Don't talk about Futurama in public...

...Because it will just disappoint you.
(Hey, look, a blog that I may or may not use in future!)
I went out to get pizza with a couple co-workers last week, one of which I didn't know very well. The other co-worker knew both of us well, and he introduced the topic of Futurama. He knew that both me and the other guy watch the show.
ME: "Yeah, Futurama is such an amazing show."
HIM: "God, I just loved that iPhone episode. That Susan Boil thing was hilarious!"
Let's just say I discreetly changed the subject after that.
I kind of wanted to smack him across the forehead and ask him what's wrong with him. And throw a bar stool or two, for good measure. I've been told that that's rude, however, for some reason.
Humor is so subjective, it seems pointless to argue about someone's sense of humor. Different strokes, yada yada yada... But man, it's surprising how two people's tastes can differ so dramatically about the same topic. He picked quite possibly my least favorite thing about the last season.
So maybe there are thousands of people who still find new episodes of The Simpsons hilarious?
