Holy Bender Bending Rodríguez!

Six years after getting axed by Fox, Futurama is being resurrected on Comedy Central.

A spokesperson for 20th Century Fox Television confirms that the cable net has ordered 26 new episodes of Matt Groening and David X. Cohen's late, great animated series to air beginning in 2010. The studio cites Futurama's "blockbuster" performance on DVD and in reruns on Comedy Central as the reason for its rebirth.

Hmmm... sound familiar?

"When we brought back Family Guy several years ago, everyone said that it was a once in a lifetime thing -- that canceled series stay canceled and cannot be revived," 20th Century Fox TV Chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden said in a joint statement. "But Futurama was another series that fans simply demanded we bring back, and we couldn’t have been happier when Matt and David agreed that there were many more stories yet to tell."

Adds Groening: "We’re thrilled Futurama is coming back. We now have only 25,766 episodes to make before we catch up with Bender and Fry in the year 3000."

I have a hunch Groening isn't the only one doing a happy dance. (That's your cue to start filling up the comments section.)


From here.

Futurama is my all-time favorite show after Farscape and Firefly (Yes, I notice the trend with the letter F).

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

In other cartoon news, years behind everyone else, I've just discovered The Simpsons and it's LOVE.

1. [livejournal.com profile] crumpeteer's post with GIFs from Legend of the Seeker here really makes me want to watch the show. Am shallow.

2. The other day the TV was left on and I saw something that looked really cool - some blond guy was angsting in official-type place. I sat down and promptly watched the episode. Guess what? It was Mentalist and I got horribly hooked on that ep. Plus, everyone who commented on Simon Baker was riiiiight.

3. I watched the latest Futurama movie and I cannot love Futurama any more than I do now!

Ten Couples that need just "do it." This is inspired by the fact that I've found myself sifting through ff.net (yes, indeed) looking for Sousuke/Kaname stories. Additions? Suggestions?

1. Logan/Veronica, Veronica Mars: Almost two seasons! There are limits to what a girl can stand, especially when the chemistry is as combustible as it is with those two. If slow-dancing together is enough to melt my screen, I can only imagine how hot a real get-together scene would be. Come on, after Dullnut, Veronica deserves a good lover. And wouldn't it be nice for Logan to actually do it with someone he loves and who loves him back for a change?

2. Sousuke/Kaname, Full Metal Panic: OK, a blind mouse can tell that you love each other. A blind, mentally challenged mouse. You love each other, you are available and, oh yeah, you risk your lives on regular basis to save each other. The staring at each other in the rain? The almost kiss in scenic locations? The rescuing, and the jealousy. The waiting up by his door waiting for him to come home (Kaname), or disobeying direct orders to save the other (Sousuke)? Stop teasing me, TPTB! Yes, he is clueless emotionally due to his background, and yes, she doesn't want to take the first step, but take pity on me. Kiss already, at least. Besides, face it. No one else will be able to deal with either Kaname's pushiness or Sousuke's off-the-wallness on a regular basis, so you might as well hook up.

3. Doctor/Rose, Doctor Who: What's a trifling 800+ age difference? And what's a nice bloke of a boyfriend? My newest and shiniest OTP so needs to get it on in the back of the TARDIS, it's not even funny.

4. Lee/Kara, BSG: Oh, my OTP. You came so close. Forget Zack. Forget Baltar. Forget Anders. Forget Dee and the Ho of Doom and the Nameless Girlfriend that Lee left behind to be toasted. From the mini, I thought the two were OTP. And TPTB tease us with looks (eye fucking masters, these two), and the kissing, and the drunken desperate making out. Come on, Lee so clearly wants Kara. And short of being brain-damaged, I see no reason for Kara to prefer Lee Lite (a.k.a. Anders) when she can have the real deal. Let Anders bite the big one (Leoben can sit on him), and Kara and Lee get together.

5. Logan/Max, Dark Angel: Come on. Mutually acknowledged love? Check. Mutually acknowledged hotness? Check. Angst and eye fucking and UST? Check. But where is the seeeeeeeeex? Yes, I know, Max's virus would kill Logan on touch, but come on, full-body condom? Not optimal, but you could get really kinky! Considering how hot it was when he was merely examining her tattoos in latex gloves, the possibilities are endless.

6. Mal/Inara, Firefly: I have such a thing for the two of you. Because honestly, if the UST got any hotter, it would become a health hazard. Eye-fucking is all well and good, and so is the angst, and the unconscious kissing, and the crying after you pushed him in someone else's arms, but I am a greedy, greedy, GREEDY bitch and I want more. Not that I should complain, seeing that I got Simon/Kaylee make-out, but I can't help it. I've fallen for the two of them so hard.

7. Lex/Clark, Smallville: Come on. Sexy woobie gazillionnaire, ogling and befriending a teenage boy? Hot and dumb farmboy exchanging lusty longing looks with said millionaire? On second thoughts, I should take them off the list, because they are so doing it already.

8. Aoshi/Misao, Rurouni Kenshin: I have never seen a man more in need of some sex as a means of de-stressing than Aoshi. And let's face it, killer looks or not, not that many women would want to put up with the full of guilt, driven, serious and issue-laden Aoshi. Plus, Misao loves him and wants him, even though she knows him so well, and that's good enough for me.

9. Fry/Leela, Futurama: Because the poor slob Fry is Everyman. And Leela is Everywoman, if Everywoman was a mutant with one eye, flying a spaceship. Because this is Leela's only chance to make out with a guy a thousand years older than she is. And because Bender could sell the videos. Basically, Futurama rules and I couldn't not mention it.

10. Vash/Meryl, Trigun: Come on, when a Catholic Priest is getting more action with his OTP (and I don't mean Jesus) than you two, it's time to get serious. Vash might be close to immortal, but Meryl isn't. Now that Vash's brother problems have been taken care of (or alternatively, just beginning), it's time to settle down and have some adorable rugrats to boss the Deadliest Man Alive silly. She is into you, you are into her, and face it, you won't find another woman to put up with his baggage or another man to put up with he bossiness.

In order, here is my Top 6 show list:

1. Farscape: Best Show Ever. I am not kidding either. Wonderful, angsty, clever characters, OTP to end all OTPs, complicated twisted plots, and really tight plotting and writing. Not to mention all the arcs get resolved. Perfection. I cried, I laughed, I screamed, I participated in the fan campaign.

2. Firefly: Short-lived, but what does it matter when it has 14 amazing episodes plus the best movie of 2005 to its credit? It's snarky, heart-breaking, and wildly creative. Plus, Mal Reynolds is my TV boyfriend.

3. Veronica Mars: I thought, a teen detective? Blech. Boy was I wrong. This is hilarious and deeply sad at once. Not to mention witty and complex and slowly developing characters I am madly in love with. Veronica is tough and shattered and funny and deeply insecure and insanely smart. And Logan is my newest TV crush, what with the snark and the vulnerability.

4. Futurama: I have never seen anything so funny and cynical and creative. Watch it. It's all on DVD.

5. Battlestar Galactica: I am not emotionally attached to the show, but what an intellectual pleasure it is. I like a show that takes no prisoners.

6. Roswell: All the lovely Max/Liz romance turns me into a giddy teen again. It really does get the madly in love feeling right.

Honorable Mention: Buffy: The first three seasons of Buffy were some of the best TV anywhere and would have competed with Farscape for Number 1 space. 4 and 5 weren't as good but had their moments. The last good episode was S6's "Tabula Rasa." Unfortunately the corpse lasted for another 2 years. So only "honorable" mention for Buffy.

Guilty, trashy pleasure: One Tree Hill: It's totally bad. Wooden acting, cliched storylines, too much basketball. But I can't resist the soap and the hot guys.

What are yours?
