The Republican leadership in Washington D.C. has released a statement applauding Fox studios for their recent decision to re-cast the voice talent in the freshly revived animated series "Futurama." The news that Fox is not prepared to pay the former cast members the salaries they were asking for and has instead decided to re-cast the show has been slammed by fans, who have largely reacted with disgust and disbelief, with many saying they will refuse to watch the budget series, while others view this as a slap in the face to devoted fans who have pushed so hard for the show to return.
However, Republicans in Washington have argued that the decision was a wise one: "In these tough times, we need cutbacks," said the statement by the GOP, "We applaud Fox for this bold decision, which demonstrates exactly the kind of thinking we need for the future. A lower budget and a new voice cast will stimulate fans' imaginations leading to a fresh growth of the show. This isn't the time to be investing in something of great quality because of some future belief that quality will bring profits."
