Set in the year 3000, Futurama is the acme of sci-fi animated sitcom from Simpsons creator Matt Groening. While not as universally popular as The Simpsons, Futurama is equally hip and hilarious, thanks to its zippy lateral-thinking contemporary pop cultural references, celebrity appearances (Pamela Anderson and Leonard Nimoy are among a number of guest stars to appear as disembodied heads in jars), and Bender, a distinctly Homer Simpson-esque robot. Part of Futurama's charm is that with decades of sci-fi junk behind us, we've effectively been living with the distant future for years and can now have fun with it. Hence, the series stylishly jumbles motifs ranging from Lost in Space-style kitsch to the grim dystopia of Blade Runner. It also bridges the gap between the impossible dreams of your average science fiction fan and the slobbish reality of their comic reading, TV-watching existence. Groening himself distinguishes his two series thus: "The Simpsons is fictional. Futurama is real."
The opening season (premiered in 1999) sees nerdy pizza delivery boy Fry transferred to the 31st century in a cryogenic mishap. There, he meets the beautiful, one-eyed Leela (voiced by Married with Children's Katey Sagal) and the incorrigible alcoholic robot Bender. The three of them join Fry's great (great, great, etc.) nephew Professor Farnsworth and work in his intergalactic delivery service. Hyper-real yet strangely recognizable situations ensue--Fry discovers he's a billionaire thanks to 1,000 years' accrued interest, Leela must fend off the attentions of Captain Kirk-like Lothario Zapp Brannigan, and Fry accidentally drinks the ruler of a strange planet of liquid beings. --David Stubbs

1. Space Pilot 3000
A 25-year-old pizza delivery boy named Fry spends New Year's Eve 1999 lamenting his lame existence. That night, he accidentally freezes himself in a cryogenics lab and awakens at the dawn of the year 3,000! With the past 1,000 years behind him, Fry decides to make a fresh start. He tracks down his great-great-great-great (etc.) nephew, Professor Farnsworth, and gets a job with his intergalactic delivery service. With the help of his two new friends, a beautiful one-eyed alien named Leela and a degenerate robot named Bender, Fry prepares for the ride of his life in this bizarre new millennium.

But now that "The Simpsons" are losing there cool after 17 years of production, I am begginning to grow an intrest in this awesome sci-fi bonanza. For example...
1. Unlike "The Simpsons", Futurama has an original storyline and not to mention a POINT!
2. Futurama has TRULLY innovative charathers such as Fry, Bender, Amy, Dr.Zoidberg and Leela to name a few.
3. The Simpsons at times can be same old, same old but Futurama stays original in ALL episodes.
4. We all still love The Simpsons and it's enjoyable antics but if you want even cleverer and funnier antics, Futurama is your sort of thing.
I STILL like "The Simpsons" and recommend it to anyone but "Futurama" is different, original and addictive and it does need more attention, don't you think? My favourite episodes of Season One are "Episode Two: The season has landed", "My Three Suns", "Hell is Other Robots", "When Aliens Attack" and "Fry and the Slurm factory" and the extras are the sort of extras that a DVD Boxset deserve to have.
I love Futurama and I think anyone who liked "The Simpsons" will do too so don't rent this, BUY IT! You'll love it. Hilarious Futuristic Fun!
