drawn mecha battles. Even the most degraded model quality in motion is so much better than wonky slow CGI. The Lancelot is such an awesome design.

      Eh, we got cheated on this short season of GoT. As cool as the winterfell battle was, the Night King's death felt so meaningless. And now Danny is insane?  C'mon... Yeah shes my favorite character, and I wouldn't have minded a descent into madness, but a flip in 2 eps? It's so forced it's sad. Just because Jon told the fam about his heritage and her friend got cut down. It made for an action packed ep, but it didnt make a lot of sense. The Hound and Mountain rivalry was resolved which is what I'm satisfied with... Mountain looked like bloated Darth Vader. 😂😂

      I"m loving owning a lawn tractor. I've used it only twice so far, but its great. I can get my entire lawn mowed in just under an hour and a half. The cup holder seems so pointless.. lawn tractors don't have shocks, its only the seat that has springs to save you from getting your ass and back wrecked.. I could only imagine someone putting a beer in that cup holder and driving off on the yard, that beer would last maybe 20 seconds before its all over the tractor.  Now I need to buy a weed trimmer to trim around the trees and the ditch.. and 3 ceiling fans. I hate the light fixtures in 3 rooms. Time for an upgrade.

      13 episodes into The Rising of the Shield Hero, and this show is pretty much taken the crown for this season... or last season depending.. I guess it counts for both as its still going. Unlike most Isekai, the main character is constantly getting screwed and is always at a disadvantage. The pure hatred you feel for all the other characters in this alternate world of douche is amazing. Literally everyone except a small handful of people are assholes. So the main character tends to go Mass Effect Renegade at times. The emotional vitriol this show invokes is outstanding. The animation of the characters and the dub voice actors nail it completely... as someone that it doesn't take much to want a character to die... I REALLY want 90% of the cast dead.
