IGN top 25 Futurama Episodes


On June 9 it was confirmed that Futurama would be taken out of cancellation and given new life on a new station. Comedy Central has ordered 26 new episodes, to begin airing in mid-2010.

Much like recent television programming with the same situation (Terminator: TSSC, Pushing Daisies, etc.), critical acclaim and a cult-like following could not save Futurama from being cancelled early. Even though Futurama lasted five seasons, Matt Groening and co. have been able to produce 20 seasons of The Simpsons - and it seems as though it will never end. With that in mind, five shorter seasons of, let's face it, Groening's smarter, edgier, and dare I say... funnier animated program doesn't seem fair.

As a way of celebrating the news of the resurrection of one our favorite shows, we have arduously watched the entire series and compiled a list of the best episodes from their first run. So without further ado, here is a list of our 25 favorite episodes.
