Futurama 2011

Okay, as many of you know I was so jazzed last June 24th (2010) when Futurama came back to TV. I had a party & had all my favorite people show up! We had a great time. The first episode was pretty good, but after was terrible. Awful. So disappointing. The writing was off. The characters were, well, out of character. After having rewatched the old episodes hundreds of times, thanks to Adult Swim, everyone tuning in was intimately familiar with the characters. Hell, the fans could have written better episodes than were being crapped out last season. It was like some weird composite of Futurama, Family Guy, & South Park. It was not, despite what the title said, Futurama.

Good News everyone!!! This season is completely awesome. It's like last season never happened & we picked up where the old Fox series left off. It's smart again & relevant to the world around us. The gross disgusting South Park like humor is gone. Leela is Leela again. Everyone seems like themselves. It's like old friends coming home.

I have no idea why this happened. I can't believe that they wasted last season's hype & put out crap & this season there has been barely any hype & it's fantastic. So, if you were disappointed or put off last season, do yourself a favor & tune in this season. You'll laugh. You feel like that horrible 2010 season was just a bad dream & all is right with the world again.

We watched this week. Yes, we have cable now! And we enjoyed it.
We missed all of last season (the no cable thing) and I’m glad we did. We only saw that first episode with you. It’s like the whole bad season never happened for us.
