Sort of.  Latest word is that an upcoming episode is called "Future-Drama".  Now, I wonder what that could be a reference too?  wink

No word on any references within the episode though.

"When Bart writes slogans on T-shirts, he catches the attention of Goose Gladwell, a gag-gift entrepreneur, and soon becomes a T-shirt mogul; Homer feels he no longer has a place in the family."

^That's what my digital cable program guide says for this Sunday's episode. Although it could be wrong, but it's usually right. My firends are saying the latest episodes are crap, and I believe them. But now I am forced to watch the episodes, but only to see a possible Futurama reference. (Unless someone clarifies that rumor as being false. Then I'll stop watching The Simpsons.)

...uh yeah, read Layla's fanfic thread for an explanation.  In fact, you should do that anyway man, I should be getting paid for advertising...

Most likely, the episode name will be the only reference, and it will just be another future prediction episode.

That's a different one.  "Future-Drama" airs in a few months, and apparently is actually a future-prediction episode with Bart and Lisa graduating high school.  Its also not a rumor; the title itself comes from the Copyright database (where some new information about upcoming episodes is gathered) and the plot itself comes from one of the producers.

However, I would expect to see a few other Futurama references this season since they did a few last season.  And I wouldn't be be suprised if "Future-Drama" had a reference too, given that its both a futuristic episode and written by Matt Selman (a big Futurama fan, apparently).  And most of all, I wouldn't be suprised if Fry, Bender, Leela and the gang make a suprise appearance in the eventual Simpsons movie.....

Am I the only one who gets ridiculously excited by things like this? Oh, sorry.

Still, I'll be waiting for this one, 'cause I am just that geeky.

I didn't get the Futurama reference in the title until I said it out loud. Heh. I really hope there are more references in the Simpsons. Maybe we could use them to send subliminal messages to Fox. (Bring...back...Futurama...)  smile

*bump*

Hell, this episode is airing this Sunday, so I see nothing wrong with it.

In the previews, I saw a few cars that looked just like the ones from 'Futurama', and I think I saw one of those traveling tube things.

Here's a description from my cable company. (Although I'm pretty sure you could find a better one some place else.)

Professor Frink uses an astrology machine to ease Bart and Lisa's bickering, giving them a sneak peek at their final days of high school.

Here it is. The day we've been wating for, to see what will happen. A show that looks like it'll have a Futurama appearance for sure. I hope they don't mess anything up.

No, I checked the Simpsons site. This sunday is about Lisa taking a restraining order out on Bart. Nevermind. They changed it.

Very curious to see how this episode turns out, and if there's any direct Futurama references in it.  The fact that it's called "Futur-Drama" itself is pretty promising.    big grin

Unfortunately I won't be around to catch this episode, go figure.  But there looks to be quite a few framegrabs for it here, for whoever's interested.

Some of the framegrabs look very much like Futurama stuff. Example: The underwater room place looks kinda like the one in I, Roommate.

There better be 'Futurama' references. If not, I'd be very dissappointed. But even if there isn't, I won't do anything. I'll just be dissappointed.

If there are any Futurama references, it'll most likely be to time-travel or the future in general. It doesn't look like they're too far forward into the future in this episode. (Only 2013, I think.) Maybe some background shot of Fry in his cryotube, or something. I hope.

[Looks at LIC's post]...OH YOUR GOD! It was the Planet Express Ship sound! I think...

When I saw Bender I literally cried and jumped up and down. And I couldn't believe they got John's voice on it too. "You guys are my new best friends." Long live Bender. I just can't believe they had such a recognizable thing in there and voice. I was expecting something else. And I loved the Robocob thing, even though that's not the point of this thread

My only thing was if Futurama and The Simpsons are together in reality, then why was Bender there and had a full body when he should've been in Roswell, New Mexico as a head? Well, that doesn't really matter, I loved it all the less.

And also, another thing was the underwater apartment, as seen in I, Roommate. And the apartment looked kinda like the Planet Express Building.

Futurama isn't a reality in the Simpson universe. It's the tv show created by Matt Groening.

I know that. I was just saying that because of the Bender appearance. One of those things that you wonder about.

Anyway, I had another thing being that the future shower machine was similar to the What-If Machine.

A lot of things were similar. "The Forbidden Zone" reminded me of WNFHGB and My Three Suns. Then there's the hovercar. But the main thing is really Bender. Any other things could have been coincidences or really subtle references.

I was more thinking of any kind of delivery, with Bart to Fry and Apu to Farnsworth.

And "The Forbidden Zone" was also in ABBfT, making me think about that again.

The clams reminded me of the brainspawn.

*Laughs at Nasty and Cujoe*  laff

I missed the first 5 minutes, because I had to be the first to post in the trivia game, but that was a great Simpson's episode. I especially liked Milhouse, the Moe clones, and the flouder neighbors. And the whole ghost bit at the end. But the Bender thing made it great by itself.

Oh Nasty and Cujoe you should of seen it John DiMaggio did the voice of bender i think in the ep and there were other small things of futurama in it too.

PS why did everything change so much in like a couple years.
