Hatched from the mind of The Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Futurama blasts contemporary culture and science fiction alike. Hapless NYC pizza guy Philip J. Fry is accidentally flash-frozen at a cryonics lab on New Year’s Eve, 1999. Reawakened in 31st century New New York, he finds work at his great-great-etc. grandnephew’s Planet Express delivery service. Together with his hedonist robot buddy Bender and cyclopsian love interest Leela, Fry travels to the farthest reaches of the universe, discovering strange alien life forms, velour-clad lotharios, freaky mutants, intergalactic conspiracies and the disembodied heads of celebrities throughout the ages.
