    Starts in an hour on Comedy Central.
    It hasn't been nearly as good since they brought it back from the dead, but it's still sad to see an iconic series pass into the night.

    One of my favorite shows but good news everybody. The Futurama crew will be on a Simpsons episode in 2014.

    I'm going to DVR the last one, then the first one (which follows immediately), then watch them in reverse order.

    I used to be a huge Futurama fan, but the first season back left me empty -- the jokes were more obvious and the message was a lot more thinly-veiled than during the original run. I don't think I ever watched a second season episode, at least when it was new. But I've gotten back into it lately and while it's missing some of the intangiables from the first run, it's still a good show.

    I hated that it got shitcanned the first go-round. Now, I don't think there's much else they can do with it. But if TBS were of a mind to pick it up and pair it with American Dad as the Great Shows From Great Cartoonists That Got Overshadowed By More Approachable, Not As Good block, I would not complain.

    The first run of Futurama was great. The second one, while still good, lost quite a bit off its fastball.

    I don't know when it started to go downhill, but it's sad to see what was such a damn good show drop off like this.
