Huzzah! Futurama, an animated comedy set 1000 years in the future and created by Matt Groening (You know who he is. The creator of Simpsons. See. You do know.), has a chance of being resurrected!
Like Family Guy, Futurama aired on the FOX network for several seasons (where it won 3 emmys) before it was axed and taken off the air. Strong dvd sales and rerun viewership have initiated talks to revive the comedy! Personally I think Futurama is better than Simpsons...maybe even better than Family Guy. But maybe that's just the sci-fi nerd in me talking.
Anyway...things look hopeful.
Oh, and happy birthday little bro!
