Fry, a young Everyman, finds himself accidentally transported 1,000 years in the future. Just like right now, life in the future is a complex mix of the wonderful and horrible, where things are still laughable no matter how crazy they get. And against a backdrop of pesky aliens, exasperating robots and malfunctioning gadgets, people still struggle with the same daily anxieties of life and love . . . and, of course, traffic is still a nightmare!
In the second season, Valentine's Day turns into a nightmare for Fry after his head is surgically attached to Amy's body; the crew discovers the lost city of Atlantis where Fry falls hopelessly in love with mermaid; powerful alien beings threaten to devour all of mankind after the crew inadvertently introduces earthlings to the aliens’ offspring; and Al Gore, Stephen Hawking, and Nichelle Nichols come to the rescue when Fry inadvertently opens a rip in the space-time continuum.
