Good News, Everyone!

| Thursday, June 24
For those of you who have been living under a rock for a while, Matt Groening and David X. Cohen's awesome animated sci-fi series Futurama returns from the dead (perhaps as Zombie Futurama? I wouldn't put it past them...) tonight at 10pm EDT for an entire hour of parody-ridden goodness!

My love of this show is something I can definitely blame Hub for. I'd honestly probably never watched any of it (not much anyway) before we started dating. It was off the air, thanks to great executives at FOX who were later turned into Torgo's Executive Powder, by the time we started dating. He owned all four seasons on DVD, and we've watched them infinity times since then.

Then, in 2007, they released 4 straight to DVD movies that were later aired as 4 separate episodes each on Comedy Central in 2008. Then after that, Comedy Central picked up 26 BRAND SPANKING NEW episodes of the show to start airing tonight, June 24, 2010!

The last movie, Into The Wild Green Yonder, was treated as if it were the last bit of the show ever to be made, so the Planet Express ship got sucked into a wormhole, and as Professor Farnsworth says, could take them billions of lightyears away and they might never return.

In a recent interview at io9, Cohen answered a lot of questions about where the show's return will take Fry, Leela, Zoidberg, Bender, and that man without a name, Zapp Brannigan. He also mentioned that Al Gore will be returning for his FOURTH cameo, George Takei for his second, and they've also added Patton Oswalt and Katee Sackhoff to the ever-growing list of celebrity appearances.

Please, for the love of all things crude, crass, and ridiculously over-the-top in the world of science fiction, tune in!
