I remember checking Jeffs profile a while ago, and saw on his hate list, that he included futurama. Why is that?
It dosent bother me at all, but as you can see, i am a futurama fan. It dosent bother me at all that Jeff hates it, and thats cool. But im curious why he would include this on his list? i mean, its such a small thing, and its not really a super well know show. It just dosent seem to be a thing to hate. I mean i really dont like family guy, properly in the same way jeff dosent like futurama, But i wouldnt include this on any list i would make. 
 
has he adressed this ever? 
 
also, perhaps im obsessing to much over a tiny thing?
 
i dunno

Yeah I wanna know too, I freaking love Futurama and I wanna know why someone would hate it
 
Also, I just found out that Futurama is back this summer, fuck yeah!

He hates Futurama?!?
 
HE MUST PAY!!!!!

Because he hates lots of things. I find that Jeff and Ryan hate a lot of things for no reason.

Jeff hates a lot of things. He has a strange taste in pretty much everything.

i know that Ryan and Jeff hates alot of things, and they have said this on a number of occassions, but really, i think its mostly joking

First season is kind of bad. They recycled jokes from the Simpsons, and as big of a fan of puns as I am, they went for a lot of low hanging fruit. It got smarter later on and most of the movies were pretty solid (I actually think they should have just continued making movies instead of bringing the show back personally). I can see why Jeff watching certain episodes of Futurama would make him not a fan.

#8 Posted by Pie (7073 posts) -

Thats weird, the staff make futurama references sometimes (zoidbergs "woop woop woop") and I swear Jeff has. A lot of that happened in the P4 ER but I guess that might of all been Vinny

Yet 1 more reason Jeff is my hero.

#10 Posted by bhhawks78 (1203 posts) -

Because it's awful why else?

#11 Edited by Demigonis (192 posts) -

Jeff seems to have a lot of strong opinions, both positive and negative, about a lot of things. It kind of makes sense being a critic and all. Some things just rub people the wrong way for rational reasons or not.

not helping, adding anything to the conversation, other than HATEFUEL/OBVIOUS TROLLING LOL SO HARD

Anyone who is upset that someone they don't even know thinks their tv show/game/music/movie is dumb deserves to be upset at themselves for being insane more than anything else.

@Jethuty: so anytime somebody doesn't like something someone else likes it is trolling? So the only time we are allowed to post in a forum is when we have pure unadulterated love for the subject?   There have been several posts where people post that they don't like something I do.  Somebody just posted that they didn't like Assassins Creed which I think is a really good game but I didn't get upset and call them a troll.

I guess Jeff is a troll for not liking what the OP likes. Good going Jeff jeez.

nope, but the fact that you disregard several points i made in my post, and the fact that you go straight after the man instead of the ball. The only purpose your comments have, is to start a flamewar/make me rage, and i really dont care for it.
 
hey, you can have different opinions, we cant all like the same things, because that would be horrible, but thats not what you intended. its pretty fucking clear and im not going to feed this any more. 
 
if you actually have something worthwhile to add to the conversation, be my guest. if not, get out
 
i can spot the difference between a troll and a person with a different opinion, but boy, you reak of troll.

I don't think anyone is upset here. The OP simply seemed curious if there was a documented reason for Jeff's distaste of Futurama.

Dude you are an asshole.  The OP just wants to know why Jeff does not like the show.  The OP is not crying over it.
 
Anyways, it's better to send it in as a Bombcast question.  Or maybe Jeff might come across this sooner or later.

You can't hate Futurama. It's just impossible.

#25 Posted by SoothsayerGB (1468 posts) -

 
Maybe he is being sarcastic.  Like with the whole "anime is for jerks" thing.    
 
Also I like the show, but I don't want them to come back to TV.  The Simpsons is one of the worst shows around now.   Its just a paycheck for them.  I don't want them to do that to Futurama too.  
 
Seriously, the Simpsons should just give up.  They haven't had even a decent episode in years.  Its sad to see such a epic awesome show reduced to pure crap.
 
50 bucks on Futurama being turned into crap in order to compete with Seth Macfarlane shows.  Maybe Jeff can just see the future of the show.  He knows it's better to burn out then to fade away.
 
 

 
 
 
  The show died when they made homer gay.

This, im seriously worried for the future of futurama. Either its going to be a glorious return. Or most likely. The new simpsons for nerds.

Thanks bro, Thats exactly what my post was about, but assholes are going to be assholes. 
 
Also, i dont think that would be used as a bombcast question or brought up. you think it would?

Jeff Gerstmann became famous for hating things people love you know.

Mankind's greatest creations goes something like this: 
 
Scrubs > Futurama >>>>>>>>> Everything else.

im a pretty laid back guy, and i usually block stuff like this out. But you come into "my" thread, start making stupid accusations and statements no one really cares about, with the only intent to piss me off. stop telling me to stfu and go away please
#30 Posted by Shadow (4979 posts) -

Jeff also doesn't like anime.  Clearly, he's a bad person who hates anything wonderful in the world.

#31 Posted by Babylonian (837 posts) -

Honestly? I'd wager that he hates Futurama fans more than he actually hates Futurama. Futurama fans tend to be the sort of obsessive, awkward, spergy nerd stereotype, and that is entirely what Giant Bomb isn't about.

#32 Posted by Delta_Ass (3274 posts) -

I don't think Jeff was being sarcastic when he said anime was for jerks.

Sweet Betsy Ross, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU JEFF

#35 Posted by FreakAche (2951 posts) -

Futurama seems alright from what little I've seen of it.
 
This thread is pretty weird though. Why do you care what Jeff thinks? He's a game critic, not a TV critic.

#36 Posted by Jethuty (1023 posts) -

i wish more people would read what i posted to start with. Why does everyone have to be a dick?
 
god this commuity.

#37 Posted by emkeighcameron (1876 posts) -

I LOVED Futurama the series.
 
I really disliked the movies. The first one was OK, all the rest.....really bad.
 
Hope the series doesn't turn to fail the way the Simpsons has.

#38 Posted by Ariketh (606 posts) -

I have a dislike for Futurama, Family Guy, and South Park. I wouldn't say "hate" yet, because my knowledge of them is pretty limited, but I tend to find those shows simply unappealing to me in any way. I used to think it was an age thing, but now I am starting to wonder if it is simply a me thing.

#39 Posted by Muttinus_Rump (814 posts) -

Wow, there's a whole lotta douche in this thread.
 
But seriously, different strokes...

#40 Posted by Kenobi (372 posts) -
@Pie: Zoidberg copied that from a early 20th century actor.
#41 Posted by Griddler (3344 posts) -

Because it's a bad show.

#42 Posted by Jrad (621 posts) -

Wait, since when has Futurama been associated with nerds? I'm a pretty nerdy guy for the most part and don't care for it much. Meanwhile, my parents find it hilarious. (?)

#43 Posted by HypoXenophobia (1045 posts) -

From listening to the Hotspot, there is also hate for Family Guy season 2 forward.

#44 Posted by Kou_Leifoh (1891 posts) -

I'm the one that put that. 
 
Jeff said that he hates Futurama years ago on the HotSpot. Mr. Davis was on that episode and he was talking about how glad he is that Futurama is going back on the air. Then Jeff said that Futurama is an awful show.

I think we all need to send each other the best videos of adult animated shows that we hate.  Like if some dude doesnt like Aqua Teen Hunger Force then I'd send him the Hand banana episode and if that doesnt change his mind then he never speaks about that series negatively again.  Just that he doesnt like it. 
 
So... I hate futurama, I'm not fond of Robot chicken, and.... I don't know many others.  So send me some of the greatest episodes of those to change my mind. 
#46 Edited by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

I thought I heard a song in one of the interview videos that sounded a LOT like the Futurama theme.  That's usually when they play the staff's own music.
 
Futurama is in my top three TV series ever. Maybe number one.
 
I expect nearly everybody to hate the show my avatar is from: Xavier - Renegade Angel.

#47 Posted by Brodehouse (9793 posts) -

Jeff is in need of this.

The only thing I got from the original post is you want to know why Jeff doesn't like Futurama and if you take all the post out that didn't answer the question then the thread would be blank because Jeff hasn't come in here to explain his dislike for Futurama and every speculation as to why is met with you calling the poster a troll.  The only reason he wouldn't like it is for negative reasons and you get mad when somebody says something negative about the show.  It would be like me asking why doesn't somebody like Halo and then getting mad when somebody says something negative about it.  By the way calling it "your" thread is childish.  You put it out here so it becomes the community's thread.
#50 Posted by jmrwacko (2443 posts) -

Futurama ain't funny. But that's just my opinion. And often Jeff's opinion seems to mirror mine. So there you go. The fact that Jeff hates Futurama is MY fault.
