“Good news everyone…”

OK… so, Futurama might come back to TV.  As was reported on Paste’s blog

After being treated like a red-headed stepchild and mismanaged by the bumbling Fox network, Futurama, the sometimes uneven sci-fi comedy developed by Matt Groening, may return to the station’s line-up after all. The announcement comes by way of Billy West, who voiced Professor Farnsworth, Fry and Zapp Brannigan. [Read more over at Paste.]

Geeks who’d rather watch Futurama than do other things rejoice everywhere (warning: that link, while humorous, is not necessarily suitable for work).  Futurama had four seasons on Fox before being canceled.  Their run on Comedy Central’s Adult Swim and their recent straight-to-DVD movies have kept the dream alive, and as of now may make returning to primetime a good idea for Fox.

Speaking of geeks, also on Paste’s blog, Leonardo DiCaprio may bring back War Games (that 1983 chess-meets-world-destruction-meets-Keds movie that launched Matthew Broderick).  Cool…
