Re: Futurama or The Simpsons?

Yeah, I like them both equally too. They're both hilarious too. I could go on for hours about why I like them both so much, but, as I said, that would take hours and way too much space.

That was pretty bad. But I usually use the one where Homer is raped by a panda is the well, start of the decline. Or like, the biggest realization of it.

Its a bit more watchable than the past few seasons, but the plotlines are still on the line of stupid and without substance in general. Jokes are kind of awkward at times and the characters still haven't retained their depth. Homer is still unrealistically stupid and not funny at that.

Re: Futurama or The Simpsons?

I like The Simpsons. I've seen it more, like the characters more and... I just think it's funnier... I'm not saying Futurama isn't funny. Because it is. I just like The Simpsons more.

Re: Futurama or The Simpsons?

I favor the simpsons, however i do get a few laughs from futurama. both of them were created by matt groweing, who is actually from my home town of portland oregon. Even though fox has kept the secret of where exactly is "springfiled". people have said springfiled in Illinois, but the truth is; its based from springfeild, oregon which is a smaller city next to eugene, oregon. however the land scape and the way the streets are formed in the simpons is exactly the way it is in Portland (where im from). also, there is a numberd street in portland, and while driving fown this street, you will pass the streets of : flanders, quimby, love-joy, wigem, and a few more. just thought i would trow this at people. but yeah, i watch both of them, but watch more simpsons.

Re: Futurama or The Simpsons?

Um, there's a reason why The Simpsons are still on the FOX and Futurama isn't...

I do however think the decline of The Simpsons is being grossly exaggerated, at least slightly. The old stuff was great (seasons 1-8). I found the show slid a little downhill during the "Mike Scully era" (Seasons 11-12). After that, Al Jean did bring the show back to its standards a little but that didn't show until later. Seasons 15 and 16, in particular, are very, very good seasons. So far, the current season has been a little disappointing.

...Oh, and fireball, "Simpson's Safari" was one of the worst episodes.

Tangent aside, I like Futurama too, for various reasons. Bender, in particular, really cracks me up. It shouldn't have been canceled, I say. I blame Rupert Murdoch. Still, I like The Simpsons much more.

Sorry for the tangent... I'm such a massive Simpsons nerd.

Futurama has actually made me cry - especially in "Slipping" and "Bark", and one in the first few seasons where Leela finds out who her parents are, and that they've been watching over her her whole life.

*sniffle* Gets me right here.

Simpsons used to have soul. My favourite eps - and the only Simpsons to ellicit a deep emotional reaction - were the one where Homer meets his mother, and the one where Homer tells the story of Maggie's birth. The last one especially, when he covers the soul-sucking mantra on his workstation wall with pictures of Maggie so it reads, "Do it for her."

When I catch the Simpsons I usually like it, but Futurama was the funniest show on television. My favourite show, next to Buffy. I hope the DVD movies come through (for both, as I discovered today that there's discussion about a series of direct-to-DVD movies from the Buffy-verse).

Re: Futurama or The Simpsons?

I like futurama better. I like Dr.Zoidberg, Bender's bite my shiny metal ***, and the plotline.

Re: Futurama or The Simpsons?

I think the older Episodes of the Simpson's are about on the same level as episodes of Futurama, but as of lately, the Simpson's have gone down hill quite a bit. Though some of the newer episodes are hilarious, some of them are quite dull.

So, I find them both pretty funny and therefore, rate them the same.

Re: Futurama or The Simpsons?

simpsons is definitly a greater television show with the empire it has built, but personally i like them both equally, if now futurama more.
but that may be because i haven't watched it in a while and the simpsons are getting boring.

I get scared of Matt Groening's "yellow people" idea. Not to offend real yellow people, if there is any.

I caved into months and months of Mr Spork going,
"Can you get season one of the simpsons fireball!" so I guess I can finally judge which ones are better on DVD.

Re: Futurama or The Simpsons?

I like both of them equally. But the Simpsons are getting a little stale sometimes. Futurama is funny but I wish they had new episodes. Overall I just like them equally. They both have thier moments.
