Storyline

Phillip Fry is a 25-year-old pizza delivery boy whose life is going nowhere. When he accidentally freezes himself on December 31, 1999, he wakes up 1,000 years in the future and has a chance to make a fresh start. He goes to work for the Planet Express Corporation, a futuristic delivery service that transports packages to all five quadrants of the universe. His companions include the delivery ship's captain, Leela, a beautiful one-eyed female alien who kicks some serious butt, and Bender, a robot with very human flaws. Written by Ronos

Goofs

In many episodes the Earth's knowledge of things that have happened in the past is lacking, due to an apparent loss of historical documents throughout time (for example, in Season 1 Episode 2 "The Series Has Landed" it is made clear humans don't know the exact details of the first moon landing, or in Season 5 Episode 2 "Jurassic Bark" it is unclear how a 20th century pizzeria operated,) yet many people from Fry's time period are still alive, such as Richard Nixon or Leonard Nimoy's head. Also, even though characters do not know the details of important events in or before the 20th century, many characters make references to popular songs of the past (William Shatner in Season 4 Episode 12 "Where No Fan Has Gone Before", Kif in Season 3 Episode 5 "Amazon Women In The Mood".)

Quotes

George Takei: Yes it was me. And I never would have got away with it regardless of you meddling kids.
Fry: And you knew bombing the Stadium would drive people into the Kabuki Theatre!
George Takei: No, that's not why I did it.
Fry: Why then?
George Takei: I'm Mentally Ill!

Crazy Credits

During the opening, old 1930's cartoons are played on a giant monitor and are different each time. In the episode "Roswell That Ends Well", the cartoon featured in the opening was played in the episode on a small TV. Also when the title appears, a new message appears every time. See more »

I actually like it better than The Simpsons
10 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, I like the Simpsons, but there is just something about Futurama that I like more. It irks me to see people who hate this show and are glad it is cancelled. If you don't like a show just don't watch it...to many shows have gotten a premature axe these days mainly cause television networks haven't realized no show is going to have the ratings of shows from the past. I am sure to all those who hated the show, there have been shows you liked that have been cancelled as well. This one about a pizza boy frozen and waking up in the future was for me quite enjoyable. Which is the kiss of death right there, because if I like a show, it usually does get cancelled and it usually does have a pretty good following, but for some reason the networks still somehow think all shows should average 20 or more million viewers or its a failure.
