Default Futurama is underrated

Such a funny show and talented cast and they come up with so many weird concepts.

I think Futurama>>>The Simpsons at this point. That reminds me did anyone see the Simpsons/Futurama cross over that came out recently? Worth checking out?

Shame they keep cancelling it, these motherfuckers that run TV smh.

Amen

All the character are great, i really like Zoidberg and Leela is funny and weirdly hot for a cartoon cyclops.

I always thought Katey Sagal who plays her was pretty hot too as Peg Bundy although her hair was fucking terrible in that role, i can't imagine that shit ever looked good even back in the 80s.

Futurama is rated just right. Mediocre.

theres a lot of very underrated sitcoms. I thought a lot of people knew about, and liked futurama so it cant be the most underrated.

what about spaced, isn't that a lot more underrated?

Spaced is overrated, at least as a sitcom it is. It has a cult following with nerds because its a nerdy intertextual show. The actual characters are not very realistic and the jokes are not funny because they're basically just pop culture references and not actual jokes (family guy does the same thing). The cast does a great job with the material though, and its directed in such a way that its more watchable than it should be.

I think Futurama does more of a social commentary thing and has more unique jokes since they can create their own universe with each show. Hopefully netflix or someone picks it up, the writers say they have at least 6 seasons of material ready.

I never even heard of Spaced

I suppose Futurama is pretty much universally loved though which is why the show was brought back. The only cartoon I've liked remotely as much as Futurama is Adventure Time

lol wat, futuramas characters are more realistic? a woman with 1 giant eye in the middle of her eye is realistic?

I don't see how something is more funny just cuz its realistic. sure it helps certain types of sitcoms but u do know theres a whole genre of comedy called surrealist comedy or absurdist comedy. is the goodies, the young ones or the league of gentlemen not good enough for you cuz theyre too surrealist?

funny thing is I actually do relate to certain parts of the characters, sure theyre massive caricatures but so are most comedy characters, I don't watch sitcoms because they accurately portray people.

not all the jokes are pop culture references. also a lot of the pop culture references aren't just imitations, similar to how south park has lots of pop culture jokes but their joke isn't just having a pop culture reference. although some of the jokes are basic imitations.




I mean obviously its fine that u don't like the show but don't be trying to make out that people who do like it are some kind of inferior species of nerds who don't understand the true "realistic" humour that u like.

in fact theres a show not well known today that has the most unrealistic characters ive ever heard, the goon show. but without that show modern comedy would be completely different. nearly every important comedian around that time was inspired by it (peter cook monty python eric sykes tony hancock, hell even the beetles were inspired by it) is that sitcom not good enough either?
