There’s a glimpse of hope that Futurama will be back to FOX. The show that aired for about 5 years on FOX was cancelled on 2002 due to poor ratings (according to FOX) and it was because of inconsistent air time by FOX (according to me). I ranted about that on this post. Anyways, Futurama doesn’t lose its fans (like me) and continue to support the show by buying the DVDs. The good sales of DVD signals FOX that it’s a good time to ressurect this great comedic cartoon for its 6th season. See the video of the interview with actor Billy West, the voice of Fry, here.
When nominating on Hulu Award, I always come accross some of my favorite movies/tv shows. And on Best Cartoon Series, there are a couple: Family Guy, The Simpsons, and Futurama. Futurama is my all time favorite cartoon series, made by the same creator of The Simpsons. I even like it more than the first two, but it was cancelled on 2002 (boo!). I don’t have all the DVDs of every season (they had 5), but I used to watch it on Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. But now, they stopped playing it too 😡 Anyways, if you’ve never heard of Futurama, rent the DVD. You won’t regret it 🙂 Oh, in case you’re wondering, Futurama is about Fry, a guy who got frozen on the 20th century and wake up on 30th century. There he befriends a robot named Bender, and work as a delivery guy (w/ a spaceship) to his great-great-great nephew, who also happens to be a scientist.
Continuing the Hulu Award Nomination, this week’s theme is Family and Cartoons. There are 4 new and exiting categories this week and they are: Best Family Movie, Best Anime Series, Best Cartoon Series, and Best Animated Shorts. For cartoon and anime lovers, I’m sure you’ll have your opinions on which series you think deserve an award. It might be tough to pick just one, but don’t worry you can nominate more than one. So comment away 🙂 Again, I’m using excerpt due to the long list of eligible nominees, especially we have the most nominees so far. Click on read more to view the eligible candidates and to comment.

Well, for some people summer is a great time to relax. I totally agree. Another thing that I love about summer, a lot of new TV shows and new seasons of the others.
These past few weeks, I spend a lot of time watching TV when I want to relax or just have nothing to do. And ever since I wrote about Japanese Game Show post and I saw how many people are actually have the same interest as me, I would like to share more about what I watch on TV.
I like funny tv shows, I watch American Funniest Home Videos and other similar programs. So, it’s natural for me to like the japanese game shows on ABC. I don’t watch MXC often though, because I just don’t know when it’s airing (I think it’s usually in the afternoon, when I’m working). Other TV show that I currently watching is: The Mole (also on ABC). It’s a show where a group of players compete and/or play as a team, and one of them is The Mole who will always try to sabotage every mission. The goal of the game is to figure out who’s The Mole, and the player will the most knowledge about the mole will win in the end. It’s on halfway of the game, only 6 players left. I think next Monday, it’s gonna be a recap of the half season.
Another channel that I watch a lot is USA. I’m waiting for new seasons of Burn Notice, Monk and Psych. I like those 3 shows very much, and I do my best not to miss them. And if I do, I’ll make sure watch it online :-P. I love action and I love comedy, so of those 3 my absolute fave is Burn Notice. I didn’t watch the first season when it aired. But I got to watch one of the encore episode and fell in love. So I finished watching the first episode online and can’t wait until next week when season 2 begins. It’s a story about a spy who get fired, so he’s trying to figure out what’s going on while taking “part-time” jobs to help regular people in trouble.
When I’m in the mood for something more serious, I watch Law&Order and CSIs, but not very often. I also watch cartoon. I love watching The Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, Naruto, Bleach, etc. I watch American Gladiator, and I will watch Olympics this coming August. Oh, and I also watch HGTV and Food Network for some ideas. Hmm, that’s all the TV shows I watch, that I can think of now.
