Zombie Simpsons Is Off the Air, How About Some Futurama News?

I remain at least slightly nervous about the return of Futurama, but this interview with David X. Cohen (who was David S. Cohen during his time on The Simpsons) is pretty reassuring.  Everybody’s back and Fry and Leela will not be getting married and moving to the suburbs.  The concepts are a clever as ever, and Cohen discusses a number of them.  This may be my favorite:

the Professor invents a time machine that only goes forward in time. Once they start going, there is no hope of return. And the initial goal is to just go a minute forward into the future and test it out, but the Professor trips and they’re immediately 1,000 years in the future with nowhere to go but forward. So they spend the episode going further and further through all future history trying to find the technology for a backward time machine.

There’s a lot more there for anyone else who’s looking forward to the return to the 31st century.

    Can’t wait. I won’t say I wasn’t a fan of the films, but the show is much more enjoyable in the standard episode format. The films did get better progressively as they went on, so I’m hanging out for these new episodes.

      Yeah, the movies were generally disappointing – the second and fourth ones were OK but not up to the standard of the original episodes. Futurama works much better in the half-hour (well, 23 minute) format. Anyway, the episode synopses provided by Cohen in the interview sound good. And a guest appearance by Devo? Good stuff!
