Comedy Central’s Futurama is more science than fiction, Discovery.com


Comedy Central's Futurama is more science than fiction, Discovery.com

Futurama has been tied to Fox, Comedy Central, the Simpsons, Matt Groening, the concept of cancellation and the concept of renewal during it’s span of the past decade or so. Now, the folks over at Discovery.com are trying to tie the popular animated series to relaity, claiming the sci-fi series might have a little more science than fiction to it. As Fry, Bender, Leela, and the rest of the Planet Express crew do their best to entertain us, Discovery also points out a number of ways in which the toon uses actual science, and reality-based scientific theory, including a Futurama Theorem, to connect to things that could actually happen. Maybe that doesn’t necessarily mean squid-faced people, but there is something to it! What parts of Futurama do you wish were real?
