This rocks.  My wife loves this show as much as I do.  Whatever happened to the averaging of 22 episodes of a season?  Why do I predict buying a 13 episode season on DVD in the future at the same price as my 4 volumes of full seasons I already own?  The practice is bugging me already.
Yes, I will get it, but I think they are wrong to do it this way.

I've never felt much for Family guy or the Simpsons, but I can't think of one Futurama episode I didn't laugh out loud. A great show, it is.
Family Guy is my Favourite
Futurama and The Simpsons are equal in my taste.

Direct-to-DVD Movie "Bender's Big Score". Thought I'd let people know.

That statement's funnier than both shows combined.
I really should comment! But I am already in my pajamas...

I wonder how long it will last.  They have only ordered 13 episodes and it won't debut until 2008.
Good news, indeed.
This is some great news.  I love this show.

Comedy Central Resurrects Futurama
Source: Variety June 23, 2006


Comedy Central has resurrected the former Fox series Futurama, ordering 13 episodes to debut in 2008. The deal builds upon the cable channel's acquisition of the 72-episode library last fall.

Discussions about a revival of the half-hour began in earnest earlier this year between Futurama producer 20th Century Fox Television and series creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen.

Actors Billy West, Katey Sagal and John DiMaggio are onboard for the new episodes that will continue the story of the pizza delivery boy, accidentally frozen for 1,000 years, who wakes up in the future.

Futurama has traveled a course similar to that of animated series Family Guy, which also was cancelled and later brought back after DVD releases and off-network repeats grew a new fanbase
