PEEL is getting to many of those annoying little question threads. With qusestions like these: "What episode is this from", "What scene is this from" and "In what episode does so and so say this".

So if you have a Futurama related question like that, feel free to ask it here. smile

Here's a question, not related to Futurama. Where have you been JDB? You become Starship Captain faster than me, then you leave. I was beginning to like you!

FACT: Most people who ask these annoying little questions are stupid n00bs.

FICTION: Stupid n00bs are actually going to look for a thread to post these questions in.

I was away for about 3 weeks or close to a month because something went wrong with our internet connection.
It was so screwed up! Somedays it would let me on... but then cut you off 2 minutes later. And somedays it wouldn't even let me on! So if you've been wondering where I was, Mystery Solved! But now I'm back and here to stay!  big grin

But really, I'm glad to have you back.   smile

hey if we're on a question thread, in one of the commentaries david cohen asks the audience to work out a mathmatical question and says can they e-mail the answer to him and they'll win a prize well i wonder if anybody has answered it?

it's in season3 might be roswell that ends well (don't quote me on that)

He asked the audience to figure out if Fry was able to get genetic material from himself, how much would he get, since he is his own grandpa.

if that was his real address he must get so much spam it's unreal! but if he only gets descent futurama fanatics like us e-mailing him i don't hink he should be too complacent.  after all if not for us his show would not have been any kind of success at all, but we all know we love him and all the futurama team, they are as gods who made that show!!!

also does anyone know why katey sagal never does commentaries for DVD's?

Quantum Leek: I have no idea. I read somewhere that it was because of scheduling conflicts.

But futufan has said that Sagal also won't be in the new Futurama DVD that's going to be released. That I don't understand. She's had more than enough opportunities to make time. (There has to be a time when she's free. Everyone needs a few days break.) But if she's not in this new DVD, then we probably won't hear her actually do a commentary for Futurama ever again. (Unless the show is renewed.)
I heard that Sagal said she likes Futurama though. So unless she was lying, that's a good thing. If I was her, I'd seize this chance. I'd try and make an appointment for a commentary record well in advance. (So she can be with the usual gang.)

i can't believe she's that busy either, and people like billy west,tress macneil and maurice lamarche do tonnes of stuff.  i mean they do so many voice jobs it's unreal yet they made time, maybe she's just lazy?

i ask seriously what in the world could be more important then futurmama? i tried e-mailing the cohen address but no reply as of yet, i wouldn't be surprised if it's not working now or if i was deleted as spam.     frown i wish i could just say hello to david cohen and tell him he's great!

p.s- to actually post a question in this question thread, i wonder how long fox have the rights to futurama for? because after theylose them i wonder will we see more episodes shown on t.v by smart stations?

Hopefully this thread will cut down on annoying threads and their oh-so-short lifespans. Yeah. Anyway, perhaps Katey's schedule conflicts stem from the fact that a lot of her other work is live-action, whereas Billy and John mostly do voice acting. I know nothing of TV actors' schedules, so that's just a theory.

No, it have something to do with people not knowing it exist. Believe me we've had dozens of these type of threads over the years and none of them work, because they don't get enough posts to stay on page 1.

Maybe we should change the title of this thread to "IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION, POST IT HERE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD," y'know something like that is bound to get through to even the...er, newbie-est of newbies. Yeah, whatever. >_>

z0idberg - It also has something to do with people being too damn lazy to use the Search function.

Anyhow, on Katey Sagal's absence from the commentary tracks; if it's not a scheduling conflict, maybe she just doesn't want to join the commentary. She might think she won't have anything interesting to say, she might not like listening to herself on the show, who knows. In the commentary for...I want to say it was "Future Stock", Billy West says something along the lines of dragging David Herman into the commentary group at gunpoint. So it may just be that some of the actors simply decline to participate for whatever reasons.

Kicked your ass.

What Episode is this Farnsworth quote from?
"No Fair! You changed the outcome by measuring it!"

Is that from 'TLOTF'? I'm not to sure.

I dunno, that seems like it could be an open invitation for spammers. And it'd put mods out of a job, seeing as there aren't many flame wars on here. (Not that the mods probably wouldn't mind having to close a few less pointless threads, I'm just sayin'.)

Nope, this version of UBB doesn't support "Sticky threads". The only way the thread can stay on the first page is if people post in it.

How do you become a new rank?

Edit-Do the Nibblonians say "There is another" or something like that in an episode? Or am I just thinking that they parodied Star Wars and they didn't?

Here on Peel? Your rank, as well as the stars relate to your post count.

For you that will be with the next post.

Check out this little FAQ to see when they come. Keep in mind though that spamming for ranking is not cool.  wink

I believe the line you're thinking of is "She must be The Other", spoken by Nibbler referring to Leela, from "The Why of Fry". I don't know much about Star Wars, though, so I can't help you on references, if any.

Damn UBB tags making me edit my posts...

I don't think it's a Star Wars reference. It woulda been caught by now. I'm pretty sure it was talking about a Nibblonian prophecy that we never got to see due to the series' cancellation. cry

Thanks for the help guys. See, I like this thread cuz you can ask questions that would usually be just a random thread but are now all in one thread!
And I think it might have been a reference by Yoda saying to Obi Wan "There is another" when talking about Leih.

**BUMP**

There has been lots of n00bs, or the politically correct title "new PEELers", around PEEL lately and they've been making alot of threads that have no real contribution or have been done. Since this thread was made for that, I'm bumping it so this problem can be prevented from happening.

Good thinking, Sir i_c. But so far, doesn't look like they're biting. Is it possible to change the thread's name at this point to make it more clear to *ahem* "new PEELers" what it's about?

I don't know if it is, would be a good thing for this thread though.

The other thing is that if it gets pushed to the 2nd page of the General Disscussion it'll be forgotten - unless you want to bump it everytime.  wink
