I just found out that those utter cunts over at Sky “have no plans to show the new series of Futurama [in the UK] at the moment. The decision is yet to be made.”
What. The. Fucking. Fuck!
That is so utterly un-cool that I can’t even get my vitriol together to rail at it.
Seriously, I hope whatever money grubbing, corporate prick made that decision fucking dies.
Futurama is the best animated show for adults since The Simpsons and the only reason it got cancelled before was because of the usual Fox fuckery.
Have Sky 1 not got space in their line up for an amazing and creative show?
No, because their line up is chock full of utter shit. Granted, there is some good stuff on there but in the 8pm Thursday night slot, where I imagine Futurama would go, they’re airing Real A&E and Real Filth Fighters. More reality fucking television. I counted over a dozen different reality TV shows on this one channel ON ONE FUCKING DAY!
Not only are these shows the usual vacuous reality shit, they’re being aired between The Simpsons and Lie To Me. That is the ideal spot for Futurama! That slot was made for Futurama. Futurama belongs in that slot.
As it happens I have just cancelled my Sky television and moved back to Virgin. I’m glad I did because, if I hadn’t already, I would be now.
It may seem silly for an ‘adult’ to be so angry about a cartoon not being aired but I don’t care. I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for new Futurama. The mini-series we got over here in the UK (which I believe were released as feature lengths in the US) were good and kept me going for a time but that is not enough.
So, answer me this Sky… Why are you not airing it in the UK?
Are you worried that airing such a creative and amazing show will alert people to the fact that 99.9% of the rest of your line up is shit?
Can you not fit it into your line-up between re-runs of old shows and inane reality TV?
Does it scare you because you are too fucking stupid to understand it?
Fuck you, Sky. I’m glad I cancelled my service and won’t be giving you any money.
You’d only waste it on more shitty Reality TV, anyway.
