Years from now, the world will wonder how we ever allowed a show as amazing as Futurama to get canceled multiple times.
The simple premise of an intergalactic delivery service going on wacky misadventures (combined with the will they/won’t they relationship between Fry and Leela) proved to be fertile ground for comedy. However, the show had more than just solid jokes. It was filled with heart-breaking moments that hit you right in the feels, and it eerily predicted the future more than once. The writers’ room was filled with incredibly brilliant talent, and one story in particular really exemplifies the effort the cast and crew went to make sure the show was as perfect as it possibly could be.
