The Harlem Globetrotters are solving celebratory math equations tonight, in honor of the much deserved eighth season pick-up of “Futurama” from Comedy Central. The “Futurama” relaunch got off to a rocky start with the black holes that were the DVD movies, but the 6th season scored strong ratings and just got better and better. Now I’m a full supporter of proposition infinity, and I wonder if any of those crazy Japanese robots that pop up on the YouTube are currently on OkCupid.
According to a recent interview with actor Katie Segal (Leela), Comedy Central is funding the continued adventures of Fry, Leela, Bender and Earth’s most unqualified crab-man doctor for another season. The 13 episodes of season seven begin airing this summer, but Comedy Central’s not waiting for those episodes’ reception before green-lighting more. Awesome. It’s time to do a very impressive limbo dance.
