How I Met Your Mother Among 20th Century Fox TV Series Headed To Comic Con
Comic Con is a little over a month away, which means we're at the point where we should start hearing confirmation on what TV shows will be showcased at the convention. The list for 20th Century Fox TV's series has arrived online and indicates that a number of new series will be featured with panels, as well as How I Met Your Mother, which will make its Comic Con debut in San Diego to promote its final season.
Futurama Celebrates Final Season Premiere With A Brand New Clip
This isn’t the first time Futurama has released some video footage for Season 7B. Several months ago, the network released the first trailer for the series, which highlights satanic rituals and a The Thing spoof. Overall, Fry and the gang look up to plenty of similarly wild shenanigans and hopefully the last few episodes will lesson the cancellation blow.
Emilia Clarke Will Guest Star In Futurama's Penultimate Episode
Futurama may be ending its run fairly soon, but the series will at least be going out with one big guest star. Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke has signed on to appear in an episode of Futurama’s final Season 7B episodes as a potential love interest for the always-smelly Zoidberg—and it may be a match made in 31st Century heaven.
Futurama Cancelled After Season 7
Comedy Central announced today that Futurama will be ending its run, again. The series, which has been picked up and then cancelled several times and has enjoyed renewed success in recent years, will be ending its run on September 4. A decline in the ratings in 2012 is the likeliest culprit.
Futurama Season 7B Trailer, The Planet Express Crew Is Back!
The first half of Futurama's seventh season ended some time ago, with "31st Century Fox" and "Naturama" airing as the fantastic double bill finale back in August, and finally fans get their first look at footage from the upcoming '7B.' Don't get too excited, no premiere date has been set with the vague 'summer' being the only information provided and that time of year is still a full season way. Like, weather season. Take a look at the trailer for the second half when "The Planet Express Crew Is Back!"
Festivus & More: Non-Christmas TV Holidays For The Rest Of Us
For those of us who don't partake in the Christmas festivities, there are still many great ways to celebrate the winter holidays. And obviously, since there are also many television characters who are also on the outside looking in when it comes to Santa, stockings and trees, not to mention the whole birth of Jesus thing, the small screen offers plenty of plot lines that don't involve chestnuts roasting on an open fire and celebrate, well, a wide range of festivities
Futurama: Volume 7 [DVD Review]
The thirteen episodes included in this set are better as a bunch than the last two DVD volumes, which comprised the whole of the sixth season. This DVD is actually the first half of the seventh season, the second half of which will start playing in 2013. Beyond the prospect of a fistful of cash, I can’t understand the motivations behind this clumsy decision. But maybe I’m just meant to shut my mouth and watch the show non-conspiratorially.
Non-Debatable: 16 TV Characters Who'd Dominate As A Moderator
PBS' Jim Lehrer took some heat for his moderating techniques during last week's 2012 Presidential Debate. Perhaps ABC News' Martha Raddatz will do better at keeping things on track during tonight's Vice Presidential Debate. With that debate set to take place tonight and the next Presidential debate set to take place next week, we got to thinking about some TV characters who might make good moderators.
Futurama Watch: Season 7A Finale, Episode 13 - Naturama
"Naturama" is another of Futurama's triptych episodes, which, to be completely honest, are not my cup of episodes, and last night's second installment joins "Anthology of Interest" and "Anthology of Interest II" as well as "Reincarnation" as the fourth time the series has split the story into three vignettes. Trying to riff on the "Treehouse of Horrors" tradition at their sister show The Simpsons, the "Anthology of Interests" didn't stick around but the triptych device returned last season with the visual feast that was "Reincarnation."
Futurama Watch: Season 7, Episode 12 - 31st Century Fox
Season 7A of Futurama ended just as it began, with back to back episodes and now the Comedy Central animated series won't return for, well, at least a few months. Bad news everybody! Okay, now back to the good news, those aforementioned two installments of the animated comedy that aired as part of the midseason finale last night including Episode 12, "31st Century Fox" and Episode 13, "Naturama."
Futurama Watch: Season 7, Episode 11 - Viva Mars Vegas
The production codes seem to indicate that “31st Century Fox” was supposed to be the episode to air last night and yet we saw "Viva Mars Vegas" instead. I'm not sure why they made the switch but the special 'hand and tentacle made' opening sequence for "Vegas" would have been a nice way to kick off Comedy Central's midseason finale next week. Oh well, I guess the simple, computer generated titles will have to do for Futurama's back to back episode closer, sorry, hiatus, while audiences get the special treat early. "Viva Mars Vegas!"
Futurama Watch: Season 7, Episode 10 - Near-Death Wish
"Near-Death Wish" had (un)surprisingly little to do with Charles Bronson rape-revenge thriller from the 70s but it did return us to the world visited in "A Clone of My Own," an episode that, being the tenth of Season 2, happened to air in one year and ten days after The Matrix was released. Just in case you were wondering. Oh, and Bismuth is not only number 83 on the periodic table of the elements but also a pentavalent poor metal and, even if slightly radioactive, is the highest atomic mass element that is stable. Now that we're all caught up let's check in at The Clippie Awards!
Futurama Watch: Season 7, Episode 9 - Free Will Hunting
Not to sound glass half-empty but this half-season of Comedy Central's Emmy award winning animated comedy is already more than three quarters over! Sorry to bear the bad news (and be a bit confusing) but it's worth mentioning that there are only four episodes left in Futurama's 7A, especially since two of them will air on the same night as a mid-season finale. That means, there are only three remaining weeks of Futurama this year, a prospect even more depressing since "Free Will Hunting" was only an average installment.
Futurama Watch: Season 7, Episode 8 - Fun On A Bun
Futurama hasn't been too concerned with crafting overly emotional episodes this season except for the very first two, "A Farewell to Arms'" and "The Bots and The Bees" but last night's "Fun on a Bun" was a welcome return to the sentimental. The Hermes and Zoidberg relationship thread in "The Six Million Dollar Mon" was sweet in its own Silence of the Lambs meets Jimmy Nelson kind of way but not like the great love stories for Fry and Leela (or Seymour). The episode certainly opens in the perfect place for love, Germany! There is no place like the Neander Valley during Ocktoberfest.
Futurama Season 7, Episode 8: Fun On A Bun
Futurama's Planet Express crew is headed to Oktoberfest for "Fun on a Bun" but it's not the same wild, beer soaked event it is today. And Fry is pissed. First, off and then drunk, causing quite the scene at the now snooty festival. You would think that Bender would be the one most concerned with the lack of alcoholic consumption but his eyes are on a different prize, winning the sausage competition.
