  • UPDATE: I posted my review of series in this post HERE
.As one trailer says..."You've seen the future in Futurama. You've seen the present in Springfield. So what is the obvious third move? The past of course! Welcome to Dreamland."

Season 1 Coming August 17 on Netflix.

See the Trailers HERE

........okay done being the "In a world where...." guy. I am not sure about this. I will certainly give it a try when launches on Netflix, but I am not sold yet.

  • I’ll give it a miss. I’m not a fan of futurama I saw a season and I didn’t enjoy it. I do love the Simpsons though.
  • This is the first that I have heard of this and I have Netflix. Thanks for the heads up! Will check it out.
  • It actually looks quite funny. Might give it a go.

    I will go into it with an open mind.......but that is kinda my thought too......LOVE the Simpsons......never could get into Furturama.....but will certainly give this a least a fair shake.

    BTW @pepsimax .....that is my ultimate favorite drink!

    Same here, interested in the show but in Netflix either tbh.

    Any word about a series 1 box set release for either DVD or Bluray?
  • It is now live. They released all 10 episodes (Season 1) at once.

    I haven't watched an episode yet....but I will give the entire first season a fair shake with an open mind (and not just judge the series after only watching the pilot).

    The initial IMBD rating is 7.6...which is really respectable score there.

    Rotten Tomatoes is currently running at 60% (with only 47 reviews)

    Here is a NY Times Review.

    Well....I got a FireTV on Prime Day a few weeks ago to replace an older Roku. There are some advantages (like being able to install Android apps....even though they counterproductively removed the SD card slot), I am never buying a FireTV again.

    Last night I tried to watch Disenchantment on NetFlix but it wouldn't load it. I click on it, goes blank as it should just before loading it, and then just back to home page. NetFlix worked since I got the FireTV 4 weeks ago and it would load Hulu / Amazon / Crackle / etc.... no problem. But only starting last night refused to load NetFlix denying me all access to Disenchantment.

    Rebooting it / unplugging it / uninstall & reinstall NetFlix didn't help. I had this happen with another app on the FireTV .....worked fine, then wouldn't start (just jump back to homepage when loading), and then after a week it worked again with me doing nothing.........and I just chalked it up to being a less used glitchy app. But now this starts to establish a trend.

    I am now shopping this weekend to buy the latest Roku to replace the latest FireTV that I bought to replace my last Roku.
  • Matt just did an interview with Seth Myers. He's awesome, he drew a little sketch on the show, made me think of his game character's little sound bite.
    "You're the most negative person I've ever seen on here. Constantly."
  • just finished the entire season
    i was not expecting anything like that in the penultimate episode and the final one i cannot wait for season 2. i cried at Elfos funeral.

    the show was fantastic i thought it was better than Furturama but not as good as the Simpsons.
    pls no hate for the spoiler if you don.t want to know don't read.

    Loving it. Very funny.
    "I'm drowning!"
    "I'm Elfo."
  • Just watched the first episode. Not overly impressed but I didn’t hate it either. I’ll watch some more of it and see if it’s really worth continuing.

  • Apparently my posts require approval now and get approved several times. :D

    I watched the Pilot......have not watched any other episodes yet.....

    It had elements you would expect in a pilot. It takes time to establish
    • Several points in the it's world...i.e. political environment, general attitude of the people in different areas of this world, etc..
    • Gives some foundation backstory for each of the main characters
    • And takes awhile till the main characters all come together

    Not sure if I will put at the same level as The Simpsons (yet at least), but I have to say that I am looking forward watching some more episodes.....

  • I have seen an episode and a half, i havent dismissed it yet. Plan on watching the season before deciding. The first couple of episodes in a new series are always different than the rest, for the exact reason Hobbes above stated.
  • I watched the first episode last night. The animation was well done, the storyline could have been better but wasn't bad. It was good enough for me to continue watching for now.

    @mystery2mi I totally agree that I really like the combination of using computer animation (i.e. smooth camera movement with maintaining exact perspective as it rotates around) with still keeping the traditional Matt Groening style and feel.

    I do think they missed an opportunity to have a totally unique and catchy theme song.
