Although I disagree with that, although there's been a decline in standards from the Simpsons it's still much better than the vast majority of comedy programming.

The mantra of the Simpson fan!

Simply untrue. It's bloody awful these days.

I like the Simpsons, although it started quite weak (and apparently has also tailed off), whereas Futurama has been consistently hilarious from the first episode.
Futurama for me.

Ditto - Futurama. The Simpsons is great of course but it can be a bit moralistic and sappy sometimes but Futarama has no morales!

It's consistently brilliant but then i've not seen any recent series of Simpsons.

Actually Futurama is the only cartoon that has almost made me cry. The episode with Fry's dog, and the episode about his brother have 2 of the most heartwrenching ending scenes I've ever seen.

Almost? The one with his dog had me sobbing my eyes out.


Oh, and I love the way Fry pounds on Bender and calls him 'you.evil.metal.man!'

I may not have cried, but I was bummed out all the next day after I watched it. It also pissed me off a bit because they didn't have to show you an ending that sad.

Futurama has more engaging characters, more plot, and better evolution over time (in that time does pass, the mention how long Fry's been there, as opposed to Bart being 10 after well over a decade). It's also funnier.

When Futurama was canceled, I think The Simpsons should have gone then, if not before. It used to be amazing, but it's really lost it's way. Every episode is just "The Simpsons go to x country, and/or meet y celebrity guest". Futurama could have lasted a couple more seasons I think.

Certainly the appearance of Tony Blair as a special guest was the nadir of the program for me. But then that episode also had Lord Daftwager in it which, take as an individual gag, was as funny as any of the jokes written for the show.

Every episode of Futurama I've ever seen has bored me, and yet it did not exhibit the same drastic drop in quality as The Simpsons has...

That said, I'll still vote for The Simpsons on the strength of the first few seasons. When they were on their game, you would be hard-pressed to find a smarter, more clever programme, at least over here, and it could quite easily bring you to tears of laughter.

It may be a shadow of its former self, now, but it's like a favourite grandparent stricken with dementia: They may not be as funny, as intelligent, or as easy to handle as they once were, but they're still deserving of love and respect for who they were before.

Easily Futurama...
Although, had futurama got anywhere near 17 years, it could've been a close call!

We'll have to see how they stack up next to each other in 13 years time, then.
