That's what I'm saying, so by the rules established at the beginning, those references shouldn't exist... And if they do exist they should've been in every season. The Kardashians would be as well known in 3000 as they would be in 3012

Futurama is one of the best shows ever put on television.

Not that The Simpsons and South Park aren't (Family Guy def isn't so that's out) but Futurama has more wit, better characters, but most of all it tells wonderful stories. Some of their episodes could stand with episodes from all time greats.

The original final epidose: The Devil's Hands Are Idle Play Things made me just sit in wonder from beginning to end at the masterful story telling of the episode. And still it's the funniest damn show through it all.

It stands up as a comedy. It stands up as a dramatic story. It stands up in the sci-fi elements (and has some of the better sci-fi episodes too).

It may not be iconic, I'll never argue it's impact vs that of South Park and sure as shit not against the Simpsons which dumps on it from Mars in that department. But it is the best show.

In my opinion at least.

i'm not sure what you are getting at? why should everything that happened in the past be referenced all of the time? shows set in 2012 don't reference everything that happened in the 1980s. why doesn't south park reference cassette players and cyndi lauper?

South Park is light years above anything else. Simpsons was OK 25 years ago but it's Bill Haley to South Park's Beatles.

Prime Simpsoms>>>South Park>Futurama>>>>>>>>>>>Family Guy

Futurama still makes me laugh the most though.

Never could get into Futurama. Early Simpsons is the best. Family Guy and South Park can fight fot that 2 spot.

Last episode was hilarious. But there are only 2-3 awesome, 5-8 good episodes, and rest are avarage in current simpsons seasons.

But I highly recommend watching previous one, pure gold.

The Simpsons is as good as it ever was. Either people overrate the early years, or they are underrating current episodes. Or maybe's people tastes are changing. It's easily the smartest, funniest, and most enjoyable of the bunch.

South Park has great social commentary and can be very funny, but its also uneven. Some episodes are just really stupid. You can tell they made it up last minute. But still has some amazing episodes as well.

Futurama I never watched enough of. I think I just don't care for the characters or the premise or something. Can't get into it but the comedy you can tell is very good and well written.

I don't mention that last show. Complete garbage.

He's not saying everything that happened in the past should be referenced, he's saying that they're making references to things that happened after Fry went to the future so it makes no sense to reference it, because he wouldn't know what they were talking about.

Pop culture references in Futurama have always been kind of stupid if we're being honest though. Why are people from 1000 years from now still talking about the same shit? Calculon and Zapp Brannigan are like the only two celebrities in the year 3000.

To get to the point of the thread. I'd go with Simpsons as the best followed by Futurama, then South Park. Last and certainly least is Family Guy.

Keep dreaming. Your response makes me think you're 12. Too many people here trying to act smart and confrontational who just end up looking stupid.
