When not at his day job, Aaron enjoys teaching Axis & Allies to his kids, writing sci-fi stories, playing classic space sims on Twitch, and riding around the American Midwest on his Harley.

Futurama World of Tomorrow Review (iOS, Android)

Futurama really should have gotten more seasons. Even as the Simpsons train continues on with no end in sight, Futurama fans just count ourselves lucky that we got a few extra seasons courtesy of Comedy Central.
