What can I do to help Hulu renew Futurama for additional seasons? I've already watched the episodes via pirate, but I'd like to now do what I can (including making purchases).

TL;DR Currently, when business decision makers decide whether to renew Futurama for more seasons, what exactly are they looking for? What exactly can/should I do to help that? I've already watched the episodes by pirating them. At this point, is it enough to simply buy a month of Hulu? Or shoudl I buy a month of Hulu, then watch every episode from that account? Or something else?


Hi all,

At this point, when thge business decision makers at Hulu (and/or wherever else) decide whether to renew Futurama for more seasons, what metrics to they examine? Specifically, what exactly can/should I do to help that?

The reason I ask is the following. Because it was by far the easiest/fastest option, I watched all episodes from the most season (season 8; the Hulu season) by pirating the episodes. Of course, when executives are evaluating whether to renew for another season, my viewership will not be counted in any way. What can I do at this point to ensure my viewership is counted?

Is it enough to simply purchase a month of Hulu (or an overseas partner)? Or should I do that, then also login to that service from my TV and watch every season 8 episode? Or watch EVERY Futurama episode?

Thanks in advance.


Of Note

  • I live overseas, in Thailand. With help from another post of mine I determined that a service named Hotstar in my region carries the episodes. Alternatively, since Hulu isn't strictly offered in Thailand, I could use a VPN to pay for a month of Hulu itself. But then I'd have the same question as with Hotstar--do I need to login to Hulu and watch every episode in full? Or should I do something else?
  • I own a smart TV, but never watch it. I don't pay for any TV services at all.
  • If it would help in this exercise, I'd be happy to purchase tangible material, e.g. DVD box sets. But I wouldn't want to retain most. For example, I'd purchase a DVD box set only if I could easily donate it to someone else that would appreciate it.

Bender Easter egg

I am still laughing and my lungs hurt from it. My son is watching kid videos for learning colors. Finding the object that is different. As. I start watching, the dump truck is full of robots. I look closer and it is a dump truck full of benders. I had to rewind and look again. He is still using that phone for his shows so I will update with the show info in a bit. Bite my shiny metal ass people. 🤣🤣🤣

Gets me every time

Watching The Problem with Popplers Episode and I don’t know why it gets me every time when Zapp goes: “We'll need an army of supervirile men scoring round the clock! I'll do my part. Kif, clear my schedule.”

But I swear every time I see this scene I fucking lose my shit laughing. I mean I’m just giggling reading it here in the post.

What’s your quote?

EDIT: can be from any episode this one just gets me.

Question about the show

Question 1: Didn't really know a title for this but in benders big score when he goes back to Sweden to get the Nobel prize, why did he see fry when he was flying away when? I mean fry was in new York and he was in Sweden.

Question 2: If new York (old new York) is underground then why did fry unfreeze in new new York when he was in new York?

Bender + a gun

Does every time Bender handle a gun, he misfires? I.e. when he finds the tommy gun in the Star Trek episode or the crossbow he admires in A Taste of Freedom. The only time I can think of him actually shooting the target is the octopus in the Rome Trevi fountain.

I'd like to think this as a canon characteristic about him. Like, despite having this reputation as a badass, he can't hit anything unless it's literally in front of him 😂

Theory

Fry's family easily could have called Mr. Panucci to ask if they knew where he was, Panucci would have seen Fry's last delivery address and they could have at least checked?

Slave robot sent to the moon

This is just great! An enslaved robot was flung out into the space and bravely hid on the moon from his hooman oppressors!

This "commercial" endeavor by Intuitive Machines will only lead to one thing!

Whalers on the moon and they will carry their harpoons! Robo-slavery!

Why does Futurama take place in New York?

Springfield from The Simpsons is a made-up town, yet Futurama is based off the real-life NYC. Is there a particular reason Groening chose NYC?

Something I noticed after 20 years and can never unnotice

Be warned, you may never unnotice it again either, read at your own risk

The first season and a little bit of the second season, there are lots of stretches where there is no background noise going on whatsoever. Later episodes there's always some kind of music, or sound effect, or enough dialogue going on that you don't really get any silence or isolated sounds, but in those early days it stood out. No idea why I never really noticed or what made me notice ot this time, but I'm on my second trip through season one since then and it's driving me a little nuts lol
