For those of you who are part of the unenlightened portion of our society, Futurama was/is a smart and funny animated show from Matt Groening and David X. Cohen. One word: Hee-larious, and just as good as the Simpsons (Groening’s other creation.) Futurama is much like Fox’s Family Guy — never given a chance, was cancelled, but the popularity picked up through DVD sales and when it was on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.
Futurama is no longer on the air, but Groening and Cohen have since released 4 straight-to-DVD Futurama films. The latest movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder, was just released February 23rd 2009. Gizmodo’s Jason Chen interviewed David X. Cohen on a variety of topics, including Futurama’s future.
Now for today’s irony, although I hold the show near and dear to my heart, I have never seen any of the Futurama films. What’s wrong with me? I guess I got to busy. I’m adding them to my Netflix queue this afternoon. What a hypocritical oaf I am!
