I Really DO HOPE 20th Century Fox Will Bring Back Futurama,
This review is from: Futurama - Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
I think it was a crime against television that FUTURAMA (1999-2003), Matt Groening's wonderful and funny follow-up to THE SIMPSONS (1989-????), got axed by Twentieth Century Fox. The show had gotten better and better when Fox WRONGFULLY cancelled it. FUTURAMA should receive the same regoncition that THE SIMPSONS has recieved.
My favourite episodes of Season Three are:
"Parasites Lost" - The first and, thankfully, not the last episode where Fry tries to win the heart of Leela. The scenes with the two in together are very touching and sweet.
"Amazon Women In The Mood" - our heroes get trapped on a planet of giant, Amazonian women, which is ruled by a man-hating, female computer. What surprised me in that episode was that the relationship between Amy and Kif (Zapp Brannigan's long-suffering alien companion) was beginning to develop.
"The Day The Earth Stood Stupid" - Evil alien brains conquer Earth and only Fry can stop them! The other thing that surprised me in this Season was that Nibbler, Leela's cute pet alien, is a member of a powerful and intelligent race!
"Luck Of The Fryish" - A very moving episode where Fry travels into the remains of Old New York to get this lucky, leaf clover back. The ending is so emotional.
"The Cyber House Rules" - Leela decides to get an eye operation while Bender adopts 12 orphans.
"Rosewell That Ends Well" - the crew accidentally gets sent back through time and ends up in Rosewell, 1947 in this Emmy award-winning episode!
There are many great episodes of Season Three. It's just a shame that FUTURAMA got axed when the show was developing. However, in recent months, there have been rumours that Fox will bring the show back because it has done so well on DVD and TV repeats. I really DO hope it will happen! FUTURAMA, like THE SIMPSONS, will live forever.
