Regarding the [http://theinfosphere.org/Futurama?diff=prev&oldid=44614 recent edit], perhaps we should have a note on here somewhere about the show's rating. In the US, I think most eps are TV-14. Are any of them TV-MA? Do other countries have oppressive TV ratings? If so, what are they for Futurama? --[[User:Buddy13|Buddy]] 23:19, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

I don't think it is correct to say that most of the audience are 'self described nerds' or that most of the jokes in the show are based on the topics mentioned. There are obviously quite a few jokes like that but I think that most of the jokes are jokes that most people will get. The main (television) audience are people who enjoy other sitcoms which don't have as much detail as Futurama, as well as people who are 'self described nerds'.

'Appeal' Section

I don't think it is correct to say that most of the audience are 'self described nerds' or that most of the jokes in the show are based on the topics mentioned. There are obviously quite a few jokes like that but I think that most of the jokes are jokes that most people will get. The main (television) audience are people who enjoy other sitcoms which don't have as much detail as Futurama, as well as people who are 'self described nerds'. Pointw4 10:10, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Concept hints in The Simpsons?

In the episode where Bart & Lisa write for Itchy & Scratchy, under Grandpa's name, after his speech, one guy says "I'm gonna write that sitcom about the sassy, backtalking robot.". Then in the Poochie episode: "So you want a down to Earth, real life show... that's completely off the wall, and swarming with magic robots?!"
