The First 90 Seconds of the New Futurama Premiere

And it's traveling down the comedy central channel.

 They've returned to comics, and now they're returning to TV.

So you might recall the teaser the new season of FUTURAMA that we posted here a while back. It was making some coy “meta” references to the show getting a new home on space's “comedy central channel."   Seeing as how this new season’s premiering on Comedy Central on the 24, a scant ten days away, it’d make sense that the first ninety seconds would pop up online as a preview, right? It would make a lot of sense, and we’ve got said 90-sec preview for your viewing pleasure, below.   

Just in case the player isn’t working for you (or if the clip gets taken down), here’s a breakdown of the clip.

== TEASER ==
It’s been more than ten years since FUTURAMA started on Fox and it’s been pleasantly surprising to see the show revived this many times thanks to such a passionate fanbase. I’ve always enjoyed the show on a number of levels. It can make you laugh, but its visuals are surprisingly artistic given how often prime time animated sitcoms opt for no-frills art direction.  This clip is no exception. 


Anyway, I’m probably going to go set my DVR to record the premiere next Thursday, but how about you Comic Vine maniacs? Does this clip make you want to hop on the Planet Express once more, or do you want to tell the crew to bite your shiny metal…

the 24th.  I will DVR it.  Thanks.  I can't wait.
On one of the podcasts someone mentioned how the shows work better as a 30 min show and not so much as a long movie.  I agree, so I can't wait for the show to return.
