'Futurama' Season 7: Matt Groening teases an election, Fry and Leela and more

"Futurama" returns to Comedy Central in just a few weeks, and creator Matt Groening says fans can look forward to continued development in Fry and Leela's relationship, the return of guest voice George Takei and, according to him, the limb-losingest season yet."I guess what's different this summer is Fry and Leela's relationship is progressing, and people who care about that will be delighted," Groening tells Zap2it. "And the animators at Rough Draft have once again made it their missions to outdo themselves. They just love doing the show -- they have such a good time. ... With a very skimpy budget and tight time schedule, they continue to amaze us."The season opens June 20 with back-to-back episodes. The first finds Bender the father to a robot baby (complete with explanation of how that works), and the second plays with the idea of the Mayan calendar predicting the end of the world in 2012. In "Futurama's"... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/futurama-season-7-matt-groening-teases-an-election-fry-and-leela-and-more.html

Emmys 2011: 'Boardwalk Empire' dominance, 'Futurama' and other Creative Arts surprises

It's always fun to look at the Creative Arts Emmy winners to see if they hold any predictors of what might happen at the primetime Emmy ceremony. This year's Creative Arts ceremony, just over one week before the primetime awards are given out, is no exception, given some of the surprises that we saw Saturday (Sept. 10).Whether these are any indication of what might happen next Sunday is anybody's guess. But it's sure as heck fun to speculate, right?"Boardwalk Empire" dominates: It wasn't a big stretch to think that the academy voters were going to fall in love with "Boardwalk Empire." It's a sweeping period piece shot on an epic scale, with the pedigree of both Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter behind it. But given the love the academy has had for "Mad Men" during the last three years, it was a surprise to see "Boardwalk" dominate most of the technical awards for drama, including... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/09/emmys-2011-boardwalk-empire.html

'Futurama' a la 'Steamboat Willie'?!

You’ve seen the  clip from the upcoming  Futurama  finale  where the gang spoofs Voltron and other classic anime cartoons, right? But have you seen the segment from later in the same episode that mocks 1920s ‘toons like "Steamboat Willie"? Of course you haven’t, because it hasn’t been released yet. But EW has a sneak peak below. Futurama’s "Reincarnation" episode (which also includes a segment done in the style of early 1980s videogames) airs Thursday, Sept. 8 on Comedy Central. Here’s your exclusive clip: http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/09/03/futurama-finale-exclusive-video/

Futurama Preview: "Overclockwise"

Futurama's sixth season is sadly winding down. " Overclockwise " is another Bender-centric episode which sees the robotic character increase his processing power by so much that he becomes "god-like". It looks like robots will be taking over the world after all.  Due to his super intelligence,  Bender  is no longer willing to aid in his friends' problems. That petty stuff is beneath him, as you'll see in the clip below.  http://tv.ign.com/articles/119/1191766p1.html?RSSwhen2011-08-31_172900&RSSid=1191766&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ignfeeds%2Ftv+%28IGN+TV%29

'Futurama's' Maurice LaMarche - One Of The Hardest Working Voices In Animation

First Look: Futurama Turns Japanese For Season Finale

Futurama was recently picked up for 26 new episodes, which will air on Comedy Central through 2013. But when writers for the animated sci-fi comedy were mapping out the current season (Thursdays, 10/9c), didn't know if this would be their final frontier, so they crafted the season finale (airing September 8), as a potential series ender. "The idea is that it's Futurama reincarnated in three different animation styles...  http://www.tvguide.com/News/Look-Futurama-Turns-1035167.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Futurama Preview: "Law and Oracle"

Feeling frustrated by the fact that his job is going nowhere,   Fry quits and becomes a man of action by getting a job with the police department in this week's all-new   Futurama . Fry won't just be sitting behind a desk; he'll be out busting skulls with the rest of the guys.   " Law and Oracle " draws quite a bit of inspiration from multiple sci-fi movies. We'll not only have a very clever Tron-inspired police chase, but a larger part of the plot has been borrowed from Tom Cruise's 2002 flick,  Minority Report , which is about a police officer who stops crimes before they happen.  Read More... http://tv.ign.com/articles/118/1180907p1.html?RSSwhen2011-07-06_163500&RSSid=1180907&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ignfeeds%2Ftv+%28IGN+TV%29&utm_content=Google+Reader

'Futurama' considers a world of infinite Benders

"Futurama" returns to Comedy Central after a seven-month layoff with a truly scary idea: a world in which there are an infinite number of Benders.That's the subject of the second of the show's back-to-back episodes Thursday (June 23): In "Benderama," the robot stumbles on a way to replicate himself, and in so doing threatens to consume every bit of matter on the planet. Plus, you know, thousands upon thousands of Benders are just way more annoying than a lone Bender.First up, though, is an episode in which the Planet Express crew comes across an alien who can change their gender characteristics. Leela and Amy aren't thrilled with the idea of suddenly being dudes, but Fry, Bender and Co. seem to have a blast with their newfound feminine characteristics."Futurama" airs at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central. A clip from each of tonight's episodes is below.FuturamaFuturama... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/06/futurama-considers-a-world-of-infinite-benders.html
