    TV Picks: 'Futurama,' 'The Hustle,' child activists, 'Wilfred'
    "Futurama" (Comedy Central, Wednesdays). Science fiction and comedy are "like that." (Writer crosses fingers to indicate closeness.) Each takes emerging facts to their extreme, often absurd conclusions; both are fundamentally philosophical — though each has time for exhilarating idiocy — and in imagining what might be, each takes the measure of what is. "1984" was about "1948," and "Brave New World" is a funny book. Created by Matt Groening, who invented "The Simpsons" and changed the world, and developed with David X. Cohen, "Futurama" fuses the two forms as if in the warp core of some spaceship I am imagining as I type. It has to some extent labored under the shadow of its more eligible look-alike older cousin and echoes it here and there — 20th-century pizza delivery boy Fry (Billy West) is, like Homer Simpson, a distractible lunkhead, while Bender (John DiMaggio) is the mechanical man Bart might have grown up to be had he been born a robot — but is very much its own creature, with its own interests. Its return this week, marking the second half of its seventh and final season, opens with back-to-back episodes: "2-D Blacktop" mixes a "Fast and Furious" takeoff with a brilliant riff on "Flatland" (this is the only series on television you're likely to encounter a line like "You kids and your topology"); "Fry and Leela's Big Fling" combines a "Planet of the Apes" riff with something I saw once on "Twilight Zone" (if memory serves) as Fry and sexy cyclops Leela (Katey Sagal) try to get alone.
