It seems like every week there’s a new cartoon I’m supposed to be watching. Archer, Steven Universe, Rick and Morty, Bojack Horseman, Gravity Falls, Adventure Time, a bunch of other ones, and whatever the three new ones that were added to the list while you were reading this sentence. It’s way more than I can keep up with, and I don’t get whatever channels most of them are on anyway.
What I do get, though, is Netflix, and through that I’ve been watching Futurama. Not really re-watching, because when it first came on I saw a few episodes, but it didn’t really grab me. It wasn’t as non-stop as The Simpsons was at the time, and I didn’t watch much TV at that point anyway. By a few episodes into the first season I had stopped with it.
On this watching, I’m almost through season two. I’m not bingeing, just watching an episode while eating dinner usually. I’m really enjoying it. It’s a lot funnier than I thought back at the time. And I love the animation. There’s just something great about how everything moves in it.
So rest assured that while I may not be following Amazing Pig or World of Phlegm or whatever other cartoons are now must-see TV, in fifteen years or so I’ll catch up to them on my 3D Plasmotron Neurovisor while I swallow my food pill.
