Futurama vznikla ľsťou. Matt Groening klamal

Komu sa zdaj Simpsonovci prli uhladen, nech si pozrie Futuramu. Oba animovan serily vytvoril Matt Groening, ale ten druh nie je vhodn pre deti.

Simpsonovci sa vysielali desa rokov, ke scenrista a ilustrtor Matt Groening ponkol americkej televznej stanici Fox svoj nov animovan seril. S kpou nebol problm, kto by nechcel nov seril od spenho tvorcu Homera a jeho rodiny?

Matt Groening napriek tomu pouil mal les. Je to nieo ako Simpsonovci v budcnosti, tvrdil a vedel preo. Po zhliadnut finlnej verzie sa vedenie zhrozilo, to, o videli, nemalo poda nich so spomnanm serilom ni spolon. Ale no, presviedal ich, je to len nov a originlne.

Vymanm prbehu o Philipovi J. Fryovi, roznaovi pizze v New Yorku, ktor sa neastnou nhodou ocitne v 31. storo, strvil Groening tri roky. S kolegom zo scenristickho tmu Simpsonovcov Davidom X. Cohenom naplnovali mnostvo postv, zpletiek a dejovch lni, niektor z nich dodnes nestihli poui.

Groening bol detailista, hodiny strvil rozmanm nad tm, i by mal ma robot Bender hlavu tvorcov, alebo ovlnu, i ak vek nos nakresli jednookej mutantke Leele. Predpokladal, e v roku 3000 bud roboty skr tvorcov, preto nakreslil Benderovu hlavu ovlnu. To zdrazn, e nihilista Bender je skutone straten existencia. Nedoprial mu ani dve antny namiesto u, s jednou na vrchole hlavy bude vyzera ete neschopnejie.

Drsnejia verzia Homera Simpsona

Hlavnou postavou mal by pvodne smoliar Fry, ktor sa na Silvestra 1999 omylom sm zmraz v laboratriu, kam prinesie pizzu, a preberie sa a v roku 2999.

Stretne drsn jednook mimozemanku Leelu, robota Bendera a zamestn sa v prepravnej intergalaktickej spolonosti Planet Express svojho prapra…prasynovca, profesora Huberta Farnswortha. A to dfal, e nov prostredie mu d ancu zaa nov ivot a zabudn na to, e namiesto kariry robil obyajnho poslka s pizzou.

Profesor Farnsworth doruuje tovar na rzne planty vo vesmre, je to spsob, akm si zarba na svoje blzniv experimenty. Nedvno oslvil 160 rokov, asto zabda, o om hovor a komu to hovor a s obubou pouva vetu Good news, everyone! (Dobr sprvy vetkm!), po ktorej nasleduj zl sprvy.

Divci si vak najviac obbili robota Bendera. Je robotickou a ovea drsnejou verziou Homera Simpsona, stelesnenm skazenosti, platnosti, morlneho padku a totlnej absencie svedomia a vitiek. Baterky si dobja pitm alkoholu, bez cigarety v stach ho vidie len mlokedy, miluje svoje neresti, klame a kradne, kadia chod. Na tele v rovni brucha m mal dvierka, kam vetko schovva, nem problm s okrdanm najblich ani s vytrhnutm kabelky starej dme na ulici.

Je to jeden z mla robotov v popkultre, hovor Groening, ktor nie je precitliven, zoenten slaboch ani bezcitn psychopat. M mnostvo emci.

Stelesuje vari kad zl vlastnos dnenho loveka.

iadna idylka rodinnho ivota

Futurama mala obsahova humor Simpsonovcov, ale bez obmedzen, nezameriava sa na rodinn ivot, by viac dobrodrun.

Simpsonovci s o deoch a zosobench rodioch. Futurama je o uoch medzi tm. U vyrstli, ale ete sa neusadili. Cez postavu Frya sme chceli opsa strasti a trpenia mladch, hovor Groening. Futurama mala by nieo ako projekt snov. Chceli sme ju vyrba bez stresu, zkosti a kompromisov, opisuje Groening.

To sa vak nestalo, bolestiam hlavy sa tvorcovia nevyhli.

Najviac starost im narobila domovsk stanica Fox, ktor vysielala aj Simpsonovcov. Nebola spokojn so sledovanosou ani s vrobou drahou ako pri Simpsonovcoch a po tyroch seznach ju ukonila.

udia vo Foxe Futuramu nikdy nepodporovali, nikdy sa im nepila, saoval sa Groening. Ale mlili sa. Je evidentn, e fanikovia Futuramu miluj, len ju nemu sledova. Pred pr mesiacmi sme vyhrali cenu za najlep animovan seril, ale doteraz mi nikto z Foxu negratuloval. Je to tajomn organizcia, nie s schopn poui telefn a aspo predstiera slunos.

Priiel i Stephen Hawking

Nepomohla ani petcia fanikov so 130-tisc podpismi, v roku 2003 prestala stanica Futuramu vysiela. V roku 2008 sa jej ujala televzia Comedy Central, pron prestvku tvorcovia vyplnili nakrcanm filmov, aby nestratili kontakt s divkmi.

V roku 2013 sa siedmou sriou seril definitvne skonil.

Za svoju existenciu zskal jedens nominci na cenu Emmy, z toho es premenil, vznikli tyri celoveern filmy a vystriedalo sa v om v podobe hlv v sklenench ndobch, mnostvo celebrt.

Svoje altereg so zmyslom pre sebakritiku si prili do tdia nadabova naprklad vedec Stephen Hawking, politik Al Gore, herci Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, hereka Lucy Liu i modelky Claudia Schiffer a Heidi Klum.

Futurama bol mimochodom nzov pavilnu spolonosti General Motors na Svetovej vstave 1936 v New Yorku. Vykresoval krajinu budcnosti a zskal vek ohlas.

Matt Groening bol v detstve naden itate sci-fi literatry, jeho brat vlastnil poetn kolekciu knh ponc Issacom Asimovom, Robertom Heinleinom a koniac Philipom K. Dickom a Robertom Sheckleym.

Odtia pochdzala moja inpircia pri kontruovan Futurama sveta, hovor Groening. Ako chlapec som si myslel, e bude asn, ke vyrastiem a vetky tie veci z knh sa bud skutone dia. Ale dospel som a vina futuristickch konceptov ma rozuuje.

Seril mu poda vlastnch slov poskytol monos vzda hold tomuto nru a zrove ho s chuou parodova.

On disc, accidents will happen




This space generally doesn’t spotlight a release that can only be categorized as a fiasco. But sometimes the thought of how it all went bad is so compellingly baffling, an exception has to be made. Which brings us to “Accidental Love” (2015). Jessica Biel stars as a Midwestern waitress who gets a construction nail lodged in her head and cheerily marches to D.C. to enlist junior congressman Jake Gyllenhaal’s help in forcing the health care system to make good. Formerly titled “Nailed,” the long-shelved, pre-Obamacare comedy does hold a certain fascination for the talent involved, starting with director David O. Russell. Credited under a pseudonym after quitting, Russell worked on the film before becoming a local fixture with “The Fighter,” “American Hustle,” and the upcoming Jennifer Lawrence-Bradley Cooper pairing “Joy” — but also long after becoming an established name. The movie was written by Kristin Gore — you’ll recall that Al’s daughter was once a “Futurama” staffer — and boasts a cast that also includes Catherine Keener, Tracy Morgan, and James Marsden. Gyllenhaal has always had interesting taste, and he and Biel manage to do something with a couple of broad scenes in which she throws herself at him, inhibitions hammered down by that nail. But the rest is stunningly inept, right down to the pointless dutch-angle camera tilts. (Where’s the Adam West cameo?) Naturally, we don’t get any “Anatomy of a Flop” featurettes to detail what happened. Still, should a health care romp ever seem like a good idea to anyone besides Michael Moore? (Millennium, $19.99; Blu-ray, $24.99)

COMEDY/MYSTERY

INHERENT VICE (2015)

Continue reading below

Paul Thomas Anderson (“There Will Be Blood”) indulges his affinity for Thomas Pynchon psychedelia by adapting this tangled yarn about a stoner P.I. (Joaquin Phoenix) trolling LA, from seedy beach bungalows to society spreads. Anderson’s comic noir tone is smart as always, but as is often the case, it just doesn’t speak to us in a big way. The Coen brothers delivered a similar vibe more entertainingly with “The Big Lebowski.” Josh Brolin gets the best ensemble gig as a “Dragnet”-
stiff old-school cop irked to be dealing with Phoenix’s “dirty hippie.” Extras: trailer assortment. (Warner, $28.98; Blu-ray, $35.99)

COMEDY

THE WEDDING RINGER (2015)

Kevin Hart finds a showcase right in tune with his pinball style, even if the movie just bangs out a crazy assortment of notes and hopes that it adds up to a hit. Josh Gad (“Frozen”) is a schlubby nice guy who’s about to marry, but has no groomsmen. So he turns to Hart’s smooth talker, who’s got a lucrative business as a best man for hire. Are we watching a gimmicky rom-com? A bromance? Yet another stab at topping Farrelly brothers raunch? Depends on the scene. Extras: line-o-rama improv and outtakes. (Sony, $30.99; Blu-ray, $34.99)

Titles are in stores Tuesday unless specified. Tom Russo can be reached

Top 10 Futurama Episodes That Will Blow Your Mind



Matt Groening’s sci-fi spoof Futurama has come to an end (again), but it remains beloved in the eyes of its many fans. Futurama was not only one of the funniest cartoons of all time, but it could also prove itself surprisingly deep and intelligent. Often, it could provide powerful emotion, inspirational messages, and mind-bending sci-fi concepts that would put the best of drama to shame. The following are the top ten Futurama episodes that will uplift your spirit, break your heart, or blow your mind.

Roswell That Ends Well

When the subject of time travel comes up, certain theories are always mentioned, such as the idea that if you were to kill your own grandfather, you would prevent your birth and cease to exist.

When the Planet Express crew is accidentally sent back to Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, Fry becomes obsessed with protecting the man he believes to be his grandfather. Being Fry, his efforts only lead to the poor man’s death.

A confused Fry later finds himself comforting the woman he thought was his grandmother, and… one thing leads to another.

The end result is this absolute gem of a line from Professor Farnsworth: “Oh, a lesson in not changing history from Mr. ‘I’m my own grandpa!’ Screw history!

Benderama

In this episode, the professor creates a machine capable of producing two smaller but otherwise identical copies of anything. When Bender gets his hands on it, he uses it to create millions of micro-Benders to do his bidding, but they soon threaten all life on Earth by consuming the planet’s resources.

What may surprise you is that this is based on a popular sci-fi concept that could actually be a legitimate concern for the real world. The so-called “grey goo” scenario predicts that the rise of nanotechnology may create a plague of self-replicating nanobots that would consume the entire planet.

Economists borrow idea from Futurama, want to give everyone €175 to boost …


1458



Although there appears to be green-shoots in Ireland’s economy, we’re still a long way off anything even close to the good ‘oul Celtic Tiger days.

As financial / economist types hash out the details about how best to get the economy up and running, one novel approach has been put forward by a group.

Their plan? Give everyone €175 a month for 19 months.

And yes, Futurama fans, there was an episode based on this idea.

The economists, which include our own Constantin Gurdgiev, believe that a direct approach to stimulate the economy would result in a far better return on investment.

So, we did a bit of digging. What can €175 get you?

 - You could spend a night in a decent hotel.

- You could buy a small enough TV.

- You could probably get a decent night out on the tiles.

- You can get a flight in a hot-air balloon. No, really.

Or, y’know, you could save up the €175 and splurge it on something else in time.

The economists believe that €175 for just over a year would allow Euro-citizens a chance to either pay down debt or allow them to spend it on something they usually wouldn’t, thus allowing for discretionary spending.

We trailed off when they said €175 and ‘free’.

Today in TV History: ‘Futurama’ Took Us to the Year 3000

Of all the great things about television, the greatest is that it’s on every single day. TV history is being made, day in and day out, in ways big and small. In an effort to better appreciate this history, we’re taking a look back, every day, at one particular TV milestone. 

IMPORTANT DATE IN TV HISTORY: March 28, 1999

PROGRAM ORIGINALLY AIRED ON THIS DATE: Futurama, “Space Pilot 3000″ (Season 1, Episode 1)

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT: When Futurama premiered, a good nine months before the Y2K bug was supposed to wipe out civilization as we knew it (depriving us all of Survivor, among other things), The Simpsons was already well into its TENTH season. Series creator Matt Groening was understandably looking to try something else, and that was the beloved semi-cult series Futurama.

What’s interesting about watching the Futurama pilot now is not only how spare it is (the only regular characters are Fry, Leela, Bender, and then the Professor at the end) but also how melancholy. Fry spends the episode trapped within the idea that no matter how far into the future he goes, he may not be able to shake the humdrum life as a delivery boy that is his fate. Leela is the only member of a race of one-eyed aliens that she’s ever met. Fry and Bender meet in line for a suicide booth. It’s not, like, Dan Harmon levels of existential depression or anything, but for a show that might have seemed more frivolous and disposable than its animated predecessor, that’s not quite the case.

Futurama would go on for seven seasons, including a surprise 4th-season revival six years after it was cancelled. The pilot hadn’t yet included my favorite character, Dr. Zoidberg, but it’s a likeable starting point, and it’s full of disembodied-heads-in-jars gags, and who doesn’t love those?
