There's something about animated thieving, booze drinking fowl mouthed robots... Their hilarious! Also owls are the pests of the future... Great characters, extremely clever witty writing makes Futurama a festival of laughs.

Having show set in the future really works and with Fry to give us a sense of familiarity we're not left in the dark. Again I have to prise the team behind Futurama this is an excellent show.

Review: Futurama: The Series Has Landed

Season 1 / Episode 2 / "The Series Has Landed"
"One small step for Fry. One huge leap for comedy kind."

Futurama is fast becoming one of my favourite shows. Its appealing to all ages with its use of clever witt and with its different layers there is really something for everyone. This episode we're reintroduced to the Moon in the year 3000 that now has become a Theme Park.

Again what is so great about this show is the seemingly endless opportunities to make us laugh. With Fry leading us through the world of the year 3000 we can experience it with someone from our time. I didn't find myself laughing as much as I did for the premier episode but still some solid laughs to be had.

Fry is so loveably stupid and childlike he is the glue that holds together the world that is Futurama.
