Futurama will return, hopes Groening

Futurama: coming back?I've always noticed that other countries seem to appreciate Matt Groening's humor more than we do here. Sure, The Simpsons is a long-running hit here, and has a huge fan base, but it seems like it's damn near revered in England, for instance, to the point where you hear more Brits quoting Homer Simpson than quote Monty Python. So it's no surprise to see that Australia's The Syndey Morning Herald has the scoop about a possible return of Groening's other great series, Futurama.  According to Groening and writer David X. Cohen, DVD sales of old episodes and the return of Family Guy under similar circumstances has bouyed their hopes that the show will return soon.

"Three months ago, I would have said we were going to start tomorrow," says Cohen in the article. "And one month ago I would also have said we were going to start tomorrow. So... my current estimate is that we're starting tomorrow."
Funny stuff. And there will be more of that in the works if Futurama comes back. I always felt that it was a better show than Family Guy (and might be even better than The Simpsons at this point), and that FOX never gave it a chance in its five fractured seasons on the network. If Peter, Stewie, and company get a second chance, why can't Fry, Leela, and Bender?

About time. Please let this come to be. The Simpsons has run its course. Let's start concentrating on the future.
