Quote from: Thursday on September 27, 2023, 12:06:25 AMI've watched the last series of Disenchantment, and actually quite enjoyed it on the whole, but they're constantly referencing things from the present day which don't actually exist in that world. It's weird.
Quote from: Thursday on September 27, 2023, 12:06:25 AMAnd in NuFuturama they always have just barely exaggerated futuristic versions of things we have today and it's soooo boring. I don't understand why you would only ever fill with your SF or Fantasy show with references and jokes about the real modern world instead of focusing on the unique premise to inspire stories and humor from that.
Quote from: MojoJojo on September 27, 2023, 09:58:14 AMI wonder if there's an embarrassment that the set up of the shows is quite old fashioned, and there is references are an attempt to make to feel relevant. Or maybe the writers/producers feel old and out of touch.
Quote from: 13 schoolyards on September 27, 2023, 04:31:20 PMI've probably expressed it really badly, but I still think science fiction in the late 90s was (generally) a cool, forward looking, optimistic genre (even cyberpunk made the future look excitingly grim), and Futurama tapped into that whole "Wired magazine" zeitgeist a bit even if the show's specific future wasn't much like that.
Quote from: Old Nehamkin on September 27, 2023, 11:05:16 AMWhereas now the whole setting and premise of the show feel like they have shrunk into this shabby, arbitrary sci-fi set dressing for a series of limp topical riffs while the characterisation has devolved into incoherent mush.

Quote from: Old Nehamkin on November 10, 2023, 01:22:42 PMEverything Everywhere All At Klutz: Amy is the character who is chinese so she embarks on an epic inter-dimensional adventure which forces her to confront her own strained relationship with her mother, who also is chinese. Or maybe it's her mother who goes on the adventure because that would be more like the film. Year of broadcast 2026.
