I love this show.

The funniest show ever, IMO. Blows The Simpsons out of the water.

It is excellent for one reason alone. Dr. John Zoidberg.

And the best science fiction show ever made, serious, comedy or otherwise.

If you doubt me, check this out:

Though I never really watched the show, while it was on Fox(I don't watch alot of tv,especially regular tv), I have watched the show almost religiously since it started airing on the Cartoon Network. Yes, Zoiburg doing his whoop-whoop and his dumpster diving are quite amusing. Leela is one sexy one-eyed mutant, but Bender is Da Man...um Da Machine...um Robot!

I was the same way. I'm glad because I don't really know if I would have gotten alot of the shows jokes until I grew a bit older.

The best thing about Zoidberg, to me, are his quotes:

Nurse: Dr. Zoidberg, are you ready to operate?

Zoidberg: But first I have to perform surgery. (laughing) I kid, I kid.

or

Zoidberg: What are you guys doing tonight? I'm up for...whatever.

And Zap Brannigan is awesome. "She's built like a steakhouse, but she handles like a bistro."

Got to love Zap's ability to spin things! I like this quote: "Spiff(?), inform the men that I have sex with a woman!" Zap 's love for himself knows no equal!

I love Southpark! Number two on my list.

I've never really watched King of the Hill, but I've heard good things about it.

I also like Aquateen Hunger Force on Adult Swim. Crazy, messed-up, but funny as hell.

And Family Guy too. What a great bunch of shows!

My favourite is definitely the professor. And although at it's height I think the Simpsons was better, the last few seasons can't compare to Futurama.

A few Professor quotes:
P: "Is everyone ready to take their pressure pill?" *holds up a huge freakin pill*
Fry: "I can't swallow that thing!"
P: "Well good news! It's a suppository!"

Harlem Globetrotter scientist "We are gonna need a big MAMMY-JAMMY of Doomsday Device to pull that off!"
P: "*sigh* I suppose I can spare you one."

My single favourite moment in the whole series is when the MOM CEO makes some remark about how Fry must be some kind of genius, followed immediately by a shot of him sitting in his underwear watching Sanford and Son in the dark. You really can't go wrong with so many awesome characters.

Bender: "You gotta save us Leela! We'll do anything!"
Leela: "Fine, take all the anti-matter and use the remaining anti-grav lift to put it in the right engine."
Bender: "Awe, man! That crap's heavy!"

My husband and I have recently started watching Futurama and we both think it's hilarious. I'm truly surprised that it doesn't get more attention than it seems to.

Just thought I'd share 2 of my favourite Bender Quotes:

Bender: Everybody's a jerk. You, me, this jerk.


Bender's Great Uncle: Come Bender, you'll like being dead.

Bender: That's what they said about being alive!

And Bender's Famous line:"Bite my shiny silver ass!" I think that he almost says this or some form in every episode.
