View Full Version : Isn't Futurama just the best scifi ever?

I'm watching a quadruple bill on Sky (well a double on SkyTwo followed by another double on SkyOne) and I've realised how good this series is. It combines the brilliance of Simpsons satire with the colourful futuristic artistry of Hanna Barbara and Looney Tunes. It has more action than anything Jerry Bruckheimer makes and more zaniness than the works of Seth MacFarlane. It is what every scifi show should aspire to be.

You might say that it is a cartoon and as such is too screwed up in science to be a model for mainstream scifi. However, I say that mainstream scifi has gotten science just as screwed up. The difference is that the writers of Futurama have an understanding of science beyond the latest edition of the Childrens' Science Encyclopedia and as such they know how to have fun with bad science, rather than mainstream scifi, which tries to pretend it's being serious about it.

Animation opens up so many more opportunities than live action. Augmenting live action with CGI only works if the animation is of sufficient quality to fit in the scene. That limits how far they can go. In an animated series, there is no such restriction since they can draw whatever they want. This means we can have characters like Zoidberg, Bender and Leela. And because the animation is not meant to look like the real thing, they can use CGI to create dramatic space chase sequences through the old people's buildings of the Near Death Star that don't break the bank for episodic television.

Agreed.

For example, there's no take-charge, swash-buckling Captain out there that Zapp Brannigan doesn't parody (sigh).

Animations are wonderfully flexible, not only in space, but time, and other dimensions (Nah, I'm just messing with you kid. You're all right.: Flexo)

There is certainly hope here that the rumors of Futurama's return have substance.

Hooray!

pretty cool and damn funny

but it lacks the real science you see in other sci-fi, Simpsons was had a bit more bite for its comedy factor and other scifi shows have been more ground breaking for example : shows like Flashgordon, Red-dwarf, the original Trek.

CUBERT: That's impossible. You can't go faster than the speed of light.

FARNSWORTH: Of course not. That's why scientists increased the speed of light in 2208.

CUBERT: Also impossible.

FARNSWORTH: And what makes my engines truly remarkable is the afterburner, which delivers 200% fuel efficiency.

CUBERT: That's especially impossible.

FARNSWORTH: Not at all. It's very simple.

CUBERT: Then explain it.

The educational credentials for the Futurama writing staff is staggering for a TV show:

David X. Cohen has a Bachelor's Degree in physics from Harvard University and a Master's Degree in theoretical computer science from UC Berkeley all of which material he has now forgotten. A longtime writer for The Simpsons, he left to develop Futurama with Matt Groening, where he was the executive producer and head writer. He has won Emmy Awards for his work on both shows.

Ken Keeler has a PhD in applied mathematics from Harvard University and worked at Bell Labs before switching careers to write for David Letterman. After moving to Hollywood he wrote for both The Simpsons and Futurama and has won Writer's Guild and Emmy Awards.

Jeff Westbrook has a PhD in computer science from Princeton University. He was an associate professor of computer science at Yale University and also worked at AT&T Labs before writing for Futurama. He has been writing for The Simpsons since 2004.

Heh, if this one wasn't mentioned, It was one of the two I had in mind. the other had Bender launched at nearly light speed from a torpedo tube. He began to take himself apart and throw the bits in the direction of travel to slow down. Not really funny, but correct (with unlimited parts);)

Futurama had a lot of oddball, goofy stuff in it that was so stupid and slapstickish that folks can't help but laugh at it.
but it also had a lot of stuff that went right over the heads of 99% of the people watching it- and as such, didn't seem funny to them.
and, as we know, 99% of the people have a short attention span and don't expect a cartoon to be educational.
so, they stopped watching, and Fox started moving it around from night to night, in the hopes that it would go away and Matt could focus on the Simpsons again. and away it went..
until the DVDs came out and flew off the store shelves by the millions- no doubt helped by the fact that the Cartoon network started showing it with relatively huge ratings for a basic cable tv network.
now that Fox doesn't really have any good shows coming out anymore, they are going to their fallback positions, and bringing back shows they've gotten rid of. it worked with Family Guy, and i hope it works for Futurama.

the weired thing about futurama, tho, is that even tho i can't think of a truly bad episode, the only episodes i really remember are the "softy" episodes- the one about Fry's dog waiting for him to come back, the one about his brother naming his son after his missing uncle, the one about Leela's parents, and, yes, even the one where they go back to Roswell and Fry becomes his own grandpa.
all of those episodes had every stupid thing that made the show so great, but also that extra something that really made me connect with the characters for some reason and realise that it wasn't just a silly cartoon set 1000 years in the future- it was a very well thought out and written show- probably the best on tv...

Yeah, that one totally devastated me. I saw it when it aired. When the DVD set came out, I tried, but just couldn't watch more than a few minutes of it.

Aside from "Godfellas", "Roswell that Ends Well" and "Where No Fan Has Gone Before" (my three favorites), the ones that really resonate with me are the ones where Fry is trying to win Leela's heart.

Okay, so that explains how they got the science right.

But, it doesn't explain how they could write a show that was so out-and-out funny. I mean, with those credentials, they would likely write jokes that only geeks and nerds would get, and I thought they were hilari...

"Jurassic Bark" did give me one belly laugh, at the beginning - though I had to single-frame to see it. When they're in the history museum looking at the 20th century exhibit, the view pans past a glass display case with several irregular objects in it. The sign on the display says "Copralites of the New York Knicks". So first you've gotta be dedicated enough to have a recording of the show, then perceptive enough to spot something that flashes by, then knowledgable enough to get the joke.

Of course some jokes are beyond geeky, such as the number on Zapp Brannagin's ship, Nimbus: 1729 Everybody knows that this is the smallest number expressible as the sum of two positive cubes in two different ways, right?

I love it how Hawking steals Fry's discovery of 'Fry Holes' and names them Hawking Holes.


One of my favorite of the favorite episode of Futurama is, I think it's called "Where No Fan Has Gone before". They got the entire main cast of the original Star Trek, except James Doohan, to supply their voices for their head-in-a-jar selves. The episode makes so many jabs at fanatical Trekkies, and what makes it so funny is some Trek fans are really like that.

If you pay good attention in the episode where Fry and Leela end up inside the LM on the moon, a plaque in the background, on the wall inside the LM, reads "Lunar module returned to location by the Historical Sticker Society." I burst out laughing when I spotted that, because they got it right: the top of the LM, the gray part, rocketed off the gold foiled base part, which is still on the moon. The gray part went up to lunar orbit, to offload the astronauts to the command module for the return home.

I did not - thank you for pointing this out! :)

In the episode where Fry has a fling with Amy (and ends up MUCH closer to her than he expected) did you notice two books on a shelf in the closet they used for their nookie? They are the same size, and one is labeled "P", the other "NP". How many people noticed and understood THAT ONE??

The number of Bender's apartment (which is ASCII for $) is positively obvious in comparison.

I've seen anime that beats it easily, but that was a sad episode. It reminded me of the story of Hachiko. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hachiko) About the only Futurama episode I didn't really care for.

I catch the episodes again every so often on Adult Swim. I really like how I can see an episode five times and pick out more jokes each time.

That's just scratching the surface! Are you aware of Futurama's own language, used to communicate jokes (mostly in-jokes) on signs, etc? Not so much a language, as an alien looking font.
Actually, Futurama has two "alien languages." The first one, introduced as early as pilot episode is simple substitution -- each symbol means one English character. For example, the M.A.S.H.-looking tent in "War Is The H Word" spells out "MEAT."

The second alien language, first introduced in "The Why Of Fry," is much more difficult to decipher. It uses same symbols, but only first letter of any given text is direct substitution. The second letter is coded not with "its" symbol, but with the symbol corresponding to the numeric difference in modulo-26 arithmetic between that letter and the preceding one. For example:

Pretend that caps are "alien symbols" substituting for lower-case letters. In that case "first language" encoding for the word "yummy" would be simply YUMMY. The "second language" encoding would be YVQZL. The way you get it is:

y codes to Y. y is letter 25, u is letter 21. In modulo-26, 21-25=22. So letter u is coded by the 22nd symbol, which is V.

m is letter 13. In modulo-26, 13-21=17. Third letter m is coded by 17th symbol, which is Q.

m is followed by another m. Subtracting any number from itself gives you 26, so the fourth letter is coded by Z. (BTW, in this scheme, any string of repeating letters will have Z in second and subsequent places.) Etc.

When Fry lands on the Nibblonians' home world in "The Why Of Fry," you see two obelisks engraved with alien alphabet. Each says "yummy tummy" -- one in the original script, the other in the new one. Naturally, they are intended as Rosetta Stone to give the clue for the second alien language.

I heard (although I can not see how it can be proven) that somebody deciphered first alien alphabet during first airing of pilot episode before the episode even ended. The second one took several months after airing "The Why Of Fry" to decipher.

I had a feeling that the joke was about NP complete problems, but it's been so long since I've heard the term, I didn't get the joke. I'm guessing the books being the same size indicates P = NP, which is still an unsolved problem? I've only very fuzzy memories (logic?) about this topic and haven't seen it for about 12 yrs or so
