Ever wonder what it would be like to be cryogenically frozen and wake up a thousand years in the future? Well the animated comedy series Futurama poses the hilarious answer to this question. Focusing on the life of Phillip J. Fry, a pizza delivery boy who finds himself cryogenically frozen on new years night during the year 2000, only to be woken up on new years day 3000, in the city of New New York. Built on top of the modern day city, what is referred to as Old New York, New New York is the epitome of 31st century technology, with flying cars in the air and alcohol-fueled robots walking the street. A satirical parody on the modern city of New York, New New York takes the problems of today and exaggerates them to extreme levels, with everything from mutants living in the sewers to robots causing global warming.

Fry soon finds himself working at the package delivery service, Planet Express. Made up of the cyclops Leela, the brilliant but senile, Professer Hubert J. Farnsworth, who is Fry's own nephew, and the robot simply named Bender, the three of them often finds themselves traveling to distant planets to deliver everything from pillows to honey from a bee hive planet. The cast also includes the companies much hated crustacean doctor, Zoidberg, as well as the ditzy Amy Wong and the rastafarian Hermes Conrad.

Dealing with many of todays issues behind the veil of a future Earth, Futurama uses many different types of humor to turn many of todays economic and political problems into jokes that everyone can appreciate. The diverse cast and many random celebrity appearances make the show unpredictable and always one step ahead of what audience thinks will happen next. The adventures of Fry as he works with Planet Express never get old and make for an exciting look at what just may be the future of our precious planet.
