How Futurama Made Maths and Science Funny

By Casey Chan on at

Futurama may not make me laugh as hard as other comedies, but its vision of the future and all the shenanigans that come with it have always been enjoyable to watch (throughout all its various cancellations and comebacks).

Kaptain Kristian makes the case that Futurama is special because it was the “master of hiding brilliance in plain sight. Bridging the gap between comedy and arithmetic while bringing humanity to the science”.
Plus, the writing staff had three PhDs and seven masters degrees between them, so of course they were a right bunch of smarty pants.
