Comedy Central’s Futurama Makes a Fantastic Last Season

As if the end of summer vacation was not bad enough, we now have to face the end of the season for Comedy Central Futurama. The good news is that the cable is easing the pain by offering two back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, August 28 at 10 p.m. (9 p.m. Central). The first episode, which is titled 31st Century Fox, features the voice of Captain Picard himself, actor Patrick Stewart. In the episode of Futurama, Bender becomes a fox hunting enthusiast, joining the Hunt master (Stewart) on a high-class outing. However, his love of the hunt turns to outrage when he realizes they are hunting not a regular flesh-and-blood fox, but rather a poor, innocent robot fox. Determined to take a stand for robot rights, he sets out to sabotage the next hunt only to find his plan has gone horribly wrong when he himself becomes the hunted.

In a three-part extravaganza entitled Naturama, the Futurama crewmembers are reborn as wild animals struggling for survival in their native habitats. First, Salmon Fry faces vicious predators, towering waterfalls, and the obnoxious Salmon Zapp Brannigan, as he races upstream to mate with the lovely one eyed Salmon Leela. Next, Tortoise Professor an ancient and nearly extinct Galapagos tortoise makes an epic journey to track down the last surviving female of his species. Finally, the huge, blubber-filled Elephant Seal Bender battles to the death to keep all other males away from his vast harem of adoring females. These characters have made the final season of this show a super hit and the makers of the show are stating that, they will return with a new series.
