HULU (FINALLY) BRINGS BACK "FUTURAMA"
"My story is a lot like yours, only more interesting 'cause it involves robots." -Bender
On Monday, October 16th, the entire Futurama library - including all four films - will make their long-awaited streaming return, only on Hulu.
Matt Groening, the multiple Emmy(R) Award-winning creator and executive producer of The Simpsons, has hatched another outrageous look at the world, FUTURAMA. But we're not in Springfield anymore - we're in New York, a thousand years from now, and it's like no future you ever imagined!
FRY (voiced by Billy West), a young Everyman, finds himself accidentally transported 1,000 years in the future. Just like right now, life in the future is a complex mix of the wonderful and horrible, where things are still laughable no matter how wild and crazy they get. And against a backdrop of pesky aliens, exasperating robots and malfunctioning gadgets, people still struggle with the same daily anxieties of life and love... and, of course, traffic is still a nightmare!
Having literally escaped his unfulfilled past, Fry uses his newfound sense of freedom to help his friends in the future escape their regimented lives. His companions include LEELA (voiced by Katey Sagal), a beautiful female alien who can kick some serious butt, and BENDER (voiced by John DiMaggio), a hopelessly neurotic assembly line robot. Working together, Fry and his colleagues buck the system in pursuit of happiness. And with each passing day, the future becomes Fry's home.
With his unique satirical humor and distinctive style, Matt Groening has created another unconventional but lovable family. FUTURAMA explores all the joys and disappointments of human existence, as well as some problems we don't have to worry about yet, such as what to do when the cell phone implanted in your thumb dials the wrong number. And while the show has a lot to say about today, more than anything FUTURAMA is a celebration of the future at its wildest.
