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.
Dammit, this needs to happen: (not my Photoshopping work, of course, this was posted on ComedyCentral.com at one point by somebody else) EDIT - I thought I'd found the original link, but I guess it doesn't exist anymore. I DID find a page that included this and other attempts at Futurama movie posters, though: http://www.fanpop.com/clubs/futurama...posters-fanart



Keep the cartoon voices for Bender and Zoidberg, though. You can't improve on perfection.

Pretty cool. Though I always thought if one were to do a live action Zoidberg having the mouth something like the Ood on Doctor Who would be the best route.

Your not serious are you?

Imagine seeing a one-eyed purple haired sewer mutant in real life. Not for you, but for others who aren't devoted geeks to the show as you are.

Futurama would make an awful live action film. Really there shouldn't be a film in general since the series is not popular enough to even warrant one.

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.
The ratings have really been doing no better than South Park. If anything, the reason for the show being axed is because it's a very costly show to back, and let's not forget the actors want royalty for their salaries so all that factors into them canning the show. In contrast, a cheaply produced show like South Park where they can complete like a whole episode in a week and which 95% of the voices are done by the show's creators(even the females) is lot easier to back.

I'm actually excited, since Futurama will be cancelled, that means Aaron Ehasz will probably return to the Avatar verse and write for Legend of Korra.

^Well, sure, it's a given that it's always a balance between ratings and expense. What matters is not how a show's raw ratings numbers compare to some other show's, but whether they're enough to offset its own budget.

Re: Futurama Canceled. Again (SPOILERS)

I'm sorry to see Futurama go again, but at least it leaves us at a higher quality than some others than stagger ever onward. And I don't feel gutted like I did the first time because we've gotten to have quite a few new adventures with the Planet Express crew since that earlier demise. I'm grateful for what we got.

I hope Fry and Leela get together. It's been 13 years of him chasing her.

...or a "realistic" Zoidberg. He looks more like something out of a horror movie than a sic-fi comedy.

They've been an on-and-off couple since the movies. There's no commitment yet, but they've definitely been "together."
