'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke records voice for 'Futurama' - See the pic!

"Game of Thrones" might have just completed its third season, but leading lady Emilia Clarke isn't taking her time off to rest. Instead, the Brit is busy recording a voice for the final episodes of "Futurama." Clarke's involvement with "Futurama" was first announced in early May, and a photo posted to "Futurama's" Facebook page proves that she kept her word. This will be Clarke's first time recording a voice for a cartoon television series. According to "Futurama" executive producer David X. Cohen, Clarke's character on the show is a flower stand owner who has no sense of smell. "She falls in love with Dr. Zoidberg -- the smelliest character on Earth in the future -- but she can't smell him, so it's a match made in heaven," Cohen teased recently to Entertainment Weekly. "However, being a doctor, he has the opportunity to perform a nose transplant and give her a sense of smell, which would... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/06/game-of-thrones-star-emilia-clarke-records-voice-for-futurama---see-the-pic.html

'Futurama' canceled (again) after seven seasons on Comedy Central

"Futurama" is heading into cancellation yet again. Comedy Central has decided not to renew the animated series after seven seasons on that network. Why was the sci-fi, comedy cartoon canceled this time?The basic reason seems to be, as always, declining ratings over the past few seasons. EW.com, which first broke the news, quoted Dave Bernath, the executive vice president of programming at Comedy Central as saying the show had a "he**uva run" as it came to its end. "I'm more thankful and feel a sense of gratitude toward the whole process -- and that we found a way to keep going for 52 more episodes -- than I really am even thinking about the ending. It's a blessing that it came back and lasted so long."The Comedy Central tenure of "Futurama" comprises its relaunch from 2008 to the present. The series, from "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening and David X. Cohen, originaly aired on FOX... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/futurama-canceled-again-after-seven-seasons-on-comedy-central.html

'Futurama': Evil creatures, apes and 'science' in Season 7, part 2

But the time may pass a little faster with this first look at what's to come in the back half of Season 7.The three-minute teaser opens with a bunch of quick bursts of scenes -- Leela beating the bolts out of Bender as a mugger, Prof. Farnsworth turning the Planet Express ship into a dragster, hyperintelligent apes celebrating the arrival of their new office chairs/tire swings. You know, the usual.There are a couple of longer scenes as well, with the crew trying to figure out which of them might be an evil creature in disguise (at the 1:05 mark) and, right after that, the resurrection of Calculon using a bit of black magic -- er, science. Then it's back to the short clips, and it all ends with Fry dying. (OK, probably not, but he doesn't look in very good shape.)Comedy Central hasn't... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/02/futurama-evil-creatures-apes-and-science-in-season-7-part-2.html
