With a new season premiering in less than 48 hours; this is a thread to talk about the show!

I've been watching the show on this site. Finished Season 1 yesterday and just started Season 2 up now!

    I loved the first four seasons, but I'm apprehensive that the show is coming back. I'd already made my peace that it was over, and I certainly hope that the writing will be better than the direct-to-video movies they've brought out in the meantime.

    [CENTER]i need to rewatch it all again just for the sake of doing so(for the 50th+ time)
    cant believe they renewered this as a series after so long

    it had a nice 4 season long start
    then BAM canceled
    then BAM renewed for 4 movies, and it was supposed to end there

    then BAM, series renewed by popular demand


    now they need to renew the critic[/CENTER]

    I've listened to all the commentaries on all the episodes. Some really great stuff in there. I have a lot of faith that they'll do the show justice with this new season. The only problem I had with the movies was the pacing, and getting back to 20-minute episodes should be awesome. There's some real creative geniuses behind this show.

    Zoidberg is one of the best characters, imo. His uselessness empowers the show.

    Yea I know, it's just that everyone hates him that I said that. Although I think he's kinda annoying.

    Annoying? Zapp Brannigan is annoying. He can be funny at times... but he's usually annoying.

    Best Character on the show. Zoidberg is a close second.and the professor is 3rd.

    Bender is probably my favorite character. Zoidberg then Farnsworth after.

    There's just something that I don't really care for about him. I don't hate him, but I also don't love him.

    One of my favorite Zoidberg scenes is when the Professor uses the Cool-o-meter at Cubert's party, and the thing drops to zero when it's pointed at Zoidberg.

    There are only two characters that I hate: Cubert and Wernstrom. But I think they are designed to be hated.

    My favorite running joke in the show is how everyone is always mean to Zoidberg. i always find that funny.

    God, I have missed this show. I hope the new season turns out better than the last three movies, because I didn't enjoy those as much as I thought I would have.

    Bender's Big Score, though, was perfectly done was and one huge continuity nod to the longtime fans. God bless that movie.

    I can’t believe nobody’s mentioned the most important person on the show. He’s the glue that holds Planent Express together.

    Scruffy.

    "Who are you?"
    "I'm Scruffy. The janitor."

    EVERY time they see him rofl

    Also another funny Zoidberg scene was when that insane robot Roberto gets into Planet Express and takes everyone hostage and holds Zoidberg in a chokehold and screams out he window,
    "I GOT HOSTAGES!"
    The police guy replies, "Do you got any better hostages?!" hahaha

    "New Crew? What happened to the old crew?
    "Oh, those poor sons of b- That's not important! What is important is I need a new crew."

    "Can we have some money?"
    "Oh my, no."

    "Can we use the spaceship to get away"
    "Well, I guess it's possible. But I am already in my pajamas."

    I love the professor.

    I think I have watched every episode at least three times, between the orig running, Adult Swim, and Comedy Central.
    Its hard for me to really pin down a fav character, but I'll try...

    Fry. I mean he is the star.
    The Professor. (He doth protest to much me thinks) He has the best lines in the show honestly.
    Ziodberg. Too much to list here...but here is a good one...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtSZK31uXT4

    Also here is
    Dr. Zoidberg Spore
    Bender Spore
    Nibbler Spore
    Spore Yivo
    Futurama SPORE


    All Hail Hypnotoad...yes all hail hypnotoad
    Bender. I think he is my favorite.....

    And here is why...Bender Season 1 Clips
    Scruffy...the janitor. (The real star of the show btw..;) )


    I love this show, and I'm giggity that is coming back. :D

    There was a small article about this in the new Maxim. Apparantly Comedy Central wanted to bring in new characters and change a whole bunch things with the presentation and subject matter, but Cohen and Groening shot them all down.

    That reassures me that this new season will be a great addition to the series.
