Why do you like this?!

I was watching an episode from Futurama season 7 (it's back baby!) with the Mrs, and she is just amazed at how amused I was at the show. Honestly, I prefer the earlier seasons which were on Fox and not Comedy Central as there are too much allusions to sexual references.

In any case, I thought about it and hypothesized that the humor comes from the show depicting stereotypical concepts as opposed to more "realistic" scenarios given the premise of being the future. For example, the planet which had multiple tornadoes involved the Professor screaming "everyone to the basement!", and the next scene showed the crew scurrying to the basement, complete with a big wooden basement door seen in so many movies.

The Mrs looked at me, and sniped, "yeah, I can see why that's funny".

I laughed.
