Good News, Everyone

Futurama is back:

In 2005, Groening and Cohen met with Fox execs to discuss the possibility of bringing the show back for a feature-length DVD. “It was a great meeting,” Cohen says. “One of the first things we heard was that two DVDs would work better than one.” The network eventually agreed to fund four features, which would be divided into 16 episodes for syndication—nearly a full season.

David X. Cohen:

As a general rule, I hate watching TV or movies with mathematicians in it. It never rings true. They’re portrayed as magic beings. There’s an implication that a normal person can’t do math because they don’t have this magic power, which is very discouraging. You don’t have to have Math-Ray Vision.
