  •  On Futurama: (1+ / 0-)

    At 10 1/2 years old, koosah kid is just old enough to really enjoy Futurama.  We recently joined Netflix and our "family TV time" lately has been watching the entire series with him.  Mr. koosah and I had lost track of the series over the years as it drifted around, so this has been pure delight for all of us.  We haven't caught up enough to watch any of the current season yet.

    This series is just wonderful.  It is just edgy enough to be naughty without being necessary for us to send our son out of the room.  It is never mean-spirited in the way that so many animated comedy shows can be.  Even Bender, the King of the Smart Asses, is basically a good friend to Fry.

    The only down side we have experienced is that koosah kid now runs around going "Woo-woo-woo-woo-woo!" like Zoidberg.  "Really?"  I asked my son.  "You want to act like Zoidberg?  Of all the characters on Futurama, you pick Zoidberg?  Why?"  "He's funny!" was the instant reply. "And I'd get in trouble if I tell anyone to bite my shiny, metal you-know-what!"  

    I hope they find a new home.          

       

    Metaphors be with you.
