A Cruel Hoax

Among the many tragedies in life, one of the greater includes the continued production of new Simpsons episodes, while the far superior Futurama met an untimely end after only 4 seasons.

But lo and behold, could the hand of fate have undone this cruel injustice?
Our friend Billy West has once again spilled the beans. According to a post he made on his message board, Futurama is going to be renewed for television with 26 episodes. No word as to what station it will be on, who will rejoin the cast, or whether it'll be two seasons that would consist of 13 episodes each or one HUGE season of 26 episodes. Please keep in mind though, all this information is still very unofficial. Nothing is down on paper. No contracts signed. Nada. NOTHING. But, it's still pretty awesome.

Of course you realize, I did wet my pants in the manner of an overstimulated puppy at this point. But alas, when you read to the bottom of the post, you discover that it was just a hoax, a rumor spread by the misinformed.

*Sniff* Why, Groening? Why do you toy with us so?

I cannot comprehend why on earth Futurama remains cancelled, but they're bringing back King of the Hill for an eleventh season.

Not to knock King, but ten is enough. Four, conversely, not enough.

"/* ?

That should be Futurama and King of the Hill, respectively. Html problems, it seems.

I certainly can not defend the new episodes of The Simpsons. Quite frankly, they're not very good. The writers are reeeally stretching and are often re-using old ideas. And, I certainly think new episodes of Futurama would be great. BUT!! I still think it is wrong to imply that Futurama is a "far superior" show to The Simpsons. That's blasphemy, my dear cousin.
