1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    For one beautiful night I knew what it was to be a grandmother. Subjugated, yet honored.

    the question has to be asked:


    what's better futurama or simpsons?

    remember you have to factor in simpsons as a whole (not just the vaunted first 3-5 seasons) all 20 seasons.

    I have to admit after watching this last season, after watching some episodes I'd think: "holy shit that was good".

    The best of the Simpsons is on par with Futurama- however most of the auxiliary characters/archetypes in Futurama (and subsequently the same jokes) are created from their counterparts on the Simpsons... i.e Abe Simpson --> Dr. Farnsworth, Mr. Burns--> Mom, Waylan Smithers--> Mom's 3 sons, Krusty--> Calculon, Chief Wiggum--> URL/Smitty, Fat Tony--> Don Bot, Willie--> Scruffy, etc... The first 5 maybe 8 seasons should get the edge simply for originality.

    Futurama is also more of a niche comedy; you basically need to be an educated 16-30something to derive enjoyment from it. It really is a satire of the "yuppie" and general metropolitan lifestyle- demonstrating that despite 1000 years of progress in the most technologically advanced society we all still suffer from the same human foibles. On the other hand, The Simpsons is accessible to basically everyone by not only the virtue of being a family comedy, but by also employing more universal and culturally relevant intertextual references.

    Dude, what?

    by that same token - don't you think you should only compare the first 6 seasons of the Simpson's to Futurama's 6 seasons? Futurama is written brilliantly, but the Simpson's at it's peak was just as good too.
