Not me, though.

Not surprising that the ratings have fallen. There have been some good ones in the Comedy Central run, but on the average it hasn't been as good as the original series. Better for the show to go out while it still has some quality in it rather than limping along tiredly well after it should've ended, like The Simpsons keeps doing.
This pretty much sums it up for me. I'm thrilled the show came back from cancellation and it's been a great second (or third, if you count the movies) run but it's better for the show to bow out gracefully. I will surely miss it but we got a lot of episodes to rewatch for years to come.

I think it's finally time for the live action Futurama movie.

I see no reason why that would be desirable. Well, I guess there might be some interest in the novelty of seeing the familiar Futurama world created in live action (or photorealistic CG), as with the Flintstones movie, say. But I'd still rather see a big-budget animated feature film.

Re: Futurama Canceled. Again (SPOILERS)

I've already posted my thoughts on this in the thread that's in the sci-fi forum, but I'll just repeat here that Futurama has proven itself quite resilient and I doubt this will be the last we see of it.

In my opinion, live action Futurama is already called Farscape.

Human man out of place in an alien world. Alien girlfriend who gets kicked out of her cushy government job. Wacky alien hijinks. Done.

Re: Futurama Canceled. Again (SPOILERS)

I have seriously put off watching Farscape for too long. I need to go watch it. I keep promising I'll get around to it, but something else always catches my attention. No more excuses!

As for Futurama, it got a great run. Lots of hilarious episodes (most of my favorites are in the first two seasons), and a couple of decent movies. I'm happy.

Re: Futurama Canceled. Again (SPOILERS)

There was an episode of Buck Rogers in the 80s where he met some off world future humans at a dance party who were clearly not enjoying themselves until Buck taught the band how to play disco... In the old timely a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Bing Crosby helped out the bored looking Royalty folke's at a ball by teaching the band how to play Jazz.

Fry did try so hard, but he never really convinced any one that the 20th century was better than the 31st.

Except that Futurama is/was a comedy, while Farscape, as funny as it sometimes was, a drama.
