Futurama has always been one of my all-time favorite shows. I stopped watching The Simpsons years ago, but I never gave up on Futurama. The intelligence level of the writers is wonderful with so many references in every episode it's hard to track them all. Yes, there have been ups and down in the series, but with what's most likely the true end of the series, we get the closure the fans have always wanted.
The characters on this series are my friends. So fully developed, so much fun, so well acted they're more real than a lot of regular sitcom characters. They'll be missed, but I'll be visiting them often thanks to streaming.
Goodbye Fry, Leela, and Bender. You've been great companions through the years!
This is it. The last season of Futurama. Again. While not all of the episodes are gems this season, enough are good enough to remind us, the fans, why we love this show so much and why we're going to miss it even more. Comedy aside, there are a couple episodes with heart equal to episodes like "Luck of the Fryrish" and "Jurassic Bark". As a Futurama I DARE you not to shed at least one tear when Fry gets to talk to his mom one last time or when Fry and Leela hold hands and start their journey together all over again. A fitting last season for a great show.
This show has been a gem from the first episode. It has the same winning combo every successful prime-time animated show has had, satire for the grown-ups and slapstick for the kids. A pox on Fox for cancelling it and kudos to Comedy Central for giving it a second life. Frye, Leela, Bender, Prof. Farnsworth, Amy, Hermes, even long-suffering bumbler Dr.oidberg, I amd my TV will miis you!
Not the best series ending of a comedy-SF-animation. Wait a second... how many of those classes of shows have there been? OK, maybe this *is* the best ending ever. But it's still not up to the best episodes of the series. Perhaps in another incarnation. I know -- put it on HBO/Showtime, up the budget, hire Joss Whedon... Oh, never mind. Let's just let it go. At least there was closure even it did wind up being an Ouroboros.
As a long-time fan, this season did not disappoint. Time travel is not a unique concept to this series, especially since the premise is based on Fry's 1000 year "freeze." However, the writers seemed to expand the basic concept and used it throughout key episodes in some very imaginative ways this season. I especially enjoyed the very last episode. Left me in tears, literally. I wish I could be there too!
They should cancel Futurama more often, because Season 5 and Season 10 had some great episodes. Season 9 (the first half of production season 7) had me worried that the writers had lost the magic, but Season 10 (the second half) really shines. Futurama is at its best (I think) when it's presenting some wacky sci-fi concepts, and Season 10 has quite a few, including a pretty awesome series finale that satisfies more than "Into the Wild Green Yonder" did.
I really enjoy Futurama - even as "terminal dumb" as it is (or maybe BECAUSE of it.) I find the show a gas - just good ol' TV entertainment with no pretense. I've seen every show of every season, most of them multiple times, and they're all simply fun.
