Description: Welcome to New York! A thousand years have passed. A future like you never imagined awaits you. A 25-year-old pizza delivery boy whose life was worth nothing accidentally froze to death in 1999. December 1 He wakes up in the future, a thousand years later, and can start all over again. Series 1.
I have to admit that watching Futurama after all these years was like coming home from a long trip and getting into a warm bed. I felt nostalgia, the simpler life I had in my youth... in a word, everything was mixed up. If you were a fan of the old Futurama, I guarantee you will feel the same way. And in general, almost nothing has changed here, and this is both for good and for bad (more on that later) - all the pluses for this season apply to the previous ones as well. In my opinion, the main strength of Futurama is the characters. This team is made up of the weirdest, dumbest, but also cutest space delivery guys. Each character is pushed but never becomes too obnoxious or stuck in the same story circle like some Simpsons. However, my personal favorites are definitely Bender and Dr. Zoidberg is like two different sides of a coin that are quite similar and often have the role of supporting freaks. But many of Futurama's funniest scenes are precisely on the shoulders of these characters.
The fact that Futurama has so many popular MEMES should tell you how many good ideas and good comedy there are. Although this series mainly focuses on the comedy aspect, the strongest part of the whole story is the emotions. I'll be honest, Futurama can create heart-wrenching episodes and characters that you just want to hug sometimes. If you don't believe that, I suggest you watch the episode "Jurassic Bark" and then tell me something. Even this season, although it has more satire about the current society, still does not forget the feelings and fears of the characters. That alone makes it so easy to jump back into this world because the characters feel real and you already know them like a skin. Futurama is such a good mix between Rick and Morty and The Simpsons.
I can't say that everything here works as well as it used to, or even as well as I remember. On the one hand, you and I have changed and I think we all look at things a little differently than in 2005. When you look at the current animated series, their stories, and how they present them... You can really feel the progress in the seriousness or complexity of the themes. In places, Futurama can seem…um, a little behind and late for a departing train. The current season seems to borrow a lot from Rick and Morty and South Park at times. Several scenes are more reminiscent of the style of these sitcoms than Futurama. Well, sometimes the quality of the animation itself can seem a little cheaper, again compared to what we have now. But Futurama has always been The Simpsons' smaller, more earnest sister.Overall - 9/10
