9:00pm – Sunday, January 6 on FOUR

This week sees Futurama concluding its latest, seventh season with an episode which sees the hit animated series re-imagined in three different animation styles. Futurama screens on Sunday, January 6 th at 9pm on FOUR. Futurama was recently picked up for 26 new episodes, but when writers were mapping out the current season, they didn’t know if this would be their final, so they crafted the season finale as a potential series ender.

“The idea is that it’s Futurama reincarnated in three different animation styles,” says executive producer David X. Cohen. “One is in [Max] Fleischer black-and-white style, one in a 1980s video-game style and one in a Japanese anime style.”

“We’re going to go out in style,” adds Cohen. “And then we’ll be back next year.” Make sure not to miss the Futurama season finale, screening on Sunday, January 6 th at 9pm on FOUR.

8:30pm – Thursday, August 4 on FOUR

If there was ever a time for Futurama fans to go on a bender, that time is now. After 11 years, two production networks and a whole bunch of time off in between, Matt Groening’s animated comedy celebrates its 100 th episode on Thursday, August 4 th at 8:30pm on FOUR. Ever since Groening unleashed his follow-up to The Simpsons in 1999, the animated sci-fi series has had trouble finding its footing. It was on Fox. It was off Fox. People loved it. People hated it. Its ratings sank. Its DVD sales soared.

Then Comedy Central rebooted the show almost seven years after Fox pulled the plug, and now the series celebrates it 100 th episode. Built around the Planet Express team’s 100th transport – to the oldest remaining Astor family member, the episode will see a galaxy of laughs involving the Titanic, a mutant revolution, and the New Wave band Devo, who guest star in the episode as themselves!

Make sure not to miss this hilarity when Futurama celebrates its 100 th episode on Thursday, August 4 th at 8:30pm on FOUR.

Former Doctor Who actor Paul McGann has arrived in New Zealand for the upcoming Armageddon expo being held in Auckland this weekend.

McGann played the eighth incarnation of the famous BBC Doctor in a 1996 television movie alongside outgoing Doctor Sylvester McCoy and Eric Roberts.

The British actor said of the fans he often encounters at pop culture events: “Dr Who fans tend to clamour in my royal presence and shake a bit, and get a little bit sweaty.”

McGann will be joined at Armageddon this weekend by Futurama’s John DiMaggio (who voices Bender), Survivors’ Johnny Fairplay and Michael Biehn of Terminator.
