A show made by Matt Groening, creator of the Simpsons, that takes place in the future with a character who was cryogenically frozen and awakened 1000 years later.
Not as good as everyone says. It has its really funny episodes, but the rest are average at best. Especially now that they're going in the direction of continuity and big story instead of just mindless humour which is what it is supposed to be about, like its counterparts Family Guy and The Simpsons.
A nameless guy: Did you see Futurama last night?
Me: No, I'm sick of it
First guy: Are you serious? It's the best show ever!
Me: futurama nerd
