Season 9 In Layman’s Terms
All pretty overcomplicated, so in a nut-shell all you need to know is that come June 20th 2012 you’ll have 13 episodes and then a further 13 episodes in 2013 to watch some magnificent Futurama.
Season 7 Episode 1 “The Bots and the Bees”
The premier episode is likely to be “The Bots and the Bees” where the Planet Express gets a new soda machine and Bender impregnates it. This will be followed by Episode 2 called ‘”A Farewell to Arms”
Futurama is the brain child of Simpsons creator Matt Groening and David X Cohen. The show centres on the adventures of a pizza boy named Phillip J. Fry, who accidentally sets off an accident that gets him cryogenically frozen on New Years Eve of 1999, only to be thawed in the year 3000.
Futurama has two Emmy-awards under its belt: Outstanding Animated Program and Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for Maurice LaMarche.
