I've already shared this on Facebook and Instagram but not on my website. I have more after this photo so read on.
Today happens to be the 15th anniversary of the premiere of my favorite show. So what's there to love about Futurama? Why should you watch a 15 year old television program? Well, for one, it's set one thousand years in the future! There are robots, space ships, killbots, aliens, time travel, moon gators, space hobos, giant space bees, a reptilian space pope, hypnotoad, and the list goes on. It's crude, it's smart, it's touching, and it's funny. It's still hard for me to watch the episode Jurassic Bark because of the ending.
This is a show that dares to dream, and it dares us to dream with it. Every episode is a new adventure. You never know if you'll end up in another universe with the Planet Express crew, or if they'll be fighting against a gigantic robotic President Nixon on Earth. They even visited the inside of the sun once (apartments are pretty expensive on the sun, apparently) to rescue some miners.
So happy 15th birthday, Futurama. My advice to you is watch it if you haven't already. I know, I know. It's a cartoon, and cartoons are for kids, but it's really good stuff. I promise, you won't be disappointed.
