On a side note, we named our cats after Futurama characters- Fry,Leela, and Nibbler.
I think Zoidberg would be a great name for a guinea pig.
The first season of arrested was smart. Season 2 was to out there, and I like out there comedies.

Futurama can be little to smart at times. One of the reasons I like it is all the background jokes. If you watch the backgrounds, they usually have a lot going on, usually jabs at us now.

How do you not have Comedy Central? I would do insane without my idiot box, and my direct feed to it.

With hulu and the internet, living without cable is very possible.

Just saw a clip from a new Futurama episode.
Bender and Amy getting together?
Any time random characters in a show start hooking up it feels like they are struggling for material.

They got together a couple of weeks ago. They did it as a metaphor for the current marriage situation. It was a good episode.

I was happy for Amy when she got her pHD, is that weird?
